Toyota Avalon Pushes Toward Connectivity

Tech features are a huge part of just about every vehicle class today, but luxury vehicles especially have a responsibility to keep up with the times. Enter the new Toyota Avalon. It's a luxury vehicle that steps up its game in a major way by helping drivers and passengers connect through their wearable devices. By now, we all know what wearables are. Now your smartwatch or other wearables can communicate seamlessly with your Avalon. One question you might have is how your wearable is going to communicate with your vehicle and how your vehicle will respond when the time is at hand.

As a luxury vehicle that boasts up to 301 horsepower, the Avalon certainly connects drivers with the road ahead of them in a safe and powerful way. But what about the wearables in your life? How will the Avalon handle communication between your wearable and the vehicle itself, and just how will this benefit you?

How wearables connect

  • Through Toyota Remote Connect, your wearable will be able to connect you to your Avalon and allow you to control vital features of it even when you're not in the vehicle

  • Entune 3.0 is the program that hooks your wearable up with your Avalon

  • If your vehicle is equipped with the Entune App Suite, you'll get a complimentary subscription to Entune, and that means your wearable can already connect to your Avalon

  • Entune gives you voice recognition, meaning that you can speak to Entune and have it recognize your voice commands, controlling your Avalon via your wearable

  • It's currently compatible with Apple Watch and Android Smartwatch


  •  

What can you do?

Your last question will obviously be just what can you do with this connectivity? It's a short list of answers, here, but some of the most important functions you'll have via voice commands to your smart device is:

  • Start your vehicle

  • Lock or unlock your doors via your smartwatch

  • Find your vehicle via location services

  • Control your applications via your wearable (applications like SiriusXM, Yelp, and Facebook, to name just a few)


  •  

If that sounds like something you'd be interested in, make sure to get the Avalon year and model that will have this wearable connectivity available. Older models might not have the kind of functionality that you'll need to effortlessly communicate with your wearable device. If this is an important feature to you, join the club. Millions of folks enjoy controlling their world via wearables. It literally puts your vehicle's most important functions at your fingertips, and that's a great feature to have.
