Connecting a telephone

No phone can be connected to the hands-free phone system if it has not first been paired. For further information, please refer to the section on “Pairing and unpairing a telephone”.

Your phone must be connected to the hands-free phone system in order to use all its functions.

Automatic connection

Once the multimedia system is started, the hands-free phone system searches for any paired phones with Bluetooth® activated nearby. The system automatically downloads the data for the last telephone connected (phonebook, music, etc.).

Note: if a call is ongoing while the telephone is being connected, it will automatically be transferred to the vehicle loudspeakers.

Note: Upon the automatic connection of your telephone to the multimedia system, data downloads (phonebook, music, contacts, etc.) will only be enabled if you previously allowed data sharing when pairing your telephone to the multimedia system. For further information, please refer to the section on “Pairing and unpairing a telephone”.

Manual connection

To connect a Bluetooth® telephone to the multimedia system, press the 1 shortcut from any menu. A list of telephones already paired is displayed.

Select the telephone that you wish to connect to and make sure it has Bluetooth® activated and that it is set to “Visible”.

Changing a connected telephone

To change the connected telephone, you will first have to pair more than one telephone.
