Entune gets an upgrade: what to expect

Toyota recently announced an upgrade coming to their Entune multimedia system, which current (and future) users are sure to appreciate. If you've never heard of Entune, it's Toyota's way of decking out your car with technology and entertainment. Originally available in 2011 in certain Toyota vehicles, Entune can now be equipped in most Toyotas, and offers a touchscreen display built into your stereo system, with the ability to quickly access a suite of useful applications (such as Bing, Pandora, iHeartRadio, etc). In addition, there are several different systems available, with premium versions offering features like navigation and the ability to play DVD's while the car is parked.

Entune upgrade, 2014 Tundra, Technology


If you currently have a Toyota with Entune, the big news is that it will no longer require a subscription, effective immediately! For future Toyota owners, the upgraded version of Entune will be available starting with the 2014 Tundra (and then make it's way into the next versions of the Sequoia, 4Runner, Tacoma, RAV4, Highlander, Corolla, and Camry). This upgrade will include new features such as:


  • Enhanced voice recognition
  • Improved navigation capabilities, such as Tollbooth Guidance and Speed Limit Display
  • Save up to 2,500 contacts in phone storage, now with image display as well (previously 1,000)
  • New Yelp and Facebook Places apps available
  • Ability to customize homescreen in certain sections
  • Customize arrangement of apps and audio menu screens
  • Cache radio feature that lets you "pause" live radio, up to 20 minutes.
  • Color touchscreens with up to 8'' display screen size
