Toyota Entune is an integrated multimedia navigation and telematics system, providing satellite-based information on traffic, weather, sports scores, stocks, and fuel prices via subscription through SiriusXM, and was built on the existing Toyota G-Book architecture. When connected to a compatible cellular phone running the Entune app, via radio or USB cable, the system provides a browser and other apps, including those from music services such as iHeartRadio, Pandora and XM Satellite Radio. The cell phone app has iOS, Android, and Blackberry versions; to use this feature, a cell phone data plan is required. The system can be controlled with voice recognition, and may include the “Safety Connect” personalization system.
Entune premiered in 2011 on the 2012 model year Toyota Prius v and is available in subsequent years.
The Lexus Enform application suite expands on the technology used by Entune.
Launched in 2017 in the 2018 Toyota Camry, Entune 3.0 is the current iteration of Toyota Motor North America's telematics and infotainment platform. Entune 3.0 is a departure from previous Entune platforms as it is based on the Automotive Grade Linux operating system as opposed to Blackberry QNX in previous versions. As such, it is not compatible with Entune 2.x mobile applications and integrations. However, this operating platform upgrade potentially enables many more third-party developer enhancements by moving to an open-source platform as opposed to the proprietary QNX system used in previous versions.
