    Default bluetooth car pairing problem

    2010 VW GTI. Has always paired no problem with all other previous phones. Doesn't discover the N2 for some reason though. Would bluetooth 4 have anything to do with that? I can't think so - should be backwards compatible with whatever the car has. Then again, we are talking about VW und technik Deutsche which can suck based on personal previous experience with anything built in Wolfsburg I won't bore you with the radio that locked itself out randomly or alarm systems that armed themselves and then went off while driving down the interstate........

    Well FWIW I sell Acuras and I had a client who couldn't get their car to import their contacts from a GS3. Our cars don't usually have that problem. Idk if they're related issues though.

    My Camry works fine but forget using blue tooth if you connect using blue tooth if you connect via a audio cable for media.

    No, it pairs and works with an old Motorola BT headset perfectly so not that. Thanks, I will actually try the dealer next week, gotta take car in anyway for service. See if they can have any better luck than me.

    Could be a firmware update for the car's BT? Good luck at the dealership, hopefully they can figure it out for you!

    Operator error (i.e. big DUH on my part ). Fire up bluetooth, then make sure you CHECK the box that says something like "you want your device to be visible to everything in the universe" - aka discoverable, then click scan. If you don't check the box, the very fine print (thanks Google) notifies you that "this device will only be visible to other paired devices". It's early in the morning, I'm working on my first cup of coffee - guess I'm entitled to the occasional brain fart huh?

    I had same problem initially with Acura BT (brand new) and the Note. Finally it paired, but now it drops and reconnects every 30 seconds. Very annoying especially when trying to actually have a phone conversation.
