2. Installation
Switch off ignition and disconnect the vehicle’s battery! The interface needs a
permanent 12V source. If according to factory rules disconnecting the battery
is to be avoided, it is usually sufficient to put the vehicle is sleep-mode. In
case the sleep-mode does not show success, disconnect the battery with a
resistor lead.
If power source is not taken directly from the battery, the connection has to be
checked for being start-up proven and permanent.
Place of installation
The interface is installed on the backside of the navigation/radio unit which must be
removed for installation of the interface.
Removal of head unit and connections
Unlock the navigation/radio unit and remove it from the
Version 13.09.2010

3. Interface operation
On vehicles with RCD510 orRNS510 the head-unit’s phone menu can be used to control the
blueLOGiC® interface. On vehicles with FIS display, it is possible to control the blueLOGiC®
interface through the steering-wheel buttons and the FIS’ phone menu. If a vehicle is
equiped with head-unit and FIS, both controlling options are available. Controls by FIS is
offering more options in comparison to controls by head-unit. Some settings can be changed
by dialing setting codes which is especially needed in vehicles with retrofitted
RCD510/RNS510 without FIS display.
Pairing the blueLOGiC® interface with a mobile phone
Version 13.09.2010
If a mobile phone had been paired to the blueLOGiC® interface (reqirement is an occurred
pairing with a mobile phone, see above), a connection will be automatically established as
soon as the mobile phone is in reach. If multiple paired mobile phones are simultaneously in
reach, the blueLOGiC® interface will be connected to the first phone.
Up to 10 mobile phones can simultaneously be paired with the blueLOGiC® interface. If a
11th phone is paired, the oldest entry is automatically deleted. In some cases, it becomes
necessary to put the vehicle in sleep mode to enable correct function of the 11th phone.
For pairing, enable the pairing mode of the mobile phone (see manual of the mobile phone).
Search with the mobile phone for „blueLOGiC“ or „CK5050N“ and connect with activation
code „1234“.Some mobile phones try to connect to the blueLOGiC ® interface with another
function as "hands free". Check this attitude and switch the adjustment to "hands free" if
necessary (see manual of the mobile phone).
If you have connection problems between mobile phone and the blueLOGIC, first check at
the parrot website whether an update for the parrot chip is available. The part number of
the parrot chip can be found in the specifications at the end of the manual.
Loading of phone book
After each establishment of connection to the mobile phone, the phone book of the mobile
phone will be loaded to the vehicle infotainment.
Depending on the mobile phone either it will be loaded from the phone’s memory or the
SIM card. This process can take a few minutes. If the phone book is no or not completely
loaded, it might be necessary to copy the contacts from the SIM-card to the mobile phone
Some mobile phones do not automatically load the phone book to the infotainment, but the
sending must be manually initiated (the procedure varies depending on the mobile phone,
z.B. “send phone book to Bluetooth”).
The manual procedure must be repeated for refreshment if the mobile phone’s contacts
have been edited.
The memory of blueLOGiC® interface can save about 1000 call numbers.
Phone functions through head-unit
The interface enables the phone bus of the factory
navigation system. Therefore in principal, the operation
through the head-unit is analogue as described in the
manual of the navigation/radio system.
