Enable the Bluetooth® function on PCM

When connecting via Bluetooth®, the phone is connected to the PCM using the hands-free profile (HFP).

The PCM serves as a Bluetooth® hands-free unit for the connected phone and can access the contents of the phone book, the call lists and the messages of each phone. It is therefore possible to transfer an ongoing conversation to the phone after leaving the vehicle.

  1. You will find further information on Bluetooth® profiles in the operating instructions for your phone.
