Motorola Droid X :: Hands Free Car Bluetooth Not Working On 2.3.3?
Oct 11, 2011
I own a two DroidX's and for the last 3 months I have been experiencing an issue with my hands free in car bluetooth(infiniti G37). This all started right after I updated to 2.3.3 Gingerbread. The GB update killed the bluetooth on my car. Apparently it has been happening to many Nissan owners. I never had an issue with FROYO why am I having an issue with GB?
I pair the phone with my car. it pairs properly. the car picks up the phone and the phone picks up the car. The bluetooth connnects with no issues. While connected, I recieve a call the phone rings (sound comes out of the handset not the car speakers its supposed to ring through the speakers), the radio stops playing and the screen reads incoming call, but when I picking no audio comes out of the speakers. The phone says its connected, the car says its connected, but no audio is coming out of the speakers, audio is coming out of the handset only. It happened to both DRoidX's after the GB update.
Here's what I've done:
Contacted VZ wireless- they werent aware of the issue but plan to come up with a fix(that was three months ago and no fix available)
Reset the phone and it stays with 2.3.3 and still doesnt fix the issue. Tried a regular head set bluetooth(Jabra) and it works with the phone.I tried my wife's phone (Droid X with 2.2.2 Froyo), it worked on the car until recently(first week of Oct 2011) when the GB update was pushed.
I contacted Motorola and one rep says they have noted the issue and its being worked, another guy said he hasnt heard of the issue and that its probably my car, the third rep told me they are working the issue and to take my car to the dealer and have the security settings unlocked. I took my car to the infiniti dealer, they looked it over and said no issues with the car, the phone is the culprit.
I've just updated my C1-02 to software V06.15. Alas, the max volume for handsfree calls via Bluetooth is still far too low. It's unusable in a moving car. This problem already existed half a year ago in the previous two software versions. Also, the address book isn't transferred correctly. I use a TomTom Via 125 nav for handsfree calls, but Parrot users have reported the same problems with the C1-02.
Currently got a Lumia 800, which doesn't work with the bluetooth in my car. I'm looking at updating the stereo in the car with something that is compatible.Will the 820/920 need to have the same requirements to be met for bluetooth to work? (bluetooth v2.1 with EDR, HSP, HFP & PBAP)
I am using my xperia Z3 to connect with my helmet using the bluetooth connection.
At the begining, when I bought the xperia Z3, when pressing the helmet button to make a request to the phone, the "google lady" was asking about if I want to make a call or anything, it worked out, it was working as expected, but since the phone requested me to make some updates in the apps (also the google app), the google thing does not work anymore. It works the music, it works the google maps and navigation but If I want to "talk to the phone" the google lady says (in spanish "espera") "wait", a grey screen appears with the word "initializing" and actually does nothing. In a nutshell, the google thing does not work using blueetooth anymore. Then I have to stop to drive and manually make the call which is not ideal when you are travelling...
My Imagio won't pair with the factory hands-free Bluetooth in my 2010 Nissan Frontier. Everything goes fine until I enter the requested PIN, at which point the Frontier tells me "invalid PIN". I'm entering the correct sequence.The phone pairs ok with our 2007 Nissan Altima, and paired mostly-ok with my prior 2007 Nissan Sentra, other than the annoying but tolerable delayed hang-up problem that has been documented by others.Our LG phones pair fine with the Frontier.HTC tells me it is a Nissan problem. I was able to talk with a Nissan Bluetooth specialist who told me my phone has not yet been tested for compatibility (nor had the LG's that pair ok) and "probably is not compatible". Finger pointing both ways.
The phone pairs ok with the Altima and other hands-free devices.I think it is related to the Imagio Bluetooth stack implementation coupled with a not-totally-compliant Nissan interface. I suspect that the phone is sending the PIN in some sort of data stream that confuses the Frontier receiver.Does anyone have any suggestions for diagnosing this or making it work? Is there some sort of packet/frame monitor for Bluetooth available that would let me view the data packets being exchanged?
I have a Torch 9860 that has problems with my new 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe. I can pair it with the bluetooth in the car, and it will sometimes keep the connection on the next trip, but usually I get a 'connection failed' message.If I revert to the previous OS version, the problem goes away. I had to have the phone replaced recently, though, and the problem is back. It works great with a Jabra earpiece, but not with the car. I could do the same downgrade, but I would prefer not to.
I have pair my new E71 to my bluetooth hands free kit in my Mitsubishi Outlander and it receives calls fine. However, I can't use the cars bluetooth functions to dial out and I have to use the phone to start the call and then it links into the hands free kit. The car allows me to dial numbers on voice operation but it seems to fail to link to the phone to make the call.
I want to buy a bluetooth handsfree kit for my Iphone 3 gs. How can I check the specifications needed Blue tooth V2.1 EDR Operating frquency band : 2.4GHz- 2.48GHz unlicensed ISM needed. Will my iphone work with bluetooth?
