Making Calls Through Bluetooth + Usb Audio Device

9 posts in this topic

Hi All,

I am not sure if i posted a while back when i first had the car so appologies if i have, I have two problems

My Model is Fiesta 1.6 Zetec S

  • When my phone is connected to the Car via Bluetooth there is no numbers listed under the phonebook

I have been messing around with this but not had much luck, I know that the problem is basically the Cars bluetooth only recognises numbers stored directly to my phone and not the sim card, so my question is does anyone know how you can get the cars blue tooth to read the Sim numbers instead?

  • USB thumb drive connected to USB slot for Audio

When i am listening to songs via my USB thumb drive it randomly cuts out and then displays "USB audio device not recognised" or something close to that, I thought this maybe down to the length of the song titles but doesnt appear to be so, has anyone had any luck fixing this issue?

Thanks in advanced for replies.

I don't believe you can, copy your sim contacts to the phone and have them on phone + sim. Should work fine that way.

Try installing the update from here and see how you get on. If no joy try another USB stick.

Only problem with copying the contacts to my phone is that it will shows twice in my phone then, might just copy the most used numbers.

I've got that. Fits nice and tight, doesn't get in the way of putting stuff in the little tray below it etc, no compatibility problems at all.

Edit : Oh lols, same as Nath's. Tempted to pick up a bigger one though... Wonder if they do 64 gig versions... >_>

Edit the second : nope, just 32 gig ones, which I just ordered. the more music in my car the better!
