How does Bluetooth contacts sync work?

Just started playing around with the Bluetooth today. It downloaded all my contacts correctly the first time. Cool. But just wondering how does it sync? Does it pull down all the new changes each time the car starts or something?

It syncs the full address book every time you start the car.

Maybe I'm missing something, but with BT, it doesn't need to sync. It just connects to the phone, then displays the contacts from your phone.

I suppose you could transfer all the contacts to the car, then sync it each time, but in my case this isn't necessary since I always have my phone with me.

Mine resynchs and updates new contacts when ever I start the car also. Maybe its a software upgrade issue?

Depends on your phone. It works with Motorola, Apple ...
It doesn't work with some LG, Samsung, Nokia N95 ...
