  • A constant irritant

    Entune in my 2017 Highlander is bad enough, but this app makes it even worse (if that’s possible). It caches your credentials (good) and tries to log in every time you start your car (uh, ok I guess...but why?). Unfortunately, if it can’t log in for any reason (like your phone has no signal in the parking garage or a rural area), it throws your credentials away and makes you re-enter them. Which, of course, you you can’t BECAUSE YOU HAVE NO SIGNAL!! It also jumps to the foreground and pushes useful apps, like Google Maps to the background. When it is connected, it doesn’t do much. You can stream Pandora, but it’s so clunky it’s easier just to use Bluetooth to stream through the app on my phone. Facebook Locations? Does anyone actually use that? Movie listings? Easier on the phone. Basically, anything that you can do through Entune is easier directly through your phone. So - love my 2017 Toyota Highlander. Already have 40,000 miles on it and it’s not even two years old. But in 2019, when I have 60,000 miles and it’s time for a new one, I’ll be looking hard at the Honda Pilot (which has CarPlay) unless Entune has been replaced.

    UPDATE: the app is much more reliable in connecting to the head unit to provide data when plugged into the car USB port. However, the Toyota entune "system" is still not satisfactory. The worst is the blue tooth. Entune will not reliably retain pairings. You can have both a phone connected for calls and a second device paired for music. However, it is often necessary to go through the head unit's menu system to reconnect and reconfigure them after turning off the car. The head unit will tend to not even remember to connect to the phone for calls when it is the only paired device. You need to unlock the iPhone and manually launch this app most every time it is plugged into the car. I’ve used the same version of the app/same iOS version with both an iPhone 4s and 6s+ and there was no difference. I’d love to get rid of all these Toyota apps and replace them with just carplay. Toyota initially promised carpal and then changed their minds. I’d be happy if they just make the steering wheel dedicated to talk to siri when an iPhone is connected.
  • Functional after some effort, not easy to use

    This app appears formatted for earlier iphones, maybe iphone 5, and has low functionality & interactions, like an app built for ios 6. Basic actions like viewing eco driving history require 4-digit pin EVERY time, despite the phone being unlocked with Touch ID. Note: Toyota makes separate apps for different models and years- but Toyota tech support is unaware, just do google searches to find out compatibility. Toyota puts painfully little effort into the apps, which there are at least three- and apps are specific to models years, and calling Toyota tech support is useless: I was at first told none of the apps will work with my 2017 prius. So I go online and create a “safety connect” account which I don’t want, but this is required for the app. The app doesn’t enable any car-related features, and only shows you login screens for iHeartRadio, Pandora, etc, UNTIL you enter your Safety Connect “contract ID,” which was not supplied with the online account. 2nd call to Toyota takes over 1 hour where I was first told there is no such “contract ID,” eventually a supervisor supplies it, noting it won’t be enabled for 24 hours. ALSO the number must be formatted with dashes for the app to accept. Only after configuring app with this contract ID does it enable three car-related functions- cabin heat, charging status, and eco record. Even then, the data transfer is slow and the graphics simplistic.
  • Connects to car, after that it's pretty much abysmal

    The Entune app *technically* functions, in that it can be used to play audio from my iPhone in my 2012 Prius. It doesn't exactly function consistently (frequently has to be disconnected and reconnected repeatedly to get past the "loading" screen), precisely (forget about your passengers watching videos, given the half-second audio lag), or when intended (connecting your phone to charge the battery? Better hope you want to hear the beginning of your iTunes playlist every time!), but it does function in the most basic sense of the word. Honestly, you may be better off just buying an audio-to-radio-frequency adapter and skipping the audio interface entirely. At least the driving directions through Entune could be a nice help if you don't already have a smartphone with that functionality, but the interface there is pretty weak as well. I guess the Pandora connection is a nice touch?

    I've had my 2017 Highlander a few months now and the head unit/ smart phone integration is by far the worst aspect. In fact this setup is only marginally better than my decade old car this Highlander replaced. The Entune app doesn't really do anything to enhance the usability of my iPhone in the car. Bluetooth connectivity handles calls and doesn't require Entune. Also I'm not sure what genius decided that every time I connect my phone to my car I want the first alphabetical song in my iTunes library to play automatically but I'd like a few minutes with them to discuss why this is such a terrible idea. And there is no setting to prevent this. Terrible user experience. Why is there no support for CarPlay? Even with the limited and fairly useless apps Toyota includes Within Entune there is no Podcast app. Why? Does Toyota live in the 21st century? If Toyota would join the rest of the automakers and add CarPlay support into recent and new models this would be them recognizing what would make customers happy. I love my car but routinely search online for head unit replacements FOR MY BRAND NEW car. Think about that Toyota. I just bought your product, which performs its primary function as a reliable car extremely well, but one of the most used auxiliary features is so far below your typical quality I'm willing to pay to have it ripped out and replaced.

