Can you control the dim on the screen independently from the lights on the truck?

after to looking at it I have to agree. I do not believe it is worth the extra $1800 or whatever. I was wondering about the cost once the 3 years is up and saw a post. $5 does not seem to be too bad if you use it. Not sure what $1800 gets me that I can not do ion Iphone.

Granted the $1,800 is extreme but it's more than just apps. It's also navigation and upgraded JBL sound. The sound is really what makes it worth it. If you wanted to though, you could get better sound for the money with aftermarket stuff but not everyone is into that.

My wife has Entune in her Prius C. We never use it so im glad i didnt fork over the extra cash to buy buy it for the truck.

That and it uses the phones data. When the free trial expires i see little point in paying for something that uses my cell phones data to do the same thing i could do on my phone using the same data. That and my phone has google maps which doesnt require the dealership to update it . Since you cant do anything while moving in the vehicle anyway (not even as a passenger) i might as well just put the directions into my phone and let it guide me to a location if i happen to be lost. As for sound quality i see little difference between the Prius she has and the other Prius we test drove that didnt have it. We have satellite radio and HD radio though. we never used the satellite radio (some people might) and the HD radio sounds about the same i guess (not 100% positive).

for some they may love it. for some they may not. its definitely not a deal breaker if a car doesnt come with it in the future though. might actually be a deal breaker if it did though since i wouldnt want to pay for it.

Either the Prius doesn't get the upgraded JBL sound system (which is probably the case), or you're borderline deaf.

There is a HUGE difference between my JBL sound system and the stock one, and a pretty noticeable difference between standard and HD radio.

But, like you said, some will love it, others will not see the value.

X100 agree. I test drove a Tacoma with stock radio and mine with Entune and JBL. HUGE difference in sound. If you think they sound the same, good for you.....you'll never have to worry about spending money stereo equipment.

Hopefully you don't think standard def and high def TV looks the same!

I had a prius C as a loaner for 4 days with entune.. it is not an upgraded sound system in it.. just the entune head unit.. the prius c entune sound system sounded like crap... my taco entune sounds awesome!

It appears that Toytota has kept us in the dark about the updates and are not sending them in the mail as the should. Finding the file has been a little difficult to do, given that not so many people talk about it either. I am currently downloading the Entune.zip file that is required to perform the update on the entune system. Someone else has taken the liberty to be so kind and upload version 2.1.0 over the net. Click on this link to take you to the download portal:

http://www.sendspace.com/file/00cwar

From there click on "Click here to start download from sendspace"

After the download (which might be a little slow) you need to unzip the file and place it onto a blank USB thumb drive, insert it into your vehicle and you should get a pop up message to update, select yes and let it do it's magic!

My biggest tips for anyone is don't get this crap!

It has been nothing but a disappointment for me so far.

If you want navigation get a kenwood. The JBL uses the tom-tom type soft ware and it sucks but. The kenwood uses garmin. Much better.

And by the way the upgrade to the maps has to be done by the dealer and will cost about $200 for install. What a crock of shit.

The only good thing is the stereo with the sub kicks ass but the rest sucks ass.

I think that's why most people get it. I think you'd be hard pressed to find someone that found it quicker or easier to make reservations, buy movie tickets, check the weather, use pandora, etc... on the Entune than their smartphone that Entune is piggy-backing off of.

I enjoy the nav - it's good enough for me.

I HATE the nav, worst ever. You HAVE to know the zip code before hand when putting in an address. I have had many vehicles with stock nav and that was never the case, could always just do city and street and it would find the zipcode.
