The days of a single radio dial on our dashboard are long gone. With technology constantly at our fingertips, our vehicles are evolving into machines capable of guiding us through traffic, giving us suggestions on where to eat and alerting emergency services if trouble occurs. Do you want more from your infotainment system? See what Toyota is doing to take your car radio to a whole new level with the release of Toyota Connected Services..
First things first, Toyota Connected Services (previously known as EnTune 3.0) begins with an audio system, because what’s more important than being able to listen to your favourite music through incredible speakers while you drive? TCS delivers a wonderful experience to your ears with the use of JBL Premium Audio. This sound system is the perfect platform for features like HD Radio and Sirius XM, both of which are included on new Toyotas.
Working as the info to your “tainment”, TCS comes loaded with apps like Traffic, Yelp, Weather and Fuel - all of which help keep you in-the-know as your drive. All iPhone owners will be thrilled to learn that staying connected is as simple as plugging into a USB port with Apple CarPlay, a feature that puts your phone’s screen right on your dash, along with Bluetooth capabilities for hands-free controls. Premium Toyota Connected Services subscribers also gain access to their own personal assistant with Destination Assist Connect -- a service that provides a live agent on-call to help you determine where you should go next.
The real beauty of Toyota Connected Services is what it can do for your family. Working to keep you protected, this technology gets you quicker roadside assistance, an easy-to-press button in case of emergencies and even automatic notification to our call centre should your airbags ever go off. This centre is open 24/7 and will contact emergency services if they do not hear a response from the vehicle. Features like this can save lives, which is what Toyota’s thorough engineering is all about.
If you’re ready for smarter vehicles packed with luxuries, conveniences and a focus on road safety, the 2020 Toyota lineup has a ride for you. For the full experience of TCS, look to the following models:
For those looking for a greener vehicle, the Hybrid versions of the Camry, Corolla and RAV4 feature the latest version of Toyota Connected Services as well. Try out the tech for yourself by visiting Whitehorse Toyota or book a test drive now to get inside even sooner.
