With some cell phones, the connection request by the PCM must be explicitly confirmed on the cell phone. This may even have to be done a number of times in some cases, for example before transferring the phonebook. To avoid this request, you can authorize the PCM in your cell phone's list of devices. The connection will then be established automatically and without the need for further checks in future.
Further details can be found in the operating manual for your cell phone.

With some cell phones, the Bluetooth code must be directly provided by the cell phone during the connection request. If this is the case, enter any 4-digit code in your cell phone and confirm it with OK. You will then be shown a keypad on the PCM display where you must enter the same code and confirm it.

To find out more, please refer to the sections ""Authorized Bluetooth devices" on page 92" and ""Adding a new Bluetooth device" on page 93".

Having a conversation

There is a hands-free microphone in the steering column trim panel (sports car) or in the roof control console (Cayenne) of the vehicle. This means that you can conduct all telephone calls without using a handset.
You control the volume using the left rotary knob .

The microphone is directed towards the driver to optimize the hands-free quality.
