From September 2019, all new Toyota vehicles will come fitted with a device that opens up a whole new world of features. When you opt in you'll have access to Wi-Fi capability and a host of convenient Connect services.
Toyota South Africa Motors (TSAM), in partnership with Vodacom, is pleased to announce the introduction of a new streaming service to Toyota Connect and Lexus Connect: MyEntertainment. Packaged under MyEntertainment are Vodacom’s Video Play (video streaming) and My Muze (music streaming) services, that offer Toyota and Lexus customers an improved ownership experience with enhanced connectivity and added value.
Video Play offers local and international entertainment on the go – providing customers with access to movies, series and music videos (via a streaming device). My Muze, in turn, opens up a world of local and international music to be enjoyed anywhere. A standout feature is the ability to use these streaming services independently of the vehicle, thereby not limiting them to in-vehicle usage.
The video and streaming services are available as part of Toyota and Lexus’ connectivity services, Toyota/Lexus Connect. Launched more than a year ago, the technology enables the driver and passengers a myriad of convenience features including in-car Wi-Fi and safety benefits. All new Toyota and Lexus models are prepared for the use of Toyota/Lexus Connect.
Once linked to the MyToyota/MyLexus App via Toyota/Lexus Connect, owners can make on-demand service bookings, retrieve vehicle usage information (logbook), renew vehicle licences, review tracking data, request roadside assistance and more. Now with the introduction of MyEntertainment, customers have the option of activating either a 15Gb data bundle, 10Gb with 2-month free Video Play streaming or 10Gb with 3-month free My Muze, when they purchase a new vehicle.
As before, bespoke top-up data packages are available once the initial complimentary data is depleted. The new streaming services will go live in December 2020.
Allow companions to connect to your vehicle's Wi-Fi so that they can stream music or play games, offering endless entertainment.
Check your battery health from anywhere at any time, and get alerts when your battery is low so that you're never stranded.
Be connected to the AA and contact them in an emergency using your current location. With Connect you always get the support you need, when you need it.
Get reminders of your upcoming service dates and easily book your vehicle in via the MyToyota app.
Always have the location of your vehicle available in real time to put your mind at ease when you are on the road.
Conveniently keep digital track of your vehicle's mileage and service history, and allocate Work and Home for business and personal trip auto allocation.
Receive a driver rating score dependent on your driving behaviour – receive a score out of 100 for your cornering, braking, speeding and accelerating. Perfect for businessmen who have drivers on the road.
