Toyota Upgrades Entune Firmware

Previous, I reviewed the Entune system in my Prius c and how the dealer told me that when it was time, I would have to bring in the car to the dealership to have the firmware upgraded. Well, it turns out that’s not the case. Toyota sent out 2Gig thumb drives with the new firmware upgrade directly to the car owners.

All you have to do is plug this into the USB plug in the car and wait while the Entune upgrades it’s own firmware. The new version includes iHeart Radio, Open Table, and MovieTickets.com. So now, there are even more apps that will take your eyes off the road while driving. I got all the new apps to work except the iHeartRadio which didn’t seem to be able to load a playlist. This might be because I need to create an account. In any case, all of these apps are available on my smart phone so there’s really no need to use the clunky user interface on my Entune touch screen.
