My new Z10 won't connect to Parrot V5.11C Blue tooth
Having a hard time connecting my Z10 to my cars blue tooth. My 9800 and 9900 used to connect to the same unit with no problems. It pairs quickly but won't connect with it. When I click on the bluetooth device name on my phone, it turns green for a few seconds and turns back black. I tried at least 20 times and it only connected once. Is my phone defective? I don't see any adjustment on the phone for bluetooth.

I had the ck3000 software updated to v5.25c but same problem. The engineer spoke with parrot who said they are only just starting to test the z10 but are aware of major issues with the phones bluetooth.
Anybody any ideas?
I wanted the z10 to be a good phone and it is but these little issues are starting to mount up and causing problems where no other phone I have had owned in the past few years has.

It could be that this bluetooth module is different then whats out there now. I'm sure parrot will sort it out with some new firmware. I also sent them an email on saturday regarding this problem. I really wouldn't blame blackberry for an issue that Parrot, a company who works solely with bluetooth technology to be behind the ball on the bluetooth module that's in the z10.Sent from my Blackberry Z10/Playbook

My Z10 connects perfectly fine with the build in BT in the Kia Sorento, but don't want to auto connect with the Parrot CK3000 v5.25 installed in my other car. Is there still no solution to get the Z10 to auto connect to the Parrot CK3000 v5.25?

I had no pairings on my phone. My parrot ck3000 v5.21 was the first pairing i made. From what I remember i think it worked the first time i used it. Then after that, it makes the sound as if it connected (if i look at the bluetooth pairings it says its not), but as soon as i try to use it it makes the disconnect sound.Sent from my Blackberry Z10/Playbook

Seems I have found a workaround. I am running a ck3000 with FW ver. 5.21. What you need to do is be in the process of making a call or be on the phone. Minimize the call screen and open the bluetooth properties. Tap on the parrot device. You'll hear it connect and the call will now be on the car kit. This should last until you shut the car off. Then you'll have to do it again When you get back in. I had a friend try it on a Verizon z10 and his ck3000 ver. 5.21 and it worked fine. I am going to update to the latest fw this weekend. Hope this helps you out.

I had an early Z10 worked OK with CK3000, after first update dropped out after connection 50% of time, after latest update only managed to stay connected twice !! Updated CK3000 to latest firmware. What have they changed since first issue in UK.

Parrot confirm currently testing Z10 & Q10 (May 2013)
Have just spoken to Parrot (2nd May 2013 - Carl @ Support Dept: Parrot UK), they are currently testing both the Z10 & Q10 against their product set
They expect this testing to be completed by month-end May 2013
By the end of May, the Parrot UK Website (compatibility list) will be updated (or not, if the Z10 & Q10 do not work with the Parrot Product set)
Potentially, there may be Parrot s/w updates to make older Parrot versions compatible with either of the Z10 & Q10
Hope this helps - fingers crossed for the end of May (2013)BigAl_BB9900
BB9900 (Orange UK) - 7.1.0 Bundle 2061 (v220.127.116.114, Platform 18.104.22.1682)

and a Doro345gsmPAYG for everytime the new BB9900/Orange3G knacks up.... (btw Doro make great simple big-button handsets for seniors and for those of us with reduced feeling in our fingertips.....)

My z10 connects sometimes to my ck3000 evolution (v5.25) on the 2nd or 3rd attempt then next time it may take 20 to 30 tries, for the past few days its been failing to connect more often than not. Spoke with Vodafone who said it's the parrot kit at fault, spoke with parrot who said there are issues with the z10 and if they can sort it they will otherwise just have to hope for a blackberry is update. Know that Os 10.1 is due just hope it solves this and the email issue I have been having since day one.

Still no better connecting, I bought a Clip-n_talk portable for visor, if I forget to turn it on Parrot still tries to connect - does not suceed. If portable is on works fine with Z10. I will just have to use portable BT and try Parrot again after any updates. Why cannot Blackberry offer a legacy mode in the software that would work - just emulate the old Bolds etc. as the original Z10 software worked OK.

Just an update. I have loaded a few of the leaked 10.1 os's and each one connects constantly to my parrot ck3000. I am able to use the voice control to send bbms and whatnot. If you want your ck3000 to work and dont mind running leaked software, this is your quickest fix and best bet.Sent from my Blackberry Z10/Playbook
