Hey everybody I have recently purchased a 2012 Tacoma with Entune and have had a little time trying to figure out a few things. It has great potential, but I feel that we can get more info to the masses as we crack into it more. Here we could post questions to others as well as tips and tricks that worked for you that others may benefit from since Toyota dosen't know how to use the system either. I will start.
I had issues with Entune connecting to variouse media like music, internet, and phone. it would connect sometimes and not others. I learned that my username in the dash unit for my Entune system was not complete and needed my full email like the entune site. The reason it was overlooked was that it sometimes worked. After I updated the correct username the connection status has not given me many problems. If it does, I disconnect from the entune App on my phone and connect again through the dash and when re-established all is well. Again this is rarely the case now.
I have noticed that there is no way to search Bing via voice with Entune. Using the Nav functions are somewhat limited and the Bing database is more broad. But I can't search Bing while driving...a little frustrating. my dealer is looking into an update that should be available the end of Spring but is unaware what that may change. Toyota.com also has no real imput due to the fact of how new the system is.
My dealer also told me that the Entune update and Nave database update would be all for ine price which bothered me because I didn't think I would have to pay for entune updates since the upgraded Entune updates itself. We will see when the first update comes out.
