Aftermarket Stereo

So, when looking for a new vehicle, I really liked the Sync Nav system that Ford had in their new line up of trucks. I ended up falling in love with the 4Runner but didn't want to spend the extra $7-8,000 for a Limited with Nav. Wondering if I purchased an aftermarket in dash system, would the steering wheel controls/i-pod connect/etc still work? has anyone done any aftermarket stereo research or had one installed? Just curious? Thanks!

I'm curious as well. Can the factory stereo even be replaced? It looks very integrated into the dash and does not seem like a standard din size.

Better Bass in my TE! Please! The stereo is good. I like it, I do! But, the stereo is the only thing that has me slightly missing my old Tribeca. I would love to upgrade the speakers first if it would truly give me an upgrade.

Info would be great! Is the non-Nav system in my TE already operating at maximum wattage?

Found this Vehicle Fit Guide for Infinity Speakers. Apparently there are some infinity's that will fit the 5T4R

http://www.mobiletoys.com/partners/i...y/Default.aspx

AND

this one shows the dimensions for your T4R:

This is what onlinecarstereo showed for my 2010 T4R SR5:

Car Deck Specifications

Front Speaker 6X9 4
Front Tweeter 2.6 0

According to my installer you can replace the stereo bezel, the new one comes with vents and you can fit a double din dvd there. You can add the wheel control and bluetooth adapters. This is the way I am going to go. I hate the stereo.

so i talked to a dealership parts/service dept about adding toyo nav to an SR5 after sale. good and bad news.

good news - it'll only cost $150 for installation including labor
bad news - the nav unit itself costs $4600 according to parts dept

i think i'll have to go w/ an aftermarket nav system like a pioneer z110BT which goes for $1500 including installation and all labor/parts

I talked with Car Toys about this. They can upgrade the stereo to a touchscreen using the dash kit above - I think Kenwood just came out with a touchscreen w/o Nav that runs around $550 (has XM/Sirius built in). They mentioned that doing this would render the blue tooth buttons on the steering wheel inoperable, but the touchscreen would have its own bluetooth functionality. Also, this would disable the USB port in the glove box, but the new unit would have its own cable for iPod connectivity. I think that stereo would be a much faster interface to the iPod than the stock stereo.

Or, you can upgrade your speakers only. However, there seemed to be some confusion as to the effect this would have on the "Party Mode" button. It could disable that. They threw out options for adding 2 amps instead of one to keep that function, but it didn't sound like they really knew what would happen.

Bottom line is you can upgrade, but you may affect other parts of the car. I'd be interested to see if anyone has actually tried any aftermarket installations.

Would it disable the USB completely? Or would we still be able to charge a phone or ipod or video camera with it?

Also, On after market systems... do you have to physicaly touch the touch screen to activate a call or make a call using their Bluetooth? Are there aftermarket units that do a 100% voice command Bluetooth?

And would the aftermarket system be able to use the stock XM antena?

Too many questions! This is my only pain with a NEW model year car... The unknowns for upgrades.


Hopefully there will be a dream Alpine unit that will be able to continue to use the Party Mode, Bluetooth buttons, USB and XM already in the truck. I know, I know, Dream ON right?

Sorry for all the questions, but I have to put them out there.
