Basically disappointed 3/5
I have the entune with nav and the fact they don’t add new apps or make sure they have updates for new devices is a little lame. I have a 2017 sienna and I’d expect a car that’s this new would be well supported. Even the dealer said they entune app team is years behind the rest of the company in terms of innovation. Best minivan - worst nav / app package. You could fix this if you wanted to, I even saw the entune 3.0 and that’s pretty much the same lame platform.
Japanese known for quality but not anymore. This app not being tested properly. Some issues being resurfaced with updates. I prefer the app being tested throughout than too many updates with bugs introduced.
My car is 2014 Sienna XLE. Like to have it connected so i can have traffic data on map. Pandora n iHeart are nice to have features because without the app i can still use Bluetooth to listen to them, of course without the ability to control from the dash screen. Other features from this app are useless for me.
Password not being remembered is annoying. Every few days, I have to re enter password. When you re driving and it asked for password is not safe. And this app does not have more security information than my bank apps, bank apps retained password with fingerprint pretty neat.
Bluetooth dropped out often. And most the time required restart the car to hand shake properly. Refreshing connections while car still running most the time not able to connect to app while phone Bluetooth can work ok.
Some people said enjoy using this to watch stock market, I think it’s a joke. Stock price seems to update only once per day.
cannot work on my iPhone 8+ 3/5
After I upgraded my iPhone from 7+ to 8+, the car always shows to me a error message asked me to active the software on my phone.....
Zero iPhone 8 support w/ Entune 1/5
In typical Toyota fashion, there is no Entune support for the iPhone 8 and Toyota Customer Service is useless and not knowledgeable as to any new or upcoming software/firmware updates for head units. Guess I’m supposed to use my phone illegally until Toyota gets their act together. Thanks Toyota for prioritizing my safety!!!
Log in every time 3/5
By Chuck in St Paul
Decent app to extend some of my mobile apps, EXCEPT I have to log in every time! Not good when I’m driving and I have to stop to type in my credentials. I don’t often know I want to use Entune Apps before I start my trip. Every other app needing credentials at least lets me use my finger print so I don’t have to stop on the shoulder and type while I’m driving. One on Toyota get with it on your mobile apps. Help keep us safe with the mobile apps on the road!
Terrible app! 1/5
Not connecting to my Highlander 1/5
I recently upgraded from iPhone 6 Plus iOS 11.1.1 to iPhone 7 Plus iOS 11.2 and now cannot get the 7 to connect with Entune. I can make & get calls thru Bluetooth but nothing on Entune works. I removed the phone and app from phone and even reinstall didn’t change anything. Very frustrating!
Why Bother? 1/5
So you download the app, create an account, mess around to get simple things like Pandora to work and then every few days it wants you to login? It can’t even save a password for more than a few days. That happened twice in about 10 days and I haven’t used it since. Deleted the app and connect music (and Pandora) with Bluetooth. Not sure what this is good for.
Same as everyone else 1/5
Toyota is going to loose a great many loyal customers if something is not done about this. My next car MUST support CarPlay. If you can’t keep up with the technology Toyota, stop trying and let apple do it. I feel like I’m going back in time every time I start my car and then have to log into entune.
Ashamed of my Toyota 1/5
Seriously I could get a better radio from Walmart if it would fit
Continuously having to enter my username and password is ridiculous. Nothing in this app needs to be that secure that I need a password with a number, capital letter and a symbol. Total overkill. About every 2 days I have to re-enter my information to login. Usually I’m driving and trying to get my Pandora working. Not safe. Need to add Touch ID or just make it so the app doesn’t need a password. Other than that, app is bulky and annoying. It’s easier just to connect my phone through Bluetooth and use the individual apps on my phone
Let down 2/5
This app would have such potential if it worked properly ! Update and fix all the issues . A huge one is that if you use remote start it won’t even work . Says the application isn’t running on your phone when it is . And won’t ever recognize it . No one wants to put the radio on let me listen to my slacker or pandora !!!
We deserve better!! 1/5
By Cement TRD Pro
Come on Toyota.....! Is this the best you can do? Put some resources into making the app more intuitive and user friendly. It’s my biggest frustration daily. My iPhone X cannot connect. My iPhone 7 had all kinds of tether issues frequently. At least give us the option of CarPlay if you can’t get this right.
