Syncing Contacts to F30?

Can't get my iphone 5 contacts synced over to my car! I've tried everything, anyone have a good step by step for this?

Thanks

That happened to me at first. I just "forgot" the phone and reconnected the Bluetooth using the pin and stuff. It worked then. Not sure if you've tried this yet.

Are you connected via BT?
If not, go to the settings and connect ur phone using a new PIN.

Yep, connect via bluetooth and it should happen "automatically".

Contacts dont stay synced with the car... Everytime you get in, it reloads them.
So if you're talking about having them in the car at all times, it's impossible (unless you wanna copy them 1 by 1)

If your phone is connected via BT, then the contacts will come. Not instantaneous tho..

Ok, I use my bluetooth everytime I'm in car but still isn't syncing my contacts. I will try reconnecting with a new pin.

Thanks!

There is an option to sync last calls, phone book etc. just right click in the settings when your phone is highlighted or click configure phone. Try checking the bluetooth settings o your phone. I finally got text messages to show up.
