Default Automobile Bluetooth delay??

Please Login to Remove!

I've been recently using my 8700 to connect via bluetooth to my 2006 Land Cruiser and it works well except for one thing that I've noticed. I'm not sure what it's like with other auto's but with the LC you can't dial any numbers while the vehicle is moving. Meaning I can only dial via the LC's graphic interface when the car is still. According to the manual it's a safety thing. So to make calls while moving I have to use the BB 8700 to dial. I dial and the call kicks in through the vehicle. So the problem I've noticed is there is a delay when calling this way. It takes a couple of rings in fact before the car picks up the call and sometimes the people are like "hello hello" by the time the LC registers the call. Calls coming in aren't a problem. Does any have this problem with their vehicle when using bluetooth?

I wouldnt necessarily consider that an AUTO issue. My 8700 takes a min when a call comes in to kick to the headset. So it may not be your auto

thanks for the reply corey. I just wish they would allow Land Cruiser graphic keypad to be usable while driving. I really don't see any greater safety risk in dialing with the car versus the using the 8700. In fact I think it's more difficult to use the tiny keypad of the 8700 compared to the massive display built into the navigation system =\
