2012 Toyota Camry: Thoughts On Entune
August 11, 2012
I played around with Entune a little when I was driving our Camry last month. Since I had never used it before, I started with Erin's setup post as a guide. After reading it, I was able to get Entune working without too much trouble.
And yeah, just like Toyota promotes, you can listen to Pandora and iHeartRadio, see traffic information, find movie and theaters, search for POI in conjuction with Bing, use OpenTable for restaurants and access other information, such as fuel prices and weather.
But for the most part, I was left with a feeling of ambivalence. I did see some value in Pandora and iHeart (though you're still paying for data useage on your phone). But for everything else I just wondered why I wouldn't just use my smart phone instead to get information. That way, I'm using the apps that I want to use rather than what Toyota gives me.
