Stream music with your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone

To use any of the phone features for SYNC—such as streaming music, making a call, receiving a text message, or using SYNC Services—you must first connect, or "pair," your Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone. Pairing is what allows Bluetooth devices to communicate securely with each other. Learn more about pairing your phone.
