    Did a search with no answers that apply. I have a car with the capability and have never downloaded the phonebook. My family (all Iphone users) are laughing at me.

    My Honda Accord has this same capability and the Honda site says my S3 (and prior Bionic) was compatible to transfer phone book to car but I was never successful. That being said the procedure is to first pair ypur phone with the car by bluetooth then on my Honda I went into the settings and clicked on "import Address Book and then my phone would show a notification which was asking to allow the connection and gave me a4 digit code to putt in. I then put in the code and then the phone book was supposed to be transferred but in my case I then got a failure message.

    What kind of car is it, as some have sd slots to store such things and you will need to put one in. If you get no joy here I would suggest that there will be a forum for your particular car where the question will have already been asked.

    I had no problem with my car. I just can't sync it with facebook contacts synced because I can hide them from my contact list in Android, but not in my car. Kind of annoying, but not too bad.

    BTW (I learned the hard way that doing it this way IS important. You dont want to do what I did and accidentally call someone you haven't talked to in YEARS)
