Bluetooth Phone Compatibility

From Civinfo Wiki


Bluetooth is a very non-standard standard, Honda's compatibility list can be found here

If you are having problems pairing your device it might be worth looking here.

Please list your experiences with your handset, whether it works or not.

Contents

Nokia

3110 Classic

Mostly OK but transfer call drops the bluetooth. To transfer, reconnect via phone, paired devices

6680

Drops the bluetooth connection at the end of a call and needs to be re-connected. A work round can be found here

6131

Keeps dropping the connection.

6280

Works fine if you do not add "audio enhancement". A little red car icon should appear when you are connected.

6288

Works OK but does sometimes drop the Bluetooth connection after a call

6233

Works fine.

6300

Works OK but does sometimes drop the Bluetooth connection after a call.

Mine has been 100% for a number of years. Does not upload the phonebook, an option available with MY09.

N73/N95/N95 8Gb/E72

Kown issues;

Nokia E72

Works but has several 'features' (read: issues)

  • 'Opens channel' (all audio drops) during pairing;
  • 'Opens channel' (all audio drops) during any bluetooth activity (even non-audio related, e.g. searching for external GPS dongle);
  • 'Opens channel' (all audio drops) whilst taking a picture with the camera function;
  • No option to disable 'audio over carkit' using navigation software (Nokia Ovi Maps), so for every direction the audio channel is opened and music is dropped.


You need to get the phone searching for bluetooth devices at the same time as the HFT during pairing.

Tip: You can dial directly from the phone, just dial the number or speed dial then the right menu button (on the phone) will display 'Bluetooth', press it and the call tranfers to the HFT. Just wait 5 seconds whilst the phone reverts to 'Handset' and then back to 'Bluetooth'.

6230i

Fully compatible.

Suggest setting the Honda HFT to start searching first then use the phones Menu > Settings > Connectivity > Bluetooth to complete the bluetooth connection. Once setup the HFT will connect automatically when the phone is within range.

Old firmware may not transfer the sound over properly. Firmware 3.89 is known to work.

N79

No known issues.

N80

Works fine except occasionally when you get into the car and insert the key the phone will auto pair, then start the engine and the because car systems reset the phone will unpair and not re-pair. You then have to manually pair it. Most of the time this doesn't happen though.

Sony Ericsson

Xperia X1i

Works fine for incoming calls. I do need to turn bluetooth ON on my phone before unlocking the car, else it does not always pair automatically, especially if the car is already in motion.

Haven't managed to make it work for outgoing calls ==> the sound comes from neither the handset nor the car speakers (a black-hole somewhere!).

K750

You need to update to the latest firmware (can be done using the USB lead and software on the SE site), then this phone works fine. On older firmware, it will repeatedly drop the BT connection.

K610i

Usual SE problems where the sound does not transfer properly. One user reports success with firmware R1ED001.

W950i

Works perfectly. Same bluetooth firmware as the M600 which is on the "approved" handset list.

W800i

Will not transfer the sound from the phone to the HFT. Flashing the phone with K750 software may fix this, but you will lose some mp3 functions.

W810i

Will not transfer the sound from the phone to the HFT. Firmware post R4EA031 will fix this.

Works perfectly. Same bluetooth firmware as the M600 which is on the "approved" handset list.

p900

Works fine once connected. In some cases you need to turn on BlueTooth on phone, turn off and turn on again to get it associated.

p990i

Seems to work fine and has connected without fail, phone is rubbish though although apparently new firmware imporves this.

P1i

Works fine for incoming calls. I do need to turn bluetooth ON on my phone before unlocking the car, else it does not always pair automatically, especially if the car is already in motion.

Haven't managed to make it work for outgoing calls ==> the sound comes from neither the handset nor the car speakers.

K800i

Need to update the firmware then it will work fine. Does not work with original firmware. Download the software update from sony ericsson website and upgrade your phone.

K850i

Works fine with Sat Nav handsfree. Does not work with A Pillar Honda aftermarket kit.


