Toyota | Lexus Bluetooth Interface - BT45-TOY
Overview: The USA Spec BT45-TOY is a Bluetooth Phone & Music Interface for select
Toyota, Lexus, and Scion vehicles (with or without JBL factory systems). The BT45-TOY
lets you add Bluetooth hands-free communication and wireless music streaming to your compatible
vehicle's factory radio. The BT45-TOY includes a hide-away
module, external microphone, radio harness, and T-harness.
Wireless Audio Streaming: The BT45-TOY supports Bluetooth Profiles A2DP and AVRCP
for wireless audio streaming from a Bluetooth enabled device that can also be controlled from
the buttons on your vehicle's factory radio or steering wheel. You can stream music stored on your
Bluetooth enabled device or stream music apps (such as Pandora, SiriusXM Radio, iHeartRadio, etc.)
that are playing on your Bluetooth device to your vehicle's sound system (all speakers will play).
You can even skip tracks from your vehicle's factory radio steering wheel controls (other control
functions will have to be done from your Bluetooth enabled device). You can control the volume
of the music being streamed via your factory radio and steering wheel controls, or the Bluetooth device.
Note: Your Bluetooth enabled device must also support A2DP for audio streaming through
your vehicle's sound system and AVRCP to control the Bluetooth device from your vehicle's
radio or steering wheel controls.
Hands-Free Communication: The BT45-TOY supports Bluetooth Profile HFP for hands-free communication
from your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone, so you can take (answer/end) phone calls through your vehicle's
factory radio. Your music
will be muted and an audible ringtone will be heard through your vehicle speakers when there is an incoming
call. The BT45-TOY will automatically switch to Bluetooth mode when there is an incoming call
(even if your factory radio is turned off). The BT45-TOY uses advanced technology to turn your radio on
and switch to the correct source to help you never miss a call while driving again. You can even have the
BT45-TOY announce the caller's phone number through your sound system; and for most text-capable radios
if you miss the announcement, you can view the caller's phone number on your factory radio's display
(some text capable radios will only list 8 or 9 digits of the phone number).
Note: You will continue to use your mobile's phone touchscreen or keypad to make calls. The
BT45-TOY only allows you to answer/end calls from your factory radio or steering wheel controls.
Once you make a call from your mobile phone, you can carry on the conversation hands-free through
the included microphone and your vehicle's factory sound system.
External Microphone: The BT45-TOY includes an external microphone to carry on your side
of the conversation (the caller's voice will be heard through your vehicle's speakers). The external microphone
provides better performance in noisy environments than the integrated microphone found in many factory
or aftermarket head units. The microphone is fitted with a 10' cable terminated by a 3.5mm connector that
connects to the BT-45-TOY module. The microphone features an integrated, self-adhesive mounting bracket
to mount the mic to your dash or windshield.
Note: The microphone measures 0.625" (w) x 0.8125" (h) x 1.25" (d).
