How to Connect Your Phone to Your Outlander Sport!

Jim Shorkey, Mitsubishi, jim shorkey,

Connecting bluetooth can be a trying experience if you are unfamiliar with a vehicle or a device.  Here at Jim Shorkey Mitsubishi, we have some helpful hints to connect your phone to your loved Mitsubishi.

Vehicle Setup

  1. Press the speech button on the steering wheel. It displays the image of a head with speech lines coming from the mouth.  Wait for the beep.
  2. After the beep, say “Setup.” The vehicle will list several options through the audio system at this point. Wait until it has completed the list and beeps again.
  3. Say “Pairing options.” Again, the vehicle will list options like list phones, select phone and pair a new phone. Wait for the beep.
  4. Say “Pair.” The Outlander will dictate instructions, and ask you for a four-digit PINcode.
  5. Say ANY four-digit pin code. You will use this PIN code on your phone right away to complete the pairing procedure.

Phone Setup

  1. From the “Settings” menu, select Bluetooth.
  2. Make sure Bluetooth is enabled, or set to “On.”
  3. Start a search on your phone for new devices.
  4. Once detected, “Hands-Free System” or a similar name will display. Select it.
  5.  Enter the four-digit PIN number you selected previously. In some cases, the PIN number will display and you will only need to confirm that is it correct.
  6. Your vehicle will ask you for a name associated with the cellphone.  Say your name after the beep.
  7. The vehicle will confirm by saying “Pairing Complete.”

Suv bound

Mitsubishi will bring five new Suvs to market in Europe and other regions by 2021.  It is an attempt to reposition itself as a brand specializing in 4X4’s.  With this news many fans are speculating that popular hatchback vehicles like the Mirage will come to the end around this time.

Each Suv’s will be in their different automotive section segments.  In order of size, smallest to biggest:

A small B-SUV (i.e. Juke/Captur sized), previewed by the yellow eX concept revealed at the 2015 Tokyo motor show and making its European debut at the 2016 Geneva show. Name still to be confirmed

A mid-sized SUV slightly larger than the ASX, and previewed by 2013’s XR-PHEV II concept. We’ll see the production version, rumored to be called the Outlander Sport, in 2017.  Replacement for the current Outlander, due in 2018

The Shogun Sport, a large SUV already on sale in Australian and Asian markets as the Pajero Sport, with a 2.4-liter diesel engine and eight-speed automatic gearbox and built on the same platform as the L200 pickup truck in Thailand. Overseas it’s a five-seater, but UK versions will seat seven.

The replacement full-size Shogun, likely to be the last of the quintet to reach production. Like the current Shogun, it will be built on an entirely different platform from the rest of Mitsubishi’s models.

If Mitsubishi’s going to become an SUV brand, where does that leave the small Mirage supermini?  Mitsubishi is developing a new mirage next year available as a pure EV.  This will give it an obvious link with Mitsubishi’s other goal of having more electric cars is future areas.
