When it comes time to start looking for a new vehicle, something to consider is how the new wave of hybrid vehicles is hitting the lots at a more rapid rate than ever. There are a ton of benefits of owning a hybrid, one of them being the enhanced technology that comes with them. Here at Gale Toyota, we have quite a few different hybrid vehicles to choose from, but today we are going to focus on the Highlander Hybrid and what technology features come with it.
Standard Apple CarPlay Compatibility – Highlander Hybrid
One technology feature to point out in the Highlander Hybrid is the standard Apple CarPlay compatibility that comes with it. Drivers who own an Apple smart device have the luxury of syncing up their devices to Apple CarPlay where they can access a wide variety of useful features to help assist and entertain them while behind the wheel. Some of these features include hands-free texting and calling capabilities, access to streaming services and favorite apps, weather alerts, and more.
Standard Connectivity Features – Highlander Hybrid
While on the go, it’s important to stay connected. You now have that with Apple CarPlay. But what about keeping your devices running smoothly and keeping them charged? The Highlander Hybrid has you covered there as well. With an available wi-fi hotspot in the Highlander Hybrid, and multiple USB ports located throughout the vehicle, staying connected, and connected smoothly has never been easier.
Digital Rearview Mirror – Highlander Hybrid
With the digital rearview mirror equipped in your Highlander Hybrid, with the flip of a switch you will have a clear view of what’s going on around you. This digital rearview mirror is a complete upgrade from other rearview mirrors, and really gives you the best look at your surroundings and what may or may not be happening around you while behind the wheel.
Dynamic Navigation System – Highlander Hybrid
One last thing worth touching on as far as technology is concerned with the Highlander Hybrid is the dynamic navigation system. This system gives your step-by-step instructions on how to get from point a to point b. It also offers multiple different routes, so you can pick the one that’s either the shortest or most convenient for you. You also get real-time traffic updates and route suggestions if a new, faster route becomes available.
