Droid and bluebooth in car

I'm going crazy.  I have a new Kia Sorrento and I'm trying to get my bluetooth to work.  It won't recognize my phonebook.  Anyone can help me or tell me which message board I need to be in.

Thanks

Most vehicle Blue tooth systems have the phone search for the system.  However, when it comes to smartphones, it sometimes help to have they system search for the phone.  Try making your Droid discoverable and having your car system find the Droid.  This will sometimes allow the car to identify to the phone which components of blue tooth it wishes to utilize.   If this doesn't work, it may just be that your car kit and the Droid are not compatible for phone book transfer.

I can't even add a name by the add name feature in the car.  It keeps saying pardon, pardon, pardon, and then cancel.  I call use the number feature by calling and I can receive a call.  It just won't store names, it appears only numbers.
