The Polaris Hilux Maxx’s huge 10.1 inch screen is attached to a single din unit that sits flush in the dash. The Hilux Maxx is a slightly larger screen than the original unit so it fits perfectly and doesn’t conceal any other functions in the car. This in dash GPS is the perfect all in one solution for the unbreakable Toyota Hilux.

Both apps were designed to let you use certain apps from your phone on the head unit for safer driving. Think of it as like an extension of your phone but limited to certain apps such as: maps, messages, music apps and podcasts.
Yes you can still use your IPhone even though it is an Android head unit.
Even though the unit has android operating software, this doesn’t mean that you can’t use your iPhone with the Hilux Maxx(and no you don’t need to buy the CarPlay dongle). Your iPhone will still connect via bluetooth for handsfree functionality and most of the apps that you use on your iPhone can be downloaded directly on the head unit itself. Apps such as Apple music, Spotify, Waze and much more can all be added to the Hilux Maxx.
