I love technology and there is nothing I have more than Apps! When I found out I was being given the opportunity to test drive a Toyota Sienna as part of the #SiennaDiaries I couldn’t wait to try out the Entune® App Suite! I was giddy like a school girl to put it to good use on our road adventures. If you’ve never heard of this, it is a revolutionary in-car multimedia experience that keeps you and your 2012 or newer Toyota connected to some of your favorite apps. Our Toyota Sienna has this capability.
The Entune App Suite is a collection of popular mobile applications and data services integrated with select 2012 or newer Toyota vehicles. Entune App Suite is included with your vehicle, at no additional or annual charge. Once the phone is connected to the vehicle using Bluetooth® wireless technology or a USB cable, Entune’s App Suite features are operated using the vehicle’s controls or, for some services, by voice recognition.
You can play with apps like PANDORA (MY FAVORITE), Bing, Movietickets.com, Open Table, iHeartRadio and more right on your dash board navigation system!
If your Toyota is equipped with the Display Audio Multimedia system then it is required to cable all iPhone mobile digital devices to the USB port. This requirement allows the Display Audio Entune system to operate with full functionality and it also recharges all iPhone mobile digital devices. Entune App Suite include Bing™, iHeartRadio, MovieTickets.com, OpenTable®, and Pandora®. Entune App Suite data services includes fuel guide, sports scores, stocks, traffic and weather.
This is what it looks like in the picture below when it’s live in our Sienna. Select 2014 and newer vehicles also include Facebook Places and Yelp. Entune App Suite for Prius Plug-in Hybrid Advanced model and RAV4 EV Applications also include Charge Management, Charge Station Locator, Remote Climate, Vehicle Finder and Eco Dashboard.
We used it on our last road trip to Disneyland and we listened to PANDORA all the way to the park. We jamned to Michael Jackson, Disney theme songs, and all our awesome playlists popped right up. It’s so convenient to be able to access those through your car. It allows you to take your music and entertainment where ever you go!
It’s just another great feature of the Toyota Sienna!
