AUX2CAR Install Pictures

As Promised... Pictures to go with the rduke tutorial...
http://solaraguy.org/viewtopic.php?t=12818

I spent <45 minutes on this. Very easy with the instructions.
"open the center console large storage compartment door, and pull up on the center console." might make more sense with this picture. I thought the whole center section was coming up but it's just the top. rduke is right. Front edge inside the compartment is an easy place to start popping clips.
Image

This is what comes off when you pull the center compartment out. Really easy... just pops right off.
Image

Here's the back with the harnesses. I just left it off to the passenger side. It's not in the way so no need to disconnect all the stuff.
Image

Inside the gaping hole you've made in your car, your hand (I've got big hands...[ladies? impressed?]) fits nicely in front of the cables. I ran my Toyota plug behind them to get a better approach angle on the target hole. Takes some fuggling but I got it in on the third try [again... ladies?]. The latch of the harness goes down.
Image


No offense rduke, but I ain't drillin' no holes in my ride! Plus I'm not sure where I'm putting my CarPC yet so this is a temp location. I just laid the cable under everything then over the lip of the compartment so it appears as if from nowhere. I left enough cable to reach the seat if I want to plug in my laptop. There are clips where I put the red dots so the cable doesn't change the fit at all if it's in the center.

Image

So far the Aux2Car sounds good. Depending on the device you plug in, the volume may be weak compared to the radio. My MP3 player has a line out that sounds better than the headphone out. The only other difference in my install was that I used RCA-male 1/8" for the final cable so that plugs into whatever. I haven't used it on the road so assume it's still fine if I don't follow up with a bitch post.

Rock on! MJC

I got mine at logjamelectronics.com

I think the AuxPods were replaced by iPod2Car (they look the same, different color).

I got my AUX2CAR at http://www.SJGreatDeals.com . That was the cheapest I came up with after a cursory google search. You might find better.

Hay guys great post... I just purchased the ipod2car manufactured by peripheral electronics, but I believe it should be the same setup. In rdukes post it says that you need the adapter, which I have. The AB-TOY which i also have, but whats is the cable purchased from toyota do? I'm just wondering if id have to purchase this cable too.

Thanks

Check out the tut. listed in the first post ^^^^ for a party #.
It goes iPod (for you) to Aux2Car to AB-TOY to Toyota plug to stereo. The AB-TOY ends with a wide harness that still needs to get small and square to fit in the headunit. (Guess I should have shot a pick of the parts)

Now if anyone runs across the Toyota pinout and command set for a CD Changer, turn me on to it. I'm going to need to hack that last cable someday to get a PC to work with the head.

Pull out the cupholder with pressure on the insides, pulling up. For the top plate start at the front and work back. So lemme guess, you busted the flip thingy in the cup holder, right?
