Are you just talking about just Bluetooth, or are you trying to get Android Auto working? Not many people out there with a Solterra yet.

If you're trying to do wired Android Auto, it's very common for it to not work if you don't have a great cable. As far as wireless Android Auto, you might want to make sure that a Pixel 4a and its Android version are supported. My Pixel 4a (5G) works great with Bluetooth and also wired and wireless Android Auto in my Chevy Bolt EUV, so I think you'll be OK.

Sorry about that. Not much help available out there yet. It's a new system for Toyota/Subaru, so maybe it's got some bugs that need to get worked out. All I can suggest is either have a friend test it with a new phone or try using it wired with a known good USB cable. The charging cable that came with your phone would be good for testing.

Yes, got it earlier this week (in UK).
It worked once now right any more.
Android auto is flakey add anything too.
However now basic Bluetooth doesn't work unless a pair a new device each time.
OK Jon, everyone here is waiting for YOUR first impressions.

Down under we are still being told April 23 but my guess is July / August after Toyota's BU. So I need your take on things to keep the froth flowing

Every time I've had a Pixel I have had so many issues... try another Android.

Anyone in EU/UK able to post a charging test 10 - 80 %. I know it isn't the same battery pack but I am just curious if the curve is as linear of a drop as NA tests we've seen so far.

You have to make a profile (in the settings on the multimedia-unit), and then connect the phone. If you drive with the "Guest-profile" you will have to reconnect your phone each time.
You can choose to pair your key(s) to the profile as well.

Thanks Yalla - the profile doesn't always load correctly - which I think is part of the problem, even though I've linked the key, hopefully a software update will resolve at some point.

Hi RoyG - the drive doesn't disappoint! The acceleration from 30 to 50 for is helpful and steering is responsive. Not tried a standing start but don't think the car is 0-60mph class leading by any stretch. Auto steering works well, cameras very useful for pulling out of from blind corners and parking. The mileage range is worrying with the air heater on (for autumn weather) but this is my first EV so probably the same for every EV. Very happy with the car - hope you get yours sooner than the ETA.
