Today we're taking a look at all the technology in the dashboard in of the 2019 Toyota intern, and we've got a lot of ground to cover because it's mostly all new, let's dig right in.
The frist thing we wanna highlight is the Intune 3.0 technology, that's gonna be this big tombstone in the middle of the dashboard.
It wasn't always my favorite system in previous generations, but 3.0 [UNKNOWN] has a lot of improvements.
It's got me looking at it twice.
The first thing is gonna be this big screen.
It's huge, it's crisp, and it's responsive to my touches.
I really like This display, another thing that I really like are these physical buttons on either side, and they're gonna allow me to very quickly get around this redesigned menu system, without having to jump back to the home screen a whole lot.
I also like that the buttons that you use the most often, the audio, and maps They're right here close to you.
So they're not even a very long reach from the driver's seat.
There's also a separate menu where your secondary functions are gonna be.
That's a little bit confusing, to have a home screen and a menu screen.
But you get used to it.
And here's where you're gonna find all of those other features like your Intune apps that are gonna live on your smartphone and also the projection system.
It's gonna enable things like Apple Car Play or Scout GPS integration.
And if you have a smart phone its compatible with that.
In the app screen the in tunes app includes things like Pandora, iHeartRadio, as well as a couple of things that aren't necessarily considered apps.
Like stocks, scores, and fuel prices.
Those are going to come down off of your satellite radio connection.
In order to run those you need the app installed on your phone and the in tune app installed on your phone and then paired via Bluetooth.
The maps themselves are pretty basic looking but I really like the resolution on them.
And the routing and traffic system does seem fairly accurate.
It's gotten me around a couple of really awkward traffic jams over the last couple of days.
And now below that we've also got a bank of all physical buttons for climate control, so there's no need to go digging around in the touchscreen for that.
I really like that as well.
And front and center, we have a combination of physical gauges for speedometer and tachometer and a large center multi-information display.
That's gonna give you a lot of information about things Thinks like your fuel economy, what's your various driver aid systems.
You can also display stuff like your current audio source here.
It's a really nice screen.
It's really quick, and it's sharply rendered.
Elsewhere in the cabin, we've got nice touches.
For things like, I don't know, for example this cup holder that's shaped like a D so that a smart phone fits nicely in it.
Though I don't really know why you'd wanna put your phone here when the better place is in the center console where you've got two high speed charging ports, 2.1 amps of Those'll charge tablets, and as well as a data point right here.
You've also got up front a Qi wireless charging pad, so if your phone supports wireless charging, you just sit it there and don't have to worry about cables at all.
Also in the back, we've got two high speed charging ports as well, so everyone's gadgets will be nice and charged while you ride along the road.
So there's been your look at all of the technology in the dashboard of the 2019 Toyota Avalon.
