ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION
2014 Toyota Tundra

author photo by Nick Palermo
  • Now includes all audio, navigation and phone functions
  • Arrives in 2014 Tundra
  • Offered with subscription-free Entune App Suite

When Toyota Entune launched in 2011, the system allowed users to access apps such as Pandora and MovieTickets.com, and find sports scores, weather, traffic and other information. The newest version of Entune is slated to arrive soon on the redesigned 2014 Toyota Tundra. The system now includes all multimedia functionality, not just apps. Audio, phone and navigation all run under the Entune banner, and the Entune App Suite is now subscription-free.

The new system is more robust, too. Entune offers a more customizable interface than before, so users can rearrange apps and audio menu screens to suit their preferences. Improved HD data services add functions such as predictive traffic reports and weather with Doppler radar. The system's phone book can hold up to four numbers for each contact and manage 2,500 contacts, sorted by first or last name. "Favorite" contacts are easier to mark and save for later.

Toyota will offer four different Entune units. Entune Audio is the most basic, with AM/FM radio, CD, Bluetooth, aux and USB inputs, voice recognition and text-to-speech, all controlled through a 6.1-inch touchscreen. Entune Audio Plus gets a higher-resolution screen; HD radio, traffic and weather; and SiriusXM satellite radio. Entune Premium Audio with Nav and App Suite adds navigation, more weather and traffic capabilities and Cache Radio, which allows listeners to pause or rewind live radio. It also includes the Entune App Suite with new apps such as Yelp and Facebook Places. Finally, Toyota Entune Premium JBL Audio with Nav and App Suite is the top-tier system, with a digital amplifier and JBL speakers.

Toyota previously required a subscription for use of the Entune App Suite, but the arrival of the latest generation of Entune in the 2014 Tundra marks the end of that fee. Not only will new Entune customers get the service at no charge going forward, but even existing users no longer have to pay for a subscription. The only exception is for models that use SiriusXM to provide traffic, weather and sports. Those will still require a satellite radio subscription.

Over the next six months, Toyota will introduce its latest Entune on seven more models: Corolla, Camry, Highlander, RAV4, Tacoma, 4Runner and Sequoia. Remaining models will be updated over the next year.

What it means to you: Toyota Entune is no longer just an item on Toyota's multimedia menu. It's now the automaker's branded infotainment system that offers helpful apps and functionality without a subscription.
