BlueConnect works with other systems within the car to provide seamless integration. When you receive a call, BlueConnect will mute the stereo and display "CALL" on the radio's screen and then un-mute the sound system when the call concludes. You can even transfer a call back to your cell phone if you arrive at your destination and wish to continue the conversation.
Accessing virtually all of BlueConnect's features is done by voice command. But you don't have to worry about memorizing a list of commands, BlueConnect will remind you about which options are available if you seem to be unsure of what to say next.
After pairing your phone to the system for the first time, BlueConnect can automatically* pair with the same phone each time you enter your car and turn it on. BlueConnect can remember up to seven different previously connected phones and automatically connect to the phone that is the highest priority based on your preferences.
BlueConnect's advanced voice recognition isn't limited to just English. Both North American Spanish and Canadian French languages are also fully supported. Switching between languages couldn't be easier. For example, simply say "Espanol" and BlueConnect will ask you in both English and Spanish if you would like to change the language to Spanish. That's it.
BlueConnect is currently available as a genuine accessory for 2011 Outback and Legacy vehicles that do not have a standard Bluetooth hands-free calling system. Outback and Legacy models equipped with the Harman Kardon audio package and/or navigation are equipped from the factory with the Type 1 Bluetooth system. BlueConnect is also available as a genuine accessory on specific Impreza, Forester, and Tribeca models.
