 Description of the problem i want to bring to your attention a concern that is primarily one of safety but which also involves poor and misleading information by toyota related to the blu-logic cell-phone connection system included as a feature on my new 2012 camry hybrid. My concern stems from the fact that the blu-logic system, obviously coined to sound like bluetooth, and even listed on some dealer websites as a bluetooth connection, is misleadingly described as handsfree communication and a handsfree solution in the separate brochure provided by toyota. In actuality, the system as such is at best only 50% ? Handsfree. Only incoming calls may be engaged in without cell phone in hand. Outgoing calls may be initiated handsfree only if ones cell phone itself is equipped with voice-activated dialing, a 4g-type feature i would estimate only a fairly small minority currently possess. So the de-facto reality of the blu-logic system is that it forces most drivers into the unsafe practice of manually initiating outgoing calls by manually dialing with cell phones in hand. But in a deceptive omission, the toyota guides do not even mention the possibility of making calls in this manner. Indeed, the phone-bank rep i spoke to told me, presumably with a straight face, that it was not possible to do so, even though i have accomplished it on several occasions. It is hard not to see this omission of both service and information as a cynical evasion by toyota, part of a cost-cutting effort to appear to offer handsfree in-car cell-phone service, a la bluetooth, while actually providing an unsafe system which forces a driver to use hands to make calls. And part of this evasion appears to include a cover-up when a customer raises the issue.
