Buick LaCrosse: Pairing - Bluetooth (Voice Recognition) - Phone - Infotainment System - Buick LaCrosse Owners ManualBuick LaCrosse: Pairing

A Bluetooth-enabled cell phone must be paired to the Bluetooth system and then connected to the vehicle before it can be used. See your cell phone manufacturer's user guide for Bluetooth functions before pairing the cell phone. If a Bluetooth phone is not connected, calls will be made using OnStar Hands-Free Calling, if available. See OnStar Overview for more information.

Pairing Information

• A Bluetooth phone with MP3 capability cannot be paired to the vehicle as a phone and an MP3 player at the same time.

• Up to five cell phones can be paired to the Bluetooth system.

• The pairing process is disabled when the vehicle is moving.

• Pairing only needs to be completed once, unless the pairing information on the cell phone changes or the cell phone is deleted from the system.

• Only one paired cell phone can be connected to the Bluetooth system at a time.

• If multiple paired cell phones are within range of the system, the system connects to the first available paired cell phone in the order that they were first paired to the system. To link to a different paired phone, see “Linking to a Different Phone” later in this section.
