Help With Bluetooth Connection!


Recommended Posts

Can someone help me sync my Palm Centro with my 2007 Rx 350? I had a Sanyo before and had no problem syncing to my Lexus. I've tried everything and have no place to turn! I've followed the directions of my phone manual and my phone even says my it has synced but the screen on my Lexus says it hasn't connected. Thanks!

If your Palm is a 700 series this will probably work. If it is not you will not be able to connect your Palm.

Pair your Palm just as you have been doing. When your Palm says that is connected but the car doesn't show that it is connected simply dial a number from your Palm. The system will then recognize the connection and the Palm with be connected and you will have the call come through the sound system. Then stop and restart the car to verify that it is making the connection at start up. Be sure that you have made your Palm visible and trusted.

I hope this helps. Please post a reply of your experience.

I have bluetooth problem with Nokia 8800. Have to fully reconnent every time I get in car. Has anybody faced with the similar issue ?

What do you mean by 'fully reconnect'? My Motorola RAZR connects automatically each time the car is started, as long as Bluetooth on the phone is powered on..

I just got 09 RX350. Tried to connect Palm 700p and iPhone - both connect but DON'T register, meaning I can talk through the car speaker, but the bluetooth screen on lexus shows that no phones are registered, although after restarting the car I can still talk through bluetooth. Also, I can only connect 1 phone at a time. If i tried to connect another phone, the first one disconnects. When I was testdriving RX 400H, iPhone connected and registered. Very annoying. Any ideas?

I have the same problem with my RX 350 '09 - iPhone and Palm treo 700. Very annoying, especially after the no-cell law in California. Any help would be appriciated.

OK the fix is simple.

First turn off your phone.

Then turn on the blue tooth feature for both the phone and car.

Once you put in the pass key in the phone, hit ok.

The phone should say that it recognizes the car.

The Car will say its still not connected.

Then turn on the phone and dial a number.

It shouls connect. It work with my Centro and LS460.

This worked great. I must have read both Lexus and Palm manual for over an hour trying to figure it out. They were no help, but your suggest worked wonderfully.

Next time I'm coming right to the forum.

2010 was the first model year that Bluetooth A2DP audio streaming was available in the RX. The iPhone 5 cannot sync its phone numbers with a 2007 RX nav system - you can view which features do work at https://secure.drivers.lexus.com/lexusdrivers/info/my-lexus/resources/bluetooth.do,
