What is Toyota Wi-Fi Connect?

With the ever-so-connected world we live in, it’s no surprise that we now have access to wireless internet in our cars. Keeping the kids entertained on the road has never been easier, thanks to Toyota’s Wi-Fi Connect. This service provided by Verizon allows you to connect up to five devices to an in-vehicle hotspot. Wi-Fi Connect is available on certain Toyota models equipped with Entune Audio Plus and Entune Premium Audio. New cars equipped with Toyota Wi-Fi Connect will receive a 2 GB/6 month free trial (whichever comes first).

If you already have a Verizon account, you can add this plan directly to that account. If you don’t have a Verizon account, you will have to set one up in order to continue to use Wi-Fi Connect.
