ST225 handfree connect with iPhone

Postby [email protected] » Wed Jan 14, 2015 2:23 pm

Hi guys, I can get my iPhone6 to connect with the Sony audio system in my 2011 ST but the radio does not read the phone data and I cannot make or receive calls through the entertainment system. Is this a phone and radio incompatibility issue or is the problem that I am **** and don't know how to do it?

Any help will be appreciated

I would also like to know how do you audio stream?
Sometimes I tuck my knees into my chest and lean forward. That's just how I roll!!!

TDW....so you can make and receive phone calls from your radio? Do you see your phonebook and recent call list on your radio once synced?

Apparently you can stream audio from your phone but you have to have your music stored on the phone and not on the iCloud. There is a setting on your iPhone where you switch the iCloud setting off because they say with the connect to iCloud setting on, the music on your phone is not in the bluetooth 'domain' anymore.
