Most modern Toyota models come with multiple ways to stay connected with your mobile device. This is great for long commutes to work or road trips with the family around Danvers, Peabody, and Salem. Whether you have an iPhone® or Android, there’s a way to connect your phone to your Toyota.

We’ll go over the ways to do so in this guide from Ira Toyota of Danvers. Read through our How to Connect My Phone to My Toyota guide below and feel free to contact us with any questions.


Toyota Highlander Infotainment

Connecting Through Bluetooth® To Toyota

Bluetooth® technology lets you stream music or make phone calls while keeping your hands on the steering wheel and eyes on the road ahead.

In order to set up Bluetooth® pairing, you’ll want to follow these steps:

  1. Press “Menu” on the car’s display screen, then “Setup.”
  2. Double-check that the “Bluetooth” option is turned on for your device.
  3. On the car’s screen, choose “Bluetooth” and then “Add New Device.”
  4. Select the correct name of the device and look for a pin number. Make sure that pin matches the one that appears on your phone. If it does, select “Pair” on the vehicle’s screen.
  5. Once a connection has been formed, you’ll receive a confirmation through your automobile’s infotainment system.

Connecting Through Entune™ Audio to Toyota

Many Toyota vehicles offer an Entune™ Audio system, which lets you use many mobile applications through the car’s display screen—making driving around more convenient than ever.

To use Entune™, make sure to download it onto your smartphone from the app store. Once that’s done, you’ll want to open it and give permission to:

  • Access your location when you’re not using the app.
  • Send you notifications.

You’ll then want to accept the Terms and Conditions, select your region, and either choose to “Continue as Guest” or log in with existing Toyota Owners credentials.

Once that’s completed, pair the phone using the Bluetooth® steps above. Then, that’s it! You’ll get to use a multitude of mobile apps through the car’s display screen during your commutes. If you’re having any issues with this guide, please don’t hesitate to reach out with questions.


Toyota RAV4 Infotainment

Connecting Through Apple CarPlay®/Android Auto™ to Toyota

Finally, you can pair your phone with your Toyota through Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™. Like Entune™, these smartphone integration features let you use your phone’s functions through the vehicle’s infotainment system.

To connect through Apple CarPlay®, make sure that it’s activated on your phone. You can do this by going into Settings > General > CarPlay on your phone. Once that’s done, you’ll want to use a charging cable to plug your phone into the vehicle’s USB port. Make sure the USB port is labeled “Data.” Then, on the car’s multimedia screen, select the “Always Enable” option for CarPlay®.

If you’re using Android Auto™, make sure it’s compatible with your car. Download the Android Auto app on your phone, then connect the phone to the car’s USB port through a charging cable. The “Android Auto” option should then appear on the vehicle’s dashboard display for you to use.
