Hands-free calling is one of the main features of SYNC. Once you pair your cell phone, you can access many options using the touchscreen or voice commands. While the system supports a variety of features, many are dependent on your cell phone’s functionality.
At a minimum, most cell phones with Bluetooth wireless technology support the following functions:
  • Answering an incoming call.
  • Ending a call.
  • Using privacy mode.
  • Dialing a number.
  • Redialing.
  • Call waiting notification.
  • Caller ID.
Other features, such as text messaging using Bluetooth and automatic phonebook download, are cell phone-dependent features. To check your cell phone’s compatibility, see your cell phone’s user manual and visit www.SYNCMyRide.com, www.SYNCMyRide.ca or www.syncmaroute.ca.
Pairing Your Cell Phone for the First Time
WARNING
  Driving while distracted can result in loss of vehicle control, crash and injury. We strongly recommend that you use extreme caution when using any device that may take your focus off the road. Your primary responsibility is the safe operation of your vehicle. We recommend against the use of any hand-held device while driving and encourage the use of voice-operated systems when possible. Make sure you are aware of all applicable local laws that may affect the use of electronic devices while driving.

The first thing you must do to use the phone features of SYNC is to pair your Bluetooth-enabled cell phone with SYNC. This allows you to use your cell phone in a hands-free manner.
Note:  This is a speed-dependent feature. It is unavailable when your vehicle is traveling at speeds over 5  km/h.
