Finally! Aftermarket Carplay and Android Auto with Entune - Individual or Group Buy
 
Hello everyone!
I have some exciting and interesting news. I have found a product that allows you to have Apple Carplay and Android Auto with Entune, plug and play. To go to Carplay/AA mode, all you do is double press the volume knob, the backup camera, and steering wheel controls still work with Carplay. You can even use the entune touch screen to control Carplay/AA. The company sent me a PDF with all of the info on the setup, PDF found here. Works with 2014-2019.
Dip Switch 4: Non-JBL radios
Dip Switch 5: JBL Radios

So if you want Carplay or AA but don't want to buy a 2020 TRDPRO, this is a great kit for a great price.

Here is a video showing this in action here.
I have been emailing back and forth with this company and have been offered a discount for a group buy. So here is the deal:

Individual buy: $428
20 orders: $363.80 (15% off)
50 or more orders: $342.40 (20% off)

If you live near LA, you also have the option to have it installed and calibrated by their team. They also accept returns and will refund you your money if it does not work out for you.

Please let me know if you are interested! Group buys, payment will not be taken until 20 requests have been made.

Links for normal people so you know you're not going some weird sketchy website:

Is there a demo video of them actually pressing icons on the screen? All it really showed is that the display works. They didn't open any apps or anything.

I currently do not have any info on that but I will send them an email. It generaly takes 24 hours to hear back from them. Not sure about weekend emails though, so it could be Monday or it could be tomorrow. Either way, I will ask about that. I too am curious.

I do not believe so but I can ask them. I will let you know if they have one.

Thank you for your concern. Whenever I post links online, I always use Bit.ly because it makes it easier to manage my links. I would never intend to send someone to some weird sketchy website because that is just wrong. Let me know if you have any questions or want more info.

Interested but im a little concerned for future support/upgrades. Is this officially supported by Apple?

Looks like itís wired only. While retaining the full OEM appearance is nice itís not too much cheaper than an Alpine CarPlay and Maestro combo

If it works like advertised, then I think it's pretty cool. Allows you to toggle between the OEM head unit (and keeps all OEM features I assume) and Carplay while using the OEM display. Some good questions have been raised but I'll be keeping an eye on this thread for sure. Would like to see a review from an actual owner on here.

Definitely interesting, will keep an eye on this as well. Would like more info/reviews from actual users though.

Doc_4Runner 03-09-2019 08:52 PM

I'm interested.
Would like to see it working on another user's truck.

Interested.Looks like you still need to add a mic though based on the product sheet. And yes, that is a lot to pack behind the dash.
