: Bluetooth Pairing Question

05-26-2010, 04:21 PM
I'm hoping someone can steer me in the right direction. I got a new cell phone, an LG CF360, and am trying to pair it to my 2006 530i, no nav. I have done this twice with other phones in the past but must be having a brain spasm this time. I can't find the directions anywhere in the BMW manual.

When using the new phone's menu I can search for "new devices" but it never shows the car as an available device. It says "no devices found". Is there somewhere in the I-Drive where I have to set the car's bluetooth to "visible" or something like that? All I get in the car is a "searching for paired phone" message and since I no longer have the original paired phones it never connects. It just says "paired phone not found". :dunno:

Any help would be appreciated.
