These days, the technology in vehicles is incredible. It goes way beyond safety driver assistance features and backup cameras. Now, you can actually pair your phone with your vehicle to ensure that you can always stay connected to the information – and the people – you need. But to do that, you’re going to have to learn how to connect to the Bluetooth in your new car. Wondering how to do it? Take a look at these directions, which will guide you along the way.
Determine if Your Phone Is Compatible
Keep in mind that not every phone is going to be compatible with the Bluetooth in your vehicle. Before you do anything else, you’ll want to determine its compatibility. Chances are, if you have a newer phone, it will work just fine. Phones that are older or more basic than smartphones may not be able to connect.

How to Connect to Bluetooth
First, you’re going to press the Menu button on the faceplate and then click “Setup.” Next, go to your device and ensure that you’ve turned Bluetooth on.
Going back to your vehicle, select “Bluetooth,” and tell it to pair with a new device. Select the correct name of the device. It will probably say something like Your Name’s Phone. Check the display on your smartphone, and if the PIN matches what you see on your car screen, click “pair.” The screen on your car will then show that the devices are connecting.
Next, your screen will ask if you want to enable notifications. If you do, press yes. If you have an Android, you may have to go into your phone’s settings to do this instead.
And after that, you’re good to go! A confirmation message should appear that will let you know if you have successfully paired your phone and your car via Bluetooth. See? It’s not as hard as you thought, right?
