>> We're in the 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart edition with a quick out two one handling the Bluetooth system in this car with your Bluetooth equipped cellular phone. The first thing we want to do of course is pare the phone to the system. This is done with a voice command, the buttons over here on the left.
>> Set up.
>> Select one of the following. Paring options. Confirmation prompts.
>> Paring options.
>> Please say a four digit paring code.
>> Paring code 1-2-3-4 is this correct?
>> Start paring procedure on phone. See phone's manual for instructions.
>> Ok now I'm starting a search from my phone. You don't get a lot of information on the display here so it's very aural in terms of how you handle this; and when it comes up it just says hands free system, not Mitsubishi or anything like that. I'll select that. Now I put in the code that I told the car I was going to use, 1-2-3-4.
>> Please say the name of the phone after the beep.
>> Adding Blackberry.
>> Assign a priority for this phone between 1 and 7.
>> Set your priority 1. Is this correct?
>> Paring complete.
>> Okay now to make calls you can push the button again and say either dial and give it some digits or call and call up a phone book entry. Let's start with the simple way first. Dial 4153442000.
>> Cancel. Call CNET.
>> Calling CNET at work.
>> Now there was a CNET entry in there not because it called up my phonebook; this system's too simple to do that. Because I made a verbally tagged entry and do it this way. Phonebook.
>> Select one of the following. New entry. Edit.
>> New entry.
>> Name please.
>> Adding CNET. Is this correct?
>> Home, work, mobile or...
>> Home. Is this correct?
>> Number please.
>> All right so as you can see the onscreen information confirming or giving you any idea what you can say is really sparse. You've got to listen to the voice system. I'm not crazy about that; it's kind of laggy in some cases, so many damn confirmations but that's the nature of voice systems that don't have a good confirmatory touch screen. The last thing is how to get rid of a phone.
>> Set up.
>> Select one of the following: Paring option.
>> Paring options.
>> Do you want to pare a phone, delete a phone?
>> Delete a phone.
>> Please say 1-4.
>> Removing Blackberry.
>> Okay so there are your major operations; paring, removing a phone and handling dialing through either the phonebook that you create or using digits here on this 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart.
