I have just taken delivery of a new Toyota Yaris and I cannot make my mobile (Vodafone 625) work with the Bluetooth. I think it is a compatibility problem? I have asked Toyota to supply a list of compatible phones- but they have failed consistently to respond. Could you possibly help?

Car manufacturers always lag behind phone manufacturers in the latest technology. But what FIAT does is issue periodic updates that can be downloaded onto a USB stick, then uploaded into the car's system via the Blue&Me socket. I would guess that currently Toyota is scratching its head. Sooner or later it will sort things out and offer dealer uploads of new compatibilities via the OBDII diagnostics port. Meanwhile, borrow a few friends phones and try pairing them with the car. If you still have an old phone, stick your SIM in it and try that.
