Apple CarPlay® & Android Auto in the 2020 Toyota Tacoma


Meet Your 2020 Toyota Tacoma Driving Assistant

The 2020 Toyota Tacoma seems to bring it all. Rugged looks combined with powerful performance is what it’s all about. But get behind the wheel, and you’ll find highly desired technologies that will make your drive even easier than before. The Toyota Tacoma now offers Android Auto and Apple CarPlay® as standard features. Stop by Toyota of Rock Hill for a test drive to try out these two features.

How Do You Connect to Android Auto & Apple CarPlay?

  1. Download the appropriate app (Android Auto for Android users/ Apple CarPlay for iOS® users) to your smartphone
  2. Open the app on your phone
  3. Connect your phone with a USB cord
  4. Choose “Enable Once”
  5. Open the Android Auto/Apple CarPlay from the touch display

Android Auto: Make Google Assistant Your Personal Assistant

Once you connect your Android device to your 2020 Toyota Tacoma, use your voice to tell Google Assistant what you want. No need to ever take your eyes off the road or your hands off the wheel.

Need directions to your appointment ASAP? Google maps and Waze upload the fastest route with turn-by-turn directions. Real-time traffic alerts help you avoid hazards, speed traps, and traffic jams. Did you just hear your phone ding with a text alert? Ask Google Assistant to read your message out loud. Then, dictate a message back to your assistant to respond. Texting doesn’t get easier than that. Next, you’ll need some music to get you through your drive. Whether it’s house beats to wake you up or smooth jazz to settle you down, Google Assistant plays your favorite tracks.

Your iPhone® Apps Like You Never Imagined

Who would have thought your best 2020 Toyota Tacoma co-pilot was on your phone? Tell Siri® what to do, and she’s on it.

Start by asking Siri to take you on your next adventure, and Apple Maps leads the way. You’ll receive turn-by-turn directions with a 3D display. Siri also points out any points of interest, local restaurants, and nearby gas stations while you navigate to your destination.

Siri also handles your texts for you. Ask her to read them out aloud, and then dictate a response while keeping your focus on the road.

Open Apple Music® to jam out to your favorite tunes (or podcasts and audiobooks). Any audio stored on your iPhone can play in your 2020 Toyota Tacoma. And with more than 100,000 live radio stations ready for streaming, you’ll find something that fits your tastes. Plus, Apple CarPlay supports third-party music streaming apps. Pull up your favorite playlists and make it a fun drive.

Got a busy day? Apple CarPlay opens your calendar on the touch display. From here, you can get a quick glance of your plans. This also allows you to call into a meeting or tap to get directions to important appointments.
