    Android Auto in future Highlanders for Android users

    Google just announced Android Auto, which will compete with Apple's CarPlay for your Highlander/Entune infotainment in-car experience (even though Toyota has not yet announced it will partner with Google's Open Automotive Alliance/Android Auto, it's just a matter of time before it will) with lots of voice controls to minimize driver distractions, but we probably won't see it in a new Highlander until the 2016 or 2017 Highlander.

    2015 Highlander production to begin in July, with dealer delivery shortly thereafter

    Probably not many changes, if any, except possibly exterior paint; check it out: (http:// "http://www.landerfan.com/archives/release-date-of-the-2015-toyota-highlander/")

    And as you probably know the mid-sized SUV 2015 Highlander is virtually unchanged from the 2014, except price.

    I was at the Miami Auto show this past Saturday. The highlander really looked nice. Toyota had a test drive track with the only SUV being the RAV4. Would think they would have a highlander available.

    Apple's Tim Cook yesterday announced CarPlay is coming to 40 car models by the end of the year.

    Does this mean the Highlander will get the factory installed CarPlay on the 2016 or 2017 HL? Anyone with info on this subject from Toyota sales staff?

    It seems that some people want to turn cars into mobile entertainment stations. It's a car, you don't need to connect your phone to the car. Jeez.

    Orangeman99, while I respect your opinion, for many people cars and pick-up trucks, besides providing basic transportation, are in fact mobile entertainment centers/stations. Since this is the case for the majority of drivers, these new smartphone/auto tech systems, if properly implemented, will make driving a much safer experience while listening to our favorite music/playlists, navigating to our destinations, and communicating with others in a much less distracting way. It's not a matter of will the implementation of Apple's CarPlay and Google's Android Auto happen, it's just when it will happen. In my opinion, the sooner the better.
