    2012 SRX importing phonebook

    I thought starting in 2011, you were able to import your cell phone contacts onto the NAV screen of the SRX. I don't see this option available. I have a 2012 Luxury package AWD...

    It simply reads your address book automatically for what ever phone is connected. In a way it does download it, but it is more like caching a Web page on a computer. It refreshes every time you connect, but does not retain the info long term. In a lot of ways it is better than a download.

    Re: 2012 SRX importing phonebook

    I am not even getting the phonebook option when I hit the phone button to the right of the navigation screen. I also tried a new Samsung flip phone from Verizon. Could this be a hardware problem with the car? It's a 2012 SRX luxury edition.

    I don't have this feature, so I can't help you out. This may sound like a silly question and I'm not being facetious, but did you look this up in the owner's manual?

    Re: 2012 SRX importing phonebook

    I had to ask because I've seen newbies on here who ask questions just because they're too lazy to look it up in the manual. I would suggest trying another phone. If a different phone works, there may be a conflict with your version of Android. Ice Cream Sandwich is right around the corner. It should change everything. Maybe for the better. Maybe for the worse. We'll just have to wait and see. If a different phone doesn't work either, it sounds like a radio software re-flash is in order.

    FWIW, the phonebook feature works on our 2012 SRX on my Blackberry Tourch and my Wife's iphone 4.

    I don't want to point out the obvious and insult anyone here, but you did do a Bluetooth pairing of your phone to the car, right?

    Re: 2012 SRX importing phonebook

    Not for anything but some people are really rude in their replys...Yes, I did pair my sony xperia arc to the 2012 SRX...It works fine but the phonebook doesn't appear. A message at the top of the phone appears "Phonebook transfer request" but nothing happens. Earlier today, I tested by blackberry and the phonebook appeared. The problem may have something to do with Android or a second party software may be needed to complete the transfer.

    Re: 2012 SRX importing phonebook

    I got this out of the owners manual for our 2012 SRX I downloaded. For some reason your phone may not support the phone book feature.

    Making a Call Using
    Phone Book

    For cell phones that support the
    phone book feature, the Bluetooth
    system can use the contacts stored
    on your cell phone to make calls.
    See your cell phone's owner's guide
    or contact your wireless provider to
    find out if this feature is supported
    by your phone.
    When a cell phone supports the
    phone book feature, the Phone
    Book and Call Lists menus are
    automatically available.
    The Phone Book menu allows you
    to access the phone book stored in
    the cell phone to make a call.
    The Call Lists menu allows you to
    access the phone numbers from the
    Incoming Calls, Outgoing Calls, and
    Missed Calls menus on your cell
    phone to make a call.

    To make a call using the Phone
    Book menu:

    1. Press the PHONE button twice.
    2. Select Phone Book.
    3. Search through the list by
    selecting the letter group the
    phone book entry begins with,
    or press the SELECT button to
    scroll through the entire list of
    names/numbers in the
    phone book.

Once I completed this, the phonebook appeared on the nav screen and it works perfect. So anyone with an Android phone might want to try this.

    All of us 2010 SRX owners are envious of all this "importing phonebook" discussion. It's a high class problem.

    A work-around to the phone book for all you Android users out there....

    You can use the Voice Pass-Thru capability on the SRX to talk to your phone directly using the exact same phone commands you would as if you're speaking to the phone.

    This way you don't have to store an addition "tag" for each person in the SRX. It's all described in the manual for the 2010 model so I won't bore you with the gory details here. If you have the online manual for the 2010 SRX, it's on in section 6-60 and it's titled "Voice Pass-Thru".
