New Yaris and bluetooth music broswing (AVRCP 1.4)


I have a brand new Yaris, my iPhone 4 (iOS 6) is connected via bluetooth and can play music, however I cannot browse through the artists, songs, playlists etc.

If I plug it in via USB the browse button appears and browsing works fine.

I have done some digging on the internet and found that AVRCP is the protocol used to display track names, browsing etc. AVRCP 1.4 enables browsing.

From what I can gather iOS 6 does support AVRCP 1.4, and the manual for the Yaris shows the browse button in the photos.

So my question is, has anyone got a device which does bluetooth browsing in the new Yaris' or does anyone have any definative answer on whether the Yaris supports AVRCP 1.4

Thanks in Advance!

According to the Official Bluetooth SIG group database the iPhone 4 only supports AVRCP 1.0

The entry for iOS 6 does state that it supports AVRCP 1.4 but just because an OS can support a feature doesn't mean that it does on all hardware.

I also checked with my Android phone which only supports AVRCP 1.0 and I get the exact same behaviour as you describe. When plugged into the USB I get browse button enabled, album art and track names. When connected via bluetooth I just see Unknown [1/133].

Edit: Strange!!! Apple says your phone should work, perhaps the Bluetooth SIG database is just out of date?
