and connected to one Bluetooth device at a time. Its compatible with most
Bluetooth-enabled mobile devices such as Apple iPod touch/iPhone/iPad, Android
smartphone/tablet, Blackberry, Windows phone, and more.
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 BT45-TOY.
Bluetooth Hands-Free Communication (HFP): The USA Spec 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.
- Answering a Phone Call: When there is an
incoming call, your factory stereo's music will be muted and an
audible ring-tone will be heard through your vehicle speakers.
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. To answer the call, simply press the
Seek/Tune or CH+ button on your factory radio or steering wheel
control. To end or reject a call, press the Seek/Tune or CH- button
on your factory radio or steering wheel control.
- Dialing a Phone Number: In order to dial a
phone number, you will still need to use your Bluetooth-enabled
mobile phone; you cannot dial a number from the factory radio.
Once you've dialed a number from your mobile phone, then the
call will be automatically transferred to the BT45-TOY and
your factory stereo system.
- External Microphone: The USA Spec BT45-TOY
includes an external microphone to carry on your side of the
conversation, while 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 16' cable terminated by a 3.5mm connector that
connects to the BT45-TOY module; it measures 0.9375" (w) x
0.6875" (h) x 1.625" (d). The microphone has a self-adhesive
backing to mount it to your vehicle's driver-side pillar, head-liner
trim, or dash (do not mount it to the windshield.
Bluetooth Audio Streaming (A2DP/AVRCP): 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; in some cases you can also view
song/artist information on your factory radio's display.
- Wireless Music Streaming: 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).
- Music Control: You can control Play/Pause
and Previous/Next Track functions from your vehicle's factory
radio or 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.
- Song/Artist Information: In many cases, you
can view artist, album, and song title information on your factory
radio's display. In order to view song/artist information on your
factory radio's display, your factory radio and your Bluetooth-enabled
device must meet the following requirements:
- Your factory radio must have a "SAT" button or
"Radio" & "CAT" buttons; a satellite
radio does not need to be activated, nor does the satellite
radio tuner need to be present.
- If you are using a Bluetooth-enabled Apple iPod touch/iPhone/iPad,
then it must be running iOS 6 or higher. If you are using a
Bluetooth-enabled Android smartphone/tablet, then it must be
running Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0) or higher operating system.
- Your device's Bluetooth AVRCP profiles must be 1.4 or higher.
Auxiliary Input: In addition to wireless Bluetooth connectivity,
the USA Spec BT45-TOY is fitted with an auxiliary audio input (3.5mm) for connection
of practically any portable audio device with a headphone jack output or analog audio
USB Charging Port: The USA Spec BT45-TOY features a USB (type-A)
port to charge your smartphone or other portable audio device in your vehicle. Because
the BT45-TOY is a hide-away device, you'll want to purchase a USB extension cable (sold
separately) to make the unit's USB charging port accessible. The USB charging port is
rated at 5V/2.1A.
Note: This USB port is for charging only;
it does not support music streaming.
Dip Switches: There are 4 dip switches that will need to be
configured to depending on which emulation mode works best with your radio (CD
Changer, SAT, MD Changer, etc.).
Installation: The USA Spec BT45-TOY installs under the dash
and behind the factory radio.
