||Notes on the Bluetooth hands-free function
The Z-E2055 uses a modern Bluetooth solution from Sunplus developed for usage in the automotive environment. The module supports the Bluetooth 4.2 profile, which ensures a high compatibility of the ZENEC Z-E2055 and all device relevant Bluetooth functions in combination with most actual smartphone brands and models.
Exceptions for Bluetooth function or profile components that do not seem to run correctly usually originate from provider-specific smartphone firmware (third-party provider).
In order to be sure that a given smartphone is compatible with the relevant BT functions of the target device, it is advisable to test a given device combination in the shop of an authorized retailer before purchase.Additional information:
Some smartphones require a confirmation to allow access to the phone book contact list. The phonebook access confirmation needs to be performed by the user, if necessary.
If you encounter connection problems, always check to see if a newer firmware version is available for your phone and install it. After a smartphone update you should delete the previous device pairing on the device, restart the smartphone and pair it anew.
