I did the activation process with my laptop connected, it said it's been done successfully, but no changes on the screen, no option for Carplay on home screen or anything. Disconnected and reconnected my phone, tried connecting with the cable too but nothing happened, I've Whatsapped them at the number they provided, awaiting their reply. Maybe I'm missing a step idk :(

Yeah, I tried everything, about to get the wifi antenna ting installed soon inshallah. Will try with that and hopefully it'll work. Normal bluetooth and that is working but I think there's some issue with the wifi connection it's not showing up on my phone, tried my friend's android for screen mirroring the wifi name showed up on his phone but was asking for some password idk why ...

Hello,
i just have a question..
i got my carplay activated but i'm facing the same issue that you have, the wifi signal is very weak and the phone has to stay put in one place,
my question is have you figured out the place of the wireless antenna for carplay ?

Thanks.

Hey folks,

I just got my preowned Supra 2020 from the showroom and I had made so much research about it before buying.
Now that I took it out I’m disappointed with the no car play situation.
can you please guide me with the buying option mentioned here, does this just unlock it? Does it void warranty?
it seems as though we should be having things like weather too and SupraConnect which has an app that is not available in our region (it has some nice options: unlocking car, turning on ac etc)
The car would be connected with its own LTE which also I can’t find the option here.

would be great if we can make a group where we can call eachother for help and tips for expert owners for newbies like myself to share and reapply some learnings.

how do we go on about that?

Mine wasn't even getting connected to the WiFi, the name wasn't even showing up unless I manually typed it in search.
I know someone who got the antenna installed here in Dubai from this garage, I'm just waiting for Toyota's response, if they'll do it for free or will I have to get installed from outside.

Hi, I had all the same questions when I got the car like you have now. As per Apple Carplay you can just read all the messages on this forum. As per the warranty, when I asked at the showroom they said if there's a short circuit or any such issues during the process of installation your warranty would be void, but it doesn't affect the warranty otherwise. Toyota Connect would've been a great feature to have, but again sadly not available in our region.

There's a GR Supra UAE group, you can find them on Instagram and send a message to be a part of it- grsupra.uae

i had the same issue, and restarted the screen (hard reset), hold on the on button of the car audio system for 40 seconds, let go when it gets black, then it will start again automatically, and you will find it ...

I tried all that, I guess I've got to get a WiFi antenna ting installed, I've contacted the dealership to see if they can sort me out, but what I've heard from others experience I doubt they'd be of any help, so I'll prolly' get it done from elsewhere soon inshallah

Hello there,

Thanks for sharing, the issue is that i'm in saudi arabia.
All I need to know is where the wifi antenna is located and I think i can do the job.
