My phone is stock, not rooted and yes I've tried that. It pairs and on my phone it shows that its connected for voice and media...then the voice part disappears after a minute or so and it just shows that its connected to media. But it still never plays music through the BT either. When I hit the call button, the radio acts like its gonna download the phonebook but then nothing happens. It's very frustrating, especially when I read about other people having no issues. Maybe there is a difference between NAV and no NAV.
I just bought a 2.0T WITHOUT NAV and am having problems with my HTC Droid Incredible that are similar to those reported by other users on this forum. The phone pairs Ok, and acts like it is downloading the phonebook but after a few seconds it stops and there are no phonebook entries available through the Hyundai Bluetooth interface. Even worse, I can't add entries by voice through the Sonata bluetooth. The Sonata prompts for all the entry info and says that it has been stored, but there are no phonebook entries available when I finish. The only thing the HTC will do is answer incoming calls and manually voice-dial outgoing calls when I speak the phone number - Not an acceptable solution. I went through the phonebook entry exercise with a cheap Samsung (non "smart" phone) and the Sonata bluetooth interface stored phonebook entries for this phone with no problem, and I could dial by saying the Voicetag name. The Google Navigation APP that gives turn-by-turn directions does not function over Bluetooth with this phone either. (I haven't tried using an audio cable, but that is definitely not an elegant solution.)
The problem is definitely with the HTC Incredible. Mine was purchased through Verizon before I bought the Sonata and they (Verizon and HTC) are providing absolutely no no help in resolving the problem. The Verizon sales rep checked the Hyundai web site and said the phone was NOT on the Hyundai compatibility list. HTC is virtually the only well-known brand that is NOT on Hyundai's list. (I suppose Verizon's solution is to keep the phone and look for a compatible car!)
My conclusion is that the problem is primarily with HTC. There are MANY posts on the internet about the HTC Incredible and EVO running Android 2.2 having an "incomplete Bluetooth stack," which severely limits functionality of these phones on many cars (including Hyundai, Toyota, Mercedes, Lexus, and others). The fact that some Sonata owners with NAV systems are having better luck offers hope that there may be some hope for getting this phone to work. As far as HTC and Verizon are concerned, let the buyer beware, and don't expect any technical support with this problem. Verizon would not even consider exchanging the phone for one that works and breaking a two-year contract is not an option for me.
Has anyone without built-in Navigation found a solution to this problem that does not involve rooting the phone?
