"Keyboard" special characters - how?

Recommended Posts

I'm sure this can be done (I did search and found reference to typing email addresses being "torture") but last evening, when trying to register my MM system, I could see no way to get the "@" symbol on the Toyota on-screen keyboard for my email address and password.  Letters, upper & lower case, and numbers, yes, albeit painfully slowly. Anything else, no. So, please can someone explain how I might do this?  TIA

(I ended up registering the device online, using the device ID - and even that was a pain as the screen font in the car doesn't differentiate between "l" (thats upper case i) and "I" (thats lower case L).  Nor does this forum!)

It's there somewhere but I agree that the keyboard on the infotainment system is awful. Why do we have to flip between letters and digits for instance? At least have a temporary shift function so that after selecting a digits it automatically reverts to letters.

Out of curiosity I went looking for the @ sign today - you need to "Change type" and select the "123" screen where there are numerals and a few other unusual characters.

For English language Speakers all we appear to need are the ABC and 123 screens.
Other screen "types" appear to be for various foreign language keyboards.
