I have an HTC Wildfire and I'm having probs connecting it to the Fez.. when I search for devices the phone will not even find ford audio never mind pair with it, the phone is not on the compatibilty list but as we all know that means nothing :)
The phone would connect with no probs to the Focus ST I had before and this was older (56 plate)so you'd think it would connect to a newer system, but no!
any ideas anyone?
thanks

Maybe it just isnt compatible lol? :rolleyes:

Might work after you update either your car software and/or phone.

Do you have another phone/laptop/etc you can use to see if they can detect you car?
Have you double checked and made sure Bluetooth is activated on the car in the radio menu?
