I have a 460.
They are all great. No major issues. The mileage is shitty and requires premium gas.
You can’t easily swap out the archaic infotainment/GPS so be prepared for some hack ass solution.

If you want it for off-roading get a regular land cruiser.

It's a lot easier than most people believe. Assuming you have any sort of car audio installation knowledge.

For my 460 I installed an AliExpress piggyback unit Android PC with wireless CarPlay. It works OK, but not wonderful.
The 470 you can get the Grom units or the full Tesla style.
Having A/C controls integrated into the infotainment is what makes it a difficult thing.

What year? I don't recall the temp controls being integrated. Perhaps I'm thinking older.

I think it was an option. I know that there's an option on 100 series that have integrated ac/nav/audio and you have to buy the part for the ac controls and some other shit if you want to use most aftermarket headunits
