It means AA couldn't/wouldn't start because headset not detected.I apologize if this is covered elsewhere in the thread. I successfully loaded the July firmware update on to my 2018 DCT tour, and am now trying to activate Android Auto. I haven't been able to get past the part where you pair the bike to the headset. Here are the steps I have followed : 1. Audio Settings 2. Bluetooth Setting 3. Rider HS Pairing 4. Inquiry
The screen displays "Searching headset. Please wait" After a while it seems to time out, and goes back to the previous screen. I have an inexpensive Plantronics M70 headset which I had bought 4 or 5 years ago, and had paired successfully with my Android phone. I unpaired it from the phone before trying to pair it to the bike. Before I buy a Tozo product or some other headset, could you please advise if I'm following the proper procedure ? Thanks in advance
UPDATE : I think I found the answer about the compatibility of the Plantronics M70. Looked up the specs online and it lists A2DP as one of Bluetooth Profiles. The instructions from Honda state that this will not work with Android phone. Would still appreciate if you could advise if I'm following correct procedure. Thanks
UPDATE: I bought an Insignia NS-MBTHS and paired it to the bike. When I plugged the phone into the USB on the bike, it said "Unable to start Android Auto. Headset disconnected". I have my phone USB settings defaulted to File Transfer. Could it be the cable, as has been mentioned previously ?
Headset needs to be connected to bike before the phone cord is plugged in. (look for the headset icon, with a 1 on it on the top line of the screen on the bike).
Phone will have to have AA running as well. There is an AA setting so it autostarts in future when re-connected to bike.
I don't know what you mean by 'I have my phone USB settings defaulted to File Transfer'.
