    Question Problems with Bluetooth Handsfree Connection

    Advertisement



    Has anyone tried to connect their 8100 to a Ford Bluetooth Handsfree Kit as factory fitted to Mondeo 2006 model. The problem I have is that the connection is fine, but when the phone rings or you try to make a call the stereo does not detect the 8100 and therefore does not interupt the stereo. My only way I have found round this is to quickly switch the stereo off then on an connection is established. Can anyone cast any light on this?

    Re: Problems with Bluetooth Handsfree Connection

    Have you checked in Bluetooth connected device options you have set the car connection to being a trusted device ? I know we had a lot of trouble getting 7100 BBs to work with BMWs but since we switched to 8100 never had a problem

    Sorry I cant offer anymore help

    Question Re: Problems with Bluetooth Handsfree Connection

    Hi:
    I have had a 2007 Ford Mondeo with factory fitted bluetooth for three weeks and a BB 8707 for a few days. The voice control works very well but the memory is full with only about 10 numbers.

    I have a lot of contacts in my BB and some appeared in the Sony Audio system when I first connected but I have not been able to see any since?

    The last dialled numbers does not work at all.

    When connection is lost (tends to be when I haven't actively used the phone) I have to switch the audio system off and back on to force a connection.

    There is little reference to phone use in the audio system manual.

    I am thinking; can I increase the size of the voice activation memory, why can I no longer see the contacts? do I need additional software? Otherwise the idea of wireless handsfree in the car is great. Have had a BB BES for years and just thrown the old wired earpiece in the bin! The car dealer will no doubt have no answers!
