Pre Journal: Acura HFL Working

Like California, Connecticut has a hands free driving law, and so today I had a chance to pair up my new Palm Pre with my Acura TSX. The good news is that the Acura is an amazing accessory for the Pre!

I was able to quickly pair up the Pre with the Acura's Handsfree Link (HFL) and was able to make phone calls and stream music stored on the device to the car's radio system. It was pretty easy to do.

If you are not sure how to pair up your new Pre with your Acura, just follow the directions in the owner's manual, and you'll be up and running in no time at all. Just make sure you aren't driving the car while you are trying to pair up the phone!

Alan,

Thanks for the above. Any issues? My issue is that every 4th time my Pre pairs, it won't transfer audio until I reset the bluetooth on my phone. Do you have these issues?

I am having some issues with the call end button and the quality of music being streamed to the factory installed radio. Take a look at this SPF post:

The pairing issue has also been reported to Palm. If you read the leaked Palm webOS 1.2 update specs, it looks like Palm has a fix in the works and that the update is about ready to roll out in the near future. I don't have a firm date for when that update will go live.
