    Default Screenmirror Toyota Fortuner New radio

    According to dealer and Toyota SA is the Screenmirror facility in the stock standard radio not supported in South Africa although provisioned in the software. Shocking that Toyota is not taking cellphone safety serious in SA. This feature has been in the standard radio for years. On enquiry the answer was they are working on it but the release date may be a while or never

    Yes,Maps, sms, whatsapp etc. And the car has the trending functions to keepup with all modern cars today but Toyota SA decides not to use it. Most other Fortuners in other countries has the function supported

    Mirror link is rubbish anyway. It's dying and has diminishing support due to apple carplay and android auto taking over.

    Interestingly Toyota is very reluctant to support the like of apple carplay. And it's all about branding. They don't want their cars to look like an apple device inside. Which is kind of silly but just the way it is.

    Although it seems apple car play might finally be coming to selected lexus and toyota models in 2018.

    On the new radios Mirrorlink is not operable and Miracast is only operable on android!
    TSA is busy investigating the problem with the Mirrorlink and searching for possible solutions!
