Everything you need to know about Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ in your Toyota!
Did you know... to help use your phone safely while you drive, Apple CarPlay®1 or Android Auto™1 could be just what you need.
Using the popular Siri® and Google Assistant™2 voice commands, you can access selected features on your phone. To see what it is and how it works, read below:
Stay connected on the move
Toyota’s latest infotainment system brings you the ultimate convenience in automotive connectivity giving you access to some of your favourite apps on your vehicle's touchscreen display, keeping you connected on every journey.
With CarPlay®[C12] as your copilot, you’ll have your favourite apps from your iPhone®[C3] accessible through the multimedia touchscreen. To make life even easier, if you’re using Maps® to get directions, your passengers can change the tunes in Music® from your phone without the map in the dashboard screen disappearing.
Access your apps using voice control so your eyes stay on the road and your hands stay on the wheel.
Catch up on all your favourite podcasts when you can ask for them to be played via voice control during your commute.
Phone calls and messages
Staying in touch is so easy when you can have your text messages read out loud to you. Want to reply? Use voice command to send a text or make a call.
Stay focused and connected with Android Auto™️[C13] by using your voice to access your phone on the move. Listen to music, podcasts or playlists from a wide range of apps and never worry about getting lost again when you have the Google Assistant™ to talk you through your route, door to door, turn by turn.
Need to get the lowdown on your next meeting? Talk to the Google Assistant™️ and get the details for your next appointment, and then have it read your messages aloud to you.
Remember the days when you stopped to get directions from strangers? Now all you have to do is ask Google MapsTM using voice control to get directions.
Music on the move
Cars and music just go together and having your own playlist or albums of choice ready to play any time you like with Google Play Music™ is always a plus.