Don’t work slacker radio 1/5
Please can you fix slacker radio, now I can play music from this app in the radio bc say you don’t have connection
iPhone X trouble 1/5
Worked great on my 6s but when I upgraded my phone I can’t use the entune pandora app anymore
When it works ... 1/5
Number one problem I have is it don’t connect every time I have to log in to the app. Very annoying driving and trying to log in. Safe issue.
When it works it is great! I just use it for iHeartRadio.
Future upgrade might help many people enter address on the phone and when you get in the truck address automatically upload in to GPS..
Doesn’t work 1/5
Upgraded to latest iPhone and car no longer recognises entune as running. Phone is connected and working, texts are unaffected. Dev kits for iOS are available well in advance of their release so there is NO EXCUSE for Toyota being unprepared for upgrades.
Doesn’t work with new iPhone OS 1/5
Got a new iPhone 8 and Entunes no longer recognizes when it’s plugged into the stereo. It charges the phone and I can connect via Bluetooth but all the other functionality has been lost. Hopefully they come out with an update soon.
Stop logging out please 2/5
Please add finger print authentication
It's a great attempt. It would be great, if I had to have the app installed, that it would at least stay logged in our have a save my creds option.
36,000 truck and the infotainment system(which is becoming a vehicles number one attribute) seems to have the least functioning app. BlackBerry is the parent company that actually makes the system.
2016 Tacoma trd off-road.
This app is terrible 1/5
First of all the fact that I have to log into the app literally every time I get in my truck is ridiculous. I've had my 2017 Tacoma for about 3 weeks and I love it. This app makes me reconsider my purchase. For such a seasoned company like Toyota, you would think you would put some thought into an app that plays such a large role in the vehicle. Also, there is zero customization available within the app. You are forced to use the services available and cannot add or delete anything. Most of which I'd never choose to use on my own. Please make some serious changes.
Wish this app was functional 1/5
I thought Toyota care about their customers. This app looks like a last minute project made last night with ridiculous bugs and horrible functionality. If Toyota cared about its customers they should update this app where it’s more programs that we actually use or get rid rid of it entirely. Bluetooth have been great for me but sometimes the program would crash on my head unit and it would restart on my 2016 Camry.
Won’t connect anymore 1/5
I just bought my 2016 Tacoma, and after a month, the app suite won’t show my stocks, sports, fuel or play Pandora or Slacker Radio. Toyota and the dealership seem to have no clue why. Unreliable!!!!
This app is a POS. You have to log into the app every time you want to use the apps on your car. Worst. Design. Ever.
Horrible Technology 1/5
Judging by the stars this app gets, I’m not the only one who thinks Entune is industries behind other manufacturing companies. My biggest complaint is the ability to load Spotify onto Entune, the technology is there because of Pandora but why not Spotify? Would give less than 1 star if I could...
Steaming pile of garbage 1/5
By Reviewer no. 99
I want the two hours of my life back that I have spent screwing around with this piece of garbage because Toyota did not design it properly. What’s the difference between entune and EnTune 3.0? Well apparently 3.0 only works on Toyota Camry‘s. Really stupid product decision. Completely non-standard. Not explained anywhere. Then Nothing but errors when trying to install the regular entune app. Password errors then VIN error. Enough to ruin the new car buying experience
Don’t depend on it working 1/5
It seems like everytime I get in the car it has forgotten my user name and password and I have to sign in again. Since I use secure passwords it means I have to look them up in my password manager causing extra delay starting out. I don’t think the developers of this app actually use it or annoying issues like this would have been fixed Lilongwe ago.
Why do I even have/need this garbage 1/5
Is it too much to ask they put some effort into an app that is required? What can I do with this app that I can't do with Bluetooth? Why does the design look like a first concept from a middle school student? I love everything about my car, except this absolute pile of trash, and I get more and more upset every time I start my car and this app automatically opens doing nothing at all.
2 things PLEASE!!! 2/5
1). Give an option the choose allow connection forever. Don't keep asking me every time I start the car. Or allow me to accept for like a week or a month or forever. I always want it to sync. Let me do that.
