Bluetooth setup

Before you can use your telephone with your vehicle it must be bonded to the vehicle telephone system.

Handling of phones

A phone can be connected to the vehicle system by using either a cradle connection or a Bluetooth connection.

On vehicles with a mobile phone cradle, up to five Bluetooth phones can be bonded to the vehicle system.

On vehicles without a mobile phone cradle, up to six Bluetooth phones can be bonded to the vehicle system.

Note: If there is an ongoing call when the phone in use is selected as the new active phone, the call is transferred to the vehicle audio system.

Note: Even if connected to the car system, your phone can still be used in the usual way.

Requirements for Bluetooth connection

The following are required before a Bluetooth phone connection can be made.

1. The Bluetooth feature must be activated on the phone and on the audio unit. For additional information, refer to your phone user guide 2. The private mode must not be activated on the Bluetooth phone.

3. Search for audio device.

4. Select Ford Audio.

5. The Bluetooth PIN number 0000 must be entered on the phone keypad.

Note: A phone call will be disconnected if the audio/navigation system is switched off. If the ignition key is turned to the off position the phone call will remain in progress.

Compatibility of phones

CAUTION:
As no common agreement exists, mobile phone manufacturers are able to implement a variety of profiles in their Bluetooth devices. Because of this, an incompatibility can occur between the phone and hands-free system, which in some cases may significantly degrade the system performance. To avoid this situation, only recommended phones should be used. Please contact your dealer for more details regarding the current compatibility list.

Phones with Symbian operating system

Note: Certain phones require a special file to be installed to enable full phonebook access via Bluetooth. This is referred to as a SIS file and will be available via the Ford website. Please consult your dealer for full details.
