Hi all,

I am not able to pair my iPhone 5 running iOS 7 with my Merc. Anyone else having the same issue?

P.S. please restrain yourself from saying "its a beta"!

Did it work before you had iOS 7? If so I'm sure it's a Bluetooth bug with iOS 7. It is a...
haha!

Yep all good before. My brother is running iOS 7 in his VW and working as normal for him.

Not entirely the same but I had a problem with my Scion on a beta of iOS 5 or 6. I'm sure it is just a bug because it was sorted out by the end for me. Is it just not seeing the car's system on your phone? Other than clearing the Bluetooth memory of both devices and pairing again I can't think of anything.

It's all the little annoying stuff like this that's making me wait for a couple more beta releases before I have my friend add me to his developer account.

Other than that I haven't found anything that makes me wish I held off. Hopefully another beta out on Tuesday.

Bluetooth pairing is working perfectly between iOS 7 and my 2013 BMW. I have also successfully paired my iOS 7 phone with Infiniti, Nissan, Lexus, Buick and Cadillac cars which I rented at Hertz in the past couple of weeks (I travel a lot).

It's working fine in my Honda and Mini Cooper... Also working great with Jawbone gear. Maybe just delete the BT profiles for the car from your phone. Then delete the phone profiles from your car... Re-sync and see if it all works then.

I have a 1993 Plymouth Sundance and I'm having trouble connecting with iOS 7's beta. Must be a bug, anybody else have the same issue?

Yes, I'm not able to use my bluetooth in my moms 2013 merc C350 . It will not come up as the listed bluetooth. I can play it with a AUX cord though but not USB (theres a USB plug in her glove department) But the USB didn't work with ios 6 either i think......

I have a sony car stereo receiver http://store.sony.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10551&storeId=10151&langId=-1&productId=8198552921666467653 thats hooked up to my Plymouth Breeze (1998) and it runs fine on USB (the sony receiver has a usb port too!) and even AUX... How did you try to hook up a iphone with a 1993 plymouth anyways?... do you also have a receiver?

Like with iOS 6, it's all about what the head unit is capable of. More specifically, how it complies with BT standards. With that said, I haven't tried to pair iOS 7 to my Honda.

I do not have a receiver. I can't find the eyes-free Siri button on my steering wheel.
...you have a 1993 Plymouth...
Not even 1993 Ferraris had Bluetooth bro. If you don't have a receiver how are you connecting your phone and if it's a 1993 car why are you expecting a siri-button???

It may help if you specify the year and model of the car you are referring to. There are several COMAND revisions and external/internal devices that Mercedes-Benz uses to connect the iPhone to the in-car telematics.
