Question about HTC Touch HD Smartphone

I cannot connect my HTC legend to Mercedes Benz car kit

The phone and car pair but they do not connect? Is there any solution or do i give my handset back? Is it because the phone runs on a Google operating system. Will a windows based phone be better??

Thank you

When you state that they will "pair but not connect" does this refer to incoming calls, outgoing ones, or both?

Unfortunately ALL current HTC's have a very crippled Bluetooth chipset fitted and this may be the cause of your problem. For example, none of them (Windows Mobile included) are capable of handsfree Bluetooth voice dialling and this is particularly bad given that WinMo is very strongly featured with voice commands and many HTC models from about three/four years ago had these features as standard. The crippled chipset also means that until very recently, most HTC models could not use Bluetooth to transfer files of any kind, but some models such as the Hero have recently had an update to allow limited functionality in this respect.

I can't state with certainty that the problem you have is to do with the poor Bluetooth chipset which HTC currently appear to be contractually obliged to use, but it's a definite possibility. What is definite is that it's not an Android issue (although Android current and planned releases do not yet incorporate Bluetooth voice dialling either, but that's not an issue when you're using the car to handle the calls).

If you can add details of the exact make and model of your vehicle then I'll try to look into this further for you: it's also not uncommon for vehicle manufacturers to install poorly chosen Bluetooth chipsets and sometimes the cause is a simple case of Brand A simply being unable to get along with Brand B. If you're in a real hurry to resolve this, then definitely change your handset, but insist on being able to try the replacement out with your car before committing to it.

Across the board, Bluetooth on many phones seems to have regressed and is poorer than it was a few years ago. Even the i-Phone is very poor except for the flagship 3GS but even that model is *very* picky about which brands it will usefully work with. Currently, the best and most reliable Bluetooth in my opinion and experience is in the Blackberry range of handsets. If you don't want one covered in buttons then go for the Storm 2 touchscreen. It's not as fun a gadgety as the HTC and Apple models, but is a good solid performer and does everything a phone/mobile browser needs to do very competently.

How can I make phone calls?

It will only make a phone call if you have a phone hooked into the center console. The hook-up kit for your phone is a dealer installed accessory. If you push the "I" button you can connect to service and they can make an emergency call for you.

Just brought a HTC wildfire and I cant find bluetooth to turn it on .

  • For you to listen to music with your headset or car kit, the headset or car kit must support the A2DP Bluetooth profile.
  • Before you connect your headset, you need to make it discoverable so HTC Wildfire S can find it. You can find out how to do this by referring to your headset manual.
  1. From the Home screen, press howtoimage.aspx?id=106492, and then tap Settings > Wireless & networks.
  2. Tap Bluetooth settings.
  3. If the Bluetooth check box is not selected, select it to turn Bluetooth on.
  4. Make sure that the headset is discoverable.
  5. Tap Scan for devices. HTC Wildfire S will start to scan for Bluetooth devices within range.
  6. When you see the name of your headset displayed in the Bluetooth devices section, tap the name. HTC Wildfire S then automatically tries to pair with the headset.
  7. If automatic pairing fails, enter the passcode supplied with your headset.
The pairing and connection status is displayed below the hands-free headset or car kit name in the Bluetooth devices section. When the Bluetooth headset or car kit is connected to HTC Wildfire S, the Bluetooth connected icon howtoimage.aspx?id=106796 is displayed in the status bar. Depending on the type of headset or car kit you have connected, you can then start using the headset or car kit to listen to music and/or make and receive phone calls.

How do i connect a hands free kit to a htc desire

You need to put your hands free device into pairing mode this is usually done by turning the power on and keeping the power button pressed in for about 10 seconds after the power has come on. Then you should get a solid LED light up, (depends on device)

On the phone go into

1 Settings
2 Wireless and Networks
3 Bluetooth Settings
4 Turn on Bluetooth
5 Scan for devices

The name of your hands free kit should appear, select this and the phone will ask if you want to pair with the device, confirm this. You probably will get asked for a passkey or password this is usually four zeros or 1,2,3,4. enter this and confirm. Your device should now be paired and each time you want to use it just turn on your handset Bluetooth then your hands free device and your good to go.

I have a 2004 c240 mercedes how do i connect my iphone 3g to it? I turned on my bluetooth on my phone but it doesn't discover anything so how do i connect my iphone to my c240 mercedes?


Bluetooth compatability is available on Merc vehicles which were originally wired with factory handset (Motorola), iPod adaptor cable & wireless Multi-Handset Interface (MHI). Models from 2007 onwards also had an updated interface.

If your vehicle has the MHI, then it would be a simple case of activating the the MHI device to search for your iphone device.

If you are unsure if you have the MHI adaptor, then contact your local Mercedes Parts Dept. for further advice.

Jealous of your car but besides that. Could you tell me the steps your going through to connect it to your car. Not some blackberries are picky (most) on what they connect to. If the blutooth in your car doesn't resemble a headset etc it may never connect.
