    Hi All,
    I have had a 2011 TRD OR with/JBL for 1 month. I love everything except for my bluetooth issues. 75% of the calls result in people hanging up because they can't understand me. They say it sounds like I am covering my mouth, or like I'm in a tin can. Its getting frustrating.
    The dealer says they cant duplicate it (of course...).
    I've tried other phones... same thing. I try immediately disconnecting from bluetooth, and everything is fine using the cell phone.

    Any ideas? I have an iphone 4 btw.
    Also, any ideas on how to get the dealership or Toyota to handle this appropriately would be awesome.

    Thanks!

    Cover King Seat Covers, WeatherTech Liners, PopNLock, storage bin locks, N-Fab Step bars, and G4 Elite Tonneau cover.
    Call the dealer on the bluetooth several times on your way over there. Or take the service manager for a ride and have him call his wife on your bluetooth.

    Dunno, I haven't had a problem. But having the service manager ride with you and call his wife is a good idea.
