Citroën C5 / Citroen C5 Owner's Manual / Radio / Bluetooth®

Your audio system may be Bluetooth® compatible. It allows you to connect a mobile telephone for use “hands free” and even to use its directory.

It permits you to twin up to four telephones, to be able then to connect whichever one you choose.

The Bluetooth® functions available and the content of the display are dependent on the type of mobile telephone, its settings and the type of contract you have. For this reason it is advisable to make enquiries with your telephone provider.

Prior to any operation:

Your display should be lit up (key in position M).

Your telephone's Bluetooth® system must be activated.

Twinning a telephone

Twinning a telephone consists of having it recognised by the Bluetooth® system on your vehicle.

This then permits an instantaneous connection.

Twinning can only be performed with ignition switched on, display illuminated, engine stopped. No other telephone should be connected.

The twinning must be performed with the telephone and its Bluetooth® system activated.

Note: Refer to the user instructions to familiarise yourself with the features of twinning.

The telephone detects the Bluetooth® system on your vehicle. “CITROËN” displays on your telephone.

You should then select “CITROËN” on your telephone controls. Next you have to accept or decline this twinning.

Note: If the 4 twinning memories are already being used, you must select a memory that is already attributed although the telephone twinned to this location will no longer be.

Next the telephone asks you to enter an identification code:



Note: This entry may be demanded earlier in the twinning sequence.

The telephone is now twinned to your Bluetooth® system. For immediate access to the Bluetooth® functions, it may be necessary to make a connection (see following page Configuration : Connecting a twinned mobile telephone).

Once the twinning is finished, you will be able to connect your telephone via the “Main menu”.

Connecting a twinned telephone

Each time you enter the vehicle, after switching on the audio system, your telephone is detected automatically.

If more than one telephone is present, the last telephone to have been connected is the first to be recognised.

Note: Disconnections may occur.

You may have to make a new connection (see following page, Configuration : Connecting a twinned mobile telephone).


In the event of a problem, it is recommended to switch your telephone off and then on again.

If you switch off your telephone within the field of reception of the Bluetooth® system on your vehicle, the next connection will not be automatic. To restore automatic connection, you will have to connect your telephone manually (see following page, Configuration : Connecting a twinned mobile telephone).

If you are already in telephone communication when the audio system is turned on, the latter detects the telephone.

To avoid interference, you are advised not to place your mobile telephone close to your radio.