2). Similar to #1. Stop making me login. I get the security but let me choose. Stay logged in? Yes. Forever. Or at minimum give me biometric. Start driving and first it isn't trusted. Then OMG I have to login? So have to do that while driving. Hella dangerous and illegal. Or wait until I get where I'm going.
Both seem very easy to add. Please do this....
I will gladly add more stars if you do.
Signs you out all the time 1/5
Ugly and signs you out all the time.
iOS 11.1 broke Pandora on Entune 3/5
Toyota, please fix!
Completely useless!! 1/5
I agree with all the other reviewers that this app is a complete waste of space on my phone and in my brand new 2017 car. I have no idea why they would continue to put this useless piece of crap in such an awesome car. I believe I read the words CarPlay a couple of times...too bad Toyota app developers don’t read the reviews!
Absolutely crap 1/5
Toyota Entune to me is not up to what I think is Toyota standard. It appears to be playing catchup to Apple car play.
What's up with offering Apple Seri and not Car play?
I have two 2017 new Toyotas a Rav4 limited and a Platinum Tundra. Both have the JBL premium audio infotainment system. Sounds great, BUT getting my iPhone 5s to work ALL THE TIME is a BIG PROBLEM.
Almost Every time I shut off the vehicle it will drop my phone. Bluetooth dropping is also a problem. Why why why?
The Entune voice recognition also does not understand a quarter of what I request. I have had the system Learn my voice several times and it still doesn't work correctly. Seri works almost every time.
I have the Entune app on my phone and every time I turn off the vehicle it drops the app. Then when I start the app I have to put in my email and password every time.
I called Toyota customer service and got no where. They refused to take a suggestion I offered to have the app save the log in info and use fingerprint Touch sign in.
It's like they have something against Apple the most popular phone.
Just upgraded to a new iPhone 8 Plus and it had iOS 11.0.3 and connected to the Entune the first time I paired the iPhone.
Updated to iOS 11.1 and now no matter what I do it will not connect to my vehicles.
Called Toyota customer service and went through all the steps. Disconnect the Bluetooth, remove and reinstall the app, reboot iPhone. Then they tell me to take to dealer. Bummer. Why should I have to take my vehicle back to the dealership when this is an app problem?
Toyota needs to upgrade the Entune app and system to accommodate its dedicated customers.
When will they allow you to watch video!! 1/5
By Max von erbsen
It appears to me that if they can use the screen back upThen they can use the screen to watch video when parked. I see no reason why they’re not utilizing this function someone please tell me if I’m just missing out on the way to do this.? It seems stupid to overlook such an easy thing that I’m sure it can even be hacked in the car through visual & audio cables
Get with it, Toyota 1/5
Needs an update.... no longer works other than as a Bluetooth device. Irritating at best.
Terrible system 1/5
I installed the Toyota Entune app along with Scout GPS to try it because the Toyota navigation in my 2016 is terrible.
The Entune can not sync my scout and nether are user friendly. Toyota needs to scrap their overpriced navigation system and give users a link to use / connect Wize GPS/traffic which works great on its own.
Toyota needs to put more work into this 1/5
The app constantly signed you out. It’s not worth it every fourth of the time you get in your vehicle the login all over again
What a piece of Crap! 1/5
Just bought a Toyota Tacoma. Starting to regret this decision. This app does absolutely nothing. The Bluetooth phone works great on the truck, except that the sound quality is horrible. As for listening to Music or related apps, Should have bought a Chevy.
Are we in 2017? 1/5
I don’t get it. Features like messages that are to make people safer, don’t work with iPhones. Oh but since we were not able to figure that problem, we have added Sirieye that doesn’t alert you of anything , but adds extra steps. Come on, fix the problem already
After update to iOS 11.1 effectively useless 1/5
Before upgrading : Like many others have said, the app doesn’t keep you logged in. Half the time pandora won’t connect or says there is no play list - but if I play the pandora app outside entune it plays fine.
After update to iOS 11.1 : pandora doesn’t work at all through entune anymore. It simply plays music that is already on my cell phone. Changing channels only causes it to switch songs- again not on pandora but from my own library.
