I have spent some time trying to use the bluetooth feature of the iPOD nano 7th generation with my Nissan Murano 2010, my Playstation and my computer.

After entering the 1234 code the nano displays "Connected" for a few seconds and then not connected with the Playstation. In the Murano, it does not recognize the nano. With the computer after entering the code the "Connected" message is displayed for a few seconds and then "Not Connected".


I am able to bluetooth my Samsung Galaxy Note phone easily with the Nissan Murano and receive calls.


Is there a step am missing or the bluetooth feature is just a gimmick for us techno-audio-newbees to spend more money with Apple?


Look forward to your response soon.

    The Nano BT only supports the A2DP profile for audio - confirm your car supports that. It does not support HFP since it obviously isn't a phone.

    No manufacturer can do interop testing with all the devices out there. Even if they tested with the Murano, I doubt you'd be able to find that out. More to the point, they would only bother even testing with devices that have compatible profiles. Which comes back to the specs on the BT audio profiles supported by your carkit. If it only does HFP, you're out of luck. If it does A2DP as well, then there is probably some issue on the Nano side or possibly in the pairing/streaming side with this particular carkit.

    The list you are referring to would be immense and I know of no manufacturer that does this.


    You are making a mountain out of a molehill. All you had to do was check the manual for your car to see if it supports A2DP and you would have been done.


    I'm sure your Murano does support HFP, I don't know of any car Bluetooth that doesn't. And your Galaxy Note connects using HFP and I guess it is possible that Android can route stereo music through the monoural HFP protocol. But the Nano will only work through devices that have A2DP. So while you are wasting the time of the people at your Nissan dealership, I predict that the Nano will connect with all of their car stereos that have the A2DP Bluetooth protocol and won't with those that do not have it.

    Because the people responding to you are intelligent individuals.


    I don't own a Nissan Murano, and probably no one who has answered you does either, so I can't look in the MANUAL and see whether is does or not. I can tell you the 2008 BMW 528i does not. I can tell you the 2012 Acura MDX does. I can also tell you, because this is the way that Bluetooth works, that if the appropriate protocol is present on both devices they will see each other and pair.


    No one is avoiding the question except you. And you will be wasting the time of everyone at the dealership, they are there to sell cars not waste valuable time with someone too lazy to take good advice and read their manual.


    Go back to the service department and talk to the electronics guy. He will tell you that any Murano with a stereo with A2DP will work.

    If your manual does not indicate whether there is A2DP on your stereo then you don't have it. Searching through here I found that Nissan began adding A2DP with 2010 models.


    I never typed those initials to you, that is all on you.
