In a piece written on The New York Times, the car manufacturer does not have plans to implement the iPhone-makers CarPlay on any of its vehicles in the United States. Toyota previously said they will be implementing the dashboard replacement throughout the year.
John Hanson, the national manager of Toyota’s advanced technology communications, told the New York Times that they talk frequently with Apple. Even though they have no plans on bringing CarPlay to its United States Vehicles, that doesn’t completely rule out the feature coming in the future.
“We may all eventually wind up there, but right now we prefer to use our in-house proprietary platforms for those kinds of functions,” Hanson said. He ruled out implementing Android Auto as well. Though, Hanson hasn’t commented on the international rollout for either platforms.
CarPlay, announced in 2013, works with lightning-enabled iPhones (this includes iPhone 5, 5c, 5s, 6 and 6 Plus), allowing users to have access to various features via Siri on your cars dashboard.
