I'm new to Honda with my 2011 Odyssey EX-L w/ Navi. I've been trying to get my phone working with the HandsFreeLink Bluetooth system and am having troubles.

My wife and I have different phones (and brand). Both are listed explicitly as "compatible" on Honda's HFL website. My wife's phone seems to work just fine, no problem. My phone, however, is not.

I can pair my phone with the HFL with no problems at all. Once paired, the system works with my phone with no problems. However, once my phone is unlinked to HFL (car turned off, for instance), then I can no longer get the system to link with it again. My phone thinks it gets linked just fine on all future attempts, but the car doesn't display it as linked.

I can delete the pairing, and retry, and the same thing happens. The pairing works flawlessly. The system works fine with the phone from then on until the two are unlinked. Once unlinked, I can't get the system to link again, even though the phone indicates that it is.

Before I head to the dealer, was wondering if anyone else has encountered this and if they ever found a resolution.

Thanks for any help.

Same thing here. What phone do you use? We are thinking about taking it to the dealership tomorrow. I don't want the car back until it is fixed. I have an EVO and a blackberry curve 9300. I have had the Honda phone man spend an hour on it and I had the sprint guy spend an hour and a half on it. I am afraid it is something with the handsfreelink. Let me know if you figure something out.

Same for me. I have an EVO and the Dealer was no help. Even the "phone Man" for Honda sat with me for over an hour and was stumped. The Honda handsfreelink phone number was given to me. The lady tried to walk me through it, but couldn't. She said that it might be the version of the software on the phone??? Since EVO is always being updated Honda didn't try it out with the newer version???

Just for discussion - wife's iPhone works perfectly; my BB prompts me to accept after each reset (leaving the vehicle), but once i accept the link up, no problems.
