I though the USA models have had it from the start?

That's the Entune system used in N. America & Australia (possibly other areas too) which has had it available for several months. It comes from a different oem & wouldn't be suitable here. Afaik CarPlay has not yet arrived on Touch2/MM17.

Let us hope Toyota tech digits are extracted soon and our "state of the art" Toyota models can catch up with inferior competition who do offer smartphone connectivity? My one and only disappointment with my car.

Any chance of retrofitting this feature (and also Android Auto) to models already issued? Mine is from March 2019 and I hope I can add that at some point.

I'm in the same boat. I love the car but shocked beyond belief at the lack of smartphone integration (android for me). I hope they do add it and allow it to be retrospectively added to Corollas. I intended to keep the car 7-10 years ,so that long without smartphone integration is crazy and certainly would make me look elsewhere in future (as much as I like the car!)

Have to wait and see.

Certainly with the Aygo, which uses a different system to Touch 2/MM17, they use a different head unit for smartphone integrated models, and retro-fitting isn't possible to older units or those without smartphone integration.

The video looks wonderful, but could it be upgraded to old model cars? If couldn't, may have to consider to replace an aftermarket android unit, I was looking to replace an XTRONS unit. 😥

Good news!

In Poland since few days it is mentioned in price list document - Android Auto & Apple Carplay option for about 200£ (1000PLN) 

https://pdf.sites.toyota.pl/spec_nowa_corolla_ts_kombi.pdf

I've got additional info from Toyota Motor Poland - that connect option is possible for car that will be produced since October 2019

There will be also an update available in 2020Q1 for existing cars for about 500PLN

Wow thats great news! so if they retrofit/update in the UK then 500PLN = about £100? seems like a bargain to bring the car into the 21st century

krk_man, great news. Thank you for the update. You inspired me to contact Toyota Slovakia and they've just confirmed me that HB/TS should be produced with this packet from 11/2019 and SD from 12/2019.
Unfortunately, they couldn't confirm yet,if it will be possible to retrofit. Although I'm positive after your post, I'm still remaining cautious.

One of the main reasons I’ve been on the fence is no Android auto. My dealer thinks it’s coming but couldn’t confirm so this is encouraging.

Would be nice if they could match the U.K. spec with heated half leather and an option to upgrade audio. Hopefully the 2020 will have this as their competitors here in Ireland are offering all for a very similar price, some cheaper.

I hope if this is an option to retro fit to 2019 models they also include an extra USB socket as well.
