Infiniti G35 Bluetooth Questions

Comments

  • I have an '06 G35X and have a blackberry for work and a Razr2 for personal. I can pair both but only one works at a time. If I get a call on the blackberry and the Razr is set as #1, the blackberry does not work via bluetooth. Anyone have the same problem or know of a fix?

    One possible fix: Cancel your Razr2 contract and run all calls through your BB.

    It is possible to pair multiple phones, so user1 with keyfob1 can pair up, and then when user2 with keyfob2 gets in and drives, their phonecan also pair up.

    I do not think that it is possible to pair up to phones at the same time though. :(
  • :) Thanks. I really can't use the work for personal and the BB does not have great sound. I do thank you guys for answering.
  • I am using a motorola MotoKrazer on our new '08 g35X we just picked up 3 weeks ago. We also just bought the phone and it is listed on the Infiniti bluetooth site as an approved phone for the 08 G35. It usually works flawlessly, but every once in a while the bluetooth will not connect when entering and starting the car. When this happens, the phone just keeps trying to connect every 10 seconds or so and then beeps. (the phone, not the car beeps) This continues until we shut the car off and restart. I wondered if anyone else has this problem and a possible fix. The problem seems intermitent and just happens once in a while.

    I personally have not seen that happen... sorry. :(
  • The reason your palm 700p stopped working was because you applied the recent Palm update on your phone. Unfortunately I have a new HTC Touch Phone from Sprint that does not work at all with the g35 07, that being said I do not have my Palm available to tell you exactly what to do.

    Somewhere under preferences (it is not in the bluetooth section), there is something referring to automatically picking up handsfree - you want to check this option and things will suddenly start working. Basically they made an enhancement to bluetooth and one of them was to ensure that if you connected to a bluetooth device it would stay connected unless manually ending the connection.

    Here is another way to get it to work as well. Dial out on the phone, then push the Phone button in the Infiniti, it will switch over to your car speaker and you can dial outbound.

  • I just made a deal on 2008 G35x without Premium package. Two things I would like to add is Bluetooth connection and XM radio. Can I discuss with dealership to install it before I pick up the car or it is better to do it with a third party?
  • scottm123scottm123 Posts: 1,501
    Bluetooth is included in the Premium package and XM can be easily added as an individual option at the dealership.
    Bluetooth cannot be added individually, but if you go out and drop a few hundred on an aftermarket GPS unit, most now include Bluetooth for hands-free mobile calling.
  • Just ordered a Palm Centro but wasn't sure if it's compatable with the bluetooth in my car. Anyone have any insight on this?

    I'm assuming I'm SOL since the device is fairly new :(
  • I checked the site and they said it's "in testing". Does this mean I would have to update my bluetooth software once it's approved?
  • shov8shov8 Posts: 87
    My Treo 650 works great, although I haven't tried copying the phonebook etc, but it syncs and receives/makes calls no problem. Hopefully the Centro will be compatible.

  • I haven't purchased a G35 yet but have a question. My phone has voice recognition which works well with my bluetooth headset for calling programmed numbers by name. I just push the button and get a voice prompt from my phone. Can the voice recognition in my phone be used in a G35 just like a headset or must you use the G35 voice response system to dial numbers? Basically, can the G35 behave as an oversized bluetooth headset?
  • scottm123scottm123 Posts: 1,501
    You can save voice tags in the G.
    Basically, you import your phone's address book into the G, and then record voicetags for each number.
    With a simple voice command, you can then have the car dial any of these numbers with one quick click of a steering wheel button, and a simple voice commnd.

    Yes, the car is like one big bluetooth headset.... with wheels :D
  • silica1silica1 Posts: 23
    Thanks for your response, but I'm trying to determine if you can skip the G35 voicetags and just 'talk' straight to the phone through the G35 microphone/speakers. My Samsung i730 has a full Outlook synced list of contacts. The phone also has its own voice response which works well. I'm also not planning to get the nav package so the address book download feature would be missing (from what I understand). I would be happy with the voice response in my phone, and I don't need to record any voice tags with it.

    Can I just push a button in the G35 and 'talk' to my phone without using the G35 voice tags? I can currently do it with a simple bluetooth headset.
  • You would have to first make the call via the phone and then push the phone buttong to transfer it to the bluetooth of the car. I have a 2007, and as far as I know, what you are trying to do via the speakerphone in the car is not possible.
  • silica1silica1 Posts: 23
    Thanks for the response. It seems that the voice commands in the G35 are the only means to place a call short of picking up the phone. It's not a major issue since I have a short list of people to call. I would need to program the few numbers that I regularly use. It would just be nice if I realized that I needed to call for takeout or something that I wouldn't normally have programmed into the car. Since I sync the phone daily with Outlook, it has the latest numbers for everything that I need(hundreds of entries).
  • You can access the downloaded phonebook (where you can store hundreds of entries), but only when the car is not in motion. So, as long as you're fast at the stop light... ;)

    If you've got a WM5 phone you can download JETware (free to try, $ to buy) and download your entire phonebook at once into the download section. Without that, depending on your specific phone, you may not be able to get the entire phonebook in there.

