CarPlay available in 2019 model

Post by Giannis-CHR » Sat Dec 29, 2018 2:40 pm

I don't know what "2019 C-HR" means exactly but in the US they now advertise Apple CarPlay compatibility:

https://www.toyota.com/c-hr/ebrochure/

The car doesn't seem to be redesigned in any way but it's a bummer that I only bought mine last month and it doesn't support CarPlay. Toyota Touch 2 with Go is crap, there's no milder way of putting it, and every day I wish I could get Google Maps on my screen.

I wish Toyota would enable this feature for the rest of us who already bought a car, but I don't know if it's a software-only thing or hardware too.

They are talking about Entune 3 available in US, not Toyota touch 2 available to Europe. Looks like a software update solution to the current system. Only for Apple Car Play. Not mention about Android auto.
I hope they will do something for the failed Toyota touch 2 too.

Launched in 2017 in the 2018 Toyota Camry, Entune 3.0 is the current iteration of Toyota Motor North America's telematics and infotainment platform. Entune 3.0 is a departure from previous Entune platforms as it is based on the Automotive Grade Linux operating system as opposed to Blackberry QNX in previous versions. As such, it is not compatible with Entune 2.x mobile applications and integrations. However, this operating platform upgrade potentially enables many more third-party developer enhancements by moving to an open-source platform as opposed to the proprietary QNX system used in previous versions.

So unlikely to be a software update for Touch 2 in Europe then.

I have no previous experience with car computer but C-HR's media player seems really slow and clumsy.
I don't know what the HW is but always the software can be upgraded if desired.
There are alternatives to the C-HR's original player on the Internet, but how do I get the car settings?

Some settings at least in my car can only be done with the media player/satnav.

Under My Toyota -> My Car
Then scroll down, at About Toyota C-HR -> Settings.
Can link the Danish one, if you want it ;)
