Android Auto and Apple CarPlay in the 2021 RAV4


Connectivity in the 2021 RAV4

The lineup of Toyota vehicles includes high-tech features like Apple Carplay and Android Auto. Drivers with smartphones find that having dedicated technology provides more than just entertainment. Connecting instantly to a multimedia system lets drivers use hands-free methods for entertainment, navigation, and communication.

To see the 2021 RAV4 music streaming and connectivity features, we invite you to visit us as Spitzer Toyota. Our experienced and friendly sales professionals can show you how to use your smartphone to get the most out of the RAV4.

Android Auto & Apple CarPlay

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are driver’s assistant services that let you access your phone’s features through your car’s infotainment system. While driving, you can access navigation, music, and messaging services through the standard 7-inch screen in the RAV4.

With the RAV4, you can plug in your phone or access it through Bluetooth. Once your phone is connected, you can use the voice-control system for hands-free safety. Rather than glancing at your smartphone, you can access the apps on the screen. This hands-free method of connectivity lets you stream music in the 2021 Toyota RAV4.

Loading the RAV4 with Infotainment

The 2021 RAV4 is available in three trim levels, the LE, LE Hybrid, and XLE. All three trim levels come standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. All three trims include the standard 7-inch infotainment screen, and the XLE has an available 8-inch screen as part of an upgraded sound system package. The RAV4 Prime, the plug-in hybrid model, also comes standard with smartphone connectivity and offers drivers an available 9-inch tech screen.

Along with the smartphone connectivity features, the infotainment system includes Amazon Alexa compatibility, Bluetooth, a USB media port, a three-month subscription to SiriusXM and Wi-Fi Connect, as well as a one-year trial to Toyota’s SafetyConnect.

The Toyota SafetyConnect features include Emergency Assistant, Stolen Vehicle Locator, Roadside Assistance, and Automatic Collision Notification. By adding this system to every RAV4 model shows Toyota’s dedication to safety.

Benefits of Smartphone Connectivity

Smartphones have become a necessary part of our lives. Being able to immediately connect to your 2021 RAV4 and access your entertainment and navigation apps makes sense in today’s world. We all know it’s unsafe to use your smartphone while driving, so Apple CarPlay and Android Auto make it safe to drive and use your apps. Whether you plug-in or access the systems via Bluetooth, you can set your phone aside and rely on your voice or the sizable 7-inch screen to play music.

The RAV4 display screens also show camera views, serve as the Blind Spot Monitor, and announce the Lane Departure Alert and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. When the screen is accessing safety features, your 2021 RAV4 music streaming continues, and once the camera and alerts stop, you will see your smartphone’s details reappear on the screen. Keep in mind that safety features vary by vehicle trim levels.

Connectivity with Safety in Your 2021 RAV4

The 2021 RAV4 music streaming is a popular feature of the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity services. You can plug in your wireless charging device to the USB ports and enjoy your music, navigation, and communication apps on the front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive RAV4.

We invite you to Spitzer Toyota to see the infotainment features on the 2021 RAV4 and how the smartphone connectivity features provide hands-free safety while on the road.