    This app is such an insult on everybody spending >20k on a new Toyota. I was excited getting my new 2017(!) Toyota. Knowing that car manufacturers are a little bit behind the times, I expected at least level of ten years ago. The whole electronic/entertainment system is just a joke. First of all FINALLY FIX THIS STUPID BUG THAT THE APP IS ALWAYS LOGGING OUT! Thousands of people are complaining and you’re just ignoring them?? Furthermore I can just second what pretty much everybody is saying: this app is unstable, unreliable and pretty useless. Why are you ignoring your customers? Why aren’t you finally implementing a setting that music does not start every time you get into the car and connects to the cellphone? A couple of other suggestions to reach at least year 2000: - stop infantilizing your customers by deactivating all functionality while car is moving!! Or don’t even provide a setting! Google maps is so much handier - make a real connection to the car ... like google be Apple car connect - Google and Waze have real time traffic updates, are faster, more versatile , I can enter anything as supposed to an address and it will find it. Why should anyone clear in mind bother with this piece of crap? - ability to “send” a location to the car from google maps - Ability to lock/unlock car via smartphone over Bluetooth (NOT internet /cloud) Uvm
  • Issues with Voice Command & TuneIn App

    By Maverick on the Radio
    I only mention this recent issue since their latest update (May 2018), because it could potentially be a hazard while driving. Whatever they did with the update, the voice command suddenly stopped working. This means people could potentially try to call someone manually, taking their eyes off the road. It’s been a couple of weeks now since I reported this, and it’s something that needs to be fixed ASAP. Other issues when hitting the voice command button on their steering wheel, it sometimes cut off audio of radio. Causing user to now fiddle with the dashboard radio to get it to work again. RECOMMENDATION: Add the TuneIn Radio app. More radio stations are on TuneIn than iHeart, and it would be helpful to be able to simply do voice command to play station on TuneIn, or simply touch a station on the present.

    This app has been pretty terrible from the start. Even the look and feel of the app is from way old versions of iOS. Has no one informed Toyota that there have been some improvements to the user interface elements that should go into an iOS app since about seven years ago? The most frustrating part of this app is that you lose your login credentials periodically, and for no reason, you must re-login to the app which is hard to do when you're trying to start your car and go somewhere! This is a totally lame implementation of something that should be so simple for Toyota to build into their head unit to make it work much better. I do understand the need for a drivers own iPhone to provide needed Internet data for his or her Toyota vehicle; this could be accomplished in so much more of an elegant way. Basically, Toyota has abandoned this app, leaving it for dead.
  • If this App represents the best App Toyota has to offer, what does it say about its cars?

    By Matt-again
    This is one of the most annoying apps I have ever downloaded to my phone. Even though I have set it to remind me only once a drive to sign on, the fact that it does not remember my user name or my password makes it potentially the most dangerous of the apps I still have on my phone. Where is the Touch ID option or for the iPhone X, the facial recognition option? Where is the remember my button? It’s so non friendly. Why not simply connect through Bluetooth and us the phone’s hotspot option or connection to data to update the “Apps” in the car’s computer instead of requiring us to log into some arbitrary account they created? Truly, you Toyota people should be embarrassed at what you’ve put out. Why don’t you look at the number of “1’s” you’ve gotten here and do something?
  • How such a big car company can fail on a simple app

    By martinh_cl
    I have seen kids that write better and reliable apps. How is it possible that entune is not able to keep login credentials when network connection is lost, not even considering the use of fingerprint or face auth? The developers behind entune should be ashamed for this crappy application which makes the whole experience of driving my Toyota Prius V Four 2017 totally disappointing. If I knew this will happen that I will require an app to get internet connection on my radio and gps system I’d rather buy another car. I believe the willing of track users information is totally ruining the toyota car ownership. If someone who read this review is considering buying a toyota car think it twice, it is even endangering drivers because you are not able to verify connection until you are driving.
