'17 Fortuner Radio & Iphone?

Anyone else with a new Fortuner or Hilux have this issue?
New Iphone 7 will not load contacts into the address book - just hangs on this screen.

Yes, sometimes happens to me.

I diconnect and re-connect BT and sometimes it does the trick. Other times I cancel the transfer and my contacts are there anyway...presumably from memory. Really not sure.

I think it is a poor quality unit with poor ergonomics and poor graphical user interface.

Audio is also poor quality.

I would be very interested in a betterquality replcement.

I do not have this issue with my iPhone 6 but I also feel this is a very poor quality radio...especially on the sound side. My Home screen sometimes change to another without me even touching it and the 4 numbers I selected for quick dialled other numbers, even though the name is correct and I have no sync issues! Had to delete and re-add them to fix this issue. Reception quality is also very poor.

If you find a suitable replacement let me know :)
