Bluetooth

9.1  Bluetooth Modes

Bluetooth is a short-rangewireless communications technology. Devices with Bluetooth capabilities can exchange information over a distance of about eight meters (26 feet) without requiring a physical connection.

Bluetooth on your phone operates in three different modes:

On. Bluetooth is turned on. Your phone can detect otherBluetooth-enableddevices, but not vice versa.

Visible. Bluetooth is turned on, and all otherBluetooth-enableddevices can detect your phone.

Off. Bluetooth is turned off. In this mode, you can neither send nor receive information using Bluetooth.

Note Turn off Bluetooth when not in use to conserve battery power, or in places where using a wireless device is prohibited, such as on board an aircraft and in hospitals.

Supported Profiles

Your phone supports the following Bluetooth profiles:

GAP (generic access profile)

AVRCP (audio/video remote control profile)

SPP (serial port profile)

HID (human interface device profile)

OPP (object push profile)

BPP (basic printing profile)

GOEP (generic object exchange profile)

FTP (file transfer profile)

ActiveSync-Over-Bluetooth(legacy application via SPP)

PAN (personal area networking profile)

HSP (headset profile)

PBAP (phone book access profile)

HFP (handsfree profile)

DUN (dialup network profile)

A2DP (advanced audio distribution profile)

SAP (SIM access profile – server)

L2CAP

RFCOMM

2A2DP (2 concurrent A2DP stream)

BIP (basic image push)

To turn Bluetooth on and make your phone visible

1.Tap Start > Settings > Communicationsand then tap Bluetooth.

Tip You can also tap Start > Settings > All Settings > Bluetooth.

2.When prompted to turn on Bluetooth, tap Yes.

5.Tap Done. Theicon then appears in the title bar to indicate that the phone is in visible mode.

Tip To easily switch Bluetooth off or back on, tapStart > Settings > Communications to open the Comm Manager and then tap Bluetooth’s OFF/ON slider.

Your phone remembers whether visible mode was previously enabled or disabled. If you did not disable visible mode, switching Bluetooth on in the Comm Manager also puts your phone in visible mode automatically. For more information about using the Comm Manager, see Chapter 13.

106  Bluetooth

9.2  Bluetooth Partnerships

A Bluetooth partnership is a relationship that you create between your phone and another Bluetooth-enableddevice in order to exchange information in a secure manner.

To create a Bluetooth partnership

3.Tap a Bluetooth device to connect with.

4.Specify a passcode, which can be 1 up to 16 characters, to establish a secure connection, and then tap OK.

Note Your phone uses Bluetooth 2.1 with the Secure Simple Pairing feature. If the other Bluetooth device you are pairing with also supports the same feature, the passcode will be automatically created and displayed on both devices. Both you and other party simply need to verify that the passcode is the same and tapYes to establish the partnership.

5.After the receiving party accepts the partnership, the Bluetooth device name is shown on the screen, including all Bluetooth services that you can use with it. Select the check boxes of the Bluetooth services you want to use, and then tap Done.

6.If you selected to use the Bluetooth Serial Port service of the paired device, select a local serial port to assign for the paired device, and then tap Continue.

The connected Bluetooth device now appears in the Devices tab ().

Tip TapProperties to change the paired device name. TapMenu > Update to update the list of services that you can use with the paired device.

Creating a Bluetooth partnership between two devices is a one-timeprocess. Once a partnership is created, the devices can recognize the partnership and exchange information without entering a passcode again.

To accept a Bluetooth partnership

1.Ensure that Bluetooth is turned on and in visible mode.

2.When prompted, enter or accept the passcode (the same passcode from the device requesting the partnership) to establish a secure connection.

3.Tap OK. The paired device now appears in theDevices tab (). You can now exchange information with the paired device.

Tip To delete a Bluetooth partnership, select the device’s name on theDevices tab, then tapMenu > Delete. When prompted to confirm, tapYes.

Navigating on the Road

10.1  Guidelines and Preparation for Using GPS

If you installed a GPS navigation software on your phone, follow these guidelines before and when using your phone for GPS navigation.

When using GPS navigation software in the car, always plot your GPS route before starting to drive. Do not try to configure the GPS navigation software while driving.

The plotted GPS route is only for driving reference. It should not interfere with actual driving behavior.

Do not leave your phone in a vehicle or expose the phone to direct sunlight to avoid overheating the battery, which could pose damage to the phone or risk to the vehicle.

When using the phone inside a vehicle, use the car holder to mount the phone securely in place. Avoid placing the phone in the areas shown in the following diagram:

1Do not place where it will block the driver’s vision.2Do not place where air bags could deploy.

3Do not place anywhere in the vehicle without securing the phone in the holder.

Use the GPS system cautiously. Users shall be liable for any damages resulting from negligent operation of the system.

The GPS signal cannot pass through solid non-transparentobjects. Signal reception may be affected by obstructions such ashigh-risebuildings, tunnels, bridges, forests, weather (rainy or cloudy days), etc. If the vehicle’s visor contains metal, it will be difficult for the GPS signal to pass through.

Other nearby wireless communication products (such as mobile phones or radar-detectingdevices) may interfere with the satellite signal, resulting in unstable signal reception.

The Global Positioning System (GPS) is built and operated by the US Defense Department. The Department is responsible for the accuracy and maintenance of the system. Any changes that the Department makes may affect the accuracy and function of the GPS system.

112  Navigating on the Road

10.2 Downloading Location Data via QuickGPS

Before using the phone for GPS navigation, open QuickGPS to download ephemeris data (current satellite position and timing information). QuickGPS significantly speeds up the time for determining your GPS position. QuickGPS downloads ephemeris data from web servers, instead of from satellites, using your phone’s Internet connection viaWi-Fi,ActiveSync or a data connection.

To open QuickGPS

Tap Start > All Applications > QuickGPS.

To download GPS data

Tap Download on the QuickGPS screen.

On the screen, initially, you will see the Valid time of the downloaded data. As time passes, the remaining days and hours of validity will be shown.

To speed up GPS positioning, download the latest ephemeris data when the validity of the data expires.

Changing the download options

To configure download options, tap Menu > Options and choose from available options:

Remind me when data expires.

Display a message when ephemeris data expires.

Auto download when data expires.

Automatically download ephemeris data when it expires.

Auto download when connected to PC via ActiveSync.

Automatically download ephemeris data when it is connected to your computer via ActiveSync. Your computer must be connected to the Internet to download ephemeris data.

Exit QuickGPS after downloading.

Close QuickGPS after satellite data is downloaded.
