    Hi all,
    My first post. I have the 2016 Tundra and I'm wanting information on upgrading my Navigation and multimedia system.. the current nav system is the scout.. it isn' all that great.. hoping there is a mod or upgrade I can do to enable google maps to the media center..

    I saw something with a harness that mirrors your phone to the stock head unit. Beat sonic I think. That way your google maps from your phone would go straight to screen.
    I’ve got the frac harness hooked up to mine, not sure if the two are compatible.

    new headunit is all you can do. No way (from what I have been told) to install integrated Nav to the Entune Plus Headunit or to have it utilize any other maps app other than Scout (which I agree totally sucks)

    I stand corrected, checked out the Beatsonic harness mentioned in the previous post, looks like a good mod

    Did you end up going with BeatSonic? Contemplating buying their mirroring kit.

    I’ve got the beat sonic mirroring kit. Not worth it. It’s cool but extremely limited. If you have the nav on your phone working that’s all you get. No radio or tunes. You do end up with a phone charger that’s always there.
    Better off getting a good mount for your phone to put it in a convenient visible spot.

    Bummer! Was excited at the prospect of a *cheaper* car play type option on the stock HU. Thanks for the review!
