CarPlay2Air option to add Android Auto

Apparently, those of us with the Entune 3.0 system might be able to add Android Auto without waiting on Toyota to get their head out of their backside. There's a thread going on the Toyota Nation 12th Gen Corolla forum about this:

https://www.toyotanation.com/threads...#post-14149880

Someone called them directly and the rep said it works seemlessly for all cars listed for wireless CarPlay but will also add Android Auto. The poster said he ordered it and will report back on if Android Auto indeed does work. He also stated there is a 15 day money back guarantee if it doesn't work.

If this does work, I'm not waiting for Toyota figure out which way is up and will order one myself. I'll be happy to support a company that fixes deficiencies from companies such as Toyota on something that should have been handled so much better.

Just realize the Android Auto it adds is Wired only. No Wireless.

I'm good with that. Even with Toyota's factory Carplay support, it doesn't support wireless Carplay. From my understanding, Android Auto was just announced and is only available if you hack it to make it functional.

This is another situation where the dumb interior designers at Toyota fell asleep at the wheel by not locating the USB/Aux jack in the center console storage area with the 12V outlet. I'm thinking of maybe figuring out a way of relocating the jack assembly into the console storage/arm rest area where it should have been from the beginning.
