Whether your Toyota Camry is new or old (well, hopefully it’s not too old or it could be time to get an upgrade), you want to get the most out of it. One way to do this is to connect your Toyota Camry to your smartphone via Bluetooth. The latest Camry models include the latest in-car technologies, and so setting up your car’s Bluetooth will allow you to make hands-free phone calls while you drive. If you’re having trouble getting started, let us help you get your Bluetooth connected to your Toyota Camry.

Getting Started

The first thing you do is go to the settings menu on your smartphone and turn the Bluetooth on. Yes, this may sound obvious, but if you’re having trouble getting started, this may be the reason why. Once you know the Bluetooth function on your phone is on, click the “setup” option on the touchscreen of your Toyota Camry. Next, click on “Bluetooth” and then “add new device.”


Once you’ve found the Bluetooth option on your Camry, the car will automatically search for devices nearby and should quickly locate your smartphone as an option, most likely the only option. Meanwhile, your phone will be doing the same thing and most likely locate the Camry as being Bluetooth compatible. Once the phone and the Camry find each other, you will have to accept that connection on both the phone and the car. After that, the display screen inside the vehicle will show that it has been connected to both the phone and audio player.


Once the connection has been made between your smartphone and your Camry, the Bluetooth will automatically download the phone book and contact history from your phone, as well as any audio recordings or music apps that are on your phone. Once all of that information has been downloaded, you can access your phone functions via the phone button on steering wheel or the touchscreen. Using the touchscreen in your Camry, you will be able to look at your phone’s contacts, call history, and text messages. This will help you from being distracted by your phone while driving, which is something everyone should be striving for.


Perhaps the best part of connecting your Bluetooth to your Toyota Camry is the music. Once your Bluetooth and car are connected, simply hit the audio button and you will be prompted to setup Bluetooth audio. The music in your phone should begin playing automatically, with song information showing up on your Toyota Camry’s screen. Your Bluetooth will also be able to play any music apps you have on your phone in your car, including Pandora and iHeartRadio. So once your smartphone and Camry are connected via Bluetooth, not only will you be able to use your phone hands free, but also all your favorite music can be heard in your Toyota Camry any time you want.
