PAIRING YOUR CELLULAR PHONE
IMPORTANT NOTE: Your Bluetooth cellular phone must be paired with the
BlueFusion system before use. Once the initial pairing process has been
completed, your phone should easily connect and disconnect to BlueFusion
during normal use.
PAIRING INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Once the hardware has been properly installed, insert the key and start the
vehicle. The BlueFusion interface needs to read the vehicle’s ignition codes to
properly initialize.
2. Press the “AM/SAT”, or “SAT” button on the radio to get to the XM Sat radio
source. NOTE: On Toyota Highlander: PRESS FM2 then AM to access the
SAT Radio source.
3A.Vehicle’s with Satellite Radio installed: Press #6 preset button or touch
the “->Bluefusion” button on Navigation radios to get to BlueFusion screen.
3B. Vehicle’s without Satellite Radio installed. BlueFusion menu screen will
be displayed at this step. You do not have to use Preset #6 Button or the
“->Bluefusion” touch screen button to switch between Satellite and
BlueFusion screens.
4. Once in the BlueFusion mode, you will hear a beep tone indicating that
BlueFusion is in pairing mode. (BlueFusion enters pairing mode automatically
when the Ignition is turned on and no phone is currently paired.)
5. From your phone’s Bluetooth menu, perform a search for new devices (refer
to your cell phone user manual). The phone should display “BlueFusion”
6. Select [pair to] BlueFusion and enter pin code 0000 when prompted. This will
complete the pairing process. (Once your phone paired with BlueFusion, the
beep tones should stop and BlueFusion is now ready for use.)
ADDITIONAL PARING NOTES:
• If pairing is unsuccessful, repeat steps 1-6 above.
• After your phone has been initially paired with BlueFusion, it should easily
re-connect for future use. Many phones will automatically re-connect to the
BlueFusion system as long as you keep
your phones Bluetooth feature active. If your phone does not freely connect
and disconnect to BlueFusion, consult your phones owner’s manual to check
for addition options that may require enabling.

SWITCHING BETWEEN SOURCES
Your BlueFusion system appears as an XM source to the Factory radio. This is
why it is required to go to the XM Radio band first to your BlueFusion screen
While using other sources other than XM (BlueFusion) the interface will
automatically switch to the XM source when you have an incoming phone call.
The radio switches through the sources to find the XM source on the radio,
some audio may bleed through while switching sources. When a phone call
is ended, your radio will NOT automatically switch back to the original source
you were previously on, this feature only works when previously listening to XM
radio. Use the source buttons to switch back to the original source you were
using previously on.

A2DP/AVRCP STREAMING AUDIO
A2DP STREAMING AUDIO/ AVRCP REMOTE CONTROLS:
Important Cell Phone Disclaimer: READ FIRST!
BlueFusion will support audio streaming until it is in paired with a cell phone
(whether this is within the same device supporting multiple profiles or two
separate device.
-While streaming A2DP, redial and voice dial functions are DISABLED.
-Volume output through A2DP will vary from device to device, some may have
distortion at full volume and some level control at the device may be necessary.
-The A2DP Audio stream output from Apple iPhone 3GS is too high for the
BlueFusion system and will sound distorted.
PAIRING A2DP FROM YOUR PHONE:
Most phones capable of streaming audio through the A2DP profile will automatically pair to this profile when pairing with the hands free profile, otherwise refer
to your phones user manual for pairing instructions.
PAIRING A2DP FROM A SEPERATE DEVICE:
To pair a separate device, such as the Scosche TZ4 or other Bluetooth device,
there must first be a phone paired to the Hands Free profile. Ensure that the
phone is paired only to handsfree profile and not A2DP, refer to your phones
manual for selective pairing functions. Once the phone is paired only to the
hands-free profile you may activate the pairing process from your second
device. Music will start playing once the device has paired.
