Video: Know Your Toyota – Apple CarPlay – How to Navigate between Entune 3.0 and Apple CarPlay
[Music plays] When you tether your Apple iPhone to the Entune 3.0 Display Audio system using Apple CarPlay, you may notice that the Entune 3.0 App Suite cannot be accessed when the “APPS” button is pressed on the vehicle’s multimedia display. This is because CarPlay and Entune 3.0 App Suite cannot be used simultaneously. By selecting the “HOME”, “MENU”, or “AUDIO” buttons you will be redirected to the appropriate menu. Pressing the Toyota Icon in the CarPlay apps will also redirect you to the Home menu.
But in order to access the Entune 3.0 App Suite, CarPlay must be disabled in one of two ways. The easiest way to do this is by simply untethering the approved lightning cable connected to your iPhone 5 or newer device. This will effectively end your CarPlay session and will restore Entune 3.0 App Suite connectivity, if the proper Entune 3.0 app is installed and the iPhone was already paired via Bluetooth prior to tethering. The second option is to disable the CarPlay functionality on the vehicle’s multimedia display. You will need to do this when using Entune Apps that require your phone to be tethered for enhanced functionality, like when using the Scout GPS Link app to push moving maps from your phone, to the multimedia display. Begin by untethering your iPhone, as you cannot disable CarPlay when the feature is active. Then press the Menu Button on the vehicle’s multimedia display.
Followed by Setup, General, scroll down, and then disable CarPlay by turning the function to “Off”. You will now be able to access the Entune 3.0 App Suite while tethered, but it is important to note, that if you wish to access CarPlay again, you must turn the functionality back to “on” in the vehicle Setup menu.
