Entune 3.0: Understanding App Suite Connect | Toyota


– This video will go over
the App Suite Connect feature found in Toyota’s new Entune
3.0 multimedia systems. Having a great selection of applications is a key ingredient in the Entune formula and with Entune 3.0, this
gets better than ever. Now called Entune 3.0 App Suite Connect, this system enables head unit integration with various applications through
a connected mobile device, and is now integrated
into all three head units: Entune 3.0 Audio, Entune 3.0 Audio Plus, and Entune 3.0 Premium Audio. Additionally, you no longer
need to register a unique Entune account before getting started. Although, you will still need
to install the Entune 3.0 App Suite Connect and
Scout GPS Link mobile apps, which can both be found on
the app store on iOS devices, and the Google Play store
for android devices. Once the device is paired to
the vehicle over bluetooth, you are ready to begin taking
advantage of some great Entune 3.0 App Suite Connect features. Entune 3.0 App Suite Connect
can be accessed either through the Apps button on
the head unit face plate, or the Apps icon in the Entune
3.0 touch screen home menu. In here, you can see all
the apps you currently have available, as well
as an app catalog button, which opens a menu where you can add, rearrange, and even hide apps as needed. You can undo any of these
changes by selecting Reset, also within the app catalog menu. Rearranging can also be
done through the connected Entune App Suite mobile app. Additionally, with Entune
3.0, all these apps now share the same clean and
modern design language, as well as the same
intuitive user interface. That means that if you know
your way around one app, you know your way around them all. Let’s go over some of the apps in detail. First, you have the
music streaming apps you already know and love: Pandora,
iHeartRadio, and Slacker. These all deliver a near
endless assortment of high quality, personalized music options. Just bear in mind that
many third party services have their own account
systems, and you’ll still need to sign into your account
for that particular app. Your Entune login credentials won’t work. Now, new in Entune 3.0 App
Suite Connect is NPR One, an audio streaming service
offering 24 hour access to public radio news,
stories, and podcasts. Next, we have Yelp, which
provides details and reviews of local businesses like
restaurants and retail stores. Entune 3.0 App Suite
Connect has a Fuel app that locates nearby gas stations and even provides up-to-date fuel pricing. The traffic and weather
apps also provide current, localized information and in
Entune 3.0 Premium Audio Units, receive data from HD radio
with weather and traffic. Need to check the score
of that game going on, or see how your stock
prices are doing today? Well, Entune 3.0 App Suite
Connect has you covered for those as well, thanks to
the Sports and Stocks apps. On Entune 3.0 Audio and
Audio Plus head units, the Scout GPS Link with
map stream and turn stream is available, which provides
full navigation functionality, including turn by turn directions
when paired over bluetooth and full moving maps when
connected via USB and bluetooth. Now, within the setup menu, scroll down to the Entune App Suite tab. In here, there are a few
options you can customize. First is data usage message,
which allows you to specify the frequency of the cellular
data warning message, Auto Detect iPhone App,
which automatically launches the Entune App Suite
mobile app on your iPhone upon connecting to the vehicle, and Connect USB in enhanced mode,
which enables additional features in select apps when
the mobile device is connected via USB rather than bluetooth. Finally, you can also access the app catalog menu from this screen. And that’s it! That’s the scoop on Entune
3.0 App Suite Connect.

  1. Looks clean. But what if you gave 2018 Camry owners Apple CarPlay. We would really appreciate it.

  2. The apps do not show up in my 2020 Tacoma. Also no Apple CarPlay shows up either. Zero information available by Toyota for the 2020 Tacoma and EnTune. Even the dealership couldn’t figure out why it wouldn’t work.
