Display Incoming Phone Contact

Anyone having a problem with an incoming call not showing the contact, only the number? I've refreshed the contact list a couple times with no improvement. It would be handy if I have someone trying to get a hold of me from work, etc, with all the solicitor call these days.

This is a phone setting issues, not a radio issue.

Not sure what kind of phone you have, but if it's an iPhone:

On the phone go to:

Settings:

Bluetooth:

Boom!:

Turn on Show Notifications and Sync Contacts. You can also tag Phone Favorites, Phone Recents, and All Contacts and they will show up as well.

Mine works fine. Wish it would pop up text messages.

It's a android system, Kyocera phone. It's not consistent, sometimes the contact name does show up. I'll check the phone settings, but I can search on the bike system for recent calls and it shows the contact name except for the call that didn't show the contact. Everything I read in the boom manual points towards refreshing contacts as it would do when you pair the phone. Haven't checked to see if text notification is available.

Same phone not an issue with my '15 GMC truck, don't think it would be a phone setting. I'll check with the dealer when I get a chance, see if they ran into this before.

Each vehicle has different settings on the IPhone, not sure how android stuff works. It could be fine in my car and wrong on the bike depending on how the phone is set up.

Rest


Powered my phone off and restarted after 15min, verified the Bluetooth settings for the bike-confirmed share contacts is checked. Even removed my phone from the bike and paired again. Refreshed the phone book. Still no contacts listed on the bike. I'm thinking the lastest updates we're done in late May by the dealer, may have caused the problem. I haven't tried to use my contacts until recently. Thinking that flash has a glitch.

Make sure the sync setting is on in the Boom GT

Some phones are not compatible, in fact for text notifications you have to have an iPhone.

Mine comes up with a 'droid but just on the bottom of the screen. If I'm on the nav screen, I don't see it at all because the bottom "ticker" portion of the screen is gone.

Did all the above, everything is checked on the boom system and phone. Even reloaded the HD update 1.22.0.2 today with no change. There are no contacts listed in the phone book, even when refreshed. The contacts did load last season prior to the latest January update, so I'm thinking that's where the problem may be. See what the dealer can come up with.
