What is Entune Multimedia?
Many of the features and technologies that we look at in our weekly How’s This Work articles are pretty generic, like last week’s glance at traction control. But this week we thought we’d get a little more specific by looking at Entune Multimedia, which is Toyota’s integrated multimedia, navigation and telematics program found on the infotainment system. Almost every manufacturer in the market offers their own spin on infotainment, and Entune Multimedia is Toyota’s take.
[ LAST WEEK: How does traction control work? ]
Toyota Entune Multimedia offers a complimentary subscription to its apps and data services, all thanks to the Entune App Suite. It allows you to do a host of things that normal infotainment systems can’t, like access your audio playlists, plan your whole evening and get step-by-step directions. With voice recognition, it can even listen to you while you drive, making it safer to use.
Toyota Entune Multimedia Apps & Features
Thanks to Bluetooth capability and the Entune App Suite, Entune Multimedia greatly enhances the convenience of sitting behind the wheel. With a voice-command button installed in the steering wheel, connecting your phone to Entune via Bluetooth allows you to make hands-free calls or play your music straight from your phone through the speaker system. If you have an iPhone, you can even utilize Siri Eyes Free.
There are also a host of third-party apps that can be accessed through the Entune App Suite. Things like Pandora, Slacker and iHeart radio can give you the freedom of music without playing a premade playlist. DestinationSearch, Yelp, MovieTickets.com and OpenTable help you plan your evening, while other apps like Facebook help you stay connected.
We’ve only begun to scratch the surface of all that Entune Multimedia and the Entune App Suite can offer. It allows you to check local traffic and weather, find and compare fuel prices, make reservations and buy movie tickets and even more. If you have any questions about how Entune works in Toyota vehicles, be sure to give us a call and we’d be happy to help you out.
