    I got a 2019 Prime Plus with the 7" Radio and would like to upgrade to an Apple CarPlay compatible system I live in Texas, and visited a Car Toys and they showed me several units that are compatible, however I went back to do the upgrade and they told me they don't have an unit that fits my car. I have seen some Prius owner which have done it. Any feedback where I can get it done and which radio system it is, without losing any of the OEM features such as backup camera etc Thanks for your help!

    Thanks Bisco, Toyota will only include 3 models from 2019 to be upgraded to CarPlay That is the answer Toyota customer headquarters provided me

    It's the same as this generation of prius for mounting purposes. Parts for me (I don't have a lot of posts so no links, sorry):

    NEW-IMC-AUDIO-AXXESS-AX-TOYUSB-TOYOTA-LEXUS-ADAPTOR

    Scosche-LSAAB-for-Toyota-Lexus-to-install-Aftermarket-Radio-Antenna-Adapter

    ADS-MRR-MAESTRO-RR-IDATATLINK-RADIO-REPLACEMENT-STEERING-WHEEL-INTERFACE

    HRN-RR-TO2-IDATALINK-MAESTRO-TO2-TOYOTA-SCION-HARNESS-FOR-ADS-MRR

    TOYK932GB-2016-Prius-Dash-Mounting (This is the mounting bracket)

    They may have changed some of the parts in the back like the usb port but it should work for you. This setup worked for both a 2018 and 2019 plus. The 2020 LE is a different head unit.
