Is the phone compatible with the Bolero? Download this from the Skoda site to find out.
http://new.skoda-auto.com/SiteCollectionDocuments/download/devices/en/hf-compatibility.pdf



There's also a Bluetooth guide to pairing the phone which explains the pairing procedure which should really be provided with all cars fitted with bluetooth



http://www.skoda-auto.com/GBR/Documents/Brochures/Accessories/Skoda%20Yeti%20Bluetooth%20guide.pdf



Hoepfully these will help pair the phone.



It took me a couple of attempts to pair my phone but now every time I turn on the ignition the car finds the phone .

I have also encountered a pairing difficulty but mine is to do with the fact it is a company phone and the bluetooth listen mode is disabled (could be part of your problem with nokia bandh?) most phones pair easily but you have to set them to listen mode in the bluetooth menu because the Yeti transmits its code, which you see on your phone, per freedie's comment.When you do pair the phones option menu usually gives you a "always ask to connect" option that needs to be unticked, then the phone will connect seamlessly (fingers crossed).

That said does anyone have any idea how I can get around my pairing problem, I could not find a listen mode for the Yeti, is there one hidden anywhere?

I had another shot at my BB9000 connection and found this time I saw the option to put the code into the phone (1234), it then connected after a confirmation on the Maxidot that it was the right phone and the address book was displayed on request. So looks like I was wrong on about one way connection limitation.

What did I do differently? Not sure may have tired connecting in a different order, but I think think that patience and keeping an eye on both machines will probably get any bluetooth phone connected. Also, when I get in car after 20 seconds of the ignition being on there is a bong and a connection made. Unless you cancel on the Maxidot which does give you the option. Very pleased, hope others overcome any phone connection difficulty with a little perseverance.

The How to of - Bluetooth mobile phone pairing with the Yeti.

Today I tried and successfully paired a recently purchased Chinese android smartphone to my Yeti.

Instructional design can sometimes leave the best of us feeling like we are not as smart as we once thought we were. The explanation provided in the phone's manual is a Chinese translation into English, which unfortunately is not as clear and sequencial as desired. Similarly, the Yeti's manual left me a little confused, therefore I present the following:

If you are sitting comfortably in your Yeti and you have read these instructions three times, we shall begin:
1. For the phone to make a connection with the Yeti's bluetooth, the car's ignition needs to be turned on. Then you must next focus your attention on the phone; forgetting the Yeti's display for the time being.
2. With the mobile phone turned on, go to the phone's bluetooth, which also needs to be turn on, if it is not already.
3. Your phone might now start searching for a device. The word "searching" may be showing on your phones screen along with a rotating circle. (In this case the device your phone is searching for is your Yeti's bluetooth, because it should be the closest bluetooth device to your phone).
4. If your phone does not automatically start searching for a bluetooth device, you will need to sight "search for device" on the phones screen and press or tap it.
5. Once the Yeti's bluetooth is identified by the phone, a headphone set and the words SKODA_BT should be seen on the phone's screen. (That is what my phone presented to me, yours might be different).
6. A press or tap of SKODA_BT on your phone screen should now connect your phone to the Yeti's bluetooth.
7. A "boyng" sound made by your Yeti should be heard as the connection is made.
8. You may now look at the Yeti's Maxidot display to see your phone as connected.

I do hope this is helpful to you.

Happy phoning,
Banjobach.

Hi there,

When I search for the radio on my iPhone, I get message Bluetooth Pairing Request "VW PHONE" would like to pair with your iPhone. Confirm that the code "056685" is shown on your VW Radio. However I can't find this information anywhere on the radio. So searching for the radio via the iPhone Bluetooth search does not work. Any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance

Hi Roy welcome to the forum. Can you give us some more details, what car do you have, what radio head is fitted and what phone are you using?

Just be thankful you're not in the position I've put myself in with my Aygo!It came with a factory fitted handsfree kit for the phone, but no bluetooth media player - just a normal radio/CD player. I happened to have a Sony CD/Radio player with phone and media bluetooth capability. So I removed the original unit and use this instead, the swap went well and everything works - except I forgot how bad the quality of the microphone is on the Sony. So now I use the Toyota factory fitted handsfree phone system for calls, and the stereo for bluetooth media.
I'm happy with it, but the 2 systems aren't... every time I start the car they fight over who has control of the phone!

The joys of motoring today one time it was spot the red box on the side of the road and when you stopped and the phone worked or you had enough coins it was a bonus, I will say I love the personal message I get when I stop as the screen reminds you to take your phone. My kids were like that fighting over who got control over the phone, before growing up and having there own phones.

Are you trying to tell me my Aygo should have its own phone!?