I have tried to connect my Blackberry Torch to my hands-free device in my car through bluetooth but it not possible. It seems to connect for a couple of minutes (even starts to syncronize the agenda) but suddenly it appears a message sayint the conexion has been lost.I have tried several things (make the blackberry listen to the device car, delete all the contacts in my agenda, ...).I am able to connect my blackberry to other bluetooth devices and I am able to connect my car dvices to other phones, but I can't connect both together. I ahve talked to the Volvo dealer and they told me there is a compatibility issue when using a SIM dual card?
I have a SG11 + hands free bluetooth wotsit that I attach to my sun screen visor in the car - works well for call - no probs. My car doesn't have bluetooth so cannot link to my CD player - but can I play music through the handsfree easily? The other sounds such as driving mode comes through the handsfree ok. What settings do I need to twiddle with to play music through it? I have samsung car dock and would like to play music via bluetooth hands free from phone? Make-a-da-sense?
The radio/navigation system in my Elantra failed and was replaced. Upon trying to synch the Bold to the replacement, they appear to successfully connect but the contacts do not upload and when I take or receive a call, an Application.exe error message comes up on the Elantra screen. The service manager successfully synched an iPhone to the same system with no problems. The original radio worked fine with the Bold, so this is very frustrating. Because the iPhone worked OK, the service manager is inclined to say it's not the car system, it's the Blackberry -- maybe the upgraded OS software. The Bluetooth works fine with the Jawbone earpiece, which I've been using in the car while waiting for the new radio/Nav/handsfree system.
I have a problem with c6 and bh-105. How to get call directly to Bluetooth hands-free? User manual says "press answer on headset and hold 2 seconds". I did it, but when call is ended, new call goes to phone again, not to headset When I am calling someone, there is similar situation. I must hold answer key for 2 secs to get call to bluetooth...How to set up this to send a call directly to bluetooth by default ?
Just got my SGs2 last week and this is my first post I paired it with the bluetooth hands-free in my car but when I hooked up my in-car charger the blue-tooth connection switched off.Given the poor battery life I need to charge it in the car and for safety reasons I need the hands-free.
After latest update that brought us pinch-zoom I've got issue with using the phone with my in-car Bluetooth handsfree. It happens during call - it all works great up to some point when BT connection seems to "hang" so both phone and car BT thinks in's still active while it's not. After I move the call to the phone and finish conversation, BT in the phone gets turned off and it never turns on again until I reboot the phone. This is pretty annoying as I spend 2+ hrs daily in the car and I live in Ontario, Canada which has a law against using cellphones during driving except with handsfree.
I am trying to get my Jabra Freeway to operate correctly with my SGSII.Although in my list of contacts on my phone I have configured the settings to only show one set of contacts, (the ones I sync with google) my Jabra Freeway sees the other two sets of contacts. The ones on my sim card and the ones (I think) on my phone).How can I get rid of the sim and phone contacts but just keep the ones synced with Google so that when I try and make a voice operated call via my Jabra Freeway, I am not told I have 3 contacts with the name I want to call.
Have just got my new X6 and its great except that i am having problems with my connection to my bluetooth car kit. It connects fine and has paired with it but it seems to disconnecting every 25 seconds or so and then reconnecting 25 seconds later. Its driving me bananas cos each time it does it the radio cuts out. If i am on a call it seems to keep connection. I fell i may have missed a setting somewhere but cant find anything about this.
just got an Atrix and found it can't work well with my motorola T215 hands-free device. T215 can't activate voice dial when Atrix screen is off (sleep mode?). Any advice how to make it work as it's not safe to unlocked the phone while driving and make a call (though true the data of the phone is much more safer than the driver now!)
Why i can't received my file with saving it on my media card ? but i can save with my device memory, when i tried to save on my media card, come out this word "Transfer Failed. See the manual for your Bluetooth hands-free device"I've reboot my Blackberry and i tried again and again, it still can't worked.
I have just moved from S2 to S5 (and love it!) I seem to be missing 1 option tho, on the S2 I would plug to AUX port on car stereo from headphone jack (straight AUX cable - nothing fancy) and could listen to music and hear calls via car speakers, also on the call my phone mic would pick up my voice so with the phone on the dash mount I could easily make/receive calls, on the S5 however the mic seems to be muted when aux cable plugged in (same with headphones) and I have to unplug the cable or headphones to have the recipient hear me, am I missing a setting somewhere?
I upgraded to the 7.1 OS last week, and now my vehicle's handsfree link is no longer handsfree. I have deleted and re-paired the phone, but no change. I can use the vehicle's speaker and microphone, but i must dial and hang up the calls by actually using the handset and not the controls in the vehicle..so no longer "handsfree".
Is there a way to connect to a hands free device in vehicle without waiting each time to push the yes or no connect button?In other words I want my phone 9810 to auto connect each time I get in vehicle.
I communicate w/ person owning 4s iPhone. I communicate with iPhone 4 and iPad through iMessage -is there simple way to send audio message for hands free retrieval to 4S unit? And how if so, can they SIMPLY retrieve and return.
