Yes, it is possible, my 2007 XK8 in the phone settings will search for your phone then just click on it when identified, and you are hooked up....each time you enter the car

Moderators -

Have checked this out - certainly helpful. However...for us iPhone users the Jaguar guide 'ends' at iPhone 4 and things have moved on. If your car does not find your later iPhone, try turning off Siri. This is covered in posts elsewhere (which helped me) but probably ought to be covered in their sticky, too?

Thanks....

Based on this, the 2010 XKR I am about to buy will not connect with my iPhone 6.

Don't get hung up on that info. It's old and no way can any car company keep up with the phones that are produced. Even trying to keep the documentation current is mind boggling.
When your car arrives give it a try. Sometimes it works just fine and given the year of your vehicle, I'd say it should pair fine.

My iPhone 6 pairs and docks with my '07 XK - but only if I turn Siri off first. Otherwise the car won't recognise the phone.

So your new-to-you 2010 XKR ought to be fine....

I'll give that a try. So far, the phone is paired and works but not the contacts.

GOT IT! I deleted the phone from the car. Then I deleted previous parings from the phone, turned it off, turned it back on and it paired. Now the car finds my phone, the last calls I made/received and my phonebook!

Good to hear you managed to fix this issue - intuitive it is not!

How about playing music from your Samsung phone or an iPod? Will the USB work for this? So far no luck.

Thank you.

no. You can only play music from a USB flash drive plugged into the USB. If you want to play music from the iPod, plug the iPod into the iPod connector. If you want to play music from your Samsung phone, you need some sort of conversion. I use a Carpro bluetooth to iPod device, pair my phone to it, then it can stream music from the phone to the iPod connector.

Just got a new Samsung Galaxy S8 and wanted to let everyone know that it connected to my 2009 XKR and 2013 XJ without any problems.

I just bought an 09 XK and it paired and docked and I used it a couple times. I also have the Samsung S8. Now it says its not paired. I have tried deleting and it wont delete anything. The phone sees the car, not the other way though. Gremlins. I will try again and hope the Gremlins are napping or something.

I upgraded from a 6 Plus to an 8 Plus on my '07 XKR with no issues so a 7 should work.

can you stream music through the bluetooth connection, or do you still need to use that goofy cable to connect? my iphone 6 plus works for phone calls via bluetooth but not for streaming music. i have the 2014 XKR-S.
