Our take on the Scosche BlueFusion GM Bluetooth® Interface

by Zak Billmeier
Scosche

Don't you wish you could take that little headset out of your ear while you're on the road? Now you can add the convenience of Bluetooth hands-free calling to your GM factory stereo with this Scosche BlueFusion module. You'll hear your caller over your car's speakers, letting you keep your hands on the wheel. And if your phone supports it, you can even stream tunes to the stereo while your phone stays stashed in your pocket or purse.

Once your phone is paired, it'll connect to your stereo every time you turn on your car. You'll see who's calling on your stereo's screen when a call comes in, and you can answer the call using your vehicle's steering wheel controls — you won't have to take your eyes off the road. Scosche's echo-canceling microphone ensures your callers will hear you loud and clear.

Bluetooth note: Bluetooth compatibility of this device may vary, depending on your phone and service provider.

Note: The Scosche BlueFusion Bluetooth Interface (BFCL2K) comes with two harnesses. One harness (BFCL2XMB) is for vehicles with an XM Satellite Radio tuner and the other harness (BFCL2HB) is for vehicles without an XM Satellite Radio tuner. Some vehicles feature a rear XM Satellite Radio tuner and require an optional extension cable (142BFEXTB, sold separately).

Bluetooth Compatibility: The Scosche BlueFusion Bluetooth Interface (BFCL2K) supports Bluetooth hands-free communication and A2DP streaming from your Bluetooth enabled cellular phone and portable digital music player.

Note: Scosche does not guarantee 100% compatibility with all Bluetooth enabled device. Some cellular phone manufactures utilize a Bluetooth microprocessor that is not compatible with the BlueFusion system. Some phones from Palm, LG (Envy/Envy2), Samsung (Impression), and HTC (Omni) have exhibited operating difficulties with the BlueFusion system.

Pairing: Your Bluetooth enabled cellular phone must be paired with the Scosche BlueFusion Bluetooth Interface. Once the initial pairing process has been complete, your phone will easily connect and disconnect to the BFCL2K Bluetooth Interface.

Note: The BlueFusion BFCL2K will pair to only one phone at a time.

Auto Connect/Disconnect: When your vehicle is started, the BlueFusion BFCL2K will automatically connect to the Bluetooth enabled device which it was last paired. If you are on an active call or listening to streaming audio and the vehicle is turned off, the BlueFusion BFCL2K will automatically transfer the call to the handset or your audio back to the player.

Source Select: The BlueFusion system functions as an XM source through your vehicle's factory radio. In order to access BlueFusion, the XM band must be selected. If listening to a source other than XM, BlueFusion will automatically switch to the XM band when there is an incoming call.

Note: When the call is ended your factory radio may not automatically switch back to the previous source unless the previous source was XM. You may need to manually switch back to your previous source.

Hands-Free Communication: The Scosche BlueFusion Bluetooth Interface (BFCL2K) seamlessly integrates your Bluetooth enabled cell-phone into your vehicle's factory audio system. You will hear a ring-tone through your vehicle's speaker and Caller ID will display on your factory radio's screen. The Scosche BFCL2K will automatically mute your music on any source as a call comes in. Simply press the answer/hang up button on the factory radio or steering wheel to answer or end the call. The included high-fidelity microphone and your vehicle's factory speakers allow you to carry on your phone conversation.

External Microphone: The Scosche BlueFusion Bluetooth Interface (BFCL2K) includes an external microphone with DSP echo cancellation to ensure a crystal clear conversation. The included microphone can mounted to your vehicle's visor, headliner, or dash. The microphone should be aimed towards the driver's seat. The microphone measures 0.5625" in diameter x 1.125" in depth.

Making A Call: The Scosche BlueFusion Bluetooth Interface (BFCL2K) offers various hands-free calling methods:

  • Voice Dial: The BlueFusion Bluetooth Interface supports voice dialing with compatible Bluetooth cellular phones.
  • Call Log: You can make a call using the BlueFusion system's incoming, outgoing, or missed call logs from your vehicle's factory radio or steering wheel controls.
  • Handset: When making an outgoing call directly from your cell-phone, the factory radio will automatically switch to the BlueFusion source and send hands-free audio through the factory speakers.

Note: The Scosche BlueFusion Bluetooth Interface (BFCL2K) does not support numeric dialing from the factory radio or steering wheel controls. It also does not support the Bluetooth Phonebook profile.

Call Waiting: The Scosche BFCL2K supports the Call Waiting function, so you can answer another incoming call while suspending the current call you are on. Your compatible cell-phone must also support this feature.

Conference Call: The Scosche BFCL2K also lets you receive two calls at once so you can talk to two people at once. Your cell-phone must also support this feature.

Privacy Mode: You can use your factory radio or steering wheel controls to send the conversation back to your cell-phone for more privacy.

Audio Streaming: The Scosche BlueFusion Bluetooth Interface (BFCL2K) supports steaming music with most Bluetooth A2DP enabled cell-phones and digital audio players. You will be able to control basic playback functions such as Play, Pause, Next Track, or Previous Track from your vehicle's factory radio or steering wheel controls.

Note: There must first be a phone paired to the BlueFusion BFCL2K before pairing a secondary Bluetooth enabled A2DP device. While streaming Bluetooth audio, redial and voice dial functions are disabled.

Volume Level: You can adjust the volume level for Bluetooth audio and Bluetooth hands-free communication independently from your vehicle's stereo system to match the volume levels of other audio sources.
