    I've read a few posts about the amazing deficiencies of Tattoo's bluetooth connections

    I've got a built in car bluetooth kit - I forget the name, but it's one of the more expensive ones that comes built in with company cars

    My Tattoo refuses to pair and connect :(

    Before I give up, I wanted to know if I 'root', will this help?
    I say 'root', I know what it's about, but haven't looked into what is needed to do it and how easy it is and what disadvantages, if any it has

    Any replies about this would be great

    I can't do without the bluetooth usage on my car, if I can't get working, then I'll just have to sell - which I don't want to...!

    Thanks


    OM

    there might be something that you have to do first on your in-car bluetooth before trying to pair with your bluetooth phone. It would be good if you was able to tell me the name of your car bluetooth.

    if your able to get into the settings of the device you might be able to remove some phones from your in car kit device. because your in car device may only let you connect so many devices. I have got a head set that connects to my tattoo and first of all i had to hold the button for 10 seconds until a light came on constant and then active my bluetooth and search for devices then i connected to my headset, i dont know if you device is similar.

    it could be. have you got the manual for you in car kit. Because i know there is a compatibility list and htc tattoo might not be compatible. Sorry i couldnt help you on this.
