Automatic Bluetooth Playback

Hey Searched the forum but couldn't find an answer for this:

Everytime I start my car I have to pull the voice activation button and say "bluetooth Audio" then then wait for the car to say "no bluetooth is available I will try to connect one" then I wait as my phone connects and then I have to either skip ahead a track or do the voice thing and say "play". If i shut the thing off, say to go into a store I have to go thru all that again.

My first 2 days with the car I enjoyed the voice thing but now its just plain annoying. Can I get sync to play thru bluetooth without going thru all that.

My Roomates car (Toyota) does it flawlessly she just hits play on her steering wheel.

My car is an SE with sync and no MFT. Phone is a samsung Galaxy 2, but is the same with my iphone 3gs.


Thanks for any help

I've never been able to get it to play properly through Bluetooth. If you have a USB port in yours (mine does, but might be MFT related) your best bet is to load a USB flash drive with your music and run it through that.

Ive never tried a flash drive, I usually charge my phone with my usb hub. Playing the phone through the USB has never worked well for me. I cant understand why it doesnt automatically connect. Even when I want to call someone I have to prompt sync to connect to the phone.
