    Yes finally! I love Sony Xperias so I could never switch to Apple.

    Working as a sales rep in a Lexus dealer, i can assure you that way more than 20% of customer are using an Android phone. And nowadays, the technology is so important to the business class (our targeted customers) i truly believe that having Android auto to the Lexus lineup would bring new customers and that 20% would be more like 40%.

    According to my inside source there will be only one 2020 Lexus model with Android Auto.
    And yes, when I worked at a Lexus dealership, Android phone use by customers and employees was MUCH higher than 20%

    I'm ditching Lexus at this point because of lacking Android Auto (or their funky infotainment system). I have signed up for the Audi monthly subscriptions($1385 per month to swap 5 models from Audi). I have already driven S5 Q5 and Q7. The system is miles better in my personal opinion. It at least display foreign characters correctly.

    Yeah similar things, but that one is much more expensive.

    we will know as soon as they introduce first model... but these Toyota models all use Entune 3.0, so i dont see why they wont be rolling out super fast to newer Toyota's, and then also like Car Play roll out to all Lexus models with newer multimedia, that already have Car Play.

    Only thing that I would not be sure is Europe, because they have completely different policies there, but since Yaris is getting it, then all other TMC models might be getting it soon enough.

    Except "RX" does not have Enform App Suite 2.0, so I would give that statement a quick edit and omit RX. :)

    Damn shame it's not possible to retrofit by upload on my 2018 LC, that's not the way to handle customer satisfaction, specially for a car in this price range...
