OK so I have a 2017 Auris Excel so the infotainment unit has many toys  - street view, weather, parking , Petrol prices...if only I could access them.  I have paired my phone via bluetooth - looking for server, wired USB tether...looking for server, bluetooth tether...looking for server.  in all cases the phone itself will do any internet task but the car is.....looking for server.

HOw do I make this darned thing work?

 

Thanks for any insights

Have you registered the car/headunit on MyToyota and input the MyToyota username & password into headunit

yep tried that as well 😕

& tethering is enabled? It's also possible that the Toyota server is having temporary issues - try again another time.

Hmm

 

If I park right outside the house and have the phone connected to my wifi everything works!  So does it need 4G to make it work on the road?

Yes, unless the car itself has a SIM card (and I don't think it has), you'll need a "4G" connection. from your phone to the phone masts as you drive past them.

Aye, there's the rub.  It never works on the road even though the phone is happy to do google maps etc.  Was hoping for some quick and simple answer but looks like there may not be one  😕

you definitely have bluetooth tethering enabled? tbh streetview, weather, parking & petrol price apps I don't find of much use anyway ...
