The Toyota Venza is a mid-size crossover wagon that was originally released by Toyota in the 2009 model year. The Venza features a Bluetooth-enabled audio system that allows you to connect the Bluetooth on your iPhone and make and receive your iPhone's calls over the vehicle's audio system. Initially you need to set up or pair the Bluetooth on your Toyota Venza's audio system with the Bluetooth on your iPhone.

Tap the "Settings" icon on your iPhone and then select the "General" option. Tap "Bluetooth" and then move the Bluetooth switch to the "On" position.

Stop and park your Toyota Venza. Switch the engine to the "On" position.

Press the "Talk" button on your Venza's steering wheel. The first time you use this feature Toyota's Bluetooth system will ask you to state a name for your Bluetooth phone. Say the name you want the system to use for your iPhone. Press the "Talk" button and say confirm.

Enter the passkey on your iPhone. Your Toyota Venza audio system will display the passkey on the stereo's screen and will also read the passkey out loud.

Wait while the Toyota Venza Bluetooth pairs with your iPhone. When the process is complete, you will see a Bluetooth symbol displayed on your stereo's screen. You can now make and receive your iPhone's calls using the audio system in your Toyota Venza.


The Toyota Venza will automatically recognize your iPhone after the initial pairing process.
