    So I have been shopping for a Tacoma for a couple months, been in a terrible 1st world problem. I currently have Apple Carplay in my current car, and do not want to lose it if I were to get a Tacoma. I realize that off the lot I need a 2020. I’m not trying to break the budget with a new 2020... I’ve tried to think of everything from software update to using a 2020 radio in an older model. I think I found something, and just curious if anyone has heard of or even got this product:

    2016-2020 Toyota Tacoma Entune 3.0 Radio with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto

    Essentially they take a 2020 radio and provide adapters to the original cables into, and then you plug those in the back of the 2020 radio and you get a “stock” radio with CarPlay in an older model. There is a YouTube video showing a fairly simple explanation, but the product looks newer.

    It’s cool but you can get a much better radio that has carplay on it with a bigger screen than OEM. That’s my plan if/when my radio takes a crap (or if I get too impatient waiting for it to break ;) )

    Just out of curiosity, what does Apple car play have other than the bigger screen to justify spending $2k when you can just use your phone on a mount?

    Spend some time on Crutchfield. There are a lot of options for wireless apple CarPlay, HD radio, 7+ inch screens and all of the factory radios’s settings/pages (via $175 add-on). All will have more power output than stock and cost at about half to 2/3 as much...

    Does this unit allow you to use the vehicle customization settings?
