  • Sharing of the cell phone’s address book or contact list with the vehicle.

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

  • Review the controls and operation of the infotainment system.
  • Pair cell phone(s) to the vehicle. The system may not work with all cell phones. See “Pairing” in this section.
