Hi All,

I'm new on this forum. I am currently in the process of buying a Rav4 Hybrid in the Netherlands. Personally I'm not impressed about the standard nav system in the RAV4, however nowadays all manufacturers offer Android Auto or Apple Carplay to use google maps / waze in the car....but...not Toyota.

I just received a message from the dealer, that both Android Auto and Apple Carplay are not active in Europe.... Does anyone know more about this? Any plans. To my understanding it should be just a software update...

If I read this forum Apple Carplay is possible in the RAV4 in the states.... What I also heard is that the new Aygo will have both Android Auto and Apple Carplay activated....
The same problem in Italy. it's strange that a super car like Rav 4 Hybrid, does not have the tools to connect an android phone to the car system. can it be solved in some way?
Thanks. Zeev

In the US they have complete different hard- and software... Entune is very specific for over there. Australia has similar systems with ours, and they will receive the upgrade starting just around today.
I know but my point was about how you convince Toyota (any other manufacturer) to do something like this.

Had the Apple Carplay/Android Auto installed today
The changes are BezelMap Lamp and Microphone Assy replaced (old microphone not compatible with Siri)
2 software updates One for the navigation software (40 minutes)
The other one for Carplay/Android Auto (40 minutes)
Have got picture off Bezel before and after.
Question: Is your car Japan built or US ??? Do you know the manufacturer of the stereo unit???
Thanks Stefan

I have wrote to Toyota Support and this is the anser that they have given to me:


Dear Mr. Bogdan,

Thank you for taking time to contact Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc. and we appreciate the opportunity to address your inquiry regarding the inclusion of Android Auto® in our vehicles.

While Toyota strives to innovate and look for ways to include new technology in our vehicles, Toyota has not announced an Android Auto® retrofit strategy at this time. We certainly appreciate your inquiry and interest. You can sign up for the latest updates with our RSS Feeds and/or receive email alerts when new information is posted in the Toyota USA Newsroom.

Sow, I do not now if I show hope to an update here in Romania.

I think you wrote to Toyota USA and they use a diferent multimedia system. You need to write to Toyota Romania and/or Toyota Europe.

From reading other posts here, it seems that you have a different head unit to Europe. Perhaps there is more involved hardware replacement here.
It would be great if ours was free but just to have it confirmed that it can even be done on UK models is a step in the right direction.

Here, in Spain, the internal bulletin says that all new RAV4 come with AA and CP and old cars, are still working on the retrofit. They think that in Q1 2020 will give us "news"

As already stated the upgrade for the RAV4.5 (and probably the Corolla as well) in The Netherlands will also be available from May 2020, and FREE OF CHARGE!

If I'm not mistaken, it's just a basic trim level. Naming of trim levels is different in each country. Eg, British Icon grade seems to correspond more or less with "Active" grade (the lowest trim available) in Poland, where I live.
