Question Used 2013 Elantra Limited w/Navigation Stereo: Stumped on how you change Bluetooth

Greetings!

I unfortunately lost my 2015 Elantra SE due to icy roads. I have replaced it with a very nice 2013 Elantra Limited. Unlike my Elantra, this one has a bigger screen (Example of the unit: https://www.carpartswarehouse.com/bu...All%20Products ) .

Whenever I hit the telephone button in the upper right, the screen says "Conecting to [Former Owner's First and Last Name]'s Phone." After five seconds or so it will return to the FM menu. The manual I got with the car covers only the base model radio (such as what my 2015 had). I cannot for the life of me find the "PHONE" button anywhere in the touch-screen menus. I went to the "Help" menu and it tells me to locate this "PHONE" button but I simply do not see it. Does anyone with experience in this car know where I can set up the Bluetooth??

I am at a loss as to what to do short of spending money at the dealer. I know that the old owner did have it set up to run Bluetooth. I guess this older model with the Nav/deluxe radio is too sophisticated for me...

UPDATE: During a lunch break I went out to the car and resolved this issue. For those reading this board in the future, here is what I did:


1. On the steering wheel is a GREEN colored telephone. I compressed this button (merely tapping it tried to pull the old owners phone).


2. After a good 7-10 seconds holding that GREEN telephone button down the Display pulled up the screen stating there is no valid phone in proximity, and then allowing me to access a previously unseen screen dealing with phone connections.


3. I then went to "CONNECTIONS" and hit "Add to." I followed the prompts to add my phone to the vehicle. (On iPhone you go to Bluetooth, wait for a device named "Handsfree" or "ELANTRA" (changed to ELANTRA after a few seconds, but if you see Handsfree, it will work to connect too). I entered in the code on the screen, which for all four Elantras I have driven is "0 0 0 0"


4. I went back to the screen before CONNECTIONS ( but I did NOT go all the way back to the FM/AM/XM default screen) and I went to a list of devices. I deleted the old owner's phone.




Your display will now say something like


"Phone: [Phone Name]"
"File: Phone music"


It was playing the music I had going from Spotify earlier in the day, so it was able to pull as the 2015-2017 Elantras have done for me. I placed a call on the phone and a much larger screen popped up showing the call information. The call quality was normal.


Hopefully this helps, especially as more of us wind up in gently used 2011-2015 gen Elantras.

Just a heads up - I get a malware warning for that page you linked.
