How to Connect Your AnyTone to a Bluetooth Car Stereo
Hi, everyone. This is Cody from BridgeCom Systems, and today I'm going to be showing you how to connect your AnyTone 878PLUS with Bluetooth to your car stereo.
So if you have a car with Bluetooth compatible stereo, this is a real simple process, pretty easy to do. It should work with most cars. In this case, we're using it, it's a Ford Taurus. It's got the Ford, I believe it's a SYNC system, is what they call it. So this should be a very similar process no matter what car you have, but especially on a Ford. It's going to work very similar to this. So let's get right into it.
Okay, so now we're here at the car. So the first step is going to be, turn on your ignition. So we're going to turn this on to the second position there. And then on the car, I'm going to switch on the stereo. And we're going to press menu, and then we're going to go to the SYNC-Media, and then scroll down until we see system settings. Click OK, and then Bluetooth devices. We want to go ahead and click on Bluetooth devices, and then add a Bluetooth device.
Press okay to begin pairing a device.
So now what I'm going to do before we can do that, go over to the radio, click menu, go up to Bluetooth. Make sure Bluetooth is in fact turned on, which it is, then go down to Bluetooth pairing and click seek. And I'm going to click this okay button on the car first, and then I'm going to click-
Search for SYNC on your device and enter the pin provided by SYNC.
So we can see it here. So if we try to connect to this, it's not actually going to let us because we don't have the pin yet. So we're going to go down, back out to the Bluetooth pairing menu, and then go down, back out one more to Bluetooth. And we're going to go down to Bluetooth pin code. Select that. So now we can enter our pin.
Here we go. So we've got the pin code in here, press confirm, and now we're connected. So let's try it out.
[crosstalk] For your safety please stay alert to changing road conditions and use SYNC's voice-activated features while your vehicle is in motion.
Here we go. So we got it connected up. It shows up on the car, we've got it in the radio. So we're all ready to talk. We can see the Bluetooth button up here is actually blue now. So let's give it a shot.
Hi Guys, this is Daniel NØREY with BridgeCom Systems, here to do a little demonstration of the AnyTone AT-D878 plus with Bluetooth.
So here I've got my AnyTone 878 PLUS right here on the console with my DV Mega hotspot. The radio is Bluetooth to my push-to-talk button, up here on the steering wheel. And then the radio is also Bluetooth to my car stereo, and the car audio and microphone. So I can talk virtually hands-free just using my steering wheel hand to actuate the button. So I'll give it a little test here.
Radio Service test, NØREY. And then give it a second to come back.
Radio Service test, NØREY.
So there, you heard the transmission just straight through the pair right there. And we're just using the pair for demonstration purposes. But as you can see, I was able to talk with my transmission, just using the push-to-talk button.
This is going to be really helpful for convenience purposes when using your radio on the road and also for legal and safety purposes because in some states you're not allowed to talk with a radio or phone in your hand. And it also eliminates you having to be distracted taking a radio or a microphone up to your face to talk.
So this is just a great overall feature for this radio, and we really think you're going to enjoy it. So if you'd like to get one of these, please check the link in the description below this video.
Thanks guys, 73.
