Bluetooth

Answered

No matter what I try I find that my new Pixel 2 XL will not pair and connect with my standard issue radio in my 2015 Toyota Corolla. My old Microsoft Windowsphone  had no problem, and when I recently tried my sons iPhone 7 I connected it in less than a minute. But no luck with my new Pixel 2. Any known issues anyone?

Re: Bluetooth

Yes, it is a known issue with both the Pixel and Pixel 2 phones. For some reason they don't like car audio units.
Try the steps suggested in this article to see if you can get connected.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

Try saying "call" instead of "ring".

Re: Bluetooth

I hate my Pixel. Wont play music, wont connect to wifi, battery dies all the time, blue tooth doesn't work with any of my devices, google mini home is a moron. I thought being a google phone that it would work well with GSuite but no the iphone was MUCH better. As for the whole work profile business - JUST STOP IT ALREADY. I am the CEO, I own the phone, I OWN the business = I have every right to download apps, make changes to MY phone. But no... computer says no. **bleep** Telstra.

Re: Bluetooth

My advice, trying to much at once. Pixel were not made to pair with most cars.

Also your Toyota corolla audio system may also need an software upgrade, ask your local Toyota dealer
