I'm in a 2010 Volvo XC60 this time with quick how to on managing, pairing and using your Bluetooth phone with a standard Bluetooth hands free system in this car. Let's get started. Pairing is always the first thing you want to do. Just press phone here and then it'll say if you have no phones connected press enter which we do. Now add phone is the first thing so press enter again. It's the lower left button. Now you've gotta go to your Bluetooth menu on your phone, this will vary by phone. In this case you want to go to your setup Bluetooth area and tell the phone to listen, not search. That's a little unusual. So the car is looking for the phone as opposed to the phone having to go look for the car. Pres enter when you've got that going and now the car begins to seek out your phone. Ok finally, my Blackberry comes up, now hit enter on the dash as soon as you see your phone show up and it gives you the pass key number 1, 2, 3, 4 in this case is our default. You enter that on your phone when you're prompted and wait for this all to get coordinated and that will give you a successful connection message and you'll know because it'll say there on the display. Now it shows your phone by model and type, that's the name that it gave it right there. You can change that of course but most importantly you can hit a menu item here which is the upper right and now you've got menu choices contextually relevant to your phone. For example if I want to see the last missed, received or dialed calls those are all right there. If I want to transfer my phonebook go down to that, hit enter and now copy from mobile phone. This may take awhile if you have a lot of contacts, I do. Now to make a phone call it's one of the easiest systems out there, just start dialing on the T9 keypad and hit enter because that's the same as dial or exit which is the same as hang up, you can see that right there on those 2 buttons; very simple system. No voice command in this guy so there's no way to tell it to dial. Finally getting your phone out of the system also pretty straight forward, there's your phone on the display, menu, down to Bluetooth, enter, remove phone, enter, there's the only one I have paired right now, enter, enter to confirm and that's it you're cleared out, your history and your phone book go with it. So those are your basic steps on pairing, using and removing a Bluetooth phone from the hands free system in this 2010 Volvo XC60 and similar Volvo cars and trucks [Music].
