Ask Us! Blackberry Use in Car via BlueTooth

Comments

Ken asked us,

I bought a new car that has a bluetooth kit and wanted to connect my Blackberry to it but I can’t get it to work. Well it does sync for a bit but loses it’s connection

We had this question posted to us awhile back and our answer was to wait until RIM releases an update to their OS. Users that have a BlueTooth kit and their car and want to connect their BlueTooth-enabled Blackberry will need to update to OS 4.0.2 to get things to work properly. The majority of BlueTooth kits are now supported but you may the odd one that still may cause you some trouble.

The official supported BlueTooth kits are as follow:

Acura – HandsFreeLink TM car kit from Johnson Controls Inc. (JCI)
Audi – Integrated car kit used in Audi vehicles with Bluetooth technology
BMW – Dealer-installed optional car kit from Visteon Corporation
Cadillac – Bluetooth car kit from Denso Corporation
Chrysler – UConnect car kit from Johnson Controls Inc. (JCI)
Dodge – UConnect car kit from Johnson Controls Inc. (JCI)
Ford – MobileEase car kit from Peiker Acoustics
Honda – HandsFreeLink TM car kit from Johnson Concrols Inc. (JCI)
Jeep – UConnect car kit from Johnson Controls Inc. (JCI)
Landrover – Integrated car kit used in Landrover vehicles with Bluetooth technology
Lexus – Bluetooth car kit from Denso Corporation
Lincoln – MobileEase car kit from Peiker Acoustics

    A word of caution: most wireless providers don’t offer support for any bluetooth connectivity. Try before you buy; you’ll save yourself disappointment.
