This Apple CarPlay and Android Auto upgrade allows owners to access the services included in their mobile phone on the multimedia display screen and action them through voice activation or by manually prompting through the steering wheel controls or touchscreen itself. In this way they will be able to safely enjoy applications such as Google Maps, Spotify, Amazon Music, WhatsApp and Waze without the need to directly interact with their mobile phone.

The Apple CarPlay and Android Auto upgrade for compatible vehicles will be carried out by appointment at your local Lexus centre. Lexus recommends that owners arrange to have the upgrade installed during a scheduled service. In this way it is efficiently incorporated into the technician’s time, and is priced at £80 inc VAT.

For more information on software upgrade pricing and to confirm vehicle compatibility, please contact your local Lexus centre.

*Lexus has installed its enhanced multimedia system as standard equipment across all vehicles since the 2020 model year. Depending on vehicle and specification, this means that most Lexus models with this system will feature Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality.

    1. Hello Sandro,
      Thank you for contacting Lexus.
      The Model Year 2020 Lexus LC 500 is not compatible with this upgrade.
      However, the Model Year 2022 LC 500 does come with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
      Thanks.

  2. Hi, I’ll rephrase my question.

    I already own at a UK spec 2020 LC500h.

    Considering that the American 2020 variant comes with Airplay as standard and an update for Android Auto is already available, is an update to enable both on the UK spec 2020 model expected at some point?

    1. Hello Sandro,
      Thanks for your comment.
      Unfortunately, your LC 500h is not compatible with the Apple CarPlay upgrade.
      Thanks.

    1. Hello Pawel,

      Please contact your Lexus Centre for more information.
      Thanks.

    1. Hello Tee,
      Thank you for contacting Lexus.
      Unfortunately, your Lexus was produced before September 2018, meaning it is not eligible for the upgrade.
      Thanks.
