    I found out last week that the latest Entune update had been released to 3.1. Toyota has been kinda hush hush on releasing this update compared to the previous ones.
    I had my dealer perform the update yesterday and it did fix some of my issues. The biggest headache was whenever I would plug in my phone the music would start playing automatically from anywhere in my library. It fixed that problem thank goodness. I used to get a sound from my speakers whenever I would receive a text. It did it all the time when I first got my truck and then it stopped working. This update did not fix this problem.

    The update corrects a lot of issues and I would recommend you guys go and get it.

    Does anybody have any ideas of my problem getting notifications? The Entune manual that came with the truck is almost useless as it describes and talks about a totally different system that what our Tacoma's come with. Very disappointed in Toyota for this!

    No they did not charge. It follows the 3/36 mo warranty. Just tell them you are having some issues and they will update it.

    Is the entune a new head unit replacement, or just software? I have a 2013 and mine didn't come with this, would the upgrade still work?

    Question for you guys... When you have your phone connected via BT, do you get a sound from your system telling you of a new text? Mine used to and now it does not. It will show a text say on the screen saying" New Text message. Can you guys check this for me please?

    There are so many poor reviews on this app. I'm skeptical about it.