Samsung

U600

Recently received my Samsung U600. Successfully paired with HHF but doesn't seem fully compatible. Everytime you get in the car you have to accept the pairing on the U600. Receiving calls works but seems to go to the phone first and then transfer. Making calls sort of works to some numbers but not everytime. (Editors note: this may be fixed by authorising the device - if anyone succeeds please update this wiki entry).

D500

This works perfectly, did not have to authorise device. Connects upon turning key, disconnects on turning off car.

D900 (and similar)

These work perfectly, but having paired the phone you need to "authorise" the connection on the phone itself to make it connect automatically. D900i also works perfect once authorised!

E900

As above, but in the case of this phone, when you are using the HFT and you hear the call waiting beeps, the call automatically transfers itself back to the handset after the last beep of the call which is waiting. To transfer the call back to the HFT, you need to select, "Transfer to Headset" on the phone itself. Saying the word, "Transfer" on the HFT will not work!

F210

As with E900. Additionally outgoing calls need to be dialled via phone, then transferred via "transfer to headset" once call has connected. Pairs perfectly, but as with other samsung phones, authorisation is needed.

G600

Works fine.

SGH-E250

Is not working correctly :(. Sometimes it's find a car and sometimes not.


Motorola

V3 Razr

Works perfectly fine with my Civic --initial pairing was fast and trouble free, and as long as the phone's Bluetooth is switched on the car always recognises the phone quickly and reliably. Be aware that it does appear to drain the battery at an astonishing rate however --much faster than a Bluetooth headset does. Spending on average 2 hours a day in my car, I now get three days battery life out of my phone when I used to get more than a week.

SLVR

I have just collected my 2.2 EX. I initially had trouble pairing the phone, but it is in fact very simple. You just need to have the phone actively searching, NOT waiting to be discovered.

Have had no trouble from day 1 with connecting to my 1.8 EX. Have 2 connected and it picks up the user every time.

V6 Maxx

No successes reported. Would not connect to a CRV.

V500

Works fine with no pairing issues, may be draining the battery much quicker than usual - investigating.


Orange / HTC / XDA

HTC HD2 (Leo)

Works fine.

XDA Orbit 2

Works fine normally.

Until the car is locked the phone may still be in headset mode. Occasionally have to switch bluetooth off if I want to use phone straight after leaving the car.

i have just bought an xda orbit 2 and i cannot get the phone to pair with the car and the car cannot see the phone

XDA Stellar

Works fine.

SPV 3100

Works fine.

S620

Works fine.

Meteor

Works fine.

XDA Mini S

Works great mostly. Connectivity is fine although the phone sometimes dropped its bluetooth.

Rare problems with phone still being in handsfree mode after car switched off.

HTC TyTN II (on orange at least)

Seems to work fine

HTC P3470

Works fine, apart from that outgoing calls made from the handset do not divert sound to the bluetooth. A "redial" command from the bluetooth does make it work correctly.

HTC S730

Works fine.

Blackberry

Blackberry Pearl

Since getting the handset it has constantly dropped then immediately reconnected the connection. After 3 unsuccessful firmware revisions I can confirm that v4.2.194 (Platform 2.3.0.77) of the handheld software released in June 2007 actually works perfectly with no issues. This firmware is not available from UK operators yet, you can get the firmware from here [1]

Blackberry Pearl 8120

Works fine out of the box

Blackberry 8700

No problem found pairing the device and making / receiving calls. You may find Bluetooth disabled if company supplied and that their security restrictions will stop you using it this way. A workaround is to divert all calls to a bluetooth PAYG handset you keep in the car when driving.

Blackberry Curve 8250

Paired fine and made a test call. So far all seems ok.

LG

800, Prada and others

Not compatible! Drops connection after a bit.


Apple

iPhone

Works fine.


Palm

Treo 650

Works fine with Palm carkit update - (Make sure you select 'carkit' rather than 'headset' when pairing in Palm bluetooth manager). See here for more info [2]

Treo 680

Works fine

Centro

Works fine
