Put the power of Toyota in the palm of your hand

What does the Toyota app do? 

The intersection of Toyota vehicles and connectivity technology has been nothing short of a total game-changer. Things started to change rapidly when access to the Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ suites of applications became standard equipment on most of the automaker’s models. All of that connectivity is great, but Toyota has gone more than a bit further by making its own technology available to vehicle owners. So, what does the Toyota app do? Basically, the Toyota app (available on Android and iOS) puts the automaker’s entire world into the palm of an owner’s hand. Using a single application, people will be able to perform several functions including access to their vehicle’s owner’s manual, find the closest Toyota dealer and obtain 24/7 roadside assistance. Let’s take a closer look at a few more things you might want to know.

Available Features of the Toyota App 

Most of us spend way more time glued to our smartphones than we probably should. By downloading the Toyota application, we can move away from wasting that time. There is a very long list of functions this app can perform. Some of our favorite features include: 

  • Service scheduling
  • Remote start/stop
  • Lock/unlock doors
  • Vehicle Location
  • Vehicle health alerts/reports

A Parent’s Best Friend 

There isn’t a parent with a teenage driver who doesn’t worry when their kids leave the house in their vehicle. The Toyota app will also allow vehicle owners to set up privileges for guest drivers (like teenagers) to use. Some of the parameters that can be set up include maximum speed limits, curfew alerts, maximum miles driven and geo fence. The last of these features will let the owner know if the vehicle has traveled outside of a set boundry. Finally, when the app is properly connected, it will give drivers a score to help them develop better and safer driving habits that are encouraged through gamification.  

The Toyota App can be used on most 2020 and 2021 Toyota vehicles. If you would like to see a live demonstration of this technology, make an appointment with a Lexington Toyota product expert today.
