Bluetooth can't call home.

Anyone else have a problem calling home over Bluetooth? Every other contact in my phone, no problems, ever. But the system absolutely refuses to "Call home".

90% of the time I push the button, say "Call Home", and the screen switches to the phone screen but nothing else happens. It's as if the system is not programmed to recognize the word "home". The rest of the time, the voice will say "Would you like to call [random 2 digits]?". I even tried adding my home number to another contact, but when I say "Call, Contact, Home", the voice just answers "Would you like to call Contact at Work or Mobile?". The word "Home" is simply not recognized!

This is extremely annoying, as the only possible way to call my house is to pull my phone out of my pocket. Does anyone have a fix for this, other than assigning my home number to a fake contact name?

Re: Bluetooth can't call home.

Yes. I put my name in front of the word Home in my directory. Seems better but not perfect. In general Bluetooth in my MY15 sucks compared to my MY11.

Mine would keep brining up other contacts when I wanted 'home'. Now I just use Siri - works great.

Re: Bluetooth can't call home.

Making sure you have the most up to date Uconnect software, and your phone is running the latest updated OS will help. My Nexus 6p was finnicky for the longest time and I finally updated my Uconnect and it has been better. Still kind of shoddy, but better.

Also, I think there is a way to "train" the voice system if you drill through the bluetooth menus. Have you tried that?
