Cannot access manage the telephone call drop down list

Post by KennyW »

Hi All

I have accidentally activated the privacy mode and so can't hear any calls.

How do I deactivated this ?

Form the bluetooth telephone there are 3 options:

Bluetooth configuration
Call
Manage the telephone call

I cannot access the 3rd option.

Any ideas please.

I'm not sure I understand this - there's a 'mute' function to prevent the other caller from hearing you. On some units the 'secret' mode as it was referred to in the handbook is only available whilst on a call Kenny.

Thanks Marc,

After reading a bit more I managed to grasp this but when I attempted to 'fix' the issue.

I phoned the wife and accessed the secret mode but it said activate secret mode !! but I still couldn't speak to the wife. Also the call is cut off after a couple of seconds !!

Blue tooth connection fine paired etc but muted.

Does activating this mode mute all calls received on the bluetooth hands set ?

or is my bluetooth system dying .

You may need to unpair the phone from both the head unit and the mobile and delete the phone from the head unit after that.

They can get a bit glitchy after a while by all accounts. I think you have the RD4 with separate hands free kit, so it is the nomad unit that is handling the Bluetooth functions and passing this onto the RD4 unit.

See how it goes after recreating the phone connections.

Thanks Marc,

I removed both phones on the list last night and added my wife's new i phone which eventually connected and is working.

My phone has just been updated last night so will give it a go today.

I don't think there is anything wrong with the blue tooth, I think it's the electronics.
Memories from work ie any problems with a laptop desk top computer etc in work ,the IT dept first suggestion is switch it off and switch it on after 30 seconds it. Typical electronic glitch!!!!!!!!!!

I thought my unit was RD 45 unit.

Will let you what happens

Hi Kenny, no, you have the standard RD4, plus the independent Telematic unit (for emergency call and geo-location in an accident / Airbag triggering), and you have the hands-free module fitted for telephony - which handles the Bluetooth calls. The RD45 came a little later with built in Bluetooth. SO the Nomad or Hands-free unit handles the calls and passes the data to the Multifunction Screen.

Thanks for the reply Marc,

Okay all working now haven't got a clue why it went off but simply removed all phones and added them back.

Sometimes things can just glitch. Clearing down the items that have failed can clear the glitch. A classic example was Windows 95. The first fix (for most problems) was to power cycle the PC (clearing any glitches).
