I really have a hard time understanding why nav is even an option anymore. That tech has come and gone and been surpassed wither better features on our phones and AA/ACP.

You really can't expect anything great out of the 4Runner though, it's a refreshed version of a truck that came out in 2010 which then itself was a marginal redesign on the truck that came out in 2003. Also, they sell them to people who DON'T want tech in their cars. It's kind of the point, living in a bygone era in 2020. The GX and LX which are similarly old vehicles are also pretty outdated compared to modern trucks, but you don't buy them for the technology either.

Look at their "mainstream" products though. The RAV4, Camry, Corolla, etc all have very competitive headunits and technology.

You're correct. The only reason I noticed is that I started looking in to 4Runners, since I'm starting to get in to a bit of overlanding and car camping (mainly to go bouldering). And 4Runners/Jeep has the most drawer system available. But I still want the creature comfort of Android Auto, adapted cruise control, etc...

Although, I get it. They still sell a ton of 4runners whether I'm part of it or not.

Yes they did. I'll see what they have next year for it. Because I'm torn between the Taco and the 4Runner. The Taco has the side/front cameras to help you navigate terrain better. If they put that same thing on the 4Runner next year, I might jump ship.

Cameras only on the TRD Pro Taco and has Electronic Transfer case.
4Runner has Manual Tranfer case on the TRD Off-Road and PRO

After, owning a '17 TRD Off-road Taco, I'd rather have the 4.0L in the 4Runner over the 3.5L in the Taco again.

The taco you really gotta rev it crawling, and it just doesn't sound great, with or without exhaust.
