    I downloaded the EnTune upgrade patch to upgrade from the factory software but the head unit wouldn't recognize it. I checked around and found out that it doesn't work for Canadian Prius v.

    I'd really like to get Apple CarPlay and Spotify.

    Is there any workaround here?

    Or do I have to get a third-party head unit? If so, any recommendations?

    You need Entune3.0 hardware to support Apple CarPlay which the Prius v does not have.

    Additionally, the Prius v did not come with Entune in Canada (it was disabled at port). It's also version 2.x.

    Workaround? Well if you have the integrated factory nav (which I think you do with the Tech pack), you can stream spotify via BT audio from your phone.
