Rep: 10 Black Magix is on a distinguished road
Default Searching for a new head unit

Ok infamous question. I want a new head unit but I have some requirements.

1) Bluetooth (for my iphone)
2) Aux Port
3) Fits into the current slot without needing spacers (double din I believe)
5) Retains use of my steering wheel controls.
4) Budget of about 250 dollars.
I don't care about manufacturer as long as it's decent.

I'm personally tired of using my tape deck as an aux port and would like something a little better.

So what I'm using now is the stock JBL audio system in my 2003 Toyota Sequoia.

If there's a website where I can enter these requirements, by all means, point me there.

you can enter your vehicle and see what fits. Double din units are expensive though, you may have to raise your budget a tad to get something of good quality.

Good luck bro. Integrating with the JBL systems is a *****. We typically had to run all new wires to bypass the stock amplifier, which if i remember correctly is in the back of the car under the back cargo area. And typically you have to buy a separate control module to integrate the steering wheel controls. And unless they have made some big changes, they rarely work right... And to do/get all this under $250 isnt gonna happen... Just stick with the stock unit.
