Adding a new Bluetooth device

In order that your Bluetooth device can be found by the PCM, please ensure that the Bluetooth function on the device has been switched on and set to "visible".
If you wish to connect a cell phone using the SIM Access Profile (PCM telephone only), external SIM mode may also need be activated on some devices.
Further details can be found in the operating manual for your cell phone.

  1. Press the button.
  2. Press the button or touch the tab of the same name in the header.
  3. Select "SET PHONE"
    > "Bluetooth settings"
    > "New device".
    A search is started and a list of the devices found is displayed.
  4. Choose the desired device by selecting it in the list.
    A Bluetooth code is displayed that you must enter in the corresponding Bluetooth device. Once you have entered the code, successful authorization of the device is shown on the display.

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.
It can take a few seconds for the Bluetooth device to be authorized.
If the list of authorized Bluetooth devices is full (max. 5 cell phones), you must first delete a device from the list. An appropriate message will be displayed. To find out more, please refer to the section "Deleting an authorized Bluetooth device from the list" on page 92.
