    I bought a brand new 2017 Prius 2 and I love it all except the radio unit thing. I love the other models that have an apps button and more use, is there a way to swap that into mine?

    Thanks

    There are plenty of 3rd party options, but you will be giving up some of the OEM functions that exist under the "Car" menu and "Settings."

    From the picture I found on Toyotas website, is this not easily swappable wih a higher edition? I want the entire with the app suit and not the basic radio. While keeping all my car features like us, and steering controls.

    Ah, thanks for the link, I thought I had read it was more complicated than I had originally thought. I’m considering doing an aftermarket one with Apple Play, but trying to decide if it’s worth losing some of the OEM functionality.
