Metra's AX-TOYUSB cable allows you to keep the factory USB port in your Toyota when you install a new car stereo. One end of the cable connects to the 4-pin proprietary plug just behind the USB port on your Toyota's console, while the other end plugs into the USB port on the back of your new car stereo. You must install a car stereo with a rear USB port. Warranty: 60 days.
Note: Most vehicles will require additional installation parts please identify your vehicle if you haven’t done so. You can also call an Advisor for more information.
Does not fit
Works as intended. No issues with connectivity and simple to install!
Pros: I like it makes things easy
Don't know what to say other than it worked as advertised, guess that's worth 5 stars
Pros: Worked great
Works perfect for WRX/STi owners wanting to use the factory USB in the armrest.
Pros: 100% flawless plug and play.
Use this every day, works as advertised.
Pros: No more dead USB plug in the dash like in previous aftermarket installs!
Plugs into the aftermarket radio and into the OEM wiring to retain your USB in your armrest.
Pros: OEM fitment
Cons: Not Metra's fault but with this plugged into the radio and into my USB iPOD the radio (pioneer avh-5700bhs) will not play Bluetooth audio even if the ipod is off.
Used this to hook up my AVH-4100NEX to the factory USB port in my 2015 WRX, works flawlessly.
Pros: Works as described.
I used this in my 2015 wrx to retain the factory USB port when I added my pioneer avh-4600bt head unit. Worked perfectly and couldn't be happier. Crutchfield also got me the adapter in two days as promised!
Pros: if you want to keep a factory USB port this is the only option
Works great in my 2015 Subaru Forester and my Pioneer AVH-X2700BS even though Crutchfield said it does not.
Pros: Allows me to retain the factory USB port
Used to replace the stock entune on a 2015 Tacoma with the Pioneer that has Android Auto. WARNING: Be sure you pay attention to which of the 2 USB ports on the Pioneer you need to plug this into based on if you have android or apple. I wrongly plugged it in the 1st USB port but had to remove stereo and plug into 2nd USB port. That is not the fault of this product though.
Works perfectly if you have selected your vehicle appropriately. Just get it. I am not sure what happened with the Tundra guy, I have a non-JBL, non-nav 2012 Camry and it is extremely likely that the dash wiring is very similar.
Pros: Plug in both ends = works perfectly!
Cons: Doesn't not work.
This may work with other models but not on my truck which is a 2012 Toyota Tundra SR5 that came with a non-JBL, non-Nav radio. I installed a Pioneer AVIC-7000 NEX using the main interface which was easy but I gave up using this piece after spending a long time figuring out which connector it should match with (on the truck side, the radio side is easy) even after reading many forum threads. This WILL NOT make the factory USB (and the Aux) on the dash work.
Pros: None for my purpose
Cons: Unuseable for me.
Super easy to install. Plug one end into the factory USB harness and the other into the back of your head unit. Retained factory USB plug on my 2015 Subaru WRX.
Pros: Inexpensive and easy to use.
Great product to retain stock controls
I purchased a Pioneer head unit to replace the stock stereo. This cable allowed me to use the center console USB input which is awesome! No need to redesign/reconfigure USB inputs.
Pros: Perfect link between my new head unit and the center console USB input.
You need this adapter if you want to use the Prius v's console USB port with your new aftermarket stereo!
Pros: Plug and play
Works- I have a 13 tacoma and my in dash USB port works the same as it did with the stock head unit. It plugs from the USB port on the back of the stereo to toyotas harness - easy to find and connect.
Pros: Works- easy to install
Works live a glove! I says it won't work for the FRS or BRZ, but it worked in mine.
Fits like a glove
Pros: Made for the Toyota
I went ahead and bought it anyways because it looked like it matched the USB port on the back of the Subaru BRZ Stereo. Come to find out it actually does work with no problem. The website will say it does not match the BRZ or FRS but it actually does.
Pros: It works
Item worked perfect on my 2013 Toyota Prius C. Can now use oem usb connection with aftermarket stereo... no cutting or splicing required.
Pros: No wire cutting
USB Adapter Harness: The AX-TOYUSB lets you retain the factory USB port in select 2012-up Toyota vehicles when replacing the factory radio with an aftermarket head unit that features a rear USB input.
Note: Additional kit and harness will be necessary to replace your Toyota factory radio with an aftermarket receiver.
CarPlay & Android Auto Incompatibility: The AX-TOYUSB is not compatible with CarPlay or Android Auto.

