    Lightbulb Bluetooth experts !

    BTW I have NAV w/Upgraded NAV.
    I have enjoyed Connection to the STS with my "OLD" phone,
    No, Not a smart phone, so I am upgrading and my "NEW" phone has
    Bluetooth 2.1 , it pairs, it places the call, BUT, when the voice says,
    dialing, it comes back with NO PHONE CONNECTED, I reconnect,
    and it does the same thing ? Have reloaded it several times, meaning,
    deleted it, re-paired and re-connected, does the same thing ?
    Any ideas ? Would like it to reconnect to work.
    Happy New Year and Happy Motoring.
    Thanks

    "BTW I have NAV w/Upgraded NAV."
    Does that mean you added Nav to a non Nav car?

    Do you still have your old phone laying around? does it still work with the car?

    Re: Bluetooth experts !

    I Have OEM NAV with the latest firmware done.
    I tried the OLD phone and it still works flawlessly,
    I once again deleted the NEW one, and re-paired, it.
    it pairs OK, it shows up on the Nav Screen, and I defaulted it,(Underline)
    Using same command as with OLD phone, Phone Dial name, it plays my voice,
    Say YES or NO, I say YES, dialing.........Nothing
    it goes through everything, and says, dialing, and nothing happens ?
    ON SETUP,it asked for the code, and I Entered it.
    Phone asks do you want to connect to STS, I enter "YES"
    I don't have the option Auto connection.
    It's a bar phone.
    No, Not that kind of bar !
    Thanks

    Re: Bluetooth experts !

    What if someone calls the new phone while it's paired?

    Re: Bluetooth experts !

    The "PHONE" rings, and the car does NOTHING ?
    So it will NOT call out or in, using the STS !
    While the phone is ringing, I even hit the VR Button on the
    steering wheel, Like to answer it, and the voice just comes on,
    like there is NO phone connected.
    It does PAIR with the STS, and the phone even asks,
    "Do you want to connect with the STS" ? I always hit yes, on the phone.
    I have tried every which way I can think of, NOTHING.
    Last resort, I will dis-Connect the battery cable, to reset it.
    Bad weather coming, SO, After it passes.
    It even has trouble connecting with a Bluetooth Headset,
    I am going to try another PHONE with 2.1 to see if this one is defective.
    Will post results here. Thanks for ALL your help.
    HELP !

    Re: Bluetooth experts !

    The phone asks to pair? Once paired, the phone shouldn't ask again.

    Do you have other headset devices paired with the phone? Any in range?

    None, That is the only one. As it attempts to dial,
    it disconnects, so re-pairing is necessary to get it on the screen as default,again
    Thanks

    Has the Nav gotten the upgrade?
    What kind of phone is it?
    Vintage?

    Yes, The Nav HAS the Firmware upgrade.
    the phone is the BLU TANK T191 or T190,
    they are essentially the SAME.
    Bluetooth 2.1.
    Thanks

    Re: Bluetooth experts !

    Bluetooth is a standard that is not that clearly defined and has been evolving for a long time. There are numerous devices that do not operate well together. I'm not surprised by glitches in the performance of anything Bluetooth.

    No offense intended but its nice to see someone who is much older keeping up with the times.
    Unfortunately BT has been ever evolving and the STS probably uses the 1.0 revision or perhaps even a "draft" version (read that as beta).

    I have been working in practically everything electronic from guided missiles, through main frame computers and newspaper pagination systems to children's toys since the early 1960's with some sidetracks to aircraft engine overhaul and aircraft ground equipment.
