#513 of 534 2011 Camry Bluetooth and iPhone 4S
Feb 12, 2012 (8:48 pm)
I just purchased an iPhone 4S and I have paired it with the Bluetooth in my 2011 Camry LE. I have installed several different GPS apps on my iPhone and they all have the same problem: the voice guidance will not play through the audio system unless I have it set on AUX and also have streaming audio like Pandora already playing. If the GPS app is on by itself, the voice directions will not come through. I know this is a Bluetooth problem because I have paired with the Bluetooth on a 2012 Camry rental car and it works as it should. Am I missing some setting?

You are not missing a setting! I have the EXACT same issue with my iPhone 4G! How I discovered this was when I realized that my phone was no longer alerting me when I received new messages (text/email/tweets/FB and sometimes even VM). I used to work for a local Toyota dealership and am somewhat of a tech-geek and spent time fiddling with the systems or I would have to help a customer pair their phone, etc...
Which GPS app are you using? I have GPS Drive Motion X and the nav voice (that I paid extra for!) won't play AT ALL now!
I called Apple yesterday and they were able to at least identify the culprit, the cause of this inconvenience is a little bugger is the A2DP (http://www.mobileburn.com/definition.jsp?term=A2DP). The Apple tech helping me didn't really understand too much about it and, well, that makes two of us! She did say that it had something to do with the iOS 5.0 but didn't mention if this A2DP mess will be remedied next month with the release of iOS 5.1 (http://news.cnet.com/posts/?keyword=iOS+5.1). The culprit and its nasty side-affect are literally driving me NUTS!!">link title
Have you been able to get your situation with the iPhone solved?
#515 of 534 2012 Camry Hybrid GPS bluetooth vs cell bluetooth
Mar 03, 2012 (9:51 pm)
The Garmin GPS Nuvi 2460LMT uses bluetooth to monitor the TCH through the OBDII port. Does that mean that a cell phone using bluetooth for voice will not work through the TCH's speakers/mike? The security alarm on the TCH has been disabled by a plug in the OBDII port. What happens when this is removed to connect the Ecoroute HD cable? And finally are there any warrantee issues using the OBDII port? Any experiences? Advice?

Saw another posting which recommended REBOOTing my device...thank goodness...IT WORKED!!!

#518 of 534 2010 Toyota Camry Bluetooth question with Samsung Galaxy S2 phone?
Mar 22, 2012 (8:23 am)
I have a 2010 Toyota Camry and when I use the Bluetooth feature, it will display the phone number whenever some calls me. I have a Samsung Galaxy S2 cell phone. Is there a way instead of displaying the number it can display the person's name. I tried using the "send namecard via" bluetooth option, but it failed.

You can go into the Contacts Settings and click Transfer Contact. Your phone should be prompted to grant access to transfer contacts.
#520 of 534 Voice Recognition does not work for Transferred Contact
Apr 25, 2012 (6:15 pm)
I have a Camry 2010 XLE. I used to have a HTC Touch Pro 2 with Windows Mobile 6.5. After I transferred all the contacts, every contact can be recognized via voice command (e.g. Dial by Name->"Home"->Found contact) without recording any voice tag. Recently, I have switched to Google Nexus S with Android 4.04 and re-added all the contacts. The system can no longer recognize any name in the contact anymore unless I explicitly record voice tag for them (pretty limited since I can only store 20 voice tags). Have anyone experience this before? Does anyone know if this is a problem in Camry's voice recognition system or Android?
Any help will be appreciated, I have been searching this issue on the web like few weeks now
#521 of 534 Camry contacts loading problem
May 06, 2012 (8:00 am)
Just bought a 2012 Camry LE. Salesman showed me how to connect my LG(Virgin Mobile)VM670D cellphone and downloaded all my contacts etc. Looked good, until I drove off and got 2 blocks away and the contacts all disappeared! Complained to salesman and brought car back in and he couldn't get it to work either.Suggested to go to Service dept. They sent me their IT guy and he played with it for 40 minutes or so, and blamed the cellphone as not being compatible! He then demonstrated that his (old junker) cellphone worked perfectly! hard to believe that my Android phone wouldn't perform.
Eventually a few days later,I was able to download contacts,install a few speed dial numbers,and then drove off and the contacts vanished again,but the speed dial numbers stuck. Any ideas?Do I have to buy a new phone or is there something wrong with the Camry memory?

Contacts and the numeric dial pad are not available while the car is in motion. Only the speed dials are available while the car is in motion. If the contacts are not there while the car is stopped then that is a problem.
