    This looks like the only retrofit option for adding CarPlay to the OEM Entune 2.0 head unit. I don't want to put down $500 just to return it and pay a 20% restocking fee because it doesn't work well. Looks like they make high quality products and specialize in Toyotas more than most other brands.

    I don't want an aftermarket head unit either even though Entune is terrible (I value the stock aesthetics). Has anyone tried this product or am I the guinea pig?

    Currently rocking an Alpine Halo9 with the iDatalink Maestro RR, can confirm that everything works great including the speakers and steering wheel controls

    Edit: you can order facia kits from AliExpress for about AU$70, I'm currently using this.

    I agree. $500 is steep for that . I saw a Ford upgrade for $50, why is Toyota’s so expensive?


    iPhone ?
