Nissan Bluetooth interface

Most new Nissan vehicles and many Certified Pre-Owned Nissan vehicles come with an incredibly useful feature: Nissan Bluetooth connectivity for both Apple and Android devices! Since Bluetooth phone pairing can initially be tricky business for some, Wolfchase Nissan put together this helpful guide for Nissan Bluetooth phone pairing. Find your device below to get started!

How to Connect to Your Apple iPhone to Nissan Bluetooth

Follow these instructions for Nissan Bluetooth pairing with an Apple iPhone:

  1. Go to settings > Bluetooth and make sure your device’s Bluetooth function is on.
  2. If you have a Nissan vehicle with navigation, press the phone button on your vehicle audio system. Then choose connect > connect new device. If you don’t have navigation, press the Enter/Setting button on your vehicle. Then go to Bluetooth > Add phone.
  3. Look back at your device and go to settings > Bluetooth. Now select MY-CAR.
  4. Your device and your vehicle should now be displaying a PIN number. If they match, you can accept the pairing request on your device!

How to Connect Your Android Phone to Nissan Bluetooth

Fortunately, if you’re trying to connect an Android phone to Nissan Bluetooth, the steps are the same as those outline above for an iPhone:

  1. Go to settings > Bluetooth and make sure your device’s Bluetooth function is on.
  2. If you have a Nissan vehicle with navigation, press the phone button on your vehicle audio system. Then choose connect > connect new device. If you don’t have navigation, press the Enter/Setting button on your vehicle. Then go to Bluetooth > Add phone.
  3. Look back at your device and go to settings > Bluetooth. Now select MY-CAR.
  4. Your device and your vehicle should now be displaying a PIN number. If they match, you can accept the pairing request on your device!

Nissan Bluetooth Troubleshooting

Are the above steps not working? Bluetooth technology is dependable in most cases, but sometimes you’ll have to fiddle with it to get a connection. Here are a few common solutions to connection problems:

  • Other Devices: Probably the most common culprit in Bluetooth phone pairing problems is the existence of other devices. Have anyone who may have a lingering connection to your Nissan model’s Bluetooth go to their phone menu and disconnect — it’s your turn!
  • Proximity: Place your phone close to the system to optimize signal strength.
  • Device Power: Make sure your device has a good amount of juice or plug it in; just like people, sometimes phones behave strangely when they are low on energy.
  • Metal Objects: Just to be safe, move away any coins or pens that may be close to your Bluetooth device.

If you’re still having trouble with any aspect of your Bluetooth connection, or even something like clock setup, the experts at our Nissan service center can help! Be sure to see some of the commonly-asked Nissan Bluetooth questions and answers below, courtesy of nissanusa.com.

What is Bluetooth?

Bluetooth is a wireless technology that enables connectivity between multiple electronic devices by utilizing a 2.4 GHz radio spectrum that has a range of approximately 30 feet. Bluetooth will allow you to use your cell phone hands-free in the vehicle. For more information about Bluetooth wireless technology, please visit www.bluetooth.com.

Is my vehicle compatible with Bluetooth?

Bluetooth compatibility will vary based on the vehicle model and trim. Check Device Compatibility to determine availability.

Is my Bluetooth phone compatible with my vehicle?

Not all Bluetooth phones are compatible.
Phones must have the Bluetooth hands-free profile and be listed as a Nissan-recommended phone to ensure compatibility and quality operation.
We do that by continually evaluating existing and newly released Bluetooth phones.
Want to see if your device is compatible? Check Device Compatibility.

Why is my Bluetooth phone not listed as a compatible device?

Existing Bluetooth phones that are not listed are either being tested for compatibility if new, or are not recommended, because they have not passed Nissan testing.
Major calling functions, like making, accepting, and ending phone calls, did not function properly and/or the Bluetooth connection was not stable.
If your phone is not listed, limited functions may be available, but the system will not operate correctly or to its fullest capability. Want to see if your device is compatible? Check Device Compatibility.

Are new Bluetooth phones compatible with my Nissan?

We’re always on the lookout for new phones, testing the most recent Bluetooth® phones for compatibility with your Nissan.
If you checked Device Compatibility for the device you want to use with our Bluetooth Hands-Free Phone System, but did not see it listed, contact us.

Can I use a Bluetooth adapter to connect to my vehicle?

Bluetooth adapters do not work, only cell phones with Bluetooth built in and listed as a Nissan-recommended phone will operate correctly.

What features are available once I connect my compatible Bluetooth phone to my vehicle?

Once you pair a Nissan-recommended Bluetooth cellular phone to the vehicle, the following features are available:

– Hands-free mobile phone operation with a built-in microphone and utilization of the audio speaker
– Ability to switch between a hands-free call and a private call
– Vehicle-based phonebook
– Voice commands and verbal feedback prompts
– Choice of different ring tones

You can obtain information on how to operate the features of the system in either your vehicle owner’s manual or the Quick Reference Guide.

Are charging cradles available?

Charging cradles are not available. Please use the in-vehicle charger available through your cellular carrier or phone manufacturer.

Is a subscription required to use the Bluetooth Hands-Free Phone System?

A subscription fee is not required to use the Bluetooth Hands-Free Phone System.

Do I have to subscribe to a Bluetooth-specific carrier?

You don’t have to subscribe to a Bluetooth-specific carrier. The system uses your existing carrier.

Is there a warranty for my Bluetooth® Hands-Free Phone System?

The Bluetooth® Hands-Free Phone System is covered under the basic warranty of 36 months/36,000 miles (whichever occurs first).

How do I pair my Bluetooth phone to my vehicle?

Pairing procedures for each of the Nissan-recommended phones can be found by entering your vehicle and device information in Device Compatibility.

Can I connect multiple Bluetooth devices to my vehicle?

The system supports up to five different phones. However, only one phone can be used at a time. If you try to add a sixth phone, the system will request you delete one phone.

How do I change the name of a paired phone?

You must edit the name of the phone before you pair it with the system. Please check your phone owner’s manual for instructions on how to change your phone’s Bluetooth ID.
