My iphone wont connect to the bluetooth in my valkwagen golf car?


As I have learned the hard way the iphone's bluetooth is only to pair with wireless bluetooth headset and car stereo. You cannot connect to any other kind of devices. Also you must have Iphone Os 3.0 or higher to stream music to your car stereo. If it still does not work then the belkin bluetooth audio receiver should solve your problen

Halfway working bluetooth


You cannot at present use iphone's Bluetooth to transfer files/link up phones/computers etc as Apple has intentionaly crippled the Bluetooth so you can only connect to some handsfree kits and headsets.. this is to force use of itunes only for file/music/apps transfer and of course to prevent copy of said files between your iphone and other phones/devices to force each person to buy apps and music (prevent theft by file sharing)
