Are you struggling to connect your phone to your Honda CR-V via Bluetooth? Look no further! In this article, we will guide you through the process step-by-step to ensure a successful pairing. Whether you own a CR-V with or without navigation, the setup process is the same. So, let’s dive in!

Step 1: Accessory Position
To begin, turn the key in the ignition one click forward to activate the accessory position. You will notice that the display on the radio turns on. For the purpose of this demonstration, we will assume you have the radio turned on as well.

Step 2: Prepare Your Phone
Before you can connect your phone to the vehicle, you need to make sure it is ready to pair. In this example, we will be using an iPhone 4s. Start by accessing the settings menu on your phone. From the home screen, navigate to settings and tap on Bluetooth to open the Bluetooth menu. The process is similar for other phone brands, but you may need to search for the Bluetooth menu on your specific device. Once you access the Bluetooth menu, your phone will automatically enter discoverable mode. If you have a different phone, you may need to manually enable discoverable mode. Now that your phone is ready, let’s move on to the next step.

Step 3: Add a New Phone
In your Honda CR-V, locate the phone button on the bottom left corner of the radio. Press the button to enter the phone menu. You will receive a confirmation prompt asking if you want to add a new phone. Select “Yes” using the rotary knob on the dashboard. The OK button in the center of the rotary knob will allow you to confirm your selection. The system will then prompt you to turn on your phone’s Bluetooth setting and put it in discoverable mode. Since we have already done this, select “OK” to proceed.

Step 4: Pair Your Phone
The pairing process requires operation of both the Bluetooth system in the car and on your phone. The Honda CR-V is equipped with voice prompts that will guide you through the process. While it searches for your phone, you can adjust the volume of the voice prompt. Keep in mind that the voice prompts may vary depending on the model year of your CR-V. Once the system finds your phone, it will display the name of your phone on the screen. If your phone has a name assigned to it, that name will appear. Otherwise, it will display the make and model number of your phone. Select your phone from the list and press “OK.” The system will now prompt you to enter a pairing code. Honda defaults to four zeros (0000) as the pairing code. Go to your phone’s Bluetooth settings and enter the pairing code. Once you’ve entered the code, press the “Pair” button on your phone. The system will confirm that the phone has been connected successfully.

Step 5: Explore Phone Options
Congratulations! You have successfully paired your phone with your Honda CR-V. Now, let’s explore the phone options you can access through the radio. To access the options, press the phone button on the bottom left of the radio. The display will show various options, such as speed dial, call history, and phonebook. If you want to access your phonebook, select “Phonebook” and use the rotary knob to choose the desired letter of the contact’s name. For example, if you want to call your mother, select the letter “M” and scroll down to find her contact. You can continue scrolling through the phonebook by selecting additional letters. To exit the menu, simply press the phone button again, and you will return to the main driving display.

In conclusion, pairing your phone with your Honda CR-V is a straightforward process.
