Motorola Droid :: Transfer Droid Phonebook To Bluetooth Enabled Car Hands Free Kit
Nov 11, 2009
Found a few threads about people having problems transferring their phonebook to their hands free kit in their automobile. Had the same problem myself - was able to connect and pair with the car kit. I was able to make and receive calls, but didn't have the phonebook.
Then yesterday, while setting in the car, I was going to re-pair the connection between the phone and car I noticed that in the Notification Bar that the car was asking permission to receive the phonebook from the phone. Opened the Notification and granted permission and clicked on always grant access (or something similar). Phonebook was then transfered. Haven't had a problem with it since...
I havent been able to try this yet and i was just wondering if anyone else has. If you have the phone connected to a handsfree bluetooth system in a car and are also using the phone to play music via an aux input through the headphone jack will they both work? I am just wondering if the bluetooth connectivity will override the fact that you have something plugged into the headphone jack. I will be able to try this in a couple weeks when i get my car back, but wasjust curious if anyone else already has tried it.
I am looking for a bluetooth hands free car kit that can send stereo signal to car radio utilizing a wire to the aux input on the radio. I have a Motorola T-505 that does this with an FM signal, however I cannot get a clean FM frequency.
So I bought and Apple handsfree set (stereo headphones and mic) for the Droid. I can't seem to hang up on a call by clicking the mic. I can accept calls by clicking on the mic, but clicking on the mic while in a call seems to just mute the phone.That's a useful feature, but does anyone know how to hang up on a call using the Apple handsfree set on the Droid?
Just got an N1 AT&T unlocked. Paired it with a Nissan 350Z bluetooth hand free. It pairs and the light on the car says it's connected. The N1 BT icon says is connected as well. When a call comes in, the car and the phone will both ring. When I pick up the call, either on the phone or the car, the system will switch to "phone" but the call always goes to the phone. I have only been able to actually use the car's handsfree once. Is anyone else having issues with their BT hands free in their cars. The other phones I had worked perfectly.
I remember one of the sticking points last year for me, was the inherent problem in Android of Bluetooth support for Bluetooth Voice Dialling for true "hands free". Not to mention Bluetooth file transfer. I understand Android may still have a problem with Bluetooth voice dialing, or is this just problems with, I think it is, "Droid"?
I´m facing problem with phone book synchronization of my Xperia X10 2.1 with Parrot CK3100 bluetooth hands free. The exact issue is that Parrot import few of contacts only and rest have not displayed at all. After re-connect again it works fine for while.
I have been having an annoying problem whereby my phone takes somewhere between 2 and 10 or so minutes to connect to my car's hands free kit. The handsfree is a factory fit bluetooth unit in an Audi. I've had the car over 2 years and with my previous phones (SE W810i, K750i and C905) the connection was always made within 15 seconds of turning the ignition on. With the Desire it takes so long sometimes that I can have reached my destination before it connects!
I have a Blaupunkt Melbourn car stereo with the Blaupunkt USB/Bluetooth Interface installed in my car and it used to work just fine with my Sprint Mogul and Touch Pro, but I can't seem to make it work with my Hero. When I pair the two, the radio only recognizes the Hero as an audio source and not as a phone. In other words, I assume I can stream music from the phone to the radio but I can't answer the phone with it. I should add that the connection icon shows up as audio headphones instead of a phone handset in the Bluetooth Devices screen.And this is just the opposite of what I need. I could care less whether I can stream music, but I need to be able to use the car radio as a hands-free device and as I wrote in the last paragraph, the radio worked perfectly in that capacity with my last two phones.So does anyone have any idea whether this is a phone problem or a stereo problem? Does anyone have any idea if there's a work-around? For that matter, does anyone have any helpful information at all?
I purchased a new Sprint HTC Hero a couple of days ago.I have been pleased except for one small problem. While I can get the Hero to connect to my Chrysler Uconnect handsfree system over bluetooth, it does not seem to transfer the phone book over to the device. I cannot find an automatic or manual setting to send the phone book over.I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this issue?
When my car bluetooth downloads the phonebook from my captivate, it downloads some contacts, but doesn't download the ones from my exchange server. They show up fine in the contacts app, but the car doesn't receive them. I thought it might be an issue with the way they were put into the contacts, so I undid the built in android exchange account, deleted the contacts, then installed touchdown and populated it that way. Still no joy. I thought that originally it was downloading them correctly (using the built in exchange sync) but either stopped working correctly, or never was and I just now noticed it.
I have the Eris, but I can't make hands free calls with my BlueTooth ear piece? What am I missing? Does this cell works with hands free? I thought ALL phones are required to have this to work? Can someone please provide some input on this. which device would work with this cell.
Why does the phone say PAIRED BUT NOT CONNECTED? How do i connect it to the other phone. To be more specific the other phone is the ERIS. So is it even possible to send songs, pics, etc to other phones from the DROID? And can the ERIS even accept bluetooth file transfers?
Way back when I had a LG dare and I used BitPim to transfer my phone book and contacts over and it was simple (even with bluetooth) without using a Google account. So what I am asking is this possible to use BitPim v.1.07?
I bought the Droid and they were clueless about how to transfer contacts. I tried connecting them via bluetooth and they pair but don't connect. After searching it seems Android only uses bluetooth for headsets. Does anybody know how to make this work via bluetooth or have any other solution for me?
I am walking to my car, talking on the phone. When I turn the car on, I want to transfer from the phone to the bluetooth in the car/nav. unit.If I'm in my car, I can call/receive phone calls fine, but I can't figure out how to transfer a call to my car bluetooth, when I get in and I'm ready to drive off. Instead, I have to tell the person, I'll call them right back, as I have to make the call from the bluetooth setup.
Im hopeing that Im just missing somthing here but I cant figure out how to send or recieve contact information via BlueTooth. While in contacts the share option only offers Barscan and Gmail? Wheres Bluetooth
Can you mount and transfer files via bluetooth? if you can, anyone got any quick tips on how to do it? i can't experiment just yet - just ordered a new laptop with BT (my current computer doesn't have it) but it won't be here for a week or so. just trying to do some early research.
I just go the Droid and it sync's great with my car's blue tooth (2009 BMW) but I cannot seem to get the phone book transferred. It says transferring but nothing ever happens, just seems to show the revolving circle on my BT showing it is working but that is all. Battery seems to drain pretty fast in the car now too like this. Is there something I am doing wrong here causing the phone book to not transfer?
Found new app on the news this morning. So much fun! Totally hands free. Just search Google for AdelaVoice. Works good with chompSMS. Be sure to read the command page. Will even send voice text, but I haven't tried that yet. Still in beta but will be the bomb when it is finished!
I just published a Hands-Free texting app called Shout. Just say a phrase like "Text Doug With I am On My Way Home" and Shout will search your contacts for matches, confirm "Sending 'I am on my way home' to 'Doug Hansknecht', correct?". Simply tap the Big Green Yes button and you're done.
I found this dock that is almost what I'm looking for, but I don't like FM transmitters. I prefer just to use a cable for the sound since it's clearer and I don't have to keep fiddling with stations when I get feedback. All the other docks that I've found are window mounted suction cup deals. Does anyone know of a dock that plugs into the cigarette lighter, but doesn't have the FM transmitter?
