    Bluetooth issue w/ iPhone5...

    When I had my iPhone4, bluetooth would automatically connect. With the iPhone5, I have to always manually make it connect. It's paired but I have to go into my 5 and actually make it connect. Sometimes even when I try to make it connect, it won't and I have to try a couple of times.

    Is there a way where I can make the 5 connect automatically?

    Thanks in advance.

    try deleting the phone and then connect it using only the steering wheel controls.

    Bluetooth issue w/ iPhone5...

    I can't figure out how to pair via steering controls... I did however delete everything on the phone and on the radio. Still have to manually connect, no auto connect. I also turned the car off and the phone off prior to pairing again.

    If you just hit the button that is the phone being taken off the hook, it will walk you through with menus.

    What he said. I had a 4 then got the 4s, in order for it to manually connect you have to do the pairing through the steering wheel.

    never had that issue. although people on the other end of my calls always tell me it sound like im in a tunnel talking on my phone from 5 feet away. apparently the stock bluetooth setup isnt the best quality. and my iphone-5 when bluetooth streaming music it cuts in and out repeatedly. its pretty annoying actually to have a bluetooth car with calls and audio that i cant even use

    I get the same complaints. It's worse when u have a roof rack, they can hear the wind noise. I'm thinking of upgrading my unit soon.

    true, but I would rather drive than chit chat on the phone

    I'm not familiar with the iphone but my pandora thru BT (droid bionic) works fine for me. I would try deleting all
    the paired items associated with the car and phone and pairing again.
