Toyota Offers Bluetooth on 15 Models
Posted: 14-Jul-2008 [Source: Toyota]

[Toyota reminds drivers in states enacting laws prohibiting talking on cell phones while driving that the company offers integrated Bluetooth in 15 models and in the soon to be introduced 2009 Venza.]

Torrance, CA -- Toyota Motor Sales (TMS), U.S.A., Inc. currently offers integrated Bluetooth® hands-free wireless systems in 15 models and will make it available on the all-new 2009 Venza when it goes on sale this fall.

With more states enacting laws that prohibit driving while talking on handheld cell phones, the Bluetooth® hands-free systems connection between certain Toyota models and most Bluetooth®-enabled mobile phones provide an easy wireless solution. Built into optional Toyota onboard DVD navigation and JBL audio systems, the technology provides users with convenient hands-free phone capabilities.

Bluetooth® hands-free systems are available on Toyota RAV4, Corolla and Matrix models with a JBL audio unit. The system is also available on Toyota 4Runner, Highlander, Highlander Hybrid, Land Cruiser, Sequoia, Sienna, Tundra, Avalon, Camry, Camry Hybrid, Prius, and Solara models with the JBL audio unit or DVD navigation system.

The available DVD navigation and JBL audio systems enable the driver to make and receive hands-free phone calls on most compatible Bluetooth® equipped cell phones via the vehicle's built in microphone and speakers. There is no need to connect any interface cables between the phone and the vehicle. Owners simply need to register the phone by "pairing" to the system.

Due to differences in the quality of various handsets and Bluetooth® chip programming, phone functionality levels may differ by cell phone. The customer typically can enjoy the following Bluetooth® hands-free benefits on Toyota models:

-- Integrated phone operation utilizes built-in microphone and audio speakers.

-- One touch call answering via the steering-wheel control or the navigation screen.

-- Automatic audio mute when receiving or making a call.

-- Place a call from an outgoing or the incoming call log (up to five most recent calls -- on DVD navigation system only).

-- Voice command functions also allow the driver to make or receive calls.

Owners can refer to the LetsTalk Web site at for a listing of compatible phones and functionality.
