#6 of 31 Download iPhone Contacts To Phonebook?
Jul 20, 2010 (2:54 pm)
Forgive me if this has been asked before, but is there a way to download the contacts from my iPhone to my Venza's phonebook? It's an iPhone 3Gs with OS4 and a 2010 Venza with the standard radio (no Nav, no JBL). I suppose I could enter the important ones by hand, but would rather be able to have them all download automatically. It seems like there should be a way, but maybe not.
Thanks for any help!

Just press "Transfer Contacts" or something like that. I did with my Iphone 3G and Iphone 4G

Have a 2010 Venza awd v6. One of the "upgrades" was to the JBL audio system.
Wow, what a disappointment. I can only hope that Toyota will never put such a piece of junk into another car. The radio has all the specs and connects to everything, but the sound is just awful. It doesn't matter if you use the CD, XM, FM, or an Ipod, it is just a terrible sounding piece of junk.
I can only hope that somebody from Toyota reads these forums and they fix this soon, or just quit offering $1,000 upgrades that aren't worth a penny more than the stock radio.
PS, Love the rest of the car and I get to appreciate how quite it is.

I recently purchased a 2010 Venza and am experiencing the same problem with the radio. I am having a problem primarily with the FM stations. AM and XM seem to be okay. Have you contacted the dealer where you bought the car? If so, did they have any suggestions?

#13 of 31 Bluetooth Compatibilty
May 25, 2010 (3:46 pm)
I have a 2009 Venza, with JBL Synthesis Nav system. I am able to use my iPhone 3g for hands free incoming and outgoing calls, and play all my music. The issue I am running into is controlling the iPhone via the JBL interface.
The only control is pause and play. Nothing else is available.
I checked with my Toyota dealer and discover the compatibility with iPhone, iPod, and Touch series is all based upon version. I asked the dealer if there is a firmware update for the JBL, and they say there is none they know of.
So I'm thinking of a different device for music; a blue tooth MP3 player not made by Apple.
So, does anyone know of a place where I find a listing of players that will allow complete control via the JBL touch screen?

I have also 2009 venza and I use blackberry for bluetooth audio streaming.
It is really cool. I can control the volume and track from the buttons in the steering wheel. Tracks, album, songs also can be displayed in the navigation screen.
