Has anybody been successful in either USB tether or Bluetooth tethering? The only way I have been able to get connectivity is through a WiFi hotspot. This is not the long term solution I am hoping for.

I am using a Google Pixel 2XL.

I also cannot get the DVR camera to work. When plugged in it identifies as a USB Media device, but I can't get any video to show up?

Other than that, the unit has been very impressive.

I'm not sure what topo maps are, but if it runs on android it should work. Bluetooth works for playing music and phone calls, but not to surf the web. I use a macro app on my phone to automatically connect to my wifi hotspot when my bluetooth connection is detected. So when I get in my car it automatically connects to my phones data. I only use this for pandora sometimes.

I have a cheap limited data cell phone plan so I download offline maps to google maps and generally don't use too much data on the road. Use the ucam app for the dvr. It came with the unit. Works fine on mine. I used EZpass tape and mounted it by the rearview mirror.

Did you ever find an answer to this? I'm looking for the simplest plug-n-play head unit that works with the JBL system

From what I've seen, if want to install one of these Android Units (I am totally planning on doing this), you must let the manufacture know that this will be plugged into a Toyota JBL system. A lot of the units for sale (on aliexpress or whatever) are compatible, but some hardware has to be included in order for it to work properly.
