phone wont connect when getting in car

Well, it will, but it takes about 15 seconds before it connects.

i'm talking about when you are on the phone before in the car, get in the car and turn it on, then have to wait a whilke before the connection happens. is there a way to fix this?

Unfortunately the technology is not to a point where the vehicle will sync with the phone as soon as the key is in the ingnition

I hate when making a phone call, sometimes having to switch between the phone and handsfree. It's random at times..We will just have to get used to it I guess.

I beg to differ. My Audi A6 connects with a second or two after turning on the car. This has been my biggest beef with the wife's 2011 MDX. Also, even if you start the call from within the car, if it was initiated from the phone, it automatically defaults to the phone for audio. You then have to wait the 15 seconds before it transfers over to the car. Again, my audi defaults to the car's audio regardless of where the call originated from (phone or car).

Maybe its just Japanese vehicles then because my Lexus GS does the same

OK, I'm assuming those who's phones can't connect, have already previously been paired to the car...

I have luck turning off my phone's Bluetooth connection, then immediately turning it back on, that is, once the car is running.

Within a couple of seconds of doing this, the signal strength indicator should be displayed on the radio and you will be good to go.

My phone is the second phone paired, my wife's is the primary, she has no problem gaining connectivity within seconds of the car running (without turning off and back on the Bluetooth connection).

I had the same problem, my wife's X takes what feels like an eternity to connect with the car and calls. My Audi connects automatically, but I hope it will be all corrected when I get the Handsfree fixed on my wife's X
