Default Bluetooth AddressBook Transfer

Please Login to Remove!

Much to my surprise, I can now transfer my addressbook to my car using bluetooth OBEX with the 8800. Hope this helps someone who might be on the fence about the 8800 being worth the upgrade. The navigation/bluetooth system I have in my car is the same as all Lexus/Toyotas so I would think that it should work to any Lexus/Toyota car.

Has anyone gotten it to work with an 8700? I've tried a couple of times in my car, but never gotten it to work right. Is there a trick to it?

i was never able to get it to work with the 8700c and had all but given up, but the 8800 did it without any problems or tinkering. it still has some issues like entries in my phonebook which are companies show up with no name. but that is more of how the lexus nav is interpretting the addressbook from what I can tell.
