Hi all,

Just an FYI, this is the response I got from Toyota Australia in regards to the implementation of Apple CarPlay. I was one of the preorder customers and I sent it to the Supra concierge service.

"Thank you for your email. Apologies for the delayed reply.


At this stage I’ve been advised that there is no confirmed timeline for Australia as yet."

Hey mate, I have had a third party activate my Apple CarPlay and I’ve been using it without problems for months now. The functionality is definitely built in, Toyota Australia are just screwing us.

A quick Google re "CarPlay activation BMW Supra" should do the trick.
There's tonnes of options out there, none officially endorsed by Toyota/BMW.

I searched on google and found a site that activated it for me for under $100, was quick and easy tbh, now i've just gotta figure out how to get apple carplay in fullscreen as alot of people are having issues with it split screening.

Thanks for the update .... I had actually found a dude on ebay that got it activated for under $75AUD..definitely much cheaper that some of the other sites I've seen advertising this carplay activation for the GR Supra

Word of advice - don't do the carplay install first if ur thinking about using Bimmercode to code the head unit settings.

Code the head unit ECU settings first in Bimmercode and then do the carplay activation.

Hi mate, quick one, what version was yours? Mine is NBTevo_T18501l so guessing I will need to use the Enet cable rather than the USB?