Toyota, do you even pay attention to these reviews? Worst piece of crap app ever.
Absolutely worthless 1/5
Not really even worth the time to write this short review. Makes me sign back in every time, and it doesn't do anything useful anyway. It's unbelievable that people got paid to develop this👍
No option to save login credentials makes app useless 2/5
This app has one fatal flaw: you have to manually enter your username and password every single time you get in your car. This makes the app basically unusable since it takes too much time to enter it manually to even bother. I'm surprised this is the case. The app would be much improved if it logged you in automatically. Your phone is only used to transmit data to the head unit, so there really shouldn't be any reason to take your phone out of your pocket. This is such a simple fix on your end. Please implement it.
Why not touch I.D. ? 3/5
By Wombat Joe 76
The app works decent enough for pandora and iHeartRadio. Where it fails is when it randomly requires you to enter your login info. Toyota can put every warning they want about paying attention to the road, but when I turn on my radio and I get the message that I need to have the entune app active guess who's got their eyes off the road entering his login info. I don't understand why that can't make an update to retain your username and use touch I.D. Or why not just have it remain logged in until I log out. Like every other app. If angry birds and boom beach can do it ,I would think Toyota can too. I hope they read this 🙏
Useless and watch out. Dealer blames phone and tried to charge me a fee 1/5
No comparison to apple car play. Best thing Toyota can do is offer a software update that gives owners apple car play. I'd even pay for that.
Update: head unit crashes often now. Dealer blames my phone of course. It’s an iPhone 6s
Update: 27 October 2017
With iPhone 8
Toyota wanted me to sign for a $57 “diagnosing fee” if there is an “outside interference “ causing the head unit to crash.
Either the latest app update or iOS 11 killed it 1/5
I did the latest app update on the same night as the iOS 11 update and I don’t know which one killed it, but the app is useless now.
With a solid Bluetooth connection and my iPhone 6s plugged into USB, the head unit nevertheless complains that communications were unsuccessful and the apps in my premium audio system never load any content.
I can make calls and play music over Bluetooth. I can play music over USB. I just don’t have a data connection anymore for stocks, Pandora, Open Table, etc.
I’ve unpaired and repaired the phone. I’ve force-rebooted the phone. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled the app. Nothing helps. The Entune app never establishes a data connection to the car.
Stop opening up on my phone screen! 1/5
When I turn on the car my phone asks to connect to Entune. I click Allow and the app opens. Honestly I am not going to use the app on my phone while i am driving! It covers over whatever app I had open, like Waze. I would be quite happy for it to stay open in the background, though so far I haven't used any of the available apps on the car because I don't have subscriptions to them.
No good. 1/5
The problem that I have with this app is that I switch often between Wi-Fi and cellular. Every time the app switches between Wi-Fi and cellular it restarts. Not to mention, I get WiFi throughout hundreds of WiFi hotspots in my town. My email is quite a long thing to try to type, and password, while I drive. (Not to mention illegal in my state) it’s dangerous. I just wanna Listen to my music and call my mommy, is that too much to ask? I never had this problem in my old Bluetooth Prius. if someone has stolen my car and my iPhone I have bigger problems than this app. Why do you have to log into that app? Haven’t I already proven that it’s me, by using the touch ID to unlock my phone to begin with?
The Worst! 1/5
Don’t bother even using Entune. I’d give it 0 stars if I could.
Really need finger print login 2/5
It’s not the best integration, however I do try to use it as I do like certain features in entire. One thing that would make it much better would be to have the fingerprint login. Every time my phone resets I’m logged on, however I don’t recall until I’m in the car. Then I’m stuck with either stopping my car or typing in the login and password while driving! I thought this is supposed to be driving friendly! Definitely at least add finger print login for safety reasons!
Keeps asking me for log in 1/5
10/23/17 Even with the new update, it still asks for the login info sporadically.
02/22/17 Toyota should really just use Apple CarPlay or Android. The app does work but not very sophisticated or pretty.
The app was updated on Feb 22, 2017 for version 1.20.55. Ever since then, it asks for my login info when it starts. I leave it running in the background, but it still asks. This has stopped me from using it.
