In 2019, we expect our cars to do a whole lot more than just play us the radio. With technology quickly taking over everything we do, smart vehicles are no longer the exception -- they’re the standard! So, how does Toyota stack up against our competitors in the infotainment world? Let’s find out.
Toyota’s tailored infotainment experience, known as EnTune, is already in its third version. This new package of tech features puts the focus on improving the entire driving experience -- not just what comes out of the speakers.
Staying connected has never been more important. Thankfully, Toyota has ways for you to access your phone safely -- even when you’re on the move. Models that offer EnTune are equipped with Apple CarPlay, which displays your phone’s apps right on the dashboard touchscreen and allows Siri to compose messages for you safely as you drive.
To make driving a Toyota even better, the developers of EnTune came up with a feature called App Suite Connect. This group of useful apps brings countless radio stations, traffic conditions, weather updates and nearby gas stations (along with their prices) right to your fingertips. Uniquely Toyota, you won’t find a suite like this on heralded techy auto brands like Nissan, Kia or Mazda.
With the Premium EnTune plan, things go one step further with Destination Assist Connect. Get connected with a real live human to find out where you should eat or what fun attraction is worth stopping at. In the age of automation, it’s still hard to beat one-on-one with an actual assistant.
It’s clear that EnTune is packed with features to make your life more comfortable, but underneath it all, it has your best interest at heart. Should you ever find yourself at the side of a mountain highway needing help, simply press the SOS button to call through to a response centre that already has your GPS information at hand.
In the event that your vehicle’s airbags go off during a collision, the centre will be automatically called to evaluate your condition. This smart technology can also be used to track down your Toyota should someone attempt to steal it.
Ready to try out the tech for yourself? Call, click or stop by and see us here at Vernon Toyota to learn more about the system. We’d love to show you all of the incredible features in person and we’re confident that once you see them, you’ll have even more reasons to drive home in a Toyota!
