    I have a 2018 Tundra with the laughably bad Scout GPS as navigation. I recently had a 2018 4-Runner as a rental and its navigation resembled my wife's Lexus GS 350. While not that great its leaps above the Scout navigation in my Tundra. Being new to the Tundra family my question is does all the Tundras use that crazy little scout thing or do some come with legit navi applications depending on the trim level or Entune level? Just curious as I think the one in the Lexus sucks also and I always use Waze or google navigation on my phone.

    Yes, you can get nav in any trim SR5 and above. Actually, in the 2014 - 2017 (don't know about 18+ since they changed the dash a little) the Nav head unit is a direct swap. The truck already has the GPS antenna and connectors stock even if it didn't come factory with the Nav HU.

    Good question! Haven't used my navigation much on my sr5 sport since I've been really spoiled in the past on my Chevy with Android auto and my wife's Subaru Ascents AA.

    I do use my phone AA or Waze when I don't have an AA head unit. When navigating locally.

    Although I don't plan to use etune nav for local drives I think I'll find it useful for long drives (200-1000 miles etc) where I don't have to burn my data or rely on the phones GPS. Despite being able to download maps (only with Google map).

    I can’t get my scouts to work. Hasn’t even once! I get the destination picked, it calculates, and then goes back to the start up screen.

    I have the full nav in my 16 pro. Sucks compared to Nissan.

    OEM nav units in all Toyota/Lexus are trash, the only ones with redeeming qualities are the Carplay/Alexa compatible ones

    even the $100k LX570 seems to have basically just a high res version of the 2012 Camry's unit

    Agree with all...I use a Carpro USA mount and just use my iPhone. Just thought it was curious that Toyota use different "levels" navigation as selling points?? I don't think anyone regualy uses the onboard ones.

    I agree the nav sucks. Tried it out and it shows my house a block up from where it is.

    I thought there was some adapter to put on stock radio to mirror an android phone. I saw this awhile ago on a FB tundra site but cant remember what it was called. I'm 358 miles on new truck and I need to mirror my phone to head unit. Just need to research it now

    As a matter of fact I think the entire head unit is glitchy. My 16 tundra had just the standard radio with no option of download the app or GPS which would have been scout. Never had glitches. The new one glitchy as shit.
