How do I activate my Toyota navigation system?

I purchased a Toyota a few days ago, and I’m still working on getting all the new features set up. Overall, it’s been pretty simple, but I haven’t figured out how the navigation system works yet. How can I activate the navigation system in my Toyota?

Congratulations on the new Toyota! Figuring out all the bells and whistles on a new car can be challenging, but activating the navigation system in your Toyota is relatively easy and you should have it all squared away in less than half an hour.
To activate your Toyota navigation system, you should:
  1. Connect your smartphone to the vehicle’s Entune system via Bluetooth.
  2. Download the Scout GPS Link app on your smartphone.
  3. Open the Scout GPS Link app on your smartphone and create an account or touch Skip.
  4. Follow the prompts on your phone to initialize the app and make sure to enable access to your location.
  5. Look on the vehicle’s touch screen and follow the prompts. You will most likely need to download and install an update.
  6. Launch the Scout GPS Link app from your vehicle’s touch screen display.
Once the Scout GPS Link app has been set up, you can quickly bring up directions anytime by:
  • Pressing Maps and then Destination on the touchscreen display
  • Entering the destination or point of interest
  • Pressing Go
