More details on the USA Spec Toyota Bluetooth® Interface
Overview: The USA Spec BT35-TOY is a Bluetooth Phone & Music Interface for select Toyota, Lexus, and Scion vehicles (with or without JBL factory systems). The BT35-TOY lets you add Bluetooth hands-free communication and wireless music streaming to your compatible vehicle's factory radio. The USA Spec BT35-TOY includes a hide-away module, external microphone, radio harness, and T-harness.
Wireless Audio Streaming: The BT35-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 USA Spec BT35-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 BT35-TOY will automatically switch to Bluetooth mode when there is an incoming call (even if your factory radio is turned off). The BT35-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 BT35-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 BT35-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 USA Spec BT35-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-35-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).
Bluetooth Compatibility: USA Spec is currently working out a list of fully compatible devices. The current list of successfully tested devices include the iPod touch (3rd/4th gen), iPhone (3G/3GS/4/4S/5), iPad (1/2/3), Android G2, Galaxy, HTC MyTouch, Desire, and Sony Ericsson W518a (as of 9/26/2012). You will initially need to pair your Bluetooth device with the BT35-TOY, before operation. The BT35-TOY can pair up to 8 devices, but will only connect to 1 device at a time.
Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the USA Spec BT35-TOY. Please refer to the USA Spec website for the latest compatibility listings.
Vehicle Compatibility: The USA Spec BT35-TOY is compatible with select 98-2012 Toyota, Lexus, and Scion vehicles with or without JBL factory systems (as of 1/18/2012).
- For Toyota:
- For Lexus:
- Please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car for your vehicle's specific compatibility.
Dip Switches: There are 4 dip switches that will need to be configured to match the make, model, and year of your compatible vehicle.
Installation: The USA Spec BT35-TOY plugs into the back of your Toyota, Lexus, or Scion factory radio. The factory cable gets unplugged from the factory radio and the included T-harness (CAS-TA) takes it place on back of the factory radio. Then the factory cable and the interface harness (CAS-TY35) plugs into the T-harness. The interface harness also plugs into the USA Spec BT35-TOY. Finally, connect the external microphone to the BT35-TOY's mic input and mount the microphone to your dash or windshield.
Note: An additional USA Spec adapter (sold separately) may be required to install the BT35-TOY in some Toyota, Lexus, and Scion vehicles.
