    I guess my 1st question is will the entune App Suite run on my 2017 SR5? When I try to register it, I get to the part where I add in my VIN wether by the camera on manually it errors out. Am I doing something wrong?

    I have a 2020 Platinum and as far as I can tell there are no Entune apps. Or at least...other than the three Toyota ones no other Apps show up on my truck.

    If it’s the Entune plus head you bought from someone (like a navigation head with Entune “premium”), you need the vin from the original truck or a vin for a truck that had it as an option originally to recognize the vin for all the features to work. It won’t recognize your trucks vin if it didn’t come with the head. The Nav will work, but iHeart etc and maintenance tracker won’t.

    This drove me mad; the scout gps app sucks. When I first bought the truck, it said I had entune plus. Spent two hours on the phone with Toyota because it said my vin would not register and they / I finally figured out that the entune plus doesn’t have the apps or built in gps ......I bought the oem head unit with navigation from another member and I now have the built in gps. I don’t use any of the other apps so it didn’t matter that I couldn’t register my vin and get them to work. A lot of people switch out their head units so if you want the oem look they pop up for sale pretty often.

    I talked to Toyota and found out my truck doesn't support entune. It's all in the VIN which matches with the head unit. WEAK, Very WEAK Toyota!!!

    correct, but it should support the built in navigation if you get the upgraded head unit. Otherwise go aftermarket......

    And you would have to have the VIN that the head unit came out of. I'll go After Market.

    The navigation is not vin specific....at least not for the 2019. I will check the other apps today. Many have swapped the head units simply to get the built in gps and keep the oem look

    I had the same “Entune plus” with the Scout Nav app, which has to be the lamest Navigation system ever. I was able to find a OEM non-JBL head with Navigation that was completely plug and play. The Toyota “real” navigation system is very good, but this other crap is beneath the brand and should not even be offered. The Nav upgrade is one of the best you can make IMO

    I believe this is the case. The OEM Nav worked without the vin when I installed mine. The Vin number just added access to the Entune Apps on the head unit and on your phone to sync. It you have the “plus”, you have the GPS antenna already in the truck so it’s all plug and play.

    Toyota informed me that the head units are VIN specific.

    yes, but the built in navigation works regardless of vin. You will NOT get the app suite and maintenance access without the vin of the original truck though.
