I've just transferred my phone contacts via bluetooth to the Honda HFT system.

This has worked fine apart from the fact that the car phonebook shows an entry for every contact type, so if someones number is stored on Google and they also have a facebook account I end up with 2 entries.

I don't seem to be able to stop the phone from sending certain contacts and there doesn't seem to be a way of deleting individual contacts from the imported phone book, and the Sat-nav manual doesn't even mention the phone import (it is part of the sat nav system).

It's not a disaster just annoying as I now have 83 entries instead of about 40.

Any ideas. :confused:

You can edit the voice activated phonebook stored in the telephone system but not the one transfered via bluetooth to the sat nav system.

All I can do is import or delete the whole phone book, it would be OK if you could control which items the phone sent.

I'm not sure if the sat nav phone book is a new feature for the 2009 cars but I can't find it in the manual.

If you can delete the whole phonebook, thats simple..

Delete the whole phone book
Go into facebook mainpage, settings, disable 'sync all contacts'
Go into settings -> Accounts, disable anything you don't want synced in there
Now sync with your car, and then re-enable them settings.


Does that not do it? Haven't got my Civic yet to try it :).

I've had a HTC Desire and now a HTC Sensation and as far as I can remember you have to go into the bluetooth settings on the phone and make it discoverable (even though you've already paired the phone with the car), the phone will stay discoverable for 2 minutes.

If this doesn't work let me know and I'll check how I did it.

Thanks KenP IT WORKED, I was assuming that once the phone was connected and the icon showing on the display the system should have known the phone was there, how stupid of me!!

Thanks again :p

I suppose it's a security thing, so that if you share a file with someone via bluetooth they can't then access all your contacts.
