Q: How do you read the HandsFreeLink® display?

How do you read the HandsFreeLink® display?

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.

Tip

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