    Ugh. Why even bother if you're going to alienate over half of your users. I realize that Android Auto is still in a kinda-Beta state (especially for Samsung users), but at least that's the future and I'm expecting Google to announce a vastly improved version (hopefully) at Google IO.

    If Toyota's system is like Lexus(and I'd assume a lot of it is), you don't have to follow the prompts, you can just say 'Enter an Address' and it will then say 'Where would you like to go?' and you speak it. There are a lot of voice commands that aren't displayed on the screen.

    Interesting... QI charger, which Apple doesn't use... and commands that favor IOS. Catch-22.
