Safety connect services
Automatic collision notification
In case of either airbag deployment or severe rear-end collision, the system is designed to automatically call the response center. The responding agent receives the vehicle�s location and attempts to speak with the vehicle occupants to assess the level of emergency.
If the occupants are unable to communicate, the agent automatically treats the call as an emergency, contacts the nearest emergency services provider to describe the situation, and requests that assistance be sent to the location.
Stolen vehicle location
If your vehicle is stolen, safety connect can work with local authorities to assist them in locating and recovering the vehicle. After filing a police report, call the safety connect response center at 1-800- 331-4331 and follow the prompts for safety connect to initiate this service.
In addition to assisting law enforcement with recovery of a stolen vehicle, safety-connect-equipped vehicle location data may, under certain circumstances, be shared with third parties to locate your vehicle. Further information is available at toyota.Com.
Emergency assistance button ("sos")
In the event of an emergency on the road, push the "sos" button to reach the safety connect response center. The answering agent will determine your vehicle's location, assess the emergency, and dispatch the necessary assistance required.
If you accidentally press the "sos" button, tell the response-center agent that you are not experiencing an emergency.
Enhanced roadside assistance
Enhanced roadside assistance adds gps data to the already included warranty-based toyota roadside service.
Subscribers can press the �sos� button to reach a safety connect response-center agent, who can help with a wide range of needs, such as: towing, flat tire, fuel delivery, etc. For a description of the enhanced roadside assistance services and their limitations, please see the safety connect terms and conditions, which are available at toyota.Com.
Safety information for safety connect
Important! Read this information before using safety connect.
Exposure to radio frequency signals
The safety connect system installed in your vehicle is a low-power radio transmitter and receiver. It receives and also sends out radio frequency (rf) signals.
In august 1996, the federal communications commission (fcc) adopted rf exposure guidelines with safety levels for mobile wireless phones. Those guidelines are consistent with the safety standards previously set by the following u.S. And international standards bodies.
- Ansi (american national standards institute) c95.1 
- Ncrp (national council on radiation protection and measurement) report 86 
- Icnirp (international commission on non-ionizing radiation protection) 
Those standards were based on comprehensive and periodic evaluations of the relevant scientific literature. Over 120 scientists, engineers, and physicians from universities, and government health agencies and industries reviewed the available body of research to develop the ansi standard (c95.1).
The design of safety connect complies with the fcc guidelines in addition to those standards.
