Last but not least, Destination Assist Connect will allow customers to get directions and destinations delivered by a 24-hour live operator to an address or point of interest.

We recommend all Toyota owners to download the Toyota Owners mobile app. The Toyota Owners mobile app will allow customers to have all the information you could possibly need at the palm of your hands.
