Took my Rav4 in for servicing on Thursday and asked them to update the stereo. When I picked up the vehicle I found this in the USB port. Not sure if the picture will show. IMG_0608.jpg

Wow, that looks like a special flash drive with the firmware update on it. It even shows to charge .3 hrs. of labor! Did you give it back to them?

So Toyota doesn't let you download and install your own radio updates like other manufacturers do? Any idea why not?

No charge for the update while under warranty and Service Manager said they have updates every few months.

Cannot update on your own that I am aware off but I am in Canada so we sometimes get second class treatment.

Make a copy before you return it! The I would return it anyway.
Can you post a directory list?
I assume it has a single file in root directory: swdl.iso
Inside ISO file we can find some info. I would love to have a copy.

I was told by Toyota dealer, the Entune update can be done via OTA or "Over the Air". I assume via XM or HD radio.
Just have to wait and check the update status, I guess.

Since he says he is in Canada the flash drive wouldn't have any Entune updates on it.

According Toyota.ca, Canadian's RAV4 come with same Entune. I just downloaded Canadian's owner manual. Same as US.
EU RAV4 come with Touch n Go software.
