Default 2005 Camry LE Idle speed

I got me a new 05 Camry LE. I was just curious on the idle RPM set at 900.
My previous car '01 Altima is set at 700 +/-50. My other car, '04 4-Runner
SR5 idle RPM is 600. I just find it odd that Camry idle speed at 900
(normal temp).

It's new and on 'break-in' so the ECU is operating in that mode. You do NOT
want a low idle speed while the engine is still new and tight (pistons are
lubricated by oil -thrown- from the connecting rods).

I got my 4Runner '04 also brand new but the RPM is pegged at 600rpm. Are
you saying that the '05 Camry will initially operate on 900 rpm then
automatically drop to lower RPM in time (say after 1000 miles?). By the
way, what's the normal idle rpm (it's not stated in the manual).

I find that if the car is new or throttle body has been replaced/cleaned,
the RPM is high. After a few miles and idle stops the computer detects the
air intake level and the RPM will drop back. mine is about 500 to 600 rpm
on my 2002 Camry LE V6
