I just looked at the 2020 Camry Navigation and Multimedia manual and on page 63 it talks about how to establish an android auto connection. So its confirmed that android auto is coming to 2020 camry but still not confirmed if its coming to 2018-2019 camry.

Here is the manual to see for yourself.

Thanks for the heads up. Have been searching every week to see when it's confirmed. I'm quite sure it's coming to the 2019 Rav4, and Toyota Australia has already promised it via a software upgrade, but with the 8th Gen Camry being over a year older, we can't be sure the hardware was designed with the upgrade in mind. I'm really hoping it is, as I'd prefer to pick up a discounted 2019 than to have to pay close to MSRP for a 2020 in a couple months. On a related note, have you seen the 2020 Rav4 multimedia manual (OM0R026U on Helm) yet? Not sure how you got the Camry one.

Yeah, the 2020 Rav4 is getting android auto too.

Regarding the hardware, when it comes to carplay or android auto, the phone does all the heavy lifting while the hardware or entune just displays it on the screen or mirrors it.

Here is hoping they do offer it to the 2018. I mean they went through all that trouble to get Carplay, why not just offer the Android Auto in addition. *FINGERS CROSSED*

Because that would be too consumer friendly? The right thing to do? Market share of Android is way larger than Apples? :rolleyes:

Seriously, I hope they do offer it to the 2018s as well.

The 2018s and 2019s will get the Android Auto update eventually, but at a later date. I’m predicting maybe around Spring 2021 (based on patterns).

With that said, I got an email from Toyota stating that Entune 3.0 is now renamed Toyota Connected Service. They started using the new name starting with the 2020 Corollas but now they are expanding throughout the entire lineup.

I am waiting to see if there is going to be an update for the 2019 Camry, but if not I will try a friends Apple phone on the car. If I like it I will buy a used Apple phone for the car. No big deal. Meanwhile, I don't really mind the Android apps. The jazz stations on the LiveXlive are fine. Sirius XM is OK. Not really sure what else is needed.

Hopefully sooner. Waiting that long starts getting into the "why bother?" territory.

What's that old saying about "lipstick on a pig" ?

Is the 2020 owner’s manual available anywhere yet? I checked the Toyota Owners site but they haven’t posted it there yet. Wanted to flip through it to see if there were any new features for 2020 (other than Android Auto).

I've been looking through it myself and the only one I found that is new is Seat Ventilators.

I believe they will add it at one point as the European edition has it. Watch! For 2021, they will add fog lamps. Lol

Another new feature is automatic engine off. I believe i read it in an article that toyota is going to start implementing this to all vehicles. So if the car is in park and the engine is on for an hour, it'll turn off the engine.

Emailed to Toyota and asked about the AA update on 2018 and 2019. Below is the response which is the same when I asked about AC.

“Thank you for taking time to contact Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc. and we appreciate the opportunity to address your inquiry regarding the inclusion of Android Auto® in our vehicles.

While Toyota strives to innovate and look for ways to include new technology in our vehicles, Toyota has not announced an Android Auto® retrofit strategy at this time. We certainly appreciate your inquiry and interest. You can sign up for the latest updates with our RSS Feeds and/or receive email alerts when new information is posted in the Toyota USA Newsroom.

Your email has been documented at our National Headquarters. If we can be of further assistance, please feel free to contact us.”

It's year 2018 all over again. It's the same response that we got asking for carplay. Don't rely on those responses. Just have to wait until toyota officially announces it. The way we found out about carplay is from the tacoma or tundra forum which leaked an internal email sent to the dealers from toyota. It may take a year for an android auto update, hopefully sooner.
