First thing I would do is see if there is an update for the phone's operating system - and then look to see if there is one for the Toyota as well. Then update the vehicle (you'll probably be able to download this from the Toyota website - then put it on a USB stick to transfer it. USB port will be somewhere in the front)My Samsung S10 won't connect via Bluetooth to my Toyota Hilux (17 plate). Whenever the vehicle attempts connection, my phone switches the Bluetooth off, in spite of listing the truck as being paired, and vice versa. Any ideas, thanks in advance.
Works Transit had this problem, the only solution was to disconnect power to the sound system. Then re-connect a hard re-boot in effect.
I can't believe it isn't, surely Bluetooth is the same whatever device it is on ? I'll try the USB update route.Is the phone on Toyota's compatibility list? Including the OS version you're running?
Unfortunately that's something I hear at work a lot - Bluetooth stacks are a bit like electronic jenga, it doesn't take much effort to make them fall over if they're not built exactly right.The phone is fine with other Bluetooth items, and my wife's iPhone connected fine.
There's a lot of variables, chipset and base OS being the two most important ones, it's a nightmare TBH, Ford updates can take several hours, sometimes overnight, Merc usually take >2 hours, some, like the later JLR stuff can be done OTA. The problem is that the infotainment systems are now the most complex part of the vehicle.I can't believe it isn't, surely Bluetooth is the same whatever device it is on ? I'll try the USB update route.
Amazing how much things have moved on since 2012, the last time I bought a vehicle.
Thank you all for your help.
