It seems almost daily, the announcement of new products and gadgets. The iPad, the iPad 2, Bluetooth, the Kindle Fire, the Kinect; these are splayed across your television screen and blasted in sound waves throughout your home. But there’s a product that you may not have heard of, one that has flown under the radar, comparable to all these and even more mobile. Entune. Entune is technology, rethought. Sure, we’ve got our smartphones when we’re on the go, but is it really safe to use your apps while you drive? Maybe not if you’re using your iPhone, at least as far as the neighborhood cats are concerned, but with Entune, using your apps in the car is about as safe as it can get.
“What is Entune?” you might be asking yourself. Is it a new phone? A jetpack? A dancing robot? Entune is simply a navigation system, fully integrated and with multimedia capability. What makes Entune different, special, unique, is that it uses a connected compatible mobile phone to gather information. You can get traffic updates and information updates while you’re driving. Sure, other navigation systems can give you this. What other navigation systems can’t do is use the mobile apps on your phone to bring you information. With Entune, you can use Bing, OpenTable, Pandora, movietickets.com, or any other apps you’ve downloaded, all from the screen of your navigation system, right at your fingertips. You can get the weather, news and sports, stocks, traffic and fuel information, and music services all from your phone to your car. Toyota Entune uses either Bluetooth technology or a USB cable along with the installed Entune mobile application to connect your mobile device. It’s even wirelessly upgradable, and incorporates Safety connect telematics system to ensure that the driver and passengers are safe at all times. Entune connects your Toyota to your phone, to you, and to the world, all while you drive. Entune even takes things one step further with voice recognition, so you can keep your hands and eyes on the road while you use your apps. Technology moves fast, but Entune allows you to keep up in your Toyota. For more information on Entune, and to see how it works, visit http://www.toyota.com/entune/what-is-entune/.
