Operation on the onboard monitor

The following functions can be operated on the onboard monitor:

  • Accepting/rejecting calls
  • Dialing a phone number
  • Dialing a phone number from the phone book
  • Dialing a stored phone number, e.g. from the list of accepted calls
  • Terminating a call

When the ignition and radio standby mode is switched off, e.g. after taking the remote control out of the ignition switch, you can continue an ongoing call via the hands-free system for a maximum of 25 minutes.

VOICE QUALITY
If the person you are talking to is unable to hear you clearly, this may be due to excessive background noise. The mobile phone preparation can compensate for these noises to a certain degree.

To optimize voice quality, we recommend the following:

  • Reduce background noise, e.g. by closing the windows, lowering the air volume of the air conditioning system, or opening the four front air vents and pointing them downward.
  • Reduced the volume of the hands-free system.

REQUIREMENTS

  • The pairing data of the mobile phone are stored in the vehicle and the mobile phone is ready to operate.
  • The engine is running or the ignition is switched on.
  • The mobile phone is recognized by the vehicle.

Dialing a phone number from the phone book or from a list of stored phone numbers
Numbers you dialed, incoming calls, and phone book entries are stored in lists if the mobile phone is connected to the vehicle via Bluetooth. If the caller is entered in the phone book, the name of the entry is displayed instead of the phone number. You can select the desired party from the list and establish the connection.

There are five different lists of phone numbers:

  • D “A-Z”
    The phone book entries on the SIM card and mobile phone consist of a name and phone number and are arranged in alphabetical order.
  • “Top 8”
    The eight phone numbers that are most frequently dialed from the “A-Z” phone book are automatically stored in the Top8 list.
  • “Redial”
    The eight phone numbers dialed most recently are automatically stored. The last number dialed is at the top of the list.
  • “Missed calls”
    The phone numbers of the last eight calls that were not accepted are stored. For this function to work, it must be possible to transmit the phone number of the caller. A missed call is indicated by a mobile phone symbol in the bottom line of the Control Display.
  • “Received calls”
    The phone numbers of the last eight calls to be accepted are stored. For this function to work, it must be possible to transmit the phone number of the caller.

You can modify a phone number stored in the phone book, e.g. to dial an extension:

  1. Select”Phone”.
  2. Select “A -Z”.
  3. Select the desired entry.
  4. Select “Add digits”.

From mobile phones to hands-free system*
