You can import them... I believe you find the contact in the downloaded phonebook, than "import" it to the handsfree link...Phonebook download is a bit weird, since it's done through navigation menus rather than phone menus. So even when it is downloaded, to access it, you go through the navigation menus to make a call using those numbers. For instance, if you press the talk button on the steering wheel for the handfreelink, you can't access the downloaded phone book. You have to access it using the navigation button. There is a separate phonebook in your handfreelink menus that you enter phonenumbers through a voice menu.
Does anyone know how to combine your downloaded phonebook to your car's internal phonebook?
The manual specifies "on models with navigation system" when talking about uploading the phonebook from your phone.It still sounds like you have to have the Nav system to download the entire phone book from your phone. My phone is paired, but I don't think I can download all my numbers without the Nav system.
I've been struggling with this myself this week. The key is whether or not the phone is "compatible" and then it is one contact at a time. Press HFL, Say "Phonebook Receive Contact". Then the car prompts you to send the contact from your phone. My iPhone4 couldn't do it, though. I gave in and just set up my top ten or so numbers the long way.It still sounds like you have to have the Nav system to download the entire phone book from your phone.
