| | 9630 Tour pairs with BMW but problems
I too just got the 9630 Tour and love the phone. I have siwtched from the 8330 which worked perfectly with the BMW... I am having all of the same problems mentioned above in this thread. After the phone pairs on the BMW, the car thinks the phone is on a call and none of the radio/sat/iPod features work. I end up doing a fake call and hanging up a couple of seconds after I dial so a real call doesn't go through. The BMW thinks the call is over and the entertainment system is then functional. However, in many cases, the display on the BMW still the call as if its still going on.
There are a couple of other features that are problematic - like when a call comes in, the display in the BMW shows the number of the last person called instead of the actual userid....
I'm hoping this might be a difference in the BB or BT software versions....
I went through the 8330 technical details on the phone trying to compare to the 9630 and noticed only minor differences which I tried to sync. The software version on the 8330 were 4.3xxx and on the Tour/9630 they were running 4.7xxx....
I will report back if any of the settings improve anything.... any one with any thoughts or experiences would help.... the phone pairs easily.... it's the internal communications of the BT systems that don't seem to be working properly
