iPhone 4 and making calls with the HFT

Hi folks, well I've searched, and I can't find anything to help me with my query, so here goes...

When making calls that I haven't entered into the HFT Phone book yet, is there a specific procedure I need to follow?

At the moment, I use the phone to initiate the call, select Honda HFT from the phone audio sources, which it stays on for a second, then as soon as the call connects, the source changes back to the phone, the options disappear, I have to then locate them again, and hit Honda HFT again...

Whilst trying to do this last night, I hit the 'Show Keypad' option on the phone, and couldn't get off it to re-select Honda HFT so the person I was calling just hung up I got there in the end, but surely there's got to be an easier way of doing it which doesn't involve always having to store the phone in the HFT system first?

Thank you in advance for any help

:
mines like this or with my other samsung phone . if the phone has not gone into standby it will still use the phones internal speaker ,. so i just press the off button on the iphone to force it into standby and then it will fully transfer over to to the honda hft when next call comes in /next outgoing call

If I REALLY need to make a call in the car ( usually I call work on my way in) I make it's the last number dialled and use the "redial" command. Other than that the options are to speak the number to dial. Or you could start adding the numbers you use regularly to the cars Phonebook. It's time consuming and people WILL stare at you doing it.

Same here.
Dial it on the phone, hang up before it rings then tell your car to 'redial'

Was a thread a while back on this.

Yep the HFT in the car is pretty useless, surely someone can mod the NAV dvd, or a way of loading a cd into the hft system

Lovely job. Thanks folks! I shall do the "Redial" method I think!!

I was stuck in a traffic jam this evening, and started adding in my most dialled numbers, luckily it was dark and no-one saw me talking to the car

Thanks again all, at least it saves me trying to find another way round it
