Do I have to "turn on" bluetooth on my 2010 Tundra? My Droid isn't recognizing my truck, but the Droid will try to pair with cars that are nearby. The bluetooth signal that is shown in the owner's manual that should show on the radio, isn't there on my radio. Any suggestions?

do you have controls on the steering wheel?

if yes, follow the directions, if all else fails take it back and have the dealer do it. Thats what Ive had to do a few times (had to change phones for work).

I do have controls on the steering wheel and ii have followed the directions in the OM probably 15 times in the past two days. I know it is probably something simple, but I can't figure it out. I may have to take it back to the dealer.

That's what I had to do and need to again. Something about the phone picking up the reception from the radio (bluetooth). I make my saleperson do it each time (make him earn that check he got).

Push the BT button on your steering wheel...then push the talk button on the steering wheel and say phone setup. Next make sure your Phone is searching in BT mode. Next follow the directions of what the robot lady says. Remember everytime you have to do a command you have to push the talk button wait for the beep and say whatever command prompt you need...also you can look into your tundra manual it usually is located in the glove compartment :lol:

Some phones just have a hard time connecting. Damn conspiracy theories.

It took me about 10 tries to get my gzone boulder to pair with the radio. make sure the phone is in discovery mode and try pairing, when it is found it will show up as car multi-media.

I have the Droid. I was able to just follow the prompts from the Tundra bluetooth. When it comes time for the truck to search for the phone, you need to make sure the Droid bluetooth is turned on AND then you have to press "scan for devices" from the wireless and network settings.

Well, it took 2 salesmen, one assistant manager in the service department, the service manager, a sales manager and two hours before I walked out to my truck, attempted to pair the phone one last time before it worked. I still have no idea what was going on. I asked if I could try to link my phone to a new Tundra just to see if it would work and it connected on the first attempt.

The assistant manager paired his phone, but couldn't get mine to pair. Then the service manager tried my phone with the same result. Every employee wanted to blame the phone, even though it would try to pair with every bluetooth device that happened to be in the area (including the Tundra I mentioned earlier).

I have no idea what changed that allowed it to pair, but it is paired now and is working fine.:noidea:
