Bluetooth: Pairing Devices, Calling, and Messaging

The QNX CAR platform supports two-way Bluetooth discovery for device pairing.


The Bluetooth Connectivity control in the Settings app lets you pair the vehicle's Bluetooth system with another Bluetooth device, such as a smartphone. When the device is paired, you can use the Communication screen to access the smartphone's email or text messages, view contact information, and make phone calls.

Note: Bluetooth is not supported on the i.MX6q platform.
