Default problem with handsfree on new Accord

INCOMING CALLS don't work - the answer function does not respond.

----

OK, my *car* is new 2013, but my phone is antique (about three years
old, I think), an LG VX8360. I think - no model number on the phone
itself! I have the original instruction book, I think.

http://www.handsfreelink.com/hondana/index.php

It is not listed as "compatible" on this site.

http://www.handsfreelink.com/hondana...s&model=Accord
Sedan&years=2013&vehicle_id=811&manufacturer=105&c arrier=&searchtype=manufacturer&archive=&start=0


(the phone model *is* listed as compatible for the 2011 CRZ!)


When I bought the car, the sales rep helped me pair the phone, we
tried an outgoing call, and that worked.

I assumed I was home free. Of course it hasn't worked out that way.

INCOMING CALLS don't work - the answer function does not respond.

(I think it might work if I press Answer on the phone, haven't tried
that yet)

Any other suggestions?

Maybe a secret setting on the phone? My old LG had some kind of
auto-answer setting (whatever it did), but I can't even find that on
the new one.

Any place to feedback to Verizon, LG, or Honda about such issues?

--

OK so I'm a primitive, this is the first time I've tried to make this
work with a cell phone and a car!

Thanks,

J.

ps - as to the car itself, I'm really liking it, a lot smoother than
the previous model.

Aha, I finally found the Tools/Call Settings/Auto Answer w Handsfree.

I don't really want auto-answer, but maybe it will help?

Also found this site to ask Honda:

Will try ASAP, tomorrow.

Unless you're doing this so a *passenger" can answer, give it up: you'll
never really be answering a phone and driving at the same time -- you'll
either be driving, or answering the phone and not really driving at all
(just going through the motions of driving, attention all elsewhere).

HTH. Cheers, -- tlvp

There IS something about being on a phone which is just different than
having a conversation with a passenger or listening to the radio. I
figure that maybe it has something to do with a passenger knowing when
you need to concentrate on driving and they shut up while a caller
just keeps talking and your attention is divided.

I sure try not to use the phone when I'm driving but it is hard to
just ignore calls.

Whether hands-free or not, there are several studies that show talking on
the phone while driving is the same as driving while drunk

To a large extent it depends on the traffic situation. Driving on busy
street is quite different from driving in a calm freway traffic. Leaving
decent distance after a car, instead of tailgating, is also a major
factor. Many accidentt are caused by taigaters.

If my phone rings while I'm driving, I will either hand the phone to my
wife or pull over to the side of the road and stop. Since I hit
retirement age, I don't get very many phone calls on my mobile phone!

While I was working I would pull over to the right side with blinkers on
and either answer my phone or, my page.

One evening, I was driving home from the roller skating, my pager went
off just as I turned onto the On-Ramp. If that wasn't enough, a police
patrol car pulled up behind me at the bottom of the on-ramp and wanted
to know if I had a problem. Thanks officer, I now have two problems. <sigh>

Did the officer let you go when you mentioned you were talking to your
travel agent? I hear that sometimes works.

I'd assumed he had lost his buggy whip and was looking for a switch

At least with the hands-free it's legal.

I agree with all the negatives, but sometimes you want to receive or
make a quick call when you're running late, that sort of thing.
