    Hi, I changed from ios to android. I have paired the android phone to rav4 via bluetooth. If I have selected audio>bluetooth, I can hear phone music, take call, and listen to directions.

    However, when I have audio>radio selected (the phone still paired), the bluetooth doesn't become active in case the phone wants to communicate, e.g., directions. It used to work fine on ios, so I feel being new to android, I am missing a setting. Has anyone else encountered this and knows how to make this work?

    thanks,
    -John.
