Acura TL & Bluetooth - Verizon on the Horizon?


Mar 16, 2004, 2:31 PM
Please alllow me to vent:

😁 Exactly how long has Verizon had their head up... never mind, that's rhetorical. Technology just seems to pass them by. Isn't there a law about talking on your cell phone while you drive and... wait, I did it again.

Toyota, and Acura have incorporated Bluetooth into their vehicles so we can use hands-free and voice dialing all via Bluetooth. Verizon is just now waking up. Man that @#$$& me off.

I have heard, and can some one confirm this, that Bluetooth "turns off??" in this phone after a period of time?
Once a phone is "paired" to the vehicle, in my case the Acura TL, is this phone going to function and interface with the TL's hands free link? Does anyone know about this?
Acura has an Amazing websit...

BMW has Bluetooth and last time I checked they were German

Why yes... as a matter of fact they do.
Mercedes hasn't gotten to that off ramp on bon, bon, autobahn. They stop in Switzerland to check their bank account first. I looked at at an M500, and couldn't believe that a phone system could cost $2000. The point is if the Car Manufacturers are incorporating Bluetooth Technology into their cars as a safety and luxury convenience, why has it take soooo long for Verizon to step up to the plate, and respond with phones? Yes, this is really about PHONES. 😳

I have a 2004 Prius and have the same issue - NO Bluetooth Verizon phones. I signed up with Cingular and tried a Sony Ericson T616 for three days just to experience Bluetooth. Phone bonded with car just fine, but service was not up to Verizon quality. Almost considered waiting for the Motorola V600 - supposedly due out in April, but if you can't make a clear call what's the point? Cancelled Cingular service today - well within the 15 day trial period.

Bluetooth is cool - come on Verizon and Motorola it is 2004...

Just another frustration with VZW. Great reception, terrible release time with products of todays world. Maybe they will bring this phone out soon, so we may share in todays technologies. 🙄

If you have a speaker-phone, what more can bluetooth do as far as handsfree?

Bluetooth connects various devices without wires. So you can use a Bluetooth enabled headset. I suspect with this phone you will also be able to send pictures, synch the phone book, etc. via Bluetooth to your home computer (or any computer that is Bluetooth cabable). Or you can use your phone as a modem for your hand held device if its Bluetooth enabled and has the web software (HP IPaq, certain Sony's, etc.). The disclaimer: I haven't seen this phone and am only relaying my experiences with Bluetooth on a T68i.

Go to Acura.com and see what you can do with
a Bluetooth enabled phone, and the New TL.
Then come back and ask about a speaker phone
or talking thru the built in Acura Mic, and
listening thru the 5.1 surround system,
and dialing by command, and interfacing it
with the navigation system.

No one has yet to be able to answer my ORIGINAL question.
Does the Bluetooth in THIS phone stay active, if it's connected to a power source.

I use a 270C with Motorola's 2nd gen BT headset (not the HS810, the one just prior to that with the longer battery life than the original). I can confirm that Motorola's interpretation of bluetooth has always been on the "wacky" side. Either that or every other device maker is wacky and MOT is on spec. Of course I can only speak for the 270C (I own two, and three BT adapters), so it remains to be seen if the issues are fixed in the V710, assuming it is even released.

First, the Jabra BT headset never even worked properly with the 270C. Motorola engineers acknowledged that, and said "too bad". Unfortunately, my Motorola he...
