Apps in your car. Toyota's Entune

Boot Camp feature for Friday, February 4, 2011

      Apps in your car.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.     Apps are everywhere these days…on smartphones and TV screens….and they are coming to cars as well.   Toyota has announced the Entune multimedia system…which will debut in new models of the Prius this year.   What will it do?    Toyota planning manager Jason Adang…

We’re starting off with five key applications.  Bing search.  I Heart Radio, 750 radio stations throughout the country.  And then MovieTickets.com, the ability to search out not only movie theatres and movies, but also buy tickets.   And then Open Table, the ability to book restaurants, 14 thousand restaurants throughout the United States, you can book them using Open Table.   And Pandora Internet radio.

      The system connects to the Internet through your smartphone, so there isn’t another data connection to pay for.     You can find us with archives, interviews and more at BootCamp.com.  I’m Fred Fishkin.
