Connecting a phone to the car via Bluetooth for the first time

Connect a phone with Bluetooth activated to then be able to make calls from the car, send/receive messages, play back media wirelessly and connect the car to the Internet.

It is possible to have two Bluetooth devices connected at once, in which case one of them can only play back wirelessly. The most recently connected phone will automatically be connected to make calls, send/receive messages, play back media and provide an Internet connection. It is possible to change what the phone is to be used for under Bluetooth Devices via the settings menu in the centre display's top view. Your mobile phone needs to be equipped with Bluetooth and support tethering.

After the device has been connected/registered a first time via Bluetooth, it no longer needs to be visible/discoverable, but only have Bluetooth activated. A maximum of 20 connected Bluetooth devices can be stored in the car.

There are two options for connecting. Either search the phone from the car or search the car from the phone.

Option 1 - search phone from car

Make the phone searchable/visible via Bluetooth.

Open the phone tile in the centre display.

  • If there is no phone connected to the car, tap on Add phone.
  • If there is a phone connected to the car, tap on Change. In the pop-up window, tap on Add phone.

Available Bluetooth devices are listed. The list is updated as new devices are detected.

Tap on the name of the phone to be connected.

Check that the specified number code in the car matches that in the phone. In which case, choose to accept in both places.

On the phone, choose to accept or reject any options for phone contacts and messages.
