Apple Carplay for Lexus NX

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

It looks like our american friends they received the update for apple Carplay! 

They can do it without the dealer. I have a NX300 2018 year and wondering if this update will work with European Lexus's.

Here is a full topic: https://www.clublexus.com/forums/nx-models-2015-present/878189-lexus-enform-2-0-to-update-with-apple-carplay-15.html

And here you can download the update for your NX: https://www.intrustech.com/entune3carplay/

If someones wanna try, would be perfect. I am outside the country, so I can't for now.

Enform is USA and not available uk as far as I know. So unlikely to work on uk/european systems and subsequently may corrupt your system.

I am not quite sure if it will corrupt the system. I am only interested to have apple Carplay. This is not about to update Enform. Enform it's a built-in app only. This update is for head unit, it means for whole multimedia system.

I talked to Polish Lexus dealer and still they are "talking" , if european Lexus division will get the same like US part.

The headunit and nav systems are different in different regions. The NX uses Panasonic, Pioneer, or Fujitsu Ten stereo systems - multiple different part codes for each manufacturer. You cannot use US firmware on a UK unit.

Thanks. I hope they will release an update also for Europe like they did for US. 

But it's Lexus. You never know what they are thinking.

Given Mazda UK charged customers £350 for fitting AC and AA to 2014 cars onwards I suspect if Lexus ever sort their act out they may follow Mazda’s prices.  But you never know with Lexus.

For info Mazda changed the USB module and ran two new cables from the module to the back of the screen. Existing cables were left in the car. Required a large software update too.  Took about 1-2 hours in total depending on the fitter.
