Sonata Bluetooth Problems

Has anyone had issues using the bluetooth on the 2011 Limited? Whenever I try setting it up or pairing it says "System not ready please wait a moment" and nothing ever happens?

BTW, love the car!

    It would probably help if you would tell us what type of phone you have and which carrier you use.
  • I have an iPhone 3g, AT&T service.

    I have an iPhone 3GS, and within 3 minutes of getting in the car, I had the BT phone system paired and running. However, I have the nav model Infinity stereo.

    Have a Blackberry 8830 from Verizon. Had mine sycned up stopped at a traffic light on the way home from the dealer. No issue at all.

    I have a Droid and previously a Voyager on Verizon and a Samsung ACE on Sprint, no problem pairing with any of the three phones. Try going into setup through the head unit and using the buttons to pair the phone rather than your voice, maybe this will help. Or try it when you have already been driving for a while, like when you get to your destination.

    I'm having trouble also. The iphone pares then disconnects and even when it is connected it tells me there is no phone connected. Very frustration.

    Same thing happened to me as well right after I paired my wife's phone while my phone was already connected.

    When I figured out that my phone is not actually connected, I selected my phone on the menu and it displayed "Connecting..." or something like that. Then I immediately select connect menu on my phone. After that there is no problem at all.

    Pair mine -> Connected -> Pair my wife's -> Both disconnected, just paired -> Connect menu on Sonata and Connect menu on my phone -> resolved!

    Has anyone with bluetooth issues ever thought to make sure that their phone is compatible to the bluetooth system for the car? I don't know how it is with Hyundai, but with GM cars only certain phones are capatible to their bluetooth system. You pair the phone than after turning the vehicle off and back on, it loses it's pairing because the phone is not capatible. So it might be a good idea to check and be 100% sure that the phone your're using is capatible. Just me .02
  • As an update, I was unable to sync any phone to the 2011 Sonata, iphone or otherwise. I had the dealership take a look, turns out I have a faulty radio system that needs to be replaced. Seems like a waste considering thats the only thing wrong with the system, but oh well. They needed to order the radio and will be installing this week.
  • I've had my GLS for 2 1/2 weeks, and I was able to pair it to my iPhone 3G initially. In the last few days, though, the BT hadn't been connecting to it, so I tried re-pairing it. The phone recognizes the attempt to pair, but when I go to enter the passcode, it times out after a second or two. My Plantronics headset works fine, so I know that BT functionality still works with the phone. I guess I'll call the dealer, unless anyone has any other brilliant ideas.

    I have a Samsung U550 cell phone that does not seem to be compatible with the Sonata. it seems to pair with the car's bluetooth system, but does not recognize any of the contacts in my phone. ---> I can't call anybody by their name, only by their number. Anyone have suggestions on how to sync it better?

    Thank you...
  • i have a GLS Hyundai 2011 Sonata and I can pair it with a Palm pre easily. i know the pairing works because i can stream music and make calls. However, for making calls, i have to typically wait a while (~10 mins) for the "phonebook downloading... " message to go away. i can take calls in the interim, but i cannot make any calls even by number until the phonebook download is done.

    is anyone else seeing this? i do have gmail synced to my contacts, so the number is fairly large (>200+), but the issue is that it takes a random amount of time to sync. sometimes it is less than 5 minutes, others it can be 15 mins or more for the same address book!

    love the car otherwise!
  • update: after starting the car (but before shifting out of P), I pushed all contacts from my Pre to my car. The transfer took only ~10 seconds (total process took like a minute including the time to log in to my phone, select contacts and push operation). A few seconds later I could call by name.

    So I'm pretty sure it's a protocol issue: the Sonata expects the phone to push the address book on every sync up and the Pre isn't doing so. So the Sonata waits till it times out and then uses the contacts it has already downloaded. Would be nice if there was a way to "abort or cancel" the sync up in the Sonata or automatically initiate "contacts push on pair" in the Pre.

    Any one know how to do either or both of these?

    thanks,
    hypo
  • Anyone have this problem? A few weeks ago, my 2011 SE's bluetooth lost all the pairings, and when I went to re-pair my phones, the SETUP began speaking French!!

    Sounds like your car surrendered.
  • I am having the same problems. I just bought my 2011 sonata yesterday. Love the car but the phonebook updates every time I get in. I looked through my phones Bluetooth settings and checked the car manual - nothing, Any luck yet on your end?
  • Yes. The manual actually does show the language correction. It cycles through English, Spanish and Canadian French. I still don't know why I lost the phones, but I'm convinced it was something I did wrong.

    When I place a call using the bluetooth, I can barely hear the voice of the person through the speaker when they answer. However, when I call that same person using my cell phone, they come through loud and clear through the same speaker. This situation occurs for everyone I call using the bluetooth system only.

    I have checked the Blueconnect pairing link and my phone is included on their list. I use a Pantech C520 cell phone.

    Is anyone else having this problem? If so, how did you resolve?
  • Just purchase a 2011 Sonata and I have a Samsung Cell Phone. The phone pairs, I can make calls and receive calls. My problem is that there always is an incoming call that can never be answered and rings constantly. Display says Incoming call and keeps ringing until I disconnect bluetooth from Sonata. Anyone else having the same problem or a solution?
