Toyota Entune Parental Controls

Hyundai’s Blue Link infotainment system offers 2 features that are of particular interest to me: speed alert and geo-fencing. As a parent of young drivers, I would hope that the Toyota Entune system will include these features as well.

Speed alert is part of the system that sends a text message to parents when their child’s car is driven faster than pre-determined speed.
Geo Fencing is similar, but it sends text messages to the parents when the car is driven outside of pre-determined boundaries.

According to, the Toyota Entune system in the 2012 Toyota Prius features “parental-oreinted functions like a GeoFencing capability that sends text alerts if a vehicle strays outside of a predefined area.” This is the first we’ve heard of these features being available on the Toyota Entune system, and we’re quite excited about it!
