Iphone 5 connect to Nav

Has anyone succesfully paired their Iphone 5 to the Armada Nav ?

I am just about to get the Iphone 5 but have read elsewhere that various car owners have problems connecting as calls get dropped.

My iphone 4 works well just want to be certain before upgrading.

a real easy super quick way is go to a dealer and pair your 5 once you get it. there were a couple folk with the new qx that claimed to have issues with the ifruit working with the usb port, but that has since been squashed.

the new armada has the same BT setup as the new Q so i think you are fine. but again, going to a dealer and connecting will give you the absolute answer.

Thanks for the reply.

I have the 2011 Armada Platinum. It has the "older" BT setup i think. Do you anticipate a problem with this setup. Also is there an update to the BT Setup that the dealership can do ?

thanks

Bluetooth betwixt my iPhone 5 and my '08 seems to work fine for me.

Thats good news.

The problem being reported is that once a call is received the call is dropped and the phone needs to be paired again. It then goes into a loop of the same continual problem.

Much appreciated.

the 2011 armada has the same BT setup as the Q.

i think you are ok, but a good way to find out now it to head to a dealer and test. then, put the rumor to rest...

there may be a minor firmware update but that is dependent on nissan sending such updates to your dealer AND finding a dealer who is competent to do the update. i dont think there is such an update for the nissan armada though...

My iPhone5 works fine with my '10 QX as far as calls are concerned. Unfortunately it still will not download the contacts whereas the '11+ QX will.

So far so good. Works well.

No dropped calls as yet.

Same problem as before with the contacts though.

They download perfectly in wifes Infinity G37 but not on the Armada.
