Angry Android Auto Coming to Toyota.

https://www.theverge.com/2019/2/7/18...tacoma-4runner

One of the last major holdouts in adding Android Auto compatibility has finally caved. Toyota announced on Thursday that the 2020 models of the 4Runner, Tacoma, Tundra, and Sequoia will feature Android Auto. The 2018 Aygo and the 2019 Yaris (in Europe) will also get Android Auto.

Gosh Friggin Damnit. I wish toyota would have android auto for not only new vehicle, but also a retrofit kit for all other previous ones. They should pay ME to put up with them dumb brick of an entertainment system we have no choice on.

Completely agree. I doubt it would cost them anything to build this compatibility in from the get go, even if its not enabled from factory. Even Mazda is currently offering a retrofit to add in Apple Car Play and AA on their older models.

The sales guy kept telling me he expects a software update to Entune 3.0 to support Android Auto this year. The fact Entune 3.0 supports Apple CarPlay, I can't see why this can't be accomplished with a software update on the current hardware.

It will only be the 2019 model where this can possibly be retrofitted, leaving the rest of C-HR owners sol. I know electronics is a huge aftermarket, but this kind of tech should really be standard on all cars now.

I'd have totally paid for an upgrade if that option was available

Classic strategy played to keep getting us to buy again and they know we will because its Toyota. Only alternative is to buy a model with richer timeline preceding it.
