How to Hook a Bluetooth Audio Phone Up to a Car
Many states and countries have enacted laws that prohibit people from using their cell phones while they drive, under penalty of a ticket. However, these states prohibit only use of a cell phone headset. Hence, people have turned to setting up car systems with Bluetooth technology, either as a separate speakerphone or as part of a car computer system.
Things You'll Need
- Car with Bluetooth-capable radio or computer
Turn on the car, then activate the radio or computer with Bluetooth in the car.
Turn on Bluetooth for your phone and have it search for devices. Refer to your phone's owner manual for specific instructions on how to do this.
Go to the Bluetooth option of your car's menu and select the option to search for devices. The car system should appear on the phone. Click on it.
Enter the four-digit code provided by either the phone or the car. In some cases, you will have to enter "0000" or create your own four-digit code.
Select the option to create a "Trusted Connection" to ensure you don't have to enter the code again.
Tips & Warnings
- Never attempt to hook up a Bluetooth device while driving.
