I just got a 2011 Elantra Limited. I too have a Pantech C520. I also have exactly the same problem with outgoing calls at very very low volume, but incoming calls are great.
There was a response which said you could go into the cars setup and adjust the volume. This is correct, but it only affects the volume on incoming, repeat, incoming calls.
Anybody got a solution? I would even settle for a suggestion. Thx

The number one reason for not buying a car upon a visit to the dealership is "we have to do our research". Apparently you didn't do yours. The list is easily found by doing a simple google search. The sales professional is not at fault here. Next time don't just lie and say "we haven't done our research", actually do the research.

I downloaded the "Bluetooth File Transfer" app and I now have full access to my contacts in my '11 Hyundai Sonata

Sailpro, who would think that a bluetooth speakerphone wouldn't work properly with a bluetooth compatible phone and think of "doing a simple google search" on that topic? EVERYTHING bluetooth is compatible with EVERYTHING ELSE bluetooth, from phone to phone, phone to headset, phone to dongle, dongle to dongle, etc. I have NEVER had a connectivity problem with anything bluetooth before. That is, until I bought my 2012 Elantra that is not compatible with my HTC EVO 4G! I am re-pairing the two at least once a week. My phone book doesn't accurately transfer to the car, and even after disabling phone book syncing the system still tells me to "please wait" when trying to access the phone from the steering wheel controls. And, yes, I also have problems with the volume on my calls, both incoming AND outgoing. Shame on Hyundai for putting crappy (and apparently outdated) technology in a 2012 vehicle and marketing it as a "safety" feature and shame on the salespeople who tout this "safety feature" as a reason to buy the car without telling you "Btw, if you're phone's not 5 years old it won't work right." Which, btw, is ridiculous because my father bought a 2012 Elantra at the same time I did and he is hooked on his 5 year old phone and he has the exact same problems.
Hmmm....class action lawsuit, anyone?

I too have a lemon law issue with the Blue Tooth not working properly. I have had 3-4 radios put into the car already and the problem is still not solved. I have had two compatible phones paired.
I agree the Blue Tooth technology list is behind the times. I had to have Verizon pull me out an antiquated phone so that I could try to resolve the Blue tooth issue, but it failed again.
By the way, does your HD radio hold a station.. anywhere? Mine doesn't. I was told that all the cars do that. Why put the bells and whistles on the car if they don't work. I know others manufacturers have the HD technology and their cars actually operate.
What is the magnussum moss warranty act? I am going to arbitration tomorrow morning. After the way I've been treated over the past 14 months, I do not want anything to do with Hyundai. Wish me luck! Hopefully this will be the last post on this site.

EVERYTHING bluetooth is compatible with EVERYTHING ELSE bluetooth
If only it were so. As with most tech standards, it is versioned. And different manufacturers will have different means of achieving compatibility with their targeted version. Sometimes problems arise that shouldn't.
Case in point: My wife & I had 2 cell phones from the same manufacturer. They're from the same generation though they were different models. Mine synced with my car just fine but hers never would. It wouldn't even get a successful initial pairing. All devices - the car & both phones - were manufactured in 2009.
Was the problem with the phone or the car? Both worked with other BT devices but just wouldn't work with each other. I can't blame the car because it paired just fine with my phone. But I also can't blame her phone as it paired just fine with a regular BT headset. Maybe it would have worked if we'd pair them during a full moon after sacrificing a goat.
Glitches when engineering compatibility based on a standard go back many years. I can remember in the very early 1980s when everyone made their printers compatible with the Epson MX80 yet several devices were "mostly" compatible and would glitch if you tried to do anything esoteric with them.
My wife has yet to pair her Samsung Galaxy S with her 2012 Elantra so I can't comment on it just yet.
#106 of 191 voice command wont recognize names
Nov 27, 2011 (9:38 pm)
I just purchased a 2012 sonata SE turbo and have had no issues with pairing my blackberry 9700. However after working fine for about a day, now when i hit the voice command button and say "call xxx" it doesnt understand me or says "this option is not available in the current mode" or suggests a # such as "207" which isnt even close to what I am saying. Does anyone know why this happens? Before today it worked fine and I had no troubles getting it to understand my request. Thanks.

Sounds like a problem with the microphone pickup garbling what you're saying or the voice recognition system. Probably not a Bluetooth issue in and of itself. You might try manually placing a call & then using the Sonata's Bluetooth for the conversation. If that works - the other party can hear you fine - then the problem is in the voice recognition system.

Thanks for the reply. The other way you said works fine. I read somewhere else it may be getting interference from and ipod and I had just hooked up my ipod when this started happening so I'm going to disconnect the ipod and see if I have better luck. Thanks.
#109 of 191 Sonata bluetooth problem
Dec 06, 2011 (11:06 am)
My bluetooth has stopped working recently. When I try to make a call, it states " downloading phone book" and never starts the connection. If I make the call on my phone directly, the bluetooth works. Any suggestions?
