    Bluetooth Pairing/Functionality...

    I'm have an iPhone 4 and am looking at upgrading to something a little newer. One of my biggest irritations is the deafening tone that the iPhone sends to the STS most of the time it makes it's first call since ignition on. I'm looking toward the Samsung Galaxy S4. Anyone here have experience with this? Any known problems pairing or history of that horrible sound on first call? I'm not too interested in selecting a phone that doesn't play well with the STS.

    I have a i5 and it's fine. I have not had any issues. Only thing I don't like is it not pairing itself very time I get in the car. I have to pair it manually every time. But as far as sound issues and stuff I have no complaints

    Yeah that buzz tone is VERY annoying!!!

    The needing to pair all the time is because you need to see the "default" device on the car to tell it to connect to that phone by default.

    I moved to the HTC One rather than the S4 due to the USA model S4 being neutered. The UK model comes with an 8 core processor, which the USA model is only 4 core.
    I figured since the One and the S4 are both a 4 core phone I might as well get the phone that has decent speakers on it and the One was chosen. I do miss the iPhone integration though. So I tether my phones together so I have Pandora from the iPhone integrated into the nav.

    Try this, Start your car, (Not moving )and let the screen default to whatever screen and:
    press config, then bluetooth, Highlight your phone,then select it,
    when you see your device, press default, it will underline,
    your device, then next time it (Should) auto connect.
    I have an OLDER phone, phone only,
    Not even a camera, (remember those)
    And even that, it sometimes does not connect,
    If I am on a longer trip, I check it connected FIRST.
    Happy Motoring

    same exact issue I have

    phone works fine with my company car through...A Ford with their Sync system

    to be honest I have given up on the STS bluetooth a few years ago...its never played well with any phone I had

    Re: Bluetooth Pairing/Functionality...

    I don't have much trouble, but my wife does. She has one caller who just simply can't talk with her through the STS Bluetooth. Weird.

    ----------

    Both phones are LG; hers is newer!

    Anyone who is having issues with their phone not automatically connecting look up at subsailor613's last comment.

    On an other note, people who talk to me when I'm using bluetooth complain that they hear themselves echo.

    Mine connects automatically (Razor M).

    Though at times, if I'm listening to a cd, the music doesn't get muted. I have to hang up on the person, mute the music manually and then call them back. It happens about 30% of the time (when listening to CD's).

    I know for a fact iPhone 3GS and 5 pair automatically as well. And yes there is the occasional screw up like malatu says.

    While connected on one of these calls, lower the volume (either by steering wheel controls or dash control) until it gets hard for one of the call participants to hear the other. Turn it back up just a bit. Hang up & try again.

    Any better?

    I've found there's a tendancy to turn it up the STS Bluetooth too much and your caller is hearing themselves through your speakers. Digital cell phones may have outstanding call clarity and supress noise, but there's latency in the conversation. I think it's another example of 'negative progress'.

    Last weekend I installed a Lock Pick in my 07' STS. Since that time my Bluetooth function has not worked at all. My navigation still works fine. Any suggestions. Thanks

    Capone, I'd post that issue again, only in the official STS lockpick thread. See link below.

    I have the Galaxy S4 and before that the EVO 3d and both of my phone had an echo in them. I don't even try connect my phones to bluetooth anymore it was so bad. I will try this little tip and see if it helps. Thanks
