    Good price, just not a fan of Kenwood UI

      I have this. Kenwood UI is not an issue. Android Auto/Car play works excellently on the high res screen.
      Continual live google maps navigation is excellent for peak hour rat running to avoid traffic.

        How much do they charge for installing an unit like this?

        •  

          Depends on what it's going in, what car? Considered DIY?

            @PinzVidz: Its an '08 Camry. Never considered DIY might look it up first on YouTube.

              @Nickelback: Assuming it's an Altise/Ateva/Sportivo without factory reverse camera, you'll only need a fascia and ISOs. Fascia here, ISO to factory connector here, ISO to DDX9018DABS here. Run the park brake wire to earth (i.e. black), solder and insulate. Insulate the reverse, cam +/-, Power Cont. and steering wheel remote input wires on the ISO to Kenwood loom.

              The Kenwood comes with OEM SWC (Steering Wheel Control) capability, so you won't need a SWC adapter. You'll need to solder/insulate in the 3 wires (headphone type plug with wires, has Steering Remote written on a tag wrapping it) to the Toyota 20 pin plug loom, see here for diagram.

              It comes with 2x USB leads, locate them where ever is convenient to access. Use the supplied leads only. Don't use any factory type USB adapters, they interfere with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto operation.

              Plenty of videos on YT on how to remove factory head unit. Have fun!

          Autobarn quoted me $130 + parts ($60-80) for fascia and wiring kits.

    That's gotta be under cost. Anyways, as mentioned before, don't forget there's new models due in the next few weeks.

      New models may have wireless android auto/apple car play. Not a big deal imo, as you'll probably want your phone charging anyways.
      Certainly not worth the $300+ premium for the new unit when it comes out.

        Yeah I was super keen on hearing wireless Android auto, then remembered sometimes my phone is flatter than when I plugged it in for Android Auto in the Tucson… Wouldn't wanna see its power drain on wireless!
