How do I connect Google Maps to Toyota navigation?

Can I use Google Maps through my Toyota navigation? I always trust Google for accurate directions but I can’t get them to play over the speakers in my car.

Unfortunately, you can’t connect Google Maps to your
navigation. However, you can get your directions from Google to play over your car speakers by using Bluetooth. Or, if you have a newer model, you can pair your phone with your car using Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.
To connect your phone via Bluetooth, select Menu > Setup > Bluetooth. Then, make sure that the Bluetooth on your phone is on and wait for your car to appear in the list of possible devices. Once you click on your car, your phone should pair and you’ll be able to play audio directions from Google Maps over your speakers.
To connect your phone via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, you’ll need to download the corresponding app on your phone. Then, connect your phone via a USB cord. When your car display prompts you, select always allow.
