Kenwood KVT-512 with bluetooth setup troubles

I have an iPhone and when I turn on the bluetooth function then do the same on the deck it comes up blank. One instruction manual says to check the other on how to set it up so i'm left confused? I had it professionally installed and they never asked to see my phone or anything so I'm not sure if they missed a step or if it's something I can resolve on my own. Thanks

    Yep, me too. I'm connected, but no sound for my phone via bluetooth, and my ipod via ipod connector.

With my BMW I had to connect both the solid blue (pwr ant) wire and the blue with white stripe (p conn) to the solid blue wire from the factory harness.

It isn't obvious that either of these are needed as the KVT-512 has it's own power supply but the way most factory power amps are installed the power from the KVT-512 is not used and the car manufacturers power amp needs to be turned on.

If you are listening to the radio the pwr ant wire will turn on the power amp, this didn't seem obvious because the BMW doesn't have a power antenna. And when you are using the DVD player or the iPod connection you need the P Conn wire to turn on the car power amp as the ant pwr is disabled because you are no longer using the radio and Kenwood assumes you will not need the antenna so no power to this lead.

Solder all three wires together and you should have sound all the time.

Conecting phone to car


Vehicle Needs to be 2008 or later with Bluetooth. If you have a 2005 to 2007 or an aftermarket deck with a USB port you can always use your USB charging cable and plug it in.
If your car has Apple play, you need to enable that on your iPhone in settings>General> car play. Be sure your car is in "pair mode" and that your iPhone Bluetooth is enabled.
For android, turn on Bluetooth and enable "pair mode" on your vehicle. Go back to your phone and select Bluetooth and look for Devices with the vehicle manufacturer signal i.e. GMC1465. On your phone, tap on the signal and follow the instructions.
Good luck

User manuals free downloads


Hi. I may be able to help you, but I will need more information. Specifically, which device are you trying to pair to your iPhone? I assume you're talking about Bluetooth, right? You can use Bluetooth devices with your iPhone, including headsets, car kits, stereo headphones, or an Apple Wireless Keyboard.

To specifically answer your question, I would need more information about what you are trying to pair with your phone. Note that the documentation that came with your device (headset, car kit, etc) should contain instructions. Is it a Plantronics that you're trying to pair by any chance?

Also, from the title of your post, it appears that you're trying find free manuals for your iPhone. You can access the iPhone Manual from this site: http://support.apple.com/manuals/
If that link doesn't work for you, just go to www.apple.com, click on the Support tab located in the bar at the top of the screen, then scroll all the way to the bottom of the page and look for Manuals under the Resources column in the rectangular "Support" box at the bottom. From the new page that opens up, select "iPhone User Guide -- For iOS 7.1 software." You can download the manual or simply view it. It is very long! Bluetooth Devices are located in Chapter 3: Basics, page 35. BUT, the manual doesn't really tell you anymore than what I've listed below.

Here are some basics, if that is all you're needing:

Turn Bluetooth on. Go to Settings > Bluetooth.
Connect to a Bluetooth device. Tap the device in the Devices list, then follow the onscreen instructions to connect to it. See the documentation that came with the device for information about Bluetooth pairing. (For information about using an Apple Wireless Keyboard, there are different instructions.)

iPhone must be within about 30 feet (10 meters) of the Bluetooth device.

More basic instructions are here:
Return audio output to iPhone. Turn off or unpair the device, turn off Bluetooth in Settings > Bluetooth, or use AirPlay to switch audio output to iPhone. See AirPlay on page 34. Audio output returns to iPhone whenever the Bluetooth device is out of range.
Bypass your Bluetooth device. To use the iPhone receiver or speaker for phone calls:
Answer a call by tapping the iPhone screen.
During a call, tap Audio and choose iPhone or Speaker Phone.
Turn off the Bluetooth device, unpair it, or move out of range.
Turn off Bluetooth in Settings > Bluetooth.
Unpair a device. In Settings > Bluetooth, tap next to the device, then tap "Forget this Device." If you don't see the Devices list, make sure Bluetooth is on.

Did you recently update your iPhone 3GS firmware to iOS 4.x ? There is a signficant number of people with this problem after the firmware update. Here are two possible solutions that have worked for some people.

1) Turn off your iPhone (hold the power switch down,then swipie off). Turn the deck on to your USB1 or USB2 (whatever you are using). Now plug the iPhone into the deck. This should turn the iPhone on, and "reset" the connection to the USB.

2) Turn the deck on and switch to the proper USB source. Connect the iPhone to the deck, then initiate a "hard reset" of the iPhone (hold the power

How to set up to iphone


First open the blueooth setting on the iphone
start the bluetooth service(turn on) on the iphone.
Power on the bluetooth headset.
search devices in iphone, wait till it finishes searching, until you see the name of your bluetooth headset.
the headset would blink two or three time(could be more depending on the brand)
then at the iphone screen a pop out will come asking for the passcode or passkey.
The passkey default would be always 0000 or 00000, you should see your product manual or documentation of your specific bluetooth headset if you are not sure on the passcode.
If connection is a success. the headset would blink and the iphone woould veify and lists it to itself.
Now you have a working bluetooth headset.

How to pair with iphone


Hello



1.From the main home screen of the iphone open "SETTINGS".


2.From the setting menu go to "GENERAL".


3.From General go to "BLUETOOTH".


4.In the Bluetooth menu you will see an on/off switch. Make sure you turn the switch to "ON".



5.From here you want to go to your bluetooth headset. Hold the on button for about 5-10 seconds until the light starts blinking. Once light is blinking go back to iphone.



6.In the Bluetooth menu (same as step 4) your iphone should have discovered your bluetooth headset. However if it is not paired yet. Open the headset menu.


7.In the headset menu you are required to enter the appropriate PIN number (which should be given inside your bluetooth headset instruction manual).



8.After you have entered the correct PIN number press connect.



9.From here your Bluetooth Headset should be connected and ready to use.

Yes, you can pair your iPhone with any bluetooth headset. I have used many different Plantronics headsets and all have worked perfectly.
On the iPhone, go to Settings (the gears icon), click GENERAL, then Bluetooth and make sure it's switched to "On". Then, follow the pairing instructions that come with the headset.

Iphone won't work with bluetooth in mazda 3 2010 My iphone shuts off whenI try to use the bluetooth system in my mazda 3


iPhone has had bluetooth since the first model in 2007. With iPhone OS/firmware 3.0 (free for all iPhone users), iPhones are fully A2DP compliant and link with Mazda bluetooth.
My current experience is with a 2010 Mazda3 and iPhone 3GS, where I get phone and iPod functionality via bluetooth (yes, without jailbreaking), though the steering-wheel controls are limited to play/pause and volume only.
