'Not exactly on topic but as a fellow Treo 700p user, I thought you might be interested to know that there is a software update coming next month, in April 2007. The good news is that one of the things it is supposed to do is update the Bluetooth stack, which should improve its ability to sync with the Toyota Camry Hybrid (and a host of other cars). The bad news is that the update is only for Sprint 700p smartphones; 700p smartphones from other cell companies (such as Verizon Wireless) will not be updated until later in the year.'
Though I have the 700, I had the 650 and can't imagine it would give you that much trouble.

One tip: sometimes the Bluetooth antenna and mic are not hooked up from the factory. If when you first enter the system and cannot record a name, e.g. the computer does not recognize the your voice commands, then your system is not hooked up and your dealer can fix this in a matter of minutes. Otherwise, the Treo 700W is compatible with the Camry Hybrid. As far as phonebook transfers go, you can only beam one contact at a time. That is the only pitfall. I got around this by transferring my contact list to my daughter's Sanyo and then used her phone to load the contact list in one fail swoop to the Camry.
My experience with the voice quality and connectivity in the Camry has been nothing but EXCELLENT.

I have had no problems with connectivity with my 700P and can hear perfectly... do you ever have complaints (as I do) that people have trouble hearing you?
#65 of 130 Adding Microsoft Windows Mobile PDA Contacts to the Phone Addressbook
May 15, 2007 (6:55 pm)
This is my first post here!!!
This information applies to Windows Mobile 2003 and later. It might work with other earlier versions and any Bluetooth phone as well.
There are 3 ways for adding entries to your car address book. I would like to share with you on how to transfer a contact from your address book to the Phone book.
Pair your PDA with the car.
Please note, in order to be able to transfer a contact from your PDA address book to the car, create a new contact and use these fields only:
1. First name field: Use e.g. "Mark Home" in the first name field.
2. 10 digit contact number (North American style)
3. Input the number in the home field in the contact card.
NOTE: THE CAR'S ADDRESS BOOK DOES NOT ACCEPT PARANTHESES. ONLY 10 NUMBERS MUST BE USED IN THE HOME FIELD OF THAT CONTACT.
Now, if numbers are entered in a new contact, the PDA will automatically group the first 3 digits as the area code and put them between two parentheses and put a dash between the 3rd and 4th number. E.g. (123)456-6789
Now in order to overcome this issue; Change your regional setting for your PDA from English US to English UK and start to create your 20 contacts that you want to transfer to the car's address book. After that is done, start adding entries to your car's address book "by phone".
Right click any contact on your PDA (right click = keep pressing the stylus to a contact for more than 3 seconds) and then choose beam contact, and then choose your car to send to.
I transferred my 20 contacts successfully to my NON/NAV JBL Camry Hybrid and my i-mate JAM windows mobile 2003 2nd Edition, and now whenever I dial, the name of the contact appears on the LCD panel instead of " No Name".
As for all other people who are facing difficulty sending contact one by one, Irrespective of your phone's model and make, just insure to store the name and input the 10 digit contact number WITHOUT ANY PARANTHESES in the home field of your contact and give it a try and send it by your Bluetooth.
Thanks for your time! And best of luck.

Just for the record, the software upgrade for the Treo 700p was released today, Monday, 4 June 2007, and it does address a few bluetooth issues. Among other things, it's supposed to be more compatible with the Denso system that Toyota/Lexus uses. See the link at http://www.palm.com/us/support/downloads/treo700pupdate/index.html
Also, I will add that the major issue I have had with syncing my Treo 700p with my TCH is that the 700p periodically shuts its bluetooth off when not in use (as a power-saving feature?). So occasionally I (and/or my wife) will get in my car and my phone will not pair.
As for sound quality, when the bluetooth was working, I could hear most people reasonably well and have heard few complaints from others about hearing me. Whatever problems I had -- and again, my problems were related to known Treo 700p issues -- sound quality was not one of them.
#67 of 130 Pairing Doesn't Hold---Verizon Treo 650--Camry Hybrid 2007

I've tried many of the suggestions in the postings; I can pair the car and treo once. However, as soon as either car or treo is turned off, pairing is lost. Would truly appreciate step by step help in resolving this. Toyota unable to help. Many thanks!

I can't understand why I don't have a pairing problem with my 700P... why should I be any different than you guys???
I think that I followed the instructions in the manual... and it has always worked... but I will check.

This is great, but how do you transfer them to the Camry phonebook? Can you explain each step in the process? Thanks!

Could not do it... Entered a few numbers one at a time and then gave up. With only a few numbers entered, 50% of the time the wrong name comes up on the screen! Because of this I rely on the phone itself.
#71 of 130 switching between bluetooth and phone
Jul 03, 2007 (10:12 am)
I often have clients in the car with me and don't wish to have them hear all my phone conversations. I am using a motorola razr ---- so, is there any way to turn off bluetooth quickly and use the actual phone itself for privacy concerns?
