    Hi
    Any new Toyota owners out there know when Apple's CarPlay will be integrated.
    We had a vague 'it's coming soon' from a sales guy but no real idea of 2019 or 202 etc

    It's a licensing issue and I've been told it'll be sorted before years end. But it's not really acceptable is it.

    I think you will find that most of the Far East manufacturers are a bit behind the curve when it comes to infotainment systems. The infotainment systems in Lexus for example, are terrible compared to the likes of BMW, Audi, etc. They tend to be overly complicated with basic functions hidden deep within menus.

    Don't think it's far east manufacturers being behind, most of them I think seem to have Apple Car play and Android Auto at least as an option apart from Toyota.

    I read that it would be 2020

    I've heard from a sales guy that it'll be rolled out in Nov 2019. Easy upgrade to the head unit.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,804 ✭✭✭ Colonel Panic


    Easy software upgrade? Looking at getting a Corolla soonish which wouldn't have Carplay.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3 Auric1973


    Yes, easy software upgrade. You just upgrade the software on the head unit, to add in the Apple CarPlay software.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,491 ✭✭✭ AlanD


    Anyone have an update on whether a software update is available yet for the 2019 corolla?

    No - and my understanding is that it will not be available as a software upgrade. If the car never had it then it will never have it.

    New CHR coming Jan/Feb will have it, apparently

    Absolutely. Didn't consider a Toyota when changing our car this year because system wasn't in it

    Little bit of better news, was in a dealer yesterday. There will be a software upgrade available for all MM17 and onwards Toyota radios that will allow upgrade to Carplay and AA. No date for release yet, or cost....


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,491 ✭✭✭ AlanD


    That's great news.....would love to have Android Auto


  • Registered Users Posts: 12 Matinclunn


    I see it is available now in the 201 corolla, toyota have also added front and rear parking sensors as an option. Shame because the standard equipment that’s offered on the uk Corolla is not available to the irish buyer. We’re still getting paddy spec cars as usual.


  • Registered Users Posts: 72,608 ✭✭✭✭ colm_mcm


    If only there was some way of buying a uk spec car and bringing it to Ireland.

    Presume that's the baseline spec though? Often the case in the UK that the base spec is as bad if not worse than here, as no one buys them.

    Have been chasing this since we got our Corolla in late 2019. Had seen Android Auto in other cars and was determined to get it in our. See attached from UK Toyota forum. Pretty much confirms the retrofit is for Carplay and Android Auto (I'm an Android man)

    I've raised this with Toyota Ireland and a few Irish Toyota dealerships on Twitter just recently (no reply yet). Wouldn't do any harm for a few more people to rattle their cage - I'll update with anything I hear. Fingers crossed we have good news soon.


  • Registered Users Posts: 371 ✭✭ scooby77


    Currently available in chr. Anyone when know when available in Corolla and/or Camry ( heard MY20 whenever that kicks in)
