Find a Phone, Pair a Phone

You must use a smartphone that is compatible with the system. After a device is paired, it is automatically identified by the system. If Bluetooth® is always turned on in the cellular phone, you ensure that the device will automatically connect to the vehicle whenever the ignition is turned on.

Instructions for pairing or adding a phone vary, depending on the model of phone.

Pair (or add) a device:

  1. Select SETTINGS from the Home screen.
  2. Select DEVICES tab.
  3. Select BLUETOOTH® and turn setting ON.
  4. Select ADD NEW DEVICE.
  5. Using your device with Bluetooth® turned on, perform a search for the Bluetooth® device (peripheral device) and select TOYOTA from list.
