2022 Toyota’s new infotainment system

2022 Toyota’s new infotainment system

Over the years, Toyota has changed its infotainment system, including the addition of several unique features. From cassette players to huge screens, these changes have definitely upgraded Toyota vehicles. The newest 2022 Toyota infotainment system takes these cars to the next level. 

 

Bigger, better screens

Bigger, better screens

 

The screen size of the system is now bigger than it used to be. It’s a 14-inch touchscreen that looks like a smartphone. The screen has an optically bonded high-definition display to offer an optimal viewing experience.

 

Additionally, it comes with day-night mode and now has five times more processing power than previous units. Users can enjoy faster and more responsive interactions. Also, the infotainment system is more intuitive and user-friendly. The graphical interface and menus are totally different from the old units and they integrate Cloud Navigation with Google's Point of Interest (POI) search functionality. 

 

You can now see and share ETA information with your contact, zoom in and out of the map and tilt the screen for better positioning. 

 

Exciting new features

 

The new infotainment system has a virtual assistant feature. You can activate this with voice commands like ‘Hey Toyota’ (or ‘Hey Lexus’). With the virtual assistant feature, you can perform several actions. These include changing audio and climate control settings. 

 

Aside from that, the virtual assistant feature does not depend on an internet connection or subscription. To enhance voice recognition, Toyota has used special cloud computing and built-in software. It also added several in-vehicle microphones, so there’s no need to shout!

 

Bye-bye cables

 

Although the system still comes with USB ports, it now has the standard wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. This means you can connect your devices through Bluetooth. In fact, some grades of the NX and Tundra come with wireless smartphone charge pads. 

 

Connected services

Connected services

 

The system now allows users to pair up to five devices and two simultaneously. The system apps have been updated to include more features like turning hazards and headlights on and off and locking doors. Apart from that, you can now store up to three profiles. Each driver's profile automatically detects them once they've paired their smartphone.

 

Toyota has also included connected services like Safety Connect and Service Connect. The new infotainment system is no doubt a unique piece.
