Bluetooth Phone Connection Problems


I own a Renault Megane Coupe (59 plate) and I am having problems with the bluetooth connection for my phone.

When I originally got the car last year, I paired my phone up no problem and was making and receiving calls no problem at all (paired it with a Sony Xperia 10, software 1.6)

Recently, new software was brought out for the phone (2.1) and since then, I'm having problems.

The device is paired and it connects as soon as I get into the car with bluetooth turned on, however, if I receieve a call, it no longer comes through the in car system. I am also unable to make calls despite being able to find people in my phone's address book.

Is it simply a case of the new software on the phone being incompatible (which i accept might be the obvious answer) or is there something im doing wrong when pairing?

I'd be interested to hear from anyone if they have managed to connect and use a Sony X10 with new software

Thanks for any replies in advance

Re: Bluetooth Phone Connection Problems


I just got my megane and have exactly the same problem with my x10 running 2.1. However, it now works. The way I have got it to work is to switch the phones bluetooth on after I have started the car. So far, this has worked every time. Hope this helps.

Re: Bluetooth Phone Connection Problems

It's a bit of a long shot, but make sure you're not answering the call using the touch screen on the phone. If I do this on mine (HTC Desire, Android 2.2)
then the handsfree doesn't respond and I just get audio through the handset. If I use the car's stereo remote to pick up the call, then the handsfree works perfectly.

Thumbs up Re: Bluetooth Phone Connection Problems


New member so sorry if i have done this reply wrong.

I currently work for a Renault dealership, and over the past year i have changed my Nokia phone (which always connected to the phone system and also had no problems streaming music) to an Orange San Francisco or Android phone....this is where my problems began.

I could connect me phone via bluetooth and it would show my signal strength etc, but any calls in the audio would not kick in, ie t still rang on my phone, i couldnt sync my phonebook either.

As i work for Renault and thinking it was the car, i have tried various models with no success...until today.

This is an issue with Android phones not the stereo units, so pleas go easy on your Service guys lol.....there are 100's of forums about this problem covering all cars , the only common thing is Android.

I have resolved the problem (with my phone anyway) and hopefully this will do the same for you guys.

Go to Android Market, download "Bluetooth File Transfer" ..its a free app.

I did this opened the programme, closed it again when i realised how complex it looks....but lo and behold...success.

I have tried this in my car a New Megane Dynamique Tom Tom, a New Clio and a used Current model Scenic and it works.

I can know stream music via bluetooth and then make a call, the music cuts out and when i have finished the call it comes back on..BINGO.

The app is a file transfer app for appears that it is sending a bit more info to the car bluetooth (including finally my phonebook).

Give it a go...its free, takes seconds to download and it may just work....please let me know and i will try and get this pushed on to Renault Technical to other advise to service departments.

Good luck
