Technology is always best when it serves a useful purpose and is done thoughtfully. By integrating third party apps that are commonly used on our mobile phones, Toyota has found a practical way to integrate mobile apps to enhance the ownership experience but not contribute to distracted driving. Limiting functions to paging through songs through controls on the steering wheel helps keep drivers focused on the road.
- Having a compatible mobile phone with a data plan;
- Registering at Toyota.com with your VIN and phone number;
- Downloading the Entune app;
- Pairing your phone via Bluetooth to connect to Entune for a seamless experience.
With Entune being a new technology, Toyota is always looking ahead to additional apps that could become part of the system and additional functionality. One thing that Toyota is exploring is voice recognition commands using natural language with contextual English. Such a system would ideally accommodate for accents, natural pauses, etc. that come in conversation so a driver could speak commands to operate Entune.
