If you want to stay connected while enjoying impressive new technology features, Toyota has just what you need. Toyota Entune™ Remote Connect is an innovative new feature that comes standard on select Toyota vehicles. It’s integrated into the Entune™ 3.0 Audio Plus and Premium Audio Multimedia Systems that you have access to via the all-new Remote Connect app, which is available for Android and iOS devices.
With Remote Connect, you can access key features and functions of your car from the convenience of your smartphone. Savannah Toyota has your guide to some of the amazing functionality. What’s even better is that all of this can be done anywhere in the world as long as the vehicle and phone have cellular coverage.
Lock and Unlock allows you to lock or unlock the vehicle’s doors from anywhere. If the doors aren’t opened within 30 seconds of using this feature, then the vehicle will automatically re-lock on its own.
Remote Engine Start and Stop allows Bluffton drivers to warm up their vehicle during the winter, or make sure it’s cool and comfortable during the hot summer days. Tap the large start engine icon on the app to get started. Once started via the app, a 10-minute timer begins. If you’re not inside the car before the time ends, the engine will shut back off. Tap the large icon to shut the engine off.
The Vehicle Finder tool is excellent if you have forgotten where you parked. Tap the Vehicle Finder on the app, and a map will show the vehicle’s location.
The Vehicle Status Function allows Bluffton drivers know if the trunk, doors, or windows remain open, as well as how much fuel is in the tank.
The Guest Driver Monitor function lets you monitor the vehicle when someone else is driving, like a friend, family member, or a valet attendant parking the vehicle. You have the option to store customizable profiles for up to five guest drivers.
As long as you have a vehicle with Entune™ 3.0 Audio Plus or Premium Audio, as well as a compatible smartphone, you will just need to download the app. Once you do that, follow the steps below:
You are all set! You can now use the Entune™ 3.0 Remote Connect app and all of its high-tech features.
