No Bluetooth connectivity on Jensen JWM1A

My iPhone never shows it. Tried wife's phone too. Any ideas?

So on my Jensen I have to push the "mode" button until it says BT and then push the "search" button (where it starts a count down from somewhere like 100) while that count down is happening I check my phone's bluetooth setting to make sure it is seeking a pairing....seems to work on my windows phone for Spotify and Tunein Radio apps.

Just happened to me. Look on the front of the radio for a tiny reset button. Hold it down for a few seconds and it'll reset. Worked for me

I downloaded the jControl app on both my iPhone and my Android Tablet. The JWM1A Owner's Manual says about the jControl app, to "use as instructed with the jControl app manual found at http://asaelectronics.com/manuals-guides." There is no jControl app manual on that website. Has anyone seen one and know how I could get a copy?

I e-mailed Jensen and asked where to really find the jControl app manual since it is not where the radio owner's manual said it was. They told me there is no manual for the jControl app. I suggested they remove the reference to it from the radio manual if it does not exist. Be interested to see if that will happen in future printings of the owner's manual - probably not.

Load the Jensen app on your phone. Open the app. Hit the bluetooth button on the radio twice, display will say "pair" with a countdown, I think it's 120 sec.
Leave app open but go to the bluetooth settings on your phone, Make sure your phone is discoverable, when the radio finds it, your phone model will appear in the radio display. Go back to the app, you should be connected. App works great.. Good luck

Thanks. I had figured it out OK and made it work a few days ago. My comment was aimed primarily at the Jensen Owner's Manual referring to a jControl User Manual, even providing a link to it, and then it didn't exist. They have users of the app wasting time looking for something they have never developed.

Still no Bluetooth on JWM1A

I've tried all the different suggestions on this page, and in the instructions, but still can not connect any bluetooth phone we have to the JWM1A. Has anyone learned anything new? I guess I may have to try Jensen, but I notice they have disabled email contact on their website....

I have to go in and "reset" a lot on the Jensen unit. I also delete it as a bluetooth connection on my iphone at the same time. I have to do this to reconnect when I loses its connection. I do this multiple times a day.
