Samsung i637 (jack) Hands-Free in Car

Recommended Posts


When I am connected to my Plantronics Bluetooth ear-piece and make a call on my phone, everything works fine and audio is through Bluetooth automatically on both inbound and outbound calls.

However, when I am instead using/connected to the Bluetooth hands-free system in my 2009 Honda Accord, the audio does not automatically transfer to the hands-free system on outbound calls. On inbound calls, its fine. The problem ONLY happens when I select and make phone call from my phone. When I select and make a phone call from the car's Hands-Free Address Book in the Honda, all is fine.

Apparently, the phone thinks that when I select and make a call directly from it, that is should keep Audio services locally on it. I beleive this is wrong, as Bluetooth Hands-free to the car systems is successfully connected.

When the issue happens, I can work-around it using one of two methods.

Upon answering the call from the car system, I can either;

1) Verbally issue a command to my car's hands-free voice recognition system and say "Transfer", and it switch audio to car hands-free

2) From the phone, I can select menu and scroll to "Turn hands-free on".

Other phones do not have this mode of bluetooth operation within this same car.

Question: Is there a way I can make the phone automatically go to Bluetooth audio when connected in my car, no matter which type of bluetooth its connected too?

Please note, I have upgraded to Windows 6.5 and it made no difference.

Anybody any ideas?

Much appreciated.
