In order to use your phone through the audio system via HandsFreeLink, you first have to pair the phone. Here’s how to pair your phone to the system via Bluetooth, if no phones are currently paired: 1. Press the Phone button. 2. When the display asks if you would like to add a phone, rotate the selector knob to Yes, then press the selector knob. The system will then search for a Bluetooth-enabled phone. 3. Your phone will then appear on a list. Use the selector knob to select your phone. 4. The system will then give you a four-digit pairing code, which you should input into your mobile device when prompted. 5. The system will alert you when the phone is successfully paired.
