Bluetooth in New Model Vehicles

Aug 17, 2007
The cars that are now coming equipped with Bluetooth allow you to have a Bluetooth connection between your wireless phone and your car (through the phone and car's Bluetooth connection).

If by any chance, you have a compatible phone (and are on a compatible wireless network - that is, compatible with the car), you can use the car's console to dial your phone, access your address book, make and receive calls, etc. You won't even need a Bluetooth headset in order to use the car's features, but you do, however, need a compatible phone. So, keep that in mind.

Here is an example from Audi:

Your Audi vehicle may be equipped with a phone preparation utilizing a Bluetooth interface to enable hands-free functionality (compatible mobile phones sold separately). You will need a Bluetooth enabled mobile phone in order to utilize this function. Not all Bluetooth enabled mobile phone models are compatible with Audi's phone preparation. Audi recommends the use of the Audi phone cradle (sold separately) with your mobile phone while operating this vehicle.

Here is some information on Mercedes Benz:

"Plug a sleek new system-compatible phone into your Mercedes-Benz for instant integration with the Hands-Free Communication System or use the available Bluetooth interface to enjoy the benefits of hands-free calling while keeping your phone in your pocket, your purse, or wherever it's convenient.

With the system engaged, you can keep both hands on the wheel while communicating, for easier, safer, more convenient driving.

With your phone docked in the Multi-Handset Interface cradle:

The system will access and display your phonebook/address book. Your phone's battery will charge automatically once plugged in. All calls are clearly delivered through your audio system, which leaves you in control of the volume. The audio system automatically mutes the radio or even pauses the CD during any calls that you receive will driving.

You can even control calls via your multifunction steering wheel or with the optional voice control system. To make hands-free communication even easier, initialize your approved phone with the Bluetooth interface; the system will automatically recognize your phone every time you enter the vehicle.

With Bluetooth, you are able to send text messages received via Bluetooth and you can copy any text from messages and or notes.

The good news is that it doesn't matter how you received the text message; as long as it is on your phone as an SMS message (text message), you can forward it to someone else. Yes, you can copy the text within a text message, provided you have a device that allows you to copy text (most phones these days allow you to do this). Once in the body of the text message, choose the Options, which should have an option to Copy. When you are in the Note, choose Options and then choose Paste.

Whenever you choose the Copy option, the text will go onto the Clipboard (just like with Windows) and this will allow you to Paste the text somewhere else.
