HOW TO: Pair iPhone Bluetooth to Volkswagen (all models)

Hi, I’m Tannis Bachman and I’m here at Bachman
Volkswagen with Drew and he’s going to show you how to hook up the iPhone Bluetooth in
the 2013 Passat. Bluetooth is really easy to hook up in the 2013 Volkswagen models.
There’s a few variations, but with the Passat, this should be a pretty good example of how
to do it. The first thing you want to do is, you have to make sure you do this service
within the first three minutes of starting your car. So, we’ll go ahead and take out
the iPhone. We’re going to open up your phone and go to the Settings menu. There’s going
to be a location for Bluetooth, just make sure your Bluetooth is on. Once we go into
that we’re going to turn the car on or into auxiliary mode. So now your phone is going
to be searching for the Bluetooth device. When it comes up it’s going to come up as
VW Phone. Now all you do to hook it up is on your phone press VW Phone, and it’s going
to ask you to Pair it on there. You’re also going to get on your display something that
says, Connect to Your iPhone. All you have to do is press Pair on your phone and simultaneously
press the Ok button to connect with the phone. It’s going to make sure that’s the correct
passcode, it’s 931447 in this example. You press Ok one more time and now your phone
is connected. Now what it’s going to do is it’s actually going to download your phonebook,
it’s going to download your contacts, and it’s going to download all of your music as
well. So, that’s it. All you have to do to download your phone is a few easy steps. If
you have any questions feel free to ask me or any other Volkswagen representatives and
we’ll be happy to help you.
