Buick Encore: Phone / Bluetooth (Overview for 7 Inch Screen)

Buick Encore 2020-2022 Owner's Manual / Infotainment System / Phone / Bluetooth (Overview for 7 Inch Screen)

The Bluetooth-capable system can interact with many mobile devices, allowing:

  • Placement and receipt of calls in a hands-free mode.
  • Sharing of the device’s address book or contact list with the vehicle.

To minimize driver distraction, before driving, and with the vehicle parked:

  • Become familiar with the features of the mobile device. Organize the phone book and contact lists clearly and delete duplicate or rarely used entries. If possible, program speed dial or other shortcuts.
  • Review the controls and operation of the infotainment system.
  • Pair mobile device(s) to the vehicle. The system may not work with all mobile devices. See “Pairing” later in this section.

Vehicles with a Bluetooth system can use a Bluetooth-capable mobile device with a Hands-Free Profile to make and receive phone calls. The infotainment system and voice recognition are used to control the system. The system can be used while the ignition is on or in ACC/ACCESSORY. The range of the Bluetooth system can be up to 9.1 m (30 ft). Not all mobile devices support all functions and not all mobile devices work with the Bluetooth system. See my.buick.com for more information about compatible mobile devices.


Use the controls on the center stack and the steering wheel to operate the Bluetooth system.
