How to Connect My Phone to My Toyota

New Toyota vehicles come with a ton of connective technologies, and once you connect your phone to your vehicle’s infotainment system, it opens a whole world of possibilities. Still, many drivers near Trevose, Philadelphia, and Bensalem, PA, ask: How do I connect my phone to my Toyota?

Our team at Faulkner Toyota Trevose came up with this guide so you can unlock the full connective potential of your new Toyota.

How to Connect My Phone Using Bluetooth®

Connecting your phone to your Toyota via Bluetooth® is simple. You should start by making sure your phone is compatible. The latest version of the technology is Bluetooth® 5.2, but most modern smartphones have a later version that could also be compatible with your vehicle’s infotainment system.

Once you make sure your phone is compatible, press “MENU” on the touchscreen and select “Setup.” Continue by following these steps:

  • Select “Bluetooth®” and then “Add New Device”
  • Find and select your device’s name on the display screen
  • Check to make sure the PIN on your phone matches the PIN displayed
  • Select “Pair”
  • Once the system confirms the pairing, Bluetooth® is enabled

What can you do once your phone is connected? You’ll be able to make and receive phone calls and even send texts, all while keeping both hands safely on the wheel. You can also wirelessly stream your favorite tunes directly from your most popular playlists.



Pairing Device With Toyota

Connecting a Smartphone to My Toyota

Newer Toyota vehicles all come with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay®, so regardless of which team you’re on, you’ll be able to connect your smartphone to your vehicle’s infotainment system.

The first time you connect to your Toyota with either system, you’ll need to have your device paired with Bluetooth®, so you’re already one step ahead of the game. To connect your phone wirelessly, you’ll follow similar steps for both systems. They are:

  • Make sure your corresponding app is up to date
  • Connect your phone with a USB cable
  • Follow the on-screen prompts
  • Tap Android Auto or Apple CarPlay® on your display
  • Give the wireless connection a moment to establish

Once your phone is connected, you’ll have access to a whole new level of capability. You’ll get to operate your favorite apps right through the touchscreen display. If using an iPhone with Apple CarPlay®, you can now use voice recognition to ask Siri questions or give commands.

How to Use Toyota Remote Connect

Remote Connect lets you stay in touch with your Toyota even if you’re not in the driver’s seat. Connecting your phone or smart device is as simple as downloading an app.

Go to the App Store® or Google Play Store to download the Toyota app. Open it and follow these steps to connect to your car:

  • Sign up to create a Toyota Owner’s account or sign in if you already have one
  • Tap “Activate Remote Services”
  • Check your email for an authorization code
  • Enter the code on the vehicle’s display by selecting “Menu” then “Apps”
  • Tap “Authorization” once the code is entered

Now that your vehicle is registered with Remote Connect, you’ll be able to check fuel levels, lock and unlock doors, and even locate your Toyota in a crowded parking lot, all from your phone or smart device. You can even start your Toyota’s engine to get the climate control working before you step out the door.

Get Connected to Your Toyota!

Now that you know how easy it is to connect your phone to the infotainment system in your Toyota, you’ll be able to keep up with your favorite apps, play the most popular music, and even make phone calls as you cruise through Trevose, Philadelphia, or Bensalem, Pennsylvania.
