Inge,

 

I am not entirely sure what integration features you are looking for but if it is basic hands free operation over Bluetooth® then I'd say that the answer is probably yes - although this depends also on what the Range Rover offers.

 

I use my BOLD through Acura's Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® option and it works quite well ... once the phone is paired all the other features of the car (e.g. muting of the stereo, dialing phone numbers from the nav system location directory, etc.) work properly as soon as I get into the car with my bold.

 

(I have noted that my BOLD seems to drop the link to the car a bit more often than my previous Pearl did!  Not sure of the cause.)

Re: Blackberry Bold 9000 build in car

I have had similar dropping issues.  Just switched to a Bold from Curve, and had zero issues with Curve.  With Bold, it's hit or miss with the initial pairing.  Seems that when it doesn't pair, taking it out of the belt case lets it pair right away.  Occasionally as well, if it does pair, when I make a call it drops the call as soon as the phone connects and the call is then completed with the phone, not through the Handsfreelink.

 

Bold is set to trusted (not prompt), and to allow outgoing calls always.

 

Any help appreciated, I've tried a variety of different setting combinations without much difference.

 

Thanks!

Re: Blackberry Bold 9000 build in car

I am having the exact same issue.  At first the Bold was flakey with its connecting, but since installing the new software version as suggested by Rogers, the bluetooth drops on outbound calls in the Acura.  And as stated, the calls continue to dial on the handset and you are left scrambling to grab the handset to complete the call.

I have some buds a Rogers looking into this - anyone else with any ideas?

Brian

Re: Blackberry Bold 9000 build in car

I just migrated from a Rogers Curve to the Rogers BOLD 9000.

 

The BOLD bluetooth is dropping on out-going calls only. Inbound works fine.

It drops the bluetooth to the phone (through the car) and continues on the phone itself.

Just as others are mentioning.

 

This is very annoying...

 

My car is a HONDA 2009 Pilot.  No past issues with the same car using the curve.

This seems like an issue with the firmware on the BOLD.

My current ABOUT is,

v4.6.0.162

 

 

I'm going to try turning wiFi off.

Let you guys know.

Re: Blackberry Bold 9000 build in car

Just tried to activate my BB Bold in my 2008 S Class mercedes.  The car recognizes and sinks the address book but always indicates the phone is off when I try to activate for calling.  Any suggestions?  (On AT&T).

Re: Blackberry Bold 9000 build in car

I'm returning my BOLD tomorrow.

Disappointed about the bluetooth issue. I can't get it to work in my car.

Just going back to my curve for now. Maybe switch to the iPhone.

 

Why can't RIM fix this issue?

 

This is a firmware issue or design issue with the BOLD.  Bluetooth is NOT working correctly.
