Media Bluetooth

Registering a Bluetooth® device

Updated 7/23/2018

It is possible to have two Bluetooth® devices connected simultaneously. One phone and one media device, which you can switch between. It is also possible to call with the phone and simultaneously stream audio files. It is possible to connect the car to the Internet via the mobile phone's Internet connection.

A maximum of 15 Bluetooth® devices can be registered. Registration is performed once per device. After registration the device no longer needs to be visible/searchable, but only has Bluetooth® activated.

Note

If the phone's operating system is updated then it is possible that the registration of the phone is interrupted. In which case, disconnect the phone, see Removing a Bluetooth® device and then reconnect it.

Connecting an external device takes place in different ways depending on whether or not the device has been connected previously. The connection options below presume that this is the first time the device is being connected (registered) and that no other device is connected. The connection options show the connection of a phone. Connecting a media device is performed in the same way, but starting from the main source MEDIA.

There are two possible ways of connecting devices, either search for the external device from the car, or search for the car from the external device. If one option does not work then try with the other.

If you are not already in the normal view for the phone, press TEL in the centre console.
