• What is Bluetooth® ?
    Bluetooth® technology is simple, secure and everywhere. The Bluetooth® specification defines a uniform structure for a wide range of devices to connect and communicate with each other. When connected, Bluetooth® allows you to utilize your mobile device hands-free inside the vehicle. To get more information about Bluetooth® hands free technology, please visit www.bluetooth.org.

  • Are all phones compatible with the Bluetooth® System?
    If your mobile device is not listed on the Hyundai compatible list, it may work with limited functions. For the system to work to its full capability, it is recommended to use a Hyundai-tested mobile device. Check to see if your phone is compatible by clicking here.
  • How frequently will the compatible phone list be updated?
    We are continuously testing phones as new models are released. This list is updated every three months and once the mobile device meets Hyundai standards.
  • How do I pair my phone with Bluetooth®?
    A tutorial for pairing your phone can be found at Bluetooth® Pairing Tutorial (if supported). Start here.
  • How do I know when a Bluetooth® phone is connected to the car?
    Once your mobile device is connected to the vehicle, a Bluetooth® logo or icon will be displayed on your mobile device and on the vehicle (if supported).
  • How many phones can I pair? What is the difference between pairing and connecting?
    Only one mobile device can be actively connected at a time. However, a total of 5 different phones can be paired to the system. When a phone is paired, the system stores the phone information for readily available use. When connected, the phone is active and utilizes any supported Bluetooth® features.
  • Does the system download my contacts?
    Upon successfully pairing your mobile device, your vehicle will download all your contacts on the initial pairing. After the first synchronization, the user has the option to go into settings and download contacts when it is necessary to update newly added contacts (if supported).
  • What is Bluetooth® Audio?
    Bluetooth® Audio is a feature available on mobile devices with Bluetooth® capability that lets you listen to music wirelessly utilizing your vehicle's audio system. The phone must be paired to the vehicle's system first (if supported).
  • How do I know if my phone will work with Bluetooth® Audio?
    The phone must support Bluetooth® streaming audio in order to use this feature. Please check with your mobile provider or the user's manual of your mobile device to see if your phone has the Bluetooth® streaming audio functionality.
  • Can I transfer my mobile phonebook to the vehicle?
    Yes. You may choose to synchronize contacts from your phonebook. However, not all phones support wireless syncing of contacts via Bluetooth®. On certain models, check with your phone manufacturer if this feature is supported on your mobile device. Social media contacts such as Facebook, Twitter, and Gmail contacts may not be transferable.
  • How many contacts can my Bluetooth® System hold?
    The system has the capability to support up to 1,000 contacts from your mobile device (if supported) with the exception of Equus, which can store up to 5,000 contacts.
  • How do I adjust the ring volume on the Hyundai Bluetooth® System?
    Simply use the volume control buttons on the steering wheel or adjust the volume knob on the radio (if supported).
  • Can I switch from the Hyundai Bluetooth® System to my cell phone so my passengers cannot over hear my conversations?
    Yes. You will need to enter "private mode" and transfer the call from the Hyundai Bluetooth® System back to the phone. Located on your mobile device, you may select which audio source your phone uses. Simply select phone instead of car, and you will be able to transfer the call back to your mobile device. You may need to consult your mobile phone's operating manual for more information (if supported).
  • Can Hyundai's Bluetooth® System work in different languages?
    Yes. This may vary by Hyundai model equipped with a Hyundai Bluetooth® System. Bluetooth® System is available in English, Spanish or Canadian French languages (if supported).
  • What does it mean to "pair" my mobile phone to Hyundai's Bluetooth® System? What is the difference between pairing and connecting?
    "Pairing" is the process of creating a secure communication connection between your mobile device and Hyundai's Bluetooth® System. Hyundai's Bluetooth® System will store your unique information and only allow connection with an authorized device. Pairing essentially "sets up" or "registers" your device to the Hyundai's Bluetooth® System (if supported). Connecting is the process of connecting an already-paired mobile device with Hyundai's Bluetooth® System.
  • If I've paired more than one phone with my Hyundai Bluetooth® System, how does the system know which phone to use?
    When multiple phones are paired, the Hyundai Bluetooth® System will automatically select the default mobile device to connect to. The default device has "priority" over other mobile devices. If the Hyundai Bluetooth® System does not locate the "priority" device, it will attempt to connect to the next available device in the "paired" listing (if supported).
  • How can I change the "priority" device to a different phone?
    Press the SETUP button, then select Bluetooth and then select Auto Connection Priority. On the Auto Connection Priority screen, select the phone that you would like to connect automatically.

    When the engine is running, the selected Bluetooth device is automatically connected. If the connection to the selected device is unsuccessful, the previously-connected device is automatically connected. And if connection to the previously-connected device is also unsuccessful, the system will attempt to connect all paired devices sequentially. Please be advised that depending on auto connection priority, connection to a device may take time.
  • I've changed the "priority" device but it did not connect to my phone. What should I do?
    After changing the "priority" device, the ignition must be turned off and on for the Hyundai Bluetooth® System to connect to your phone. If the Hyundai Bluetooth® System still does not connect and it previously did, try deleting your phone from Hyundai Bluetooth® System and "pair" it again.
  • How do I delete a phone from the Hyundai Bluetooth® System?
    Press the SETUP button, then select Bluetooth, then select Bluetooth Connection. On the Bluetooth Connection screen, select Delete Devices and then choose the device that you would like to delete, then select Delete.

    Please note that by deleting a Bluetooth device, you will be deleting all of its call history as well as the contact information that was downloaded when the device was initially paired.
  • How do I answer/end a call using my Hyundai Bluetooth® System? How do I switch the call from hands-free to my mobile device?
    When there's an incoming call and a Bluetooth device is connected, a notification pop-up will display on the LCD screen. To answer the call, you can either select ACCEPT on the notification pop-up screen or press the button located on the steering wheel. To reject a call, select REJECT on the notification pop-up screen or press the button located on the steering wheel. To end the call, press the button or press END on the LCD display. If you want to switch the call from hands-free to your mobile device, press and hold the button for 1 to 2 seconds or select the USE PRIVATE button located at the bottom of your vehicle's LCD display.

    Please note that with some mobile phones, the caller's phone number may not be dispalyed and the REJECT feature may not be supported.
  • If I have call-waiting on my phone and another call comes in when I'm using my Hyundai Bluetooth® System, can I answer the second call without losing the original call?
    Yes. Simply push the TALK switch on the steering wheel and the first call will be placed on hold and the second call will be activated. Follow the same process to toggle back to the first call and put the second call on hold (if supported).
  • General tips for using Bluetooth®
    1. Speaking the correct string of commands as noted in your Bluetooth® guide (if supported).
    2. The microphone is typically located within the headboard. For best results, when speaking commands, sit upright, do not lean towards the navigation unit as this may place you further away from the microphone receiving range (if supported).
    3. When speaking voice commands, speak clearly at a normal pace (if supported).
    4. Cabin noise should be kept at minimal level if possible (ie., Windows and sunroof closed, driving the posted speed limit to minimize road noise). Wait for the beep prior to speaking a command (if supported).
    5. If you are not sure what to say, press the "HELP" button for a list of available commands (if supported).
