Trouble Pairing Your BlackBerry With Your Land Rover, Volvo, or Jaguar?

Well if you own one of these cars I will say right off the bat that I envy you. Living in Manhattan leaves me without a car let alone a luxury car =). With that said, I just found an interesting new free application by RIM that will help you pair your BlackBerry with the following cars:

  • Land Rover LR2 (Europe and North America)
  • Volvo S80 and V70 (Europe only)
  • Jaguar XK (Europe and North America)

If you are having trouble pairing one of the cars listed above with your BlackBerry then head on over to this page and download the Bluetooth Pairing Helper application from RIM. You just follow the instructions on this KnowledgeBase article to get the connection working. I am not sure if this application is useful for anything else but if you are having Bluetooth pairing problems with your car this may be a solution.

  1. Umm…can I pair it with my Chevy Nova?

  2. My guess is that it would take an expensive overhaul of the car to make that work. You might want to try something like this:

    :)

  3. I just paired my BB8800 wioth LR 2 Landrover. All seems to work excpet when I make a call, I do not hear the ringing tone at other end. Same with GPS, I do not hear the voice commands from the cars speakers. Seems like the car blocks out any sound even from the BB device.
    Anyone know how toi fix this ?

  4. Sorry Kshah I wish I could afford a LR2 to have some hands on experience to share.

  5. Won’t install on a 7290 – claims it needs 4.2 handheld software :(

    Still stuck with no bluetooth in my new LR2 :(

  6. David,
    Sorry to hear that it does not work on your 7290. RIM did not publish an OS requirement so I assumed it was for all Bluetooth enabled blackberry’s. I guess that means the 7100 will not work?

  7. Thanks, would have been nice if RIM could have made it work with all versions, or publish that it doesn’t !

    It appears that anything that doesn’t have the 4.2 handheld software available won’t work

  8. You can only download the application if you have Internet Explorer.

    This seems ironic given that some people have a Blackberry over a Windows mobile device because they don’t want to use a Microsoft product!
