PAIRING AND CONNECTING USING THE PHONE

WARNING

Make sure the relevant safety warnings have been read and understood before operating the phone features. See PHONE SAFETY.

NOTES

The process of pairing and connecting with the vehicle, from the phone, varies depending on the type of phone used.

Pairing and connecting a phone for the first time:

  1. Switch the ignition on and make sure that the touchscreen is active.

  2. When pairing a device for the first time, select ADD DEVICE from the phone tile on the home screen. See TOUCHSCREEN HOME MENU.

  3. Select Bluetooth. The vehicle's Bluetooth® wireless technology device is now discoverable.

  4. Using the phone, search for Bluetooth devices. On some phones, this is referred to as a new paired device. See the phone's operating instructions for further information. The vehicle's discoverable Bluetooth name is the same as the vehicle's name.

  5. When the vehicle's name is discovered, follow the on-screen instructions. Select Yes, when prompted, to confirm the pairing. Alternatively, some older phones request a PIN to be entered. Either enter the PIN 1234, or select Yes, to confirm that the PIN displayed on the phone matches the vehicle's PIN.

  6. If there is a prompt for a phonebook, contacts, or messages download, accept it. See CONTACTS and RECEIVING TEXT MESSAGES.

  7. Once the phone is paired and connected to the system, select the X icon or the phone icon.
