I did the above using netter66's advice. The phone is paired and trusted. I'm linking an 08 RX400h. The phone hangs with a waiting for XXX (name of car unit) and never reconnects. The only way to un-hang is to remove the battery. I've tried this with an 8800 also. Same. These are new phones.
as for the 8700 of nerath, the Lexus Lets Talk site says the 8700 can't send data. I found this to be true. There is no menu pick for transfer Address Data.
I'm to the point where I will upload only critical data from my V# Razr one at a time. This does work but seems tedious.
Another site seems to say that the US Government had RIM remove the ability to upload data. Any truth?
Im My Bimmer this is all automatic and it even uploads my Iphone with out pushing from the phone. It's done in the background with any paired phone.
Why in a world of standards can't these guys figure this out?
