Pairing a Bluetooth Phone

Pairing allows you to use your Bluetoothcapable phone hands-free to make and receive phone calls, access your contact list, recent calls, etc. It also allows you to play media files from your phone. Once a phone is paired, Model 3 can connect to it whenever the phone is within range.

To pair a phone, follow these steps while sitting inside Model 3:

  1. Ensure both the touchscreen and the phone are powered on.

  3.  Touch the Bluetooth icon on the top of the touchscreen.
  4. On the touchscreen, touch Add New Device > Start Search. The touchscreen displays a list of all available Bluetooth devices within operating distance.
  5. On the touchscreen, touch the phone with which you want to pair. Within a few seconds, the touchscreen displays a randomly generated number, and your phone should display the same number.
  6. Check that the number displayed on your phone matches the number displayed on the touchscreen. Then, on your phone, confirm that you want to pair.
  7. If prompted on your phone, specify whether you want to allow Model 3 to access your contacts and media files.

When paired, Model 3 automatically connects to the phone, and the touchscreen displays the Bluetooth symbol next to the phone's name to indicate that the connection is active.

Importing Contacts and Recent Calls

If access is turned on, you can use the phone app to display, and make calls to, people in your list of contacts and on your recent calls lists
