[ Music ] ^M00:00:07 >> Here's the 2009 Mazda MX-5 Miata, you call it as everyone else does. I'm going to give you a quick how to on how to pair your Bluetooth phone and use the hands-free phone system on this car and it also applies to many other current production Mazdas. Now, first of all the screen here is small and limited. There's no touch screen or LCD, so we are going to do all of our set-up and driving of the system via this voice command button over here. Set-up. >> Select one of the following. Pairing options. >> Pairing options. >> Do you want to pair up? >> Pair a phone. >> Please say a four-digit pairing code. >> One, two, three, four. >> Pairing code, one, two, three, four, is this correct? >> Yes. >> Start pairing procedure on phone. >> Okay, so now I'm going to search from my phone and look for the head unit. That's the direction you want to go here in pairing. Now, we are going to see the device show up. We see one found already. And of course for our pass code, we just set to one, two, three, four. Okay, there it is. It says, Mazda as the correct enunciator. Let's select that. And then the head unit has asked the phone to get the pass code. We'll put that in, one, two, three, four and then enter. >> Please say the name of the phone after the beep. >> BlackBerry. >> Adding... >> BlackBerry. >> Pairing complete. >> Notice a couple of things. You are able to rush the process. As soon as you know what you want to tell it, don't wait for all the menu prompt being given you verbally. You'll die old waiting for that. Just press the button here and rush in to input mode. Now, to make a call is pretty simple, your phone of course can go wherever at this point. Dialing a number either your phonebook or right from scratch is like so. >> BlackBerry. >> Is connected. >> Dial 415-344-2000. >> Dialing. >> Now, you can also dial here via phonebook, but this unit doesn't do an advanced address book or call history transfer the way some Bluetooth rigs do. You've got to set up the entries uniquely on this car and give each one a verbal tag and then you dial that way. It's a little tedious. Now, when it comes to deleting a paired phone from the system, I found the easiest way was just to go to my BlackBerry and kill the connection and the device right there. After a while I get real tired of poking through unfamiliar rarely used menus with one of these strictly voice command and limited text display head units. So, that's the basic way to get your phone up and running and to make calls for the Bluetooth hands-free system on an '09 MX-5 Miata and similar Mazda products. ^M00:02:48 [ Music ]
