Before my phone would automatically sync up when i got into the car:mad: My music would start playing, or my call I was on would auto transfer to my bluetooth in around 15 seconds. Not it is not connecting at all or taking about 2 minutes to pair. Am i not doing something right? My last phone was done by the dealer but I would prefer not to go into them if possible.

I went through the syncing and put the password in. Screen reads paired.
Not sure if I'm missing anything.

Thanks for any help

Well you can re-try the whole thing? Delete all the phones stored on there currently, and try to repair your phone.
Just a thought?

I believe the pairing key is 0000?

Did you update to iOS5 yet? I just did it yesterday and noticed that it now streams track information (and some other things like repeat and random settings). Maybe the new software will kick it back to normal.

So this worked for me.

First I renamed my phone in iTunes by adding II to the end of name.

Next I used the handsfree method to list what phones were in system. Even though I thought it had deleted them all using the headunit way... it didn't. It listed it again so I completely deleted all of the phones.

After clearing all names through handsfree way( on steering wheel) I finally re-paired it using the voice commands.

Everything seems to be working like normal again:) hope this helps

Had the same issue. Deleted the phone from the bluetooth (go through setup to kill). Make sure you name the new phone something different. Had issues until a changed the name on the new phone. Works great now. IOS5 also works great.

Good luck

My phone (Droid) doesn't connect when I get into my WRX, It says it's paired but I have to go into Bluetooth in my phone and manually connect it, even when my BT in on, etc. I've read up on this, can't seem to get it going, any thoughts?

Also, don't like that just the number comes up across the head unit not the callers name as in my phone book? Would this be a sync issue?

This is the way mine is as well... though I didn't assume anything was wrong. Maybe iPhone users can correct me but I believe the Bluetooth tech in the car doesn't sync your phone book... it just spits out the number of the incoming/outgoing call.

Not sure what to do about it pairing right up though. I've not had this issue (EVO 4G) with mine... always seems to pair up after a couple of seconds. You've re-paired it I assume?

Same problem when I went from my BB to the new iPhone 4s. Just re-connected the phone to the car as if the car was never hooked up to a phone previously. I even changed the passcode once just to be safe but I doubt you would have to do that step to make the bluetooth connect. Everything seems to work fine now.

Also, don't like that just the number comes up across the head unit not the callers name as in my phone book? Would this be a sync issue?
From what I understand you need to manually plug names into the car for it to work. Theres no sync option for the car with your contacts...

The BT system isn't that top of the line. More of a fancy headset than a computer linking to your phone and accessing all the data. When connected correctly it will see incoming calls but it doesn't know what the phone knows about that number.

I connected my Samsung Charge pretty easily. Only problem I had was that it would connect as a phone and a music player, starting up the music I had on my phone and playing it through the phone speaker since I wasn't using the BT connection on the Head unit. When connected to the car though I was able to select for the connection to be either for phone or for music player.

From what I have read, no way to sync the phone book.... you have to add it manually. As for connecting, make sure you have your phone set to auto connect, and the car unit set to auto connect. Both have this setting somewhere. My Droid3 and head unit connect automatically without issue (for the phone atleast, still working on the BT music streaming)

I haven't messed around with it too much, but I have unpaired and reconnected it (like it was never connected before) but still not connecting automatically, ill tweak it later when I toss in my new 9005s. For your music, is your phone connected to "phone and media" or just phone, make sure it's both, sometimes It just connects the phone, without the music. I'm sure you'll figure it out.

THIS IS POSSIBLE!!!!!!

So I started playing with the BT features today after work....I got my Droid 3 to sync the contact list to my navi. Not sure if this is the only way, but it is what I used, and it worked!

First, I installed an app called Bluetooth file transfer (free app). I added it as a widget to the home screen. This will allow you to enable BT as well as BT-FTP (send files) and BT-OPP (to have other devices send commands to your phone). Widget looks like this, enable the three I circled:

Then on the car, follow the green circles on your navi starting from the menu




at this point, back on your phone. pull up your contacts

press your menu button and select to share name cards

at this point you select which contact to share (done with check marks). after finishing your selections press done and you will be asked how you want to share

then what device to share with

After your transfer is complete, the navi will have your contacts



Now I just need to get the audio streaming working.

I would assume there is a way to do this with an iPhone, but I never drank Steve's Cool-aid :p

Does this work on the non-navi systems? Also, is there a way to make it display the name of the caller rather than the phone number. It never made sense to me why it shows the number rather than the name. And if it can't show the name why can't it at least say who is calling.

Running on 11 WRX Premium with an HTC Evo 4G

- Thanks

Woot woot.

Good call on the exporting option from the phones contact book.

From the 2011 non navi HU:

-Press the phone button to start the voice commands
-Say "Phonebook"
-Say "Add entry"
-Say "By phone"
-Navigate to your phones transfer menu for Namecards via Bluetooth, this should be possible with any phone I would hope
-Select the number to transfer, on my phone this came before selecting to transfer via Bluetooth
-Say "Confirm"
-and wait for the phone to transfer to the car

Unfortunately it appears that only one contact will transfer at a time, individually. For anyone with many contacts this will take some time.


For playing music from your phone:

-From the phones Bluetooth menu, find your car as a Bluetooth device. My is called CAR M_MEDIA.
-Access the options for that device, if I press on the CAR M_MEDIA for a second a menu comes up and I select 'Options'
-Here I can select 'Connect', 'Phone', 'Media'. Selecting media here will allow the HU to control the phones media player.

And it may be possible that if 'Phone' here is unselected than perhaps it won't pair for phone calls. I'm not sure of this haven't tried breaking mine to fix it. :)

^^ Yep. Exactly what he said for the part on transferring phone contacts. It does suck that I have to individually put them in. But at least the names show up now and I don't have to look @ my phone to find out whos calling anymore.

Well done people. Well done.
