Hoping some one can help. I purchased a new VMS 70000 series GPS for my Landcruiser 200. I can not get the blue tooth connection to work on my Blackberry phone. The dealer has had three goes at it; tried new ones, updated models and still does not work. VMS claim their is a problem with the Blackberry. Has any one had a similar experience? Secondly the ipod does not work. It gets stuck on a couple of tunes and you can't change it. Starting to wish I had left the Landcruiser radio in it as all worked perfect except that I did not have a GPS system for the country.
Hoping some one can help.

I have one in my 200 series and I think from memory it was highlighted that it didn't like blackberry. All the phones around us (all are non blackberry) work fine through bluetooth on the VMS unit.

For music we tend to use MP3s on a disk so can't help with the Ipod.

The unit has worked fine for several years now - I love it

Sorry to hear you are having trouble. We have a Walkman connected to the USB port and it works perfectly. No troubles with blue tooth. Not a Blackberry though. Maybe dig up an old one for the car only. But we don't use it much as we are mostly out of range of the mobile networks.

Don't give up. Chris at VMS has been most helpful. WE have the VMS 3000 tourer in our 100 series.

What happens when you try to pair the devices?
Sorry can't help with the ipod as my vms works fine. I take it the ipod is working normally if its not connected to the vms.

I have a Polaris which is similair to a VMS. When connecting my Blackberry 9700 the only issue was finding the passcode number, the Polaris dosen't display the code but its printed in the manual (1234). Once I put that in it all worked fine, was a 30 second job. Not sure what the VMS steps are but would expect them to be similair;

1. set blackberry to bluetooth search mode
2. when it finds the Polaris, select it,
3. set Polaris to bluetooth pairing mode
4. input passcode (1234) to blackberry
5. it connects!!!

Do you get to the stage where you have to input the passcode for the VMS into the blackberry?
