I wanted to enable Bluetooth hands-free talk and music streaming in my Corolla Verso and because I’m very pleased with Yatour interface I use in my other car I decided to go down the same route.
For Toyota Corolla Verso 1.8 2005 T3 we need Yatour YT-M06 BTM which is around £70 delivered (Amazon UK).
In order to hook it up we need to access back panel of the car radio unit first, to plug the cable provided by Yatour into CD-changer socket.
It’s not that difficult to get it fitted so I hope this guide will help someone.
First use a knife or spatula to pry and remove side panels
Disconnect cigarette lighter
Continue with plastic panel on left hand side
Removing AC controller
Just two Philips screws and then disconnect two plugs
Finally, radio unit
Two screws on the bottom and two at the sides.
Ideally get a 10mm magnetic nut driver with extension bar as two side screws are no so easy to reach.
CD-changer cable provided in the box:
Plug the white bit into a socket at the back of the radio – there is only one that is matching shape!
Put it back together in reverse order
Plug the other end of the CD-changer cable into Yatour unit. Plug in a Bluetooth module cable as well.
Turn on the radio and press CD twice to switch to Yatour, you can now listen to music from SD card or stream it from your phone.
- Make sure your SD card is formatted with FAT
- Make sure your folders are named appropriately (CD01, CD02, up to CD15 I believe).
- Music is playing in the wrong order? It’s because Yatour disregards file names! File creation dates (timestamp) is what matters, there are tools to set timestamps get around this problem. On Linux you can use `touch` in the loop or something.
- Once phone is paired via Bluetooth with Yatour, in order to receive a phone call press Next (Forward) on the steering wheel. To finish press Next again. To reject keep Next for 3sec.
Here is where I attached Bluetooth module using double sided sticky tabs.Used same pads to secure Yatour unit, I keep it in space between handbrake and gear stick.
