Pair your Phone with Entune – Android
Congratulations on purchasing a vehicle equipped with Toyota’s Entune. Your Entune Audio system comes equipped with Bluetooth hands-free calling. This is an ideal way to stay connected to your phone while maintaining full focus on your driving. The Entune system has a bunch of helpful apps and features that we will cover in later blog posts. Today we will be focusing on the specific steps to follow to pair your phone with Entune – Android.
Pair your Phone with Entune
To get started, you want your Toyota running or at least on accessory mode. Next, look for and press the phone button to the upper right of your touch screen.
When your Toyota asks if you’d like to pair a device, select YES. The next screen will show the Toyota in discoverable mode– it is now time to find the car with your phone.
Pull out your Android smartphone, head into settings, and open Bluetooth. Make sure the Bluetooth setting is turned on and scan for devices. Your vehicle will show up under the “available devises” heading. Click your vehicle’s name. A Bluetooth pairing request window will open – click “OK.”
You have the ability to program your Toyota Entune to display a notification when you receive a text message that says READ and IGNORE — when you select IGNORE, the notification goes away. When you select READ, your text message will be read aloud to you. Once your phone gives you the option for this setting, select “Do not ask again”, then choose Yes or No.
The next option your phone will display is for syncing your contacts with your car. This is highly recommended! Your car will only know your contacts while your phone is present and paired with Entune, and this will allow you to make calls to certain contacts via voice command. Select “Do not ask again” and Yes.
Once your Entune display shows an OK tab in the bottom-left corner, you have completed the process necessary to pair your phone with Entune.
Now you can make phone calls by either selecting one of your contacts or manually dialing a phone number.
When you receive a phone call, your radio will automatically turn down and you’ll hear your ringtone over the speakers. On your steering wheel, the button with the phone lifting off of the receiver is how you pick up, while the other is how you hang up or ignore a call.
The button with a speaking face is your voice command button. When you press this, your Toyota will prompt you to make a command and then beep. Once you hear the beep, you can tell it to call any of your contacts, as long as you name the contact exactly the way it is programmed into your phone.
