So what new 2020 owner do we need to bribe to figure out if the new head unit will indeed work in older model years?

Any Toyota parts folks able to lookup the new head unit and pull specs?

I cant imagine i couldn't get the new 8" unit and not be able to put it in my 2019. But i am sure its going to be costly but pretty much plug and play with maybe some minor mods. It looks like they down sized the knobs and audio buttons to make the screen bigger without having to completely redue the dash.

If you like google maps and being able to say "Ok google, give me directions to xyz" and then the directions start right up, using voice to text while driving, or if you like being able to use Spotify, Google Music, etc when driving then Android Auto / Apple Carplay should be very appealing. Especially if you're in a state where touching your phone while driving is illegal.

New poster here. If you don't do the factory swap, what is everyone else doing for a head unit to enable apple car play? I just installed a pioneer on my Raptor and it is ok. I would like to do the same thing to my TRD PRO but would like to try a different brand. Has anyone had success?

Thanks!

I don't use Apple products but you could do what i have always done with my Android phones. Will do everything car play will do plus more.
Mount your smart phone in a convenient easy to see place and utilize it connected to the current head unit via BT.





Not only can you use it like car play but your phone will also get charged.

For me i would rather an Apple or Android smartphone/screen than a Toyota. Its a superior platform.

Does one's iPhone have to be physically connected to the radio to utilize Apple Car Play or can the connection be established and used via BluTooth?

I am going to post a "Crowd Funding Project" in order to buy a new OEM 2020 Headunit and try to retrofit it to older T4Rs 5th Gen, and then share the results with all.

The cost of the unit is about $3000 now. So If 100 people fund $30/ea, we will have enough money to start the project. If the project does not raise $3000, those who paid, will get their money refund.

I own a TRD Pro 2017 and I love to update its infotainment with the OEM 2020. It seems no one has done it yet, and no one is ready to take the risk to try!

What is your opinion?

Since you are asking for opinions. It seems like your not ready to take the risk either. You know by having everyone buy you a head unit. No one has done it because it's too f'king expensive and not really a viable alternative when you can get a high-end aftermarket HU for less than a third of the price. People are always ready to trust a new user with one post. But hey, you never know, good luck with your crowdfund... more power to you if it succeeds.

You are right my friend. I am not a blogger, or in any sense an active forum/ social media advocate. In fact, I started my research few days ago on HU options in the market for my T4R... I read the reviews on T9 and Alpine haolo9, etc, which all come with trade offs that I know they will get under my skin. The only good options to my picky attitude are
(1) Apple CarPlay integration kit using Aux of existing HU ($300),
(2) Retrofitting the new 2020 OEM HU ($3,000 - preferred)

Then I read the thread here and thought to post the crownfunding idea. As you said, I should not expect trust as a new member. I dont expect to do it myself either (though I am willing to do it, if better candidate doesn't show up).

Or, even we can agree on a contract in Crowdfunding website: If sufficient fund is raised (per se $3,000), and the project becomes successful, the person who gets the HU, pays back others their paid share. If not successful, he should sell the HU in ebay and split/share the loss. He will have 3 month to finish the project after the money is raised.... or something like that.

If there is someone who is willing to take the initiative and spend some time managing the project, I will be the 1st person to send my pledge.

Anyone ready?

Anyone know if there will be a T10 head unit to come along as the successor to the T9 head unit that a good portion of people seem to like?
