Keep your Toyota's USB port working

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, then check here for a list of parts. You can also call an Advisor for more information.

Great product to retain stock controls

Gained USB Connectivity The Right Way

Written By Fernando, Aliso Viejo, California on Tuesday, September 09, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

Cons: None.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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

Cons: None

Works in the Subaru BRZ or Scion FRS

Written By ANNIHILATOR, GA on Friday, December 06, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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

Cons: None

Worked as advertised....

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 ]
For details on fit or installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on if this will fit and what you will need for an installation in your vehicle. [ Krissy  Jan 01, 2015 ]  Staff
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 ]
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 ]
