Hi all

Newbie here.

I am an owner of a 2010 RR HSE (facelifted) and I just purchased a new (to me) 2015 RR Sport SVR.

The 2010 RR is now being used by my wife and we both love the car and do not want to sell it. There is however the issue of technology. The factory bluetooth tech on these cars are out of date and are not usable for music. I bought a Bovee1000 device to plug into the 30 pin ipod cable to create a bluetooth environment which worked great for streaming music from her iphone, however it is interrupted when calls come in.

Basically, I am looking perhaps to upgrade the infortainment system in this car to a more "modern" one. Retrofit a newer LR part or otherwise and I would greatly appreciate any advice or words of wisdom from any members who have done this.

Many thanks in advance and seasons' greetings to all.

JB

Newer Range Rover tech is not going to be compatible with an 8 year old rig. I am not sure why you would not want music muted when she receives a call. Pretty much every ICE system does that.

That's not the issue, muting is fine, but she can't actually take the call on the Bluetooth environment created by the Bovee1000. It's only for music and can't be used for calls, etc....

Only the built-in car Bluetooth can be used for calls.... but that system can't play/stream music, if that makes any sense.

So whichever way we try to set things up, she is unable to have both. It's either you link up to the car built-in Bluetooth and can make and receive calls but can't play music....or you latch on to the Bovee100 Bluetooth and enjoy streaming your music but CANNOT send and receive phonecalls.

Trying to work around these issues.

You need to pair your phone with both the BOVEE and the Range Rover. Most Android and iPhones will allow you to pair both a Bluetooth music streaming device and a Bluetooth phone simultaneously. If both the car and the BOVEE are paired properly, the BOVEE will mute the music and car will handle the handle the phone call when a call comes in. No real workaround needed. Just make sure you set up your phone to pair with both devices, and you should be got to go.

I have the same vehicle as you and agree with the previous comment. You have to pair with both and they should pair automatically each time you get in. I listen to music exclusively though the bovee, and when someone calls, it automatically switches to the built in Bluetooth and stops the music. Music resumes in the same spot when the call ends.

That’s how my 2010 operates. No complaints.

Right, tried it and it did the trick.

Thanks all! Hope it stays that way and doesn't act up and keep shifting from one to the other. Let's see.

I have the same setup as you guys. I use an iPhone and when I get a call the music does not stop when I answer. Instead when I pick up the music kind of starts playing in the background muffled. Do you guys experience this? Any ideas how to fix it? Thanks

Mine will occasionally do something like that, but I am able to stop the music by just pausing it. Usually it happens if I’ve been on a while and the music will start for some reason. It has not done it immediately answering a phone call though. Do you answer with your phone or with the cars buttons? I’ve noticed that sometimes if I answer with the phone, the call doesn’t go through the speakers.
