Curious if series 3 LTE can work with hands off in car system.
Had some difficulty pairing with my car last night.
I couldn’t get to pair with my Subaru yesterday. The watch could see the Subaru on Bluetooth but the pairing never would complete. But Subaru has had some trouble with pairing phones etc in general so I was blaming Subaru not the watch
Does your car have Car Play?
It does not, but the tech inside the car is pretty advanced I’d say. The Watch did recognize it in Bluetooth settings.
Does your Subaru have Cap Play? I have a 2016 Honda Civic Touring and the only way I can get hands free on my phone is to have it plugged in.
No car play for me. I know it took some time to get my iPhone 6 to connect and it’s a sort of known thing on Subaru forums
My watch and my UConnect system could communicate and the watch could see the PIN, but pairing failed. I submitted a feature request to Apple and to UConnect to support watch pairing.
I tried again this morning -and again the watch could see the car and tried to pair -but it did not work. And I think it sucked the life out of my battery - the watch kept trying to connect and I could not figure out how to turn off bluetooth on the watch. Tried turning watch on and off - but still had the trying to connect spinning symbol
My watch paired to my car no problem - a 2008 Lexus ES350.
Sweet, gonna try later in the Lexus.
Question though, what happens if you have both the watch and phone connected? Does it overwrite one connection?
Like both connected in sense of having both in the car..
My Bluetooth only automatically connects to the last device connected. So, if I've connected last to my watch, it will automatically connect to that. However, if I then want to connect to my phone, even if I don't have my watch with me, it won't automatically connect and I need to select the device manually and hit connect. Then the next time it will automatically connect to the phone, until I change it. Some newer cars let you pick a default and it automatically connects to the default unless it's not in the car, then it will connect to another device. Maybe yours does that.
Pairing and calls work great in my BMW. The only issue I ran into was that it doesn't fetch my contacts when connected to the watch as it does with my iPhone. A note, when I first paired it the car prioritized the watch over the iPhone, very annoying. Unpairing and pairing the iPhone after the watch fixed this.
I can’t seem to get my watch to pair in my BMW. It detects it but never completes the process, did you do anything special?
Nothing special. Just tried again to make sure. I have a 2005 5 series with the nav option.
How do you acess the watch blutooth menu? My 2015 Audi is not finding it
Settings -> Bluetooth
