Car Model : Toyota PRADO S150 - 2019 VX
Integration of CarPlay / Android Auto
Used parts: JB150_NP
Operation video from previous installation - on 2019 Toyota Prado VX
Wired CarPlay / Wired Android auto.
Why & How ?
Both CarPlay & Android Auto grants NAV with latest map, via Google / Apple Map and Waze.
Not to mention that media players like Spotify / iTunes / Audible / and those Digital Radio / podcast apps.
None of Toyota models came with CarPlay / Android Auto till 2019,
although activation package was introduced later on,
Prado , Kluger and LC200 are still not compatible nor supported.
With our integration product,
All of those can be integrated into the existing audio setup
CarPlay & Android Auto will be installed as form of an 'external device' that attaches to the headunit.
It is an aftermarket product hence doesn't work exactly same as the factory fitted one in current Toyota models.
Having said that, it will only play sound via AUX (external media input) and won't do fade in / out.
Nor sync with voice command function button on the steering wheel.
However It still uses the original touch screen and sound system.
Apple CarPlay -
Used iPhone 11s
with latest iOS 13.4
Android Auto -
Used Samsung S10+
CarPlay / Android auto Module : Contains CarPlay / Android Auto License and dedicated chipset
Video Interface Module : Transfers the image generated from Module box, to audio screen of the car.
Certain products of ours have both modules merged into one.
Cable loom : Literally those cable / connectors needed for installation.
They will connected between those 2 and also audio headunit in the vehicle.
USB Extension Cable: Used for creation of Female USB input (flush mount) on desired location.

If you are using Wireless CarPlay, certain devices will use this Mic for phone call also.
Also, certian device of our unit will not need external mic at all,
as It will 'wake up' the original Mic for voice command.
