    Toyota released an Entune update 12-6-2016 for some models. For those models, it is said it is free within 36 months and 36k miles.

    Anyone have it for the v or know if there was one for the v series? Was it map data or program functionality?

    I can't imagine it is for map data. Its my understanding Toyota charges big bucks for map updates. More than likely its for program functionality. I have not received an update for our car but will check the current version later today.

    there's a thread with the self download for upgrade. It didn't work for me as the USB stick wasn't recognized. I still have the file but can't find the thread

    For the life of me I can not figure out how to check the version of Entune installed onboard the car. I can check the iPhone app version easily enough but not the onboard car version. Hmmm...

    Where do I find the download link and the instructions to do so onto my 2013 Prius v Trim 5?

    The maps coukd definitely use an update or better yet also allow a way for Google Maps to be used in it instead. There has been a few times I had to totally wing it due to maps old, construction with road closures, and the car GPS only knew that one road from all choices (short, preferred, and alternative?).

    Just completed my Entune's update from 3.2 to 5.2 version. The update is specific to your vehicle. It can be found here,

    Toyota Downloads

    I downloaded the zip file, unzipped the contents into a blank USB, and plugged the USB in the car.

    I was very nervous after reading all the posts about the update going bad. However, I followed the instructions step by step and it worked fine. Make sure your car is running when doing this update. I almost made the mistake to start the update just with the radio on. Takes between 5 to 10 minutes. Screen shuts off for a few seconds couple of times during the installation. Just be patient and wait until the installation progress animation is displayed again.

    The Toyota download link was SUPER helpful. I called the dealership and service dept and NO ONE had a clue about how to fix my Bluetooth problem. The icon on the unit was "grayed" out and I was unable to use Bluetooth for my iPhone. When I learned about a possible update, I found the link above, downloaded the link to a flash drive, followed the instructions and it restored the Bluetooth function button!! Thanks so much for your help!!! By the way, I own a PRIUS V 2015.
