Apple carplay support

Post by Gregoriou » Tue Apr 02, 2019 6:09 pm

Hey all,

So I got my Toyota CHR last year and collection day was the 14th December 2018.... but it meant my car does not have apple carplay. I figured who cares because I can use bluetooth to stream Spotify, and I do, but I really would like to add Apple Carplay to my car after researching it more. Is this something that toyota adds at all? or Can add?

I have the Dynamic if that makes a difference.

indeed they are. You can connection Android..

I read the 2019 model has it, or will have it? But the lady also told me thats the US version and they are different to the EU ones and they had no information on when and if it would arrive tot he eu toyotas? I think it was something to make the sale but I think its something I can live without.

Not like keyless entry and other must have's that if it did not have I would not have bought the CHR

Carplay is present on 2019 models, but in the USA only. They use different software for the entertainment system

Thanks! I hope it helps and allows us to add Apple carplay to our cars.

Signed (and donated). With there being no sensible place to mount my phone (currently on the holder that clips to the hazard light button: therefore obscuring both that and the climate controls…), and being disabled, CarPlay would make my life both safer and easier.

[Why on earth the Aygo is the only UK car to get it; but I think it is now standard in the US… – well, who knows?!!]
