    Yes mine is a 86140-04250 (Canada spec w/ nav). Presumably the same hardware as the USA spec but different software which limits the traffic and weather functions and we don't get nearly the amount of 3rd party apps you guys do.

    The harness he is sending me will need to be spliced in as well (12v, GND and vehicle speed), which I don't mind doing. Thanks for being the guinea pig on this, can't wait to get this thing working 100%.

    Part numbers below for your reference (from the 2020 parts list thread)

    If any of you are looking to offload a 2020+ JBL equipped head unit with android auto, hit me up. Willing to go through the trouble to replace the Entune 2.0 JBL in mine.

    Why do you keep chiming in with all the negativity?

    I won't be doing this upgrade. I can see why other's might want to. I'm a luddite and don't care if my i-phone can pair to a head unit seamlessly

    Im being real. The JBL premium head unit in the 20/21 really is THAT bad. Its shocking to me that anyone would spend hundreds of dollars to swap it into their truck.

    Why are you here then?

    Dog shit or not I'd prefer to keep all OEM capabilities and keep the OEM look.

    The closest I could get would be to do an Android head unit, which from a cyber security point of view is absolutely increasing my vulnerability footprint as these units are typically made in China and do not get the continuing updates required to make them secure. The OEM head unit, while not updated as often as even a Chinese unit, is closed source which makes it a matter of reverse engineering to crack. That in it of itself should make people wary.

    But also, I'm not looking for every feature under the sun, I am content with the capabilities of the OEM head unit and would prefer to add just the capability I want which is Android Auto and Apple car play, without losing ANY capabilities.

    Finally got this working. Had some delays due to personal reasons and then I wired it incorrectly at first which added further, unnecessary troubleshooting. Bottom line, autoharnesshouse harness worked and this 2020 navigation system is working 100% in my 2018. Love android auto and I prefer this headunit over the original. It still feels like an OEM unit but it at least feels like an OEM unit from this century.

    Wired only. There are many threads about the CPLAY2Air device with the Entune 3.0 radios that we’re all using in these retrofits. Trying it out is next on my list. :)

    I see. So in order to use Apple Maps (or google maps? Maybe), phone has to be connected, correct?

    Nice music choice too.

    Yes, for any Carplay or Android Auto feature the phone must be connected with USB.

    Supposedly with the CPLAY2Air device it all works wirelessly but I can’t speak from personal experience yet.

    Shout out to @IcemanPNW, @cemented and auto harness!!!

    I was able to install a 2019 Sienna 86140-08190 headunit and get it working on my 2019 TRD OR. So far I've had no issues I migrated my XM radio over so my niece can listen to radio Disney when she hangs with me, apple car play works like a dream, and my bass is better which surprised me. The only thing would be no NAV, or HD weather via the head unit but that was expected and I don't need it. Everything else works as it should! So stoked!

    Not enough
    Good morning - I am curious if I have to get a JBL headunit for this conversion since my 2019 Tacoma OR which has the JBL speakers? If not will the sound change with a non JBL headunit? Thanks for all the hard work you all have put into figuring this out!

    That would be correct JBL with JBL only.
