    I've been setting up the Bluetooth in my 2010 truck with my cell phone, and the "voice guidance" system is waaay too loud for me, but I can't seem to find a way to lower the volume for it. The volume controls work when I'm actually talking on the phone, just not for the voice guidance system. Anyone know how to turn that voice down? Or is there some way to make a call without having to listen to any of the voice guidance commands and without physically using my cell to initiate the call?

    Yes, you can turn it down by using the volume control on the steering wheel. For some reason when you're in "bluetooth mode" and you're using the speakers for your phone you can't use the radio volume knob.

    Seems dumb but I'm sure it's true.

    This doesn't work on mine. No matter if I try using the volume control on the steering wheel OR the volume controls on the radio, volume of the "voice guidance" voice always stay the same, loud. However, when I'm actually talking to someone via Bluetooth, the volume controls on the steering wheel will work then.

    Can you confirm that you can control the volume of the "voice guidance" voice on your truck by the steering wheel volume controls?

    Anyone else have this issue, or is it just my truck?

    Same issue. It's in the manual. But if I remember correctly you get to the menus by pushing the right knob on the stereo when the car is on and the stereo is off. There are a few menus, one is bluetooth volume. The volume control on the steering wheel does nothing for me during commands.

    I cannot adjust the volume of the voice guidance as well and I pushed and turned a bunch of buttons and knobs with no luck. It seems only the volume of the call can be adjusted.

    in the bluetooth setup, one of the option is to set the volume. while you are on the bluetooth menu, use the radio knob to scroll through the options instead of using voice command, its a lot easier.

    Sorry guys, I guess you're right. I just went out and checked, the guidance voice cannot be adjusted with either volume controls.

    The voice command volume is separate from the call volume and can only be changed in setup mode. I think the manual says something about it. Luckily the dealer adjusted mine with delivery. I watched but do not recall the sequence.

    I have an 09 and can adjust the volumne of both the ring and voice by using the sterring wheel controls while on the phone with no problems what so ever.

    Thanks for the tips regarding the manual and the menu system. On page 292 of my owners manual, it tells how to set the volume of the "voice guidance" system. I missed this the first time scanning the manual when setting up my cell phone, and I kind of thought that Toyota's bluetooth would work the same as the bluetooth in our Nissan Murano. I know, I know, RTFM :facepalm:. But it's sure nice to be able to get help from the TW forum members if someone has a question or problem. This is a good site to be on :thumbsup:

    That's just too easy and makes too much sense:) I wish it worked like that on the 2010.