    Then you just copy your most frequent ones from the downloaded phonebook to the voicetag directory and viola done.
  • How did you upload you blackberry address book to your vehicles bluetooth?
    I have a 2008 MB 320CDI and it is not discussed in the owners manual.
    Thanks.
  • Even though the Motorola Q(M is listed as fully compatible with the 2008 G35, I am having an issue. The phone pairs just fine, but when first starting the car, it comes up showing the phone is connected as expected, but then when selecting Phone it shows a "call in progress" with the timer running from car start time. Hitting the Hang Up button does nothing right away and the system then goes into a suspended mode for about 15 seconds before then become fine. I have rebooted, re-paired and changed most options onthe phone a BT set-up on the car to no avail.

    I have seem this symptom before on other boards but when I called Infinti's BT help line, they seemed mystified by the problem. Other than this initial connection issue each time the car is started, the phone works fine for calls, receiving calls and voice-activated dialing, etc. Just is a shame to have to start car, select Phone, hit Hang Up and then Back and wait 10-15 seconds for the system to activate.
  • Exact same issue here. Glad to know I'm not alone. The frustrating thing for me is not knowing who should be addressing the issue, Infiniti or Motorola?
  • kobayashikobayashi Posts: 50
    After another recent call to the Infiniti BT help desk, I finally got someone to admit that the issues I described is indeed a confirmed problem with the phone. He said that they have reported it to Infiniti and are awaiting a resolution. They took my phone and said they would contact me when they have a fix. Not holding my breath. They should update web site which says the phone is compatible until it is fixed. I suspect Motorola will say it is the auto makers issue and truth is, the BT does work with other devices just fine. I have wondered also if this is a WM6 issue which may also plague other phones running this newer mobile OS. It is obviously an initiation issue as all the functions after this initial connection problem each time the phone is recognized.

    What I do now is turn the car on, see the "connected phone" message and then hit the hang up button on the steering wheel several times, then hit the back key above it on the wheel. A shame because everything else is nicely executed with the car and this ritual every time starting the car followed by 10-15 seconds of deadness before the radio/etc. comes back should be fixed.

    Call the BT desk and press them...I will probably call every once in a while to keep them honest. Please post back here with any info.

    I have a 2008 G35 and a Blackberry 8830. The phone paired immediately and was working perfectly for the first 2 weeks of ownership. Somehow the phone has disconnected with the car and I cannot get it re-paired. Basically, when I try to pair the phone, it goes through the entire connection process, but my phone shows the folllowing message after the connection: "Waiting for MY-CAR". Then nothing happens. Any ideas how to correct this?
  • adamr001adamr001 Posts: 95
    I'd start by removing it from the paired phones list in the car and trying to reestablish the pairing. I believe you can find the paired phone list in the "settings -> phone" menu when the car is running but not moving.
  • I have a Q9C (Sprint) and the same issue as yours...everytime when I start the car the Phone is connected to the car... For 10 sec or so even the radio is muted..and I hit the hangup multiple times to disconnect the phone...I have no clue what it is..but once I disconnect the phone then everything is normal like nothing happened... have no idea... :confuse:
  • kobayashikobayashi Posts: 50
    The Motorola Q9M was removed from the Infiniti BT web site for the symptoms I reported earlier. Infiniti offered to pay for my phone. It now sounds like the Q9C must also suffer from the same problem based on your symptoms. I would contact the Infiniti BT helpdesk and complain - then ask for customer relations. The Q9C is still on the Infiniti compatible web site as of today.

    Based on your experience, I would say Motorola has BT problems as part of their WM6 based phones, but they will probably not make a change due unless this issue is widespread. As much as I hate to do the work around (phone, hang up, back), I still do it and will probably look into a Blackberry Curve when it comes to Verizon next month.

    Let us know how it goes.

    I'm considering buying a used 2007 G35 sedan and I definitely want bluetooth. I've found some advertised that say they have navigation but not bluetooth. However, my understanding is that this car could not be ordered with navigation and not also have bluetooth.
    extensive web surfing has not given me a definite answer on this, would greatly appreciate if anyone could answer. I need to know because I've found a good deal on one with Nav, and I want to be sure it has bluetooth before I bid on it.

    thanks for any help.
  • alex180alex180 Posts: 3
    yes that is correct, if there is nav there is bluetooth.
  • gooddeal2gooddeal2 Posts: 749
    Bluetooth is part of the Premium package. I think you have to have premium package in order to have NAV but you can ask them if it has the Bose. If it has the Bose, it has the premium package.

    Hi, i have a 2006 g35 coupe, i am having problems with my bluetooth, it dont happen all the time, but sometimes, if i start the car or turn on bluetooth, the radio will lock up and say telephone, there is no way for it to release unless i shut the car off, or turn off the blue tooth on the phone, also some times it will say telephone but the call is still going through the handset. Infiniti has replaced the radio and the bluetooth parts, still no luck, its an intermittent problem so it dont do it for infiniti when they have the car, they are blaming the phone, i called tmobile and they sent me another Dash, same problems, now infiniti is telling me the phone isn't compatible, i think thats crap to be honest with you, anyone else have this problem or no of a fix?

    thanks