need factory usb [ Manuel Dec 25, 2015 ]
Plug and play for aftermarket radios and want to nee the factory usb location in the vehicle. [ Mario Dec 21, 2015 ]
I picked this because it retains the factory USB [ ADAM Dec 19, 2015 ]
I installed an aftermarket Pioneer AVH-4100NEX in my 2015 Tacoma. I didn't want an extra usb cable for use with the CarPlay connection to my iPhone. I also didn't like the idea of having a non-usable port (it's a pain to get to for removal/replacement)This should be an excellent option. [ Milton Dec 15, 2015 ]
I picked this because I want to utilize the factory USB port in the dash of my truck. [ Jeff Dec 13, 2015 ]
No, it does not work in a BRZ, FR-S, or a GT-86. the oem jack on the back of the usb/aux plug is a male jack and this cable is a male connector. Further more, the oem usb/aux jack requires a plug with both the usb and the aux in one and cannot be modified to fit this particular adaptor. you will either need to find a proper version of the adaptor or completely change out the oem usb/aux plugs all together. (or start splicing wires) [ Tekmstr Jun 16, 2016 ]

This part worked in my 2015 Tacoma. I'm almost positive it fits all Toyotas. [ Jacob Jan 03, 2015 ]
What this does is allows you to retain your stock usb port on a aftermarket radio one end goes to stock harness and the usb end in the aftermarkets usb port [ john Jan 03, 2015 ]
This worked on my 2012 Rav4 just fine, and allowed me to use the built in USB port on the center console with an aftermarket radio [ Brandon Jan 02, 2015 ]
Not sure. I used it on my 2014 Tacoma and it did connect fine to the oem usb/aux port. My Tacoma did not have a JBL sound system. [ Jennifer Jan 02, 2015 ]

Yes--I have a 2013 Toyota Tacoma. This cable connects through the OEM in-dash USB/AUX. I keep a USB-Thunderbolt cable plugged in for my iPhone. Charges and plays music well. I got an Alpine bluetooth deck unit as well. The wire harness for the Toyota steering wheel controls works as advertised. I have no issues. The only thing I've noticed is that the audio quality is better (and louder) when I connect through the USB/AUX cable, rather than bluetooth. Hope this helps. [ Justin Jan 02, 2015 ]
Yes, this is the wiring harness adapter to allow use of the dashboard USB AUX. I used it when installing the aftermarket stereo in my 2013 Tacoma. [ edward Jan 02, 2015 ]
Yes. I plugged it directly in to existing factory plug. Works great! [ RYAN D Jan 02, 2015 ]
It connects to the wiring behind the radio and goes to the female USB connector in the dash. This way you can plug this into the back of a radio that has a back USB port and then utilize the in-dash (OEM) female USB outlet with your media devices. Hope this helps. [ JASON Jan 02, 2015 ]
Yes it connects to the factory USB input, but the Aux input won't be, [ Bill Jan 02, 2015 ]
Yes. It allows you to connect the factory in dash USB port to the aftermarket head unit. Works great! [ DOUGLAS R Jan 02, 2015 ]
The adapter allows you to use the factory usb port above the cup holders. It plus into the factory harness [ CHRISTOPHER Jan 01, 2015 ]
Don't buy it doesn't work I bought can't connect it with aftermarket car stereos [ JOSE R Jan 01, 2015 ]
Yes, just plug it in and it works with the factory usb jack. [ JASON Jan 01, 2015 ]
No. It did not work for my 2012 Toyota Sequoia. [ rocky Jan 01, 2015 ]
