Destination download – Send locations to your vehicle from the convenience of your home, office or compatible smartphone.
Fuel Finder – Find and compare their nearest service stations for fuel price and availability of premium fuels.

Intelematics has been supporting Toyota Australia with telematics services for more than 10 years and also developed and operate the Lexus Enform program on behalf of Lexus Australia, part of Toyota Motor Corporation Australia.
Toyota Link is the culmination of more than two years of development from the Intelematics team. Intelematics will act as the program operator and aggregator for Toyota Australia.
Speaking about the partnership Adam Game, Chief Executive Officer, Intelematics said “Toyota customers will benefit from internet-enabled services accessible directly from their dashboard. The delivery of infotainment services will provide an enhanced in-car experience, dramatically changing how they interact with their vehicles.”
“We expect Toyota Link will rapidly grow to become Australia’s largest connected vehicle program,” said Game.
