What Can Toyota Connected Services Do?
Keeping you connected with your Toyota all begins with the Toyota App. Simply visit your normal app store, download the Toyota App, and you’ll have access to Remote Connect and Service Connect (if equipped), along with the ability to manage your profile, set a dealer preference, manage alerts, and more!
Once you’ve got the Toyota App set up you’ll be able to take advantage of Remote Connect, the ability to control certain functions of your vehicle—like stopping and starting your engine, locking and unlocking your doors, checking on whether your windows or moonroof are open, and more—all from a distance.
If you’ve got an Apple iPhone® 5 or newer, you can take advantage of hands-free access to your phone along with specific CarPlay™ apps right on your Toyota’s touch screen (or with the steering wheel controls). Stay connected with the ability to make phone calls, compose texts, listen to your favourite playlist, and more.
Fear not, if you have an Android phone you’ll still have access to a range of great apps along with the ability to make calls or send text messages. From an easy-to-use interface with larger touch targets, to Google Assistant voice-actions, you can access apps like Google Maps and Google Play Music, among many others.
Navigation with Destination Assist
Upgrade to Destination Assist, and you’ll have 24/7 access to a live Destination Assist agent that can help you find directions to a tricky location, search up businesses for you, and even come up with recommendations for hotels, restaurants, retail stores, or whatever else you’re looking for!
Even with all of the advanced safety features found in your Toyota, Safety Connect is there for you in the event of an accident or any other issues. From quick and responsive emergency assistance thanks to the SOS button, to advanced roadside assistance and the Stolen Vehicle Locator feature, Safety Connect has you covered.
With everything going on in your daily life, it’s easy for something like vehicle maintenance to slip your mind. However, thanks to Service Connect, you’ll automatically receive notifications in your Toyota App as well as your vehicle’s touch screen display if your Toyota detects the need for maintenance, as well as a monthly vehicle health report.
Whether you’re in the mood to hear your team play live, a bit of stand-up comedy, or any music—and we mean any music, from calypso to classic rock and everything in-between—the ad-free digital radio courtesy of SiriusXM has you covered. Enjoy a free 3-month trial in your new Toyota!
