2013 Subaru BRZ: Insider Bluetooth Tip

October 2, 2012


Warning: This blog entry will not be relevant to you unless (1) you buy a 2013 Subaru BRZ and (2) you and your significant other have more than five smartphones or tablets between you.

As you might imagine, it doesn't take long for our staff to max out the number of allowable paired Bluetooth devices in most of our test vehicles. Five is a typical limit, and that's what it is in our BRZ.

So I needed to delete a device before I could pair my phone, but it's not immediately obvious how you're to do that in the BRZ.

First, you need to find your way to the Bluetooth menu and the paired device list.


But when you get there, you'll note that the Delete "button" is grayed out and nonfunctional. To make it functional, you need to press and hold the entry for the phone/tablet you want to delete, and then, the Delete button becomes active.


Maybe that procedure would have been clearly spelled out had I bothered to RTM, but even if it is, it's an odd way of deleting a device. But now I that I've done it once, I'll remember it for next time -- just as a real BRZ owner would.
