Default Bluetooth problem with Acura RL

Please Login to Remove!

I have an Acura RL. I successfully paired my 8700 with it. The connection establishes itself and then seconds later loses it and then reestablishes itself and then seconds later loses it on a continuing basis. Any one else having this problem with a Bluetooth connection?

My beloved 7100t works fine in the Acura RL. (I am becoming more enthralled with my trusty old 7100t by the minute. The 8700 has been mostly disappointing so far.)

My 8700 paired with my RL without any problems. The MID displays battery and signal information and the call quality is very good. It works like a champ. Do you have an '05 or '06? Mine is an '05. I cannot imagine that they made too many changes to the HandsFreeLink system on the two but you never know.

On the 8700, go to Options -> Bluetooth -> HandsFreeLink TM. Press the thumbwheel, select Device Properties and make sure Trusted is set to Yes. When the HandsFreeLink tries to connect you are prompted on the 8700 to accept or reject the connection attempt. There is a box to check if you want to always trust HandsFreeLink. If this was not selected the last time you connected, you just need to follow the instructions above to do essentially the same thing. This may be your issue.

You might try deleting the 8700 from the HandsFreeLink and also deleting the HandsFreeLink from the 8700 and try pairing again. You may have already tried this but I mention it because sometimes bluetooth devices can be unpredictable.

Thanks all. At least I know, thanks to you, it's not a problem with the 8700. I deleted all the devices on the HFL (I had previoulsy paired a 7100t) and cleared the found HFL device on the 8700 in case there were any conflicts. It has now stabilized which suggests that there could have been conflicts.

I do not think you will be able to download the phonebook from the 8700. That would require the 8700 to support the OBEX and/or OPP bluetooth profile(s), which it does not.

Well it's unstable again. Keeps establishing the Bluetooth connection with the RL and then instantly losing it again. Reestablishing and losing. Etc, etc. May be a defective unit.

Default Help!

Number 13 and Eddievedder:

I am completed baffled. You each got your 8700 to work with your Acura RL. It just won't work from me. I've tried everything. It pairs, holds for a while, then disconnects, then reconnects, then disconnects, and so on.

I have the latest software in the Acura.

There's no problem with the 8700. It works fine with a Bluetooth headset. Any idea what could be causing it to disconnect in the Acura?

I have a similiar issue on my TL. I'll have a connection, talking away, and then suddenly the speaker phone connection drops in the car. The car display says it is still conencted, but I need to pick up the BB. Then maybe a few minutes later, I suddenly will be able to hear back through the speaker phone in the car.

My BB is less than 2 weeks old, so I may consider swapping with Cingular.

My problem with the RL was a defective phone. Replacing the phone fixed it. No problems since that time - works perfectly.

mine works perfectly in my MDX. Might want to make sure it is a trusted pairing.
