2016 Toyota RAV4
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Just connect the blue wire even if you don't have a powered antenna. The blue wire is used to power diversity amps in some vehicles, including mine. It made the difference of barely picking up 3 channels to picking up everything and then more.

Pros: Easy to install, plug and play...

Cons: Absolutely nothing

Great!

easy to set up and wire.

Pros: easy to set up and wire

Cons: when I first installed it there was no way to secure it in the back of my Pioneer AppRadio 4- so it slid out a bit and I had static on my AM/FM- but I had to go back in for something else so I pushed it back in and now have no static.

I din't think that I needed this as every other install that I have done on my Toyotas, 2008, 2010 Tacoma and 2010 Corolla has had the standard antenna. Once again Crutchfield knows best.

Helped retain the radio functionality when installing a Pioneer AVH-X4700BS into my 2015 Camry (Non-JBL). Simple plug & play. Had to tap in blue remote wire into the "turn on" wire coming from my HU. Easy as pie.

Antenna adapter for a Toyota amplified car antenna

Written by: Cristino R. from Bayamón, PR on August 14, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Adapter to connect your Toyota amplified antenna to a more common RCA plug equipped aftermarket radio. I connected the electric wire to my Parrot Asteroid Smart's Power Antenna wire. Works like a charm! If your aftermarket radio does not provide a switched output, you could use any +12v that is on on accessory.

Pros: Plug and play.

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This adapter harness, along with the Metra 40-LX21 Antenna Adapter harness, worked interfacing my JVC HD radio receiver to my stock radio. When using both adapter harnesses, don't forget to connect the two blue wires together. I used a small wire nut for that.

Pros:

Cons:

1 question already asked

There is a plug from the antenna that looks like the pointy metal end coming off the white plug. Plug that into the white plug and the one on the adapter goes into the radio. The blue wire goes to the blue wire in the wiring harness for remote power to operate a power antenna. [ JASON  Jul 15, 2015 ]
