    Im not a big fan of carplay as I find that I simply rely on BT for streaming and the vehicle nav for anything else useful to me. Also appears the headunit will be a new 8".


    Taken from Macrumors:

    CarPlay will be a standard feature in each vehicle, but screen size will vary by trim. With the 2020 Tacoma, for example, the base SR trim will feature a 7-inch touchscreen while SR5 trims and higher as well as TRD Pro trims of the Tundra, Sequoia, and 4Runner will feature a larger 8-inch touchscreen.

    The press release doesn't specify whether the CarPlay implementation is wired or wireless, but it is presumably wired in line with its 2019 and newer Avalon, Corolla Hatchback, Camry, RAV4, Sienna, and C-HR. Toyota will offer wireless CarPlay in the 2020 Supra since it is based on a BMW platform.

    Last year, we published an in-depth review of how CarPlay performs in the 2019 Avalon and 2019 Corolla Hatchback.

    Toyota was one of the last major automakers to offer CarPlay, which provides convenient dashboard access to iPhone apps such as Phone, Messages, Apple Maps, Google Maps, Waze, Apple Music, and Spotify. These will be the first-ever Tacoma, Tundra, Sequoia, and 4Runner models with factory-installed CarPlay.

    CarPlay availability in Toyota vehicles may vary outside of the United States. Pricing and availability were not disclosed.

    Hopefully head unit swaps will be a possibility. Anything is better than this 2018 JBL piece of crap

    About time! As usual other stock Toyotas/Lexus' already have it.

    This is CarPlay using an aftermarket CP dongle attached to an Android HU:

    45002957_10156617419761153_3480884394258857984_o.jpg

    Without the dongle activated, this is my Android HU cycling through RADIO > VIDEO (on a USB) > BT PHONE > VIDEO > HOME SCREEN (with digital speedo)> WAZE (video playing in background, can be Spotify, USB music etc)

    It would be neat to get Google Maps on the screen but I could care less about everything else.

    I have a Tundra on order that's been sitting at the port for 3 weeks now and they can't give me an ETA on delivery. I'm now tempted to request my deposit back and wait until the end of the year to purchase because these options would be worth it to me. But I don't think I can wait that long!

    That's always the way my luck goes. Finally get it and now they are planning Car Play. If I had of known that I could have waited until they came out since the truck was not an "emergency" purchase for towing our trailer. The 4Runner we had could have pulled it with a little more care on weight distribution.

    agreed. That would be huge if we could swap... and its not a total fortune. I like the stock look so I wouldn't get an aftermarket unit, apple carplay would be a game changer.
