    I paired my phone with my car radio and everything is good there.
    BUT, when I dock my phone and turn on bluetooth, the phone turns bluetooth on but does not turn on the discover or the app.
    The phone just sets with bluetooth turned on.
    So to get the bluetooth device to pair with the phone you have to go into the bluetooth settings and tap on the device you want to turn on.
    Any suggestions?

    Yes. The radio is paired to the Bionic. When I put the Bionic in the car dock, the bluetooth turns on but does not see the radio unless you got into settings, wireless networks and actually touch the paired radio to manually connect the bluetooth.

    Its weird, I have a similar situation. I don't have it paired to my car stereo but to my headphones, when I use the cardock, I cant just hit play in my headphones like I used to be able to do, I have to hit play on the phone first then can control the rest thru the headset.

    My prior phone would automatically pair with my Land Rover. My Droid gets paired manually. Then, when I return to the car, I get a notification tune and it says the droid is DISCONNECTING from the car. I have to go in and reconnect by putting in the code.

    Does anyone know how to get them to pair automatically?

    Thanks,

    Rick
