I have just upgraded my Blackberry from the 9800 torch which was working fine in my Vauxhall Astra with the built in Bluetooth. The address book synchronised with the car and voice dialing etc worked.
The Z10 however will connect to the in car bluetooth but does not synchronise with the address book etc and calls have to be made and terminated from the Z10 handset which is useless when driving!
Is anyone else having this issue? Are RIM looking into compatibility issues? I can't even go back to the Torch as the sim card is a different size!
Solved! Go to Solution.

Welcome to the BlackBerry® Support Community Forums.
This may be a compatibility issue with the BlackBerry Z10 smartphone, please review the following article for more information on BlackBerry smartphone Bluetooth car compatibility: http://btsc.webapps.blackberry.com/btsc/KB29616

Thanks for the link to KB29616, unfortunately the Vauxhall link is no longer valid.
I have contacted Vauxhall direct and they state that they have not tested against the Z10 yet. I find it strange that there appears to be no standard for for bluetooth.
The car is brand new as is the phone, my Torch 9800 was fully functional with the car yet I have to initiate and finish calls using the Z10 the only in car features that work are the microphone and speaker!
