A Bluetooth-enabled cell phone must be paired to the Bluetooth system and then connected to the vehicle before it can be used. See the cell phone manufacturer's user guide for Bluetooth functions before pairing the cell phone.

Pairing Information

  • Up to 10 devices can be paired to the Bluetooth system.
  • The pairing process is disabled when the vehicle is moving.
  • Pairing only needs to be completed once, unless the pairing information on the cell phone changes or the cell phone is deleted from the system.

  • If multiple paired cell phones are within range of the system, the system connects to the paired cell phone in the order that they were last used in the system. To link to a different paired phone, see “Connecting to a Different Phone” later in this section.
