Toyota Entune and Apple Watch
Car applications and integrated touch screens are still relatively new in the world of automakers. Apple CarPlay and the Android Auto have yet to be refined and have also been highly anticipated by tech fans. Toyota’s Entune mobile application debuted back in 2012. This application can be downloaded on an iOS or Android smartphone to run apps like iHeartRadio and Pandora on your Toyota touchscreen. Instead of struggling with your smartphone, you can just use your favorite apps directly on your vehicle’s touchscreen. Consumers are now asking, will Toyota Entune work with the Apple Watch?
Speculation begins about the Toyota Entune

Toyota just revealed a RAV4 Hybrid crossover SUV to go along with the legendary and ever-expanding lineup of Prius vehicles. We are truly living in a golden age of technology. Now, that technology is making its way into our vehicles.
Whether or not the Apple Watch will work Toyota Entune is remained to be seen. We can speculate that the Toyota Entune app could update for Apple Watch integration. Toyota’s ability to quickly update an app that is available to all of its Entune users is a good sign. Other automakers that do not really on a dedicated app to deliver multimedia to car owners might have a more difficult time dealing with the Apple Watch.
