Turn on and connect to a Bluetooth device

To turn on and connect a Bluetooth hands-free headset(s), car kit(s), or other Bluetooth devices:

        1. Touch Apps Image 
        2. Touch Settings
        3. Under Wireless & Networks; Turn Bluetooth on Image

        Tip: To extend battery life, turn Bluetooth off  Imagewhen not in use.

        4. Touch Bluetooth 
        5. Your phone will be scanning for available Bluetooth devices (make sure your device is in pairing mode)
        6. Touch the Bluetooth device to select it
        7. Type the PIN if needed (PIN is usually 0000 or 1234)
        8. Touch the device name again to connect to it. (If it doesn't automatically)

Tips:

  • If your device is not connecting to the Bluetooth accessory, it is recommended that you try to reset the Bluetooth device. Check your accessory user guide for reset details.

  • During the Bluetooth pairing/connection process, some car kits will require you to accept the PBAP and MAP notifications to successfully establish a connection.  Ignoring or rejecting the request may cause the car to disconnect and again try to establish a connection. This can result in you seeing a continuous sequence of connections and disconnections.

    To avoid this situation, you should allow the PBAP and MAP requests and also click the "Always Allow" check box so you only need to accept these requests once. If you are already experiencing this situation, please disconnect (un-pair) the phone from the car and reconnect again. This time being sure to accept the PBAP and MAP requests and click the "Always Allow" checkbox.

Trusted Devices

This feature will allow your phone to remain unlocked while connected to Bluetooth devices that you trust. If you disconnect or get too far away, the device will lock once again. 

To use this feature simply pair your phone with a Bluetooth device, and select Trusted Device when prompted. If you missed the initial notification all you need to do is go to Settings -> Security -> Trusted Devices -> select the Bluetooth devices you want to be able to keep your phone unlocked.

Notes:

  • You can choose to lock manually through the notification curtain.
  • Your power key will not automatically lock when you are connected to a trusted device.

Lollipop - Where are my Trusted Device settings? They stopped working.

Lollipop now includes a feature called Smart Lock that replaces Motorola’s Trusted Devices feature.  This allows you to keep your phone unlocked when in the presence of a trusted device, such as your Moto 360 or a bluetooth headset or car kit.  Unfortunately there is no way to automatically migrate your former trusted devices, but it is easy to re-add them after the upgrade.

First, you need to enable Smart Lock by selecting the Settings>Security menu.  Scroll all the way down and select “Trust Agents” from the Advanced section.  Touch the toggle on the “Smart Lock (Google) to enable this menu. Go back to the main Security menu and scroll up until you see the new “Smart Lock” entry.  After selecting this (and unlocking your device if it is secured), you will see “Trusted Devices” and “Trusted Faces.”  You can add devices by pressing the red button with the plus sign.  Alternatively you can add faces that you trust to unlock your phone. Please note that some security policy settings by corporate administrators may block the Trusted Faces feature because those administrators may impose security requirements that exceed Trusted Faces.
