The infotainment system is absolutely atrocious.My infotainment screen will lag and show a loading bar almost every time I change the screen. Anyone else running in to this issue?
I love my truck, Android auto works great. And yes I'd say it's way better then my wife's 21 highlander. And our 21 is way better then our 19 lol. Toyota is probably last place on the infotainment area. Again I just wish they were universal displays and we could plug in different computers. We literally got rid of our 19 Toyota because of how bad their system was. Google maps didn't even work.Coming from a 2020 Tacoma, this screen and infotainment system are night and day better. I can say I do not see much lag if any with my system though I do use Apple Car Play for any route guidance.
I am surprised by how much hate these trucks get from the owners on this forum.
I took a video of mine on start up. Is this how yours is? Doesn't seem that bad to me.If you stream Apple CarPlay or android auto, I get that it’s fine. My question is, how come the system the car comes with takes so much longer to work and is so much buggier than any other in-car system I’ve ever had?
Maybe it’s just my car though. That’s partially what I come to this community to find out. Maybe everyone else — *who isn’t streaming through phones, but rather using the standalone system Chevy put in the truck* — has no problems immediately inputting a destination from turnover, and immediately sees the whole map and can use all the Sirius presets as entered.
If you look at the hardware specs on this it's the equivalent of a very shitty low end Android phone. You would think that they would put a decent amount of RAM a good processor equivalent to the latest version Samsung Galaxy phone something that may last for the next 5 years.Yes, this is by far the worst part of this truck. It's Android Auto OS. It's terrible. It's not well thought out, it's laggy, and many times while changing stations between FM or SirusXM in the saved stations, it will just go to the last remembered station in that band. It also never remembers the layout of the screen. I removed all the Google bloat from the home screen, and every couple weeks it comes back. There's no HD radio, and the last 3rd of the screen is pointless unless you paid for the data plan (yuck) or you tow more than the average person.
For how beautiful this interior is and how nice the screens are, the OS is utter trash.
