Entune 3.0 with Service Connect
RAISING THE BAR
Toyota continues to raise the bar in customer satisfaction and product innovation. Entune Audio Plus and Entune Premium Audio are equipped with the latest version of Entune 3.0, which includes Service Connect. Available on all three trim levels of the 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid, Service Connect will eventually roll out to the entire Toyota vehicle lineup. With Service Connect, owners no longer need to worry about keeping track of required vehicle services. Convenient Vehicle Maintenance Alerts notify owners when maintenance is required and even lets them schedule service appointments via a mobile app or an email.
When a Maintenance Indicator Lamp (MIL) is illuminated showing, for example, “Check Engine” or “Check ABS,” Service Connect will display a vehicle maintenance alert on the multimedia screen. Customers who have registered their vehicle in Service Connect can contact their dealer to set a service appointment by touching the soft key on the display. The most important resource your shop has regarding properly repairing any Toyota vehicle is Toyota’s Technical Information System (TIS). This is where you’ll find everything you need to know about a vehicle—from trim codes to specific build data—and it will confirm whether the vehicle has Service Connect. Thanks to TIS, users have all product support and repair information right at their fingertips.
SERVICE MODE TEMPORARILY SUSPENDS VEHICLE ALERTS
Service Connect is handy—especially if there’s ever an issue that might otherwise go undetected. One thing to note, however, is that if the vehicle is in an accident and requires repairs, it must be put into “Service Mode” so the owner doesn’t continue to receive vehicle alerts while it’s being fixed. When the vehicle is repaired and ready to go, be sure to reactivate Service Connect.
Toyota’s infotainment system, Entune 3.0, is the easiest way for owners to effortlessly find new destinations with an integrated navigation system or enjoy their favorite stations like Pandora or iHeartRadio. Vehicles equipped with Entune 3.0 Audio Plus and Entune 3.0 Premium Audio keep customers connected with Safety Connect, Remote Connect and Service Connect. To learn more, go to www.toyota.com/entune.
