Thread starter jsantana Start date Aug 9, I had a car with Android Auto and I loved it. I do not like the Scout GPS, its not good at all, lots of connection problem, the map is crappy and it glitches a lot. I hope that Toyota adds to the list of their cars Android Auto for the Corolla via and update. I been a Toyota Fan for a long time, but the lack of Android Auto disappoints me.
SofTec New Member Sep 19, I feel the same way. I have the Corolla SE. Entune is a pig. Map does not work. Need Android Auto. Excoastie New Member Jan 13, I read on another forum that somewhere around May Toyota is supposed to be rolling out an update that will include Android Auto compatibility.
I suspect that it will not be free; I'm new to Toyota, but every other manufacturer tends to charge for what should have been included to start with.
As with most things, seeing is believing so I am not holding my breath. SofTec New Member Jan 13, Excoastie said:. Excoastie New Member Feb 5, SofTec New Member Feb 5, A friend and former coworker now works as a "service writer" for the local dealer.
Android Auto is an excellent way to enhance your driving experience. You can get turn-by-turn directions, stream your music library, interact with Google Assistant, send text messages, and more. In a nutshell, most cars manufactured within the last few years support both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The head unit just serves as a touch-capable display.
If you own a device with Android 9 Pie or later, you have to download and install the Android Auto app from Google Play. Android Auto is built into Android 10 and newer. Most cars that support Android Auto require a physical USB tether to the in-dash infotainment center.
More recent vehicles might support Android Auto wirelessly, in which case, you only need the USB tether for the initial setup. After that, your phone communicates to the in-dash head via Wi-Fi. The following phones support wireless Android Auto:. The following car manufacturers are currently working on including Android Auto on future models:. The Best Tech Newsletter Anywhere.

The software update that enables Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support on select Toyota models is finally ready, and it has reached the web on several forums. The updating process, however, is different in each case — one method involves three different USB sticks that would first prepare the system for the update, then install the new multimedia software, and eventually enable Android Auto and CarPlay.
Up to this point, several Corolla owners have confirmed they updated their head units using the steps and the files provided on the page we linked above. No matter if the update is successful or not, the process can take up to 40 to 50 minutes, so make sure you give it enough time to complete should you decide to eventually try out the whole thing. As far as the authorized Toyota dealerships are concerned, they seem to claim that the official update would become available for their clients in September or October.
The new USB drives for the update have reportedly been ordered already, but it could still take a few more weeks until the new software version can be installed on the first cars.

I like the way both teams play, and I think Leicester are coming back into a bit of form - especially Riyad Mahrez. It could be a good game. Media playback is not supported on this deviceYou can be the best attacking side in the world but if you can't defend on a given day against a good side, then you are always going to be in trouble.
Southampton came back to get a point against Bournemouth last week and I am going to go for another draw here. I don't think Saints will test Arsenal's defence in the same way United did, but they won't give too much away at the back either.

Richard's prediction: Ah, Arsenal. They win, they lose, they win, they lose. They are so inconsistent and I am trying to work out what they are due - a loss, I think - sorry Gunners fans. This early spell is when Sam Allardyce usually has a big effect on results, but I think Liverpool might alter that statistic on this occasion. Media playback is not supported on this deviceBecause of their Europa League tie on Thursday, Allardyce will not have had much time to train with his squad, Everton ship a lot of goals and boy do Liverpool like scoring them at the moment.
The Reds record in front of goal is just staggering, as is the amount of chances they are creating at the moment too,It will not be one-way traffic - it is a derby, and I know what kind of games they are - but even if it is a lot tighter, I cannot see Liverpool making lots of chances without taking a couple of them.
Richard's prediction: I think this will be a cracking game - they always seem to be - and I think there will be a few goals. I am backing Liverpool to win it, because they are at home. I just think United have hit a run of form, and their win at Arsenal last week was very comfortable and impressive. If Kompany is missing, that will give United more opportunities from set-pieces and, although City will create plenty of chances themselves, David de Gea is obviously in such fine form in goal for Jose Mourinho's side.
The key will be what Mourinho tries tactically. You know he will have a plan, and he will have had a team in mind for the past three or four matches too. So Pogba's suspension is a blow for him as far as that is concerned, but I just have a feeling United will go and beat City, in not a particularly good game.
Richard's prediction: City look absolutely unstoppable - what a pleasure it has been watching them this season.
