Bluetooth on 2010 Limited W/ Nav

Hi, new member here. I just purchased a 2010 Limited with navigation for my daughter. As I was sitting in the vehicle at the dealer I noticed that it didn't appear to have Bluetooth. There are no phone controls on the steering wheel and I couldn't find a Bluetooth menu in the navigation setup as in my other Toyota's. This really surprises me being a limited model with a factory nav system. The dealer is doing an aftermarket install for me. Am I missing something here?

BTW, I was glad to find this forum. We are a loyal Toyota family and have a 4Runner, Land Cruiser, and Tundra. I frequent and enjoy the other forums for those vehicles.

Thanks.

In 2010 Bluetooth was not available with navigation. I have the Blu Logic system and it works great. Mine was already installed in the car when I bought it new. It is also covered by Toyota's 3/36 warranty.

Thanks for the reply. I talked to the dealer (it's a Honda dealer) about this and they looked the Blu Logic up and said it would work with the nav but would disable the MP3 and USB input options. This if for my daughter and I can see where she would probably want to connect her iPhone for music. Is this true?

I don't think so, the BluLogic plugs in between the head unit and the speakers and passes all other signals straight through. Besides, you can stream your music wirelessly to the BluLogic from the phone via Bluetooth.

Thanks guys for answering these questions so quick. Probably could have figured out most of this on my own with more research but I was in a hurry as I wanted to be able to cancel the order for the dealer install. I did just cancel it and I will order the BluLogic part number PT923-00097 on my own.

I have the same problem. Just got a 2010 Limited with the Nav and was expecting it to come with Bluetooth. I'm pretty surprised that it doesn't. Anyway, does anyone currently have the aftermarket (BluLogic) bluetooth with the factory navigation? I'm reading on eBay postings that it's not compatible with the nav but thought I saw somewhere that it WILL work. I am concerned with losing functionality on the MP3 (iPod). Thanks for your help.

I have the BluLogic with factory navigation and they are compatible. You can play MP3 files on your phone using the BluLogic without any problem.

I would rather use the iPod as that's where I have all of my music. Do you know if that would still work?

Factory NAV, BluLogic, and Toyota iPOD integration kit are all 100% compatible.
