    I will give it a whirl after work.  Thank you!   Also, wondeirng if any of you experienced issues with pairing a 2nd phone.  My BF is trying to pair his iphone5 on my car and it is recognizing his phone and then we get to the last step ... but he never gets the pop up screen on his phone to enter the 4 digit code.  It just keeps spinning then the pairing process times out.


    He has the same phone as me running the same operating system.  strange.


    Any suggestions?

    Squire0624.......I have a 2013 Honda CRV and an Apple Iphone5.  Once I upgraded all I had to do was to set my Iphone in my vehicle and it worked like it was supposed to.  I did not have to set to headset, I left my iphone on DEFAULT.


    Make sure you plug your Iphone5 in to a power source, it takes a few minutes to upgrade.

    Thanks!  I am looking forward to it working for good:)

    I agree. I also have my incoming calls set to default.  I think the headset setting was being used as a workaround by some people before the software update.

    It worked when I upgraded to os 6.1.2, without having to change any settings!  Thank you all!

    Had the same issue. This website has the answer beautifully illustrated, if you need it. -all-the-time/


    Path to repair issue:




    Incoming Calls

    Change from "Speaker" (which is what is causing the problem) to "Default"


    In the future, when you want to use "Speaker" on a particular call, just use the button on the call to make it go to speaker phone.


    I know. I thought "Accessibility" was a section for those with disabilities. I have no clue how my phone got reset that way.


    Guess you have to choose whether you want it to work through Bluetooth or want it to mostly answer as a speaker phone. You can't have it both ways, I guess.

    I drive a 2012 Honda CR-V w Navi. My phone is an iPhone 5 w iOS 7.0. Earlier it was on iOS 6.1.x. I never had any problems with receiving or making phone calls. But my Handsfree link is set to "Auto Answer" all incoming calls. Never used the button on the steering wheel to answer or hang up. I do have problems routing the phone audio to car audio system when using maps (Apple or Google maps, same behavior). I can't hear any voice guidance from the phone or from the car audio system, unless I disable the blue tooth connection between phone and HandsFree Link. Once the pairing is broken, I can hear voice guidance from phone, but then, my phone is not connected for phone calls either.

    Yesterday I had similar problem with iPhone 5 iOS 7 and 2010 Toyota Prius nab system. When I was connected through Bluetooth the nag voice did not work. I also have a 2012 honda CRV but so far I have not had any issues with iOS 7 and any connectivity issues

  • headtrip79 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    You need to go to the Settings option on the phone -  then General - then Accessibility - Incoming call - Change from Default to Speaker or Headset. Then all is good

    Guess you have probably found out that you can't pair TWO iPhones through the bluetooth system in a single car at the same time. The car can't tell who is driving and needs the bluetooth enabled.


    Eventually, the manufacturers will realize that some cars have two or more drivers, and will create a way to allow us to tell the car who is driving and needs the Bluetooth enabled for their own device.


    I would like to be able to just hold down a button and tell it not to use the default - mine - and to use the other driver's iPhone bluetooth.

    I have a portable handsfree unit (Blueant Supertooth 3) which is several years old now but remembers the pairings for up to eight handsets. It can't pair to two at the same time but it is easy to switch using the bluetooth menu on the phone. Connecting a handset automatically disconnects the previous phone.

  • Andrew Stivelman Level 1 Level 1 (15 points)

    I have a similar issue.  I have several phones - but for the purpose of this forum I have an iPhone 5S (Rogers).  In my 2007 Ford Mustang, I have an OEM bluetooth module installed in the car (it looks like a little 'fob panel' that connects via a small cable to the head unit).  I can pair the phone 100% perfectly, no issue whatsoever.  However when I receive a call, the ringer comes through on my car's speakers but no matter how hard I press on the "answer" key on the fob, I cannot answer the call on the BT.  I also cannot end a call.  Could this be related to a) the fact that in 2007 the iPhone 5 didn't exist, and therefore the units are incompatible? or b) I need to set the General > Accessibility > Incoming Calls to something other than "Default"?  I haven't tried that yet but I thought I'd ask here.  Again, the phone pairs perfectly, first time.


    I have tried with a BlackBerry and a Samsung Galaxy S4, all newer phones but still I think they should work, unless it's due to the new Bluetooth 4.0 spec?


    Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

    I have a Ford Escape, 2011 with Sync.  When I receive a call in transit, the call goes to the iPhone 5 and I must tap the Sync option to make it come through the stereo.  This is dangerous.  If the phone is in a purse or a pocket it is impossible.


    Thanks for the suggestions. I will attempt using the phone without a password. However, I need the phone to be on password mode when I am at work, so would have to change it twice a day.

    iPhone 6+ with the same problem. Have to manually set audio routing to "CAR MULTIMEDIA" (in this case a 2012 Toyota Prius) on the first incoming call after the phone has been powered on. Reported problem to Apple, went to local Genius Bar and got a new phone......same problem. New iOS options in "Accessability" are "Automatic, Bluetooth, and Speaker". Problem goes away when this is set to Bluetooth.....kinda makes me wonder what Automatic is for.


    Interestingly enough, my son's iPhone 6 (not the +) works with my car with his setting at: "Automatic".
