Toyota radio app lets drivers tailor their in-car music

Toyota is giving customers access to personalised audio streaming in the car using Aupeo!, an application that can be downloaded for the latest Toyota Touch 2 with Go multimedia package.

The new Yaris is the first Toyota in Europe to give customers the chance to tailor their on-board entertainment using the personalised Aupeo! audio application.

It’s the first of its kind to be integrated into the Toyota Touch 2 with Go multimedia system, opening up new audio streaming options from a choice of more than 200 radio stations.

Users can tune into their personal radio, with a music feed based on their individual taste, or select genre stations that focus on particular music types. A mood tuner provides music to suit your mood, while the 'artist station' function takes the music of a favourite performer and others of a similar style.

The service operates across national boundaries, so you can keep in tune with the sounds you like on any cross-Continental business or holiday journey.

Established in Berlin in 2008, Aupeo!'s services are available in vehicles in more than 60 countries with more than a million daily users. Both in and out the car, it is installed on more than 50 million devices.

Available in the UK from October, Aupeo! Premium Service will be available as a 30-day free trial package, giving full access to all premium services.

After this period, users can benefit from the 'basic free service' giving unlimited music from selected stations, with adverts. 

Users can also subscribe to the 'premium music service' for a monthly charge of £4.25, without adverts and the option to use the skip track function 50 times a day. 

At the end of 2014, the 'signature service' is launched for £8.50 per month; giving users up to 100 skips per day, access to internet radio stations and an improved, high definition surround sound bitrate quality.
