    I was wondering if there was a way to only sync certain contacts with an iPhone via bluetooth? Once paired I think it's syncing all of them and it's taking a really long time each time. Is there a way to sync only your "Favorites" from an iPhone? Thanks!

    How many contacts do you have? I never noticed any delay (but maybe you have a monster contact list.

    I know of no way to control what is transferred.

    I would like this refinement as well even though I only have 1200 contacts. It is unlikely that I would ever call more than 10 from the car. I asked at the store and was told that its all or none.

    OK, try this.

    1. Go to Bluetooth menu
    2. Touch the blue letter i in circle
    3. Choose the contacts groups you want to synch
    That should do what you want!

    You have complete control on what is synched by device.

    Duh. Should have said go to Bluetooth menu on iPhone, lookout Tesla entry, and do rest.
