about phone..

Asked by Jul 29, 2015 at 11:25 AM about the 2012 Toyota Prius

Question type: General

I just bought my Prius2....2012. When I plug In my phone does it need an adapter  like  the one in the cigarette lighter i as it did with my Celica? Because the  USB port is in such an inaccessible place, I can't  see what it needed.
Appreciate your help.

Go to this link and register you car. Have VIN ready, you can get a ton of information about your car, service records and there is a Q & A forum similar to this one that has a lot of helpful people. https://ssl.toyota.com/owners/login

Meantime, you can go directly to the explanation from this link. It depends on if you have the navigation package, and more. Pick out which article you need https://auth3.toyota.com/owners/resources/owners-manuals#

Now, after all that, if you have an ordinary cell phone it's no different than your Celica ...if you are talking about just charging the battery. But your Prius has bluetooth and all sorts of tech.
