#90 of 308 iPhone compatibility problem?
Jan 19, 2009 (10:31 am)
I recently switched from a Blackberry to a 3G iPhone. My 2005 TL Bluetooth worked fine with the Blackberry, but since I got the iPhone, about 50% of the time that I get an incoming call, the radio silences, I answer the phone, the radio comes back on, and the calling party ends up listening to my radio, but can't hear me. Acura says it's an iPhone software problem. The Apple store yesterday said it was an Acura problem. What now? Outgoing calls are not affected.

If the iPhone is on the Acura approved list, which it is, Acura is responsible for the problem unless there is a firmware update. At least that's what I was told.

#93 of 308 Firmware updates for HFL
Feb 10, 2009 (7:48 am)
I was surprised to learn today that Acura HFL does not release any updates to their software for HFL. I don't think any software is perfect how do they fix the issues with HFL?
Also, to add audio streaming feature via bluetooth is a firmware update, why not make it available to the cars that already have bluetooth and to the customers that have phones with A2DP.
It does not make a business sense from a luxury car brand not offer upgrades to their HFL. Am i missing something?
#94 of 308 Turning HandsFree Off
Mar 10, 2009 (10:52 am)
I do not use Hands Free. Whenever I do people complain that I sound distant. I want to use my bluetooth/BlackBerry in the car but when I do my blackberry continues to come detecting the handsfree. It annoying. Anyway to turn bluetooth off in the 200 Acura TL?

I don't know the specific steps, but you'll need to "unlink" the phone and the car. Look for this in the car and phone manuals.
#96 of 308 Bluetooth not BOOTING UP
Apr 05, 2009 (11:19 am)
I have an 05 Acura TL. My bluetooth is not working. I tried holding down the the TALK button but nothing happens. I tried holding down the BACK button but nothing happens. I tried BOOTING UP but the display just keeps reading BOOTING UP. Is this something the Acura dealer needs to diagnose?
Thanks for you help

Sounds like it if you've had your phone successful paired already. Would you come back and post what happened? Cost, problem etc. My bluetooth has been kind of funky, sometimes not hearing my command at all, sometimes not hanging up. I'm wondering how much Acura charges for repairs.

The solution was simple:
1. Delete paired device from phone
2. Remove battery from the phone, wait 10 seconds and replace. This will reset the phone and the Bluetooth connection.
3. Pair phone to the HandsFreeLink
If this does not work hit the menu botton for the HandsFreeLink and give the command"System Clear". This will clear the system of all phones, phone numbers and recorded voice commands and will reset to the default settings. Once this is done repeat the 3 steps above to reset the phone.
