Lexus UX

Welcome to the world of Lexus, where luxury and innovation intertwine to create an exceptional driving experience. As you embark on your journey with your new Lexus, one of the first steps you’ll want to take is to link your phone to the vehicle’s infotainment system. This will allow you to enjoy a seamless connection, enabling you to make hands-free calls, stream music, and access a variety of apps right from your car’s touchscreen.

Preparing for the Pairing Process

Before you begin the pairing process, ensure that your phone’s Bluetooth functionality is enabled. You can usually find this setting in the “Settings” or “Wireless & Networks” menu on your phone. Additionally, have your phone’s PIN or passcode ready, as this may be required during the pairing process.

Pairing Your Phone via Bluetooth®

  • Access the Infotainment System: Press the “Menu” button on the infotainment system’s touchscreen. Select “Setup” and then choose “Bluetooth®” from the list of options.
  • Initiate Pairing Mode: Select “Add New Device” to initiate pairing mode. Your Lexus’s infotainment system will start scanning for nearby Bluetooth devices.
  • Select Your Phone: Once your phone appears on the list of available devices, tap on its name to proceed with the pairing process.
  • Enter PIN or Passcode (if prompted): If prompted, enter your phone’s PIN or passcode on both the infotainment system and your phone to confirm the connection.
  • Confirm Pairing: Once the pairing is complete, a confirmation message will appear on both the infotainment system and your phone.
  • Select Phone Features: You may be presented with options to choose which phone features you want to enable for Bluetooth connectivity, such as phone calls, audio streaming, and contact sharing. Select the desired features and proceed.

Additional Pairing Methods

Depending on your Lexus model and year, you may have additional pairing options available. These may include:

  • QR Code Pairing: The infotainment system will display a QR code. Scan this QR code using your phone’s camera to initiate pairing.
  • Touch Initiation: Simply touch your phone to the designated area on the infotainment system to initiate pairing.
  • Voice Recognition: Use voice commands to initiate and complete the pairing process.
  • Enjoying the Connected Experience

    Once your phone is paired with your Lexus, you can access a variety of features through the infotainment system. These include:

    • Hands-free phone calls: Make and receive calls using the car’s microphone and speakers, keeping your hands on the wheel.
    • Music streaming: Play music from your phone’s music library or streaming services through the car’s audio system.
    • App access: Access compatible apps, such as navigation, messaging, and weather updates, directly from the infotainment system.
