Sonata Bluetooth Problems

Comments

  • There is a separate volume setting in the Bluetooth setup, turn it up some and you'll be fine. I had this issue and this was the solution...
  • I have a Blackberry 9630 Tour on Verizon Wireless. Everything pairs beautifully until after I shut the car off and turn it back on again. Then my phone can't read the Bluetooth from the Sonata and a woman's voice from the Sonata repeats over and over again "Pairing failed, pairing failed, pairing failed."

    According to the Hyundai web site where they have a Bluetooth compatibility chart, this model of Tour is listed as "passed" but as a Sprint phone, not Verizon Wireless. You would think they are the same thing to pass the test?

    These problems are causing me nothing but headaches.
  • I had the same "pairing failed" issue with my BB 8900 (ATT). The dealer installed a new audio system unit and now my cell works perfectly.... :)
  • Purchased my 2011 Sonota last night. Love everything about it, except.... isn't there always something.... The voice recognition leaves something to be desired. Is there a way to "train" the recognition? Haven't found anything in "the book."
    Thanks for the help.
  • Contacted Hyundai, who passed me on the "Blue Connect".
    The answer... There's nothing to be done. It is not adjustable, nor trainable. Their answer? "Have you tried to change your contact's name to something the device will recognise?"
    Geeeeeeeee, thanks.

    Same issue. My Samsung Alias2 will also pair, but thinks there is always an incoming call that cannot be answered.

    I contacted Samsung, and they said it is not their problem and there are no plans to update the Alias2 firmware. Hyundai just says to refer to the Bluetooth phone compatibility list. It shows that the Alias1 is compatible, but makes no reference to the Alias2 (which does not seem to work.)

    Ultimately, I gave up and bought a TracFone Motorola W376g for $20 so I can use the Bluetooth in the car. Pairs up perfectly. Only feature that does not work is downloading the phone's phonebook to the system...I got around that by simply manually loading a phonebook myself into the Sonata.

    Unfortunately I have 14 months left on the contract the Samsung phone is on. Not eligible for a phone upgrade for another 8 months. Might just pay the $125 to terminate the contract, instead of spending the $1100 over the next 14 months to finish the contract. I can live without mobile web (which is glitchy on the Alias2) and sending text messages (I have one friend that sends texts regularly...I will just tell them I no longer have text ability.)

    One would think that any Bluetooth phone would be able to pair up, and send and receive calls with no issues. Looks like the Bluetooth "standard" really isn't much of a standard.
  • Hello.
    It seems that the "bluetooth" associated with the navagation system is designed by another company. IT IS trainable. Go figure.

    I'm have success by changing the names in my phone from first name, last name... to just last name. My wife was the oddest.... "pam" kept bringing up "Help". Got around that by renaming her, "wife".

    Not sure I understand, "manually loading a phonebook". What do you mean?

    When I say that I manually loaded a phonebook to the Sonata's "in vehicle" phonebook, I hit the voice command button and speak the entries into the phonebook. I will say "phonebook", "add entry", by voice, then speak the name and number.

    The Sonata lets you add contacts manually by voice, or by downloading contacts from the phone automatically. My model phone will not automatically transfer its entries to the Sonata's phonebook, so adding entries manually by voice is my only option.
  • And is it then "stored"? My phone seems to have to re-store every time I get in the car.
  • rysterryster Posts: 565
    Yes, the entries loaded by voice are stored within the Sonata.

    It sounds as though your phone autoloads its phonebook everytime it connects with the car. That is normal for phones that are compatible with respect to that feature.
  • Okay. I guess loading them "by voice", would mean having to update periodically.
    Thanks for the insight.
  • rysterryster Posts: 565
    The only time the entries would need to be updated is if someone's number changes.

    I loaded mine by voice 4 months ago and they are still there and work perfectly.
  • I need some help
    When I use the bluetooth, it'll dial and answer through my phone instead of the speakers
    how do I get it to answer through the speakers?

    You said you...hit the voice command button and speak the entries into the phonebook. I will say "phonebook", "add entry", by voice, then speak the name and number... Which is the voice command button? I have a 2011 Sonata Limited. I've tried saying "phonebook" when I hit the button on the steering wheel that activates the voice dialing (and other commands), but I don't get anywhere except a help selection. Am I missing something ? Do I have to say "phonebook add entry by voice" all at once ?
  • rysterryster Posts: 565
    The voice command button is the one that has the icon of a person speaking,

    I just press that, and say "phonebook". The system should then prompt you from that point for adding entries and how you want to do it (by voice or by phone).

    You can also say "help" after pressing the button, and the system can guide you to adding phonebook entries.
  • Can anybody give me a hint as to how I can get my LG429g phone to work with the Bluetooth that came with the car
  • How do I fix this. "System not ready please wait a moment," for all bluetooth functions. What did I do wrong?

    The Limited with Nav does not have the function to add entries. It only transfers the contacts from your phone. Other Sonata's have a different radio, and they have the ability to store contacts in the car's memory.
  • Did you get your issue resolved? I am experiencing the same issues. I had a blackberry curve with verizon, it was not on the list of compatible phones, so my dealer actually bought me a new blackberry storm2 which is on the list, and it still does not pair every time. HUGE HEADACHES for me too. The dealer did tell me yesterday that there have been over 1500 cases of this problem reported, and Hyundai has a technical team working on the issue.

    we have a sony ericsson W518a thru AT&T (a free phone with the 2 yr. plan) and must say it works excellent with the bluetooth. When we bought our 11 sonata in July the salesperson set it up for us.
