Your car’s multi-information display (if so equipped) is the key to using the HandsFreeLink® (HFL) system to answer calls. Here’s how to read the display:

  1. The top of the screen shows a number of icons, including:
  • Roaming

  • Bluetooth connectivity

  • Signal strength on the phone

  • Battery level

You’ll also see the “incoming call” notification at the top of the information screen.

  1. The caller’s name will appear under the “incoming call” notification.


If you get a call while using the HFL system, it will interrupt any other audio that might be playing.
