Keep your Toyota's USB port

Metra's AX-TOYUSB-2 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 5-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.

Works great on 2011 4Runner

Written By Kasey, Colorado on Thursday, February 19, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The adapter works great, once you find the plug to connect it to. It does not connect to the USB connector in the glove box, but rather to a plug that is connected to a box behind the glove box/knee air bag. It would be helpful if it was a bit longer, as I had to remove the wire wrap on the stock loom in order to get have enough length to reach the aftermarket stereo.

Pros: Does what it is intended to do.

Cons: Could be longer.

Fits, works, but Clarion HU's do not like it.

Written By Power, Michigan on Monday, January 19, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed this on a 2010 Tundra. This will work on any Tundra gen2 or newer. You do have to find where it plugs in. Another review said it would not connect, they were trying to plug it directly into the factory port and it actually plugs into the metal control box behind the lower pass dash/glove box/knee air bag area.

With a Clarion NX604 the cable will not allow transfer of data directly. You have to connect this adapter to the provided cable from Clarion. The HU will then play files but it is slower and more glitchy with it. I will likely return this cable due to these glitches and lagginess with the Clarion HU. Seems to work fine with other HU's. And does function with the provided cable from Clarion, just not perfectly. Also I installed a Crux SW adapter and that itself has a factory usb/aux audio output via rca, just will lose control through any HU.

Pros: Works when you actually know where to connect it.

Cons: Have to figure out where to connect it, and in the case of the Clarion nx604 it is laggy. Also charging speed was reduced, likely due to many cables and connections between the Idevice and the actual HU.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Worthless on a 2011 Toyota 4Runner. It has to attach to the head unit and the computer interface behind the glove box. I could not gain access to the area behind the glove box. Called Crutchfield tech support and they could not find out how to gain access either. I ended up not using this adapter and just ran the USB cable provided with the head unit to the interior of the cab.

Pros: None

Cons: Could not install

Didn't fit

This part does not fit a 2011 toyota tundra double cab with a usb and aux in the same spot. im sure it's a great item and works well but it just does not fit the mentioned setup.

Cons: does not fit my car like Crutchfield said it does. i couldn't install it

Works great

Pros: Able to hook up the original usb in my truck

Cons: Instructions not real good

Works amazing in my 2013 Tundra

Written By GeoffN, Phoenix, AZ on Thursday, May 29, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This was easy enough to install and works exactly as it should. I have tested this adapter with numerous USB devices and I have also used a Pioneer HU as well as a Kenwood HU and they both play nicely with this adapter. My only regret was not buying this sooner! If you have a Toyota with an aftermarket radio, BUY THIS

Pros: Easy install. Works as advertised. Cleaner dash. Retain factory functionality.

Cons: None.

Crutchfield lists this as "does not fit" for the tundra, however it works perfectly was able to retain my oem USB plug with the kenwood h/u

2013 Tundra

Written By Gary, Texas on Monday, March 17, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Worked perfectly to connect my existing factory usb port to the Kenwood stereo I bought. If you remove the access panel underneath the passenger side dash, you can reach the metal box that has the factory plug. Pull out the brown factory plug and connect to this adapter. From there you just fish it up to the radio and plug it in.

Pros: Works Perfect

Cons: None

Nifty nifty

Written By Martin, Atlanta on Sunday, February 02, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Once I found out where to plug this, it worked perfectly! As long as you have a rear USB on your radio then you can keep the factory usb outlet on the dash. FYI: the brown part of this plugs into another brown connector behind the glove box, so you have to take that out. Nobody seemed to know that but its really very simple

Pros: works, easy to use,

Cons: took a while to figure out where to plug it in. I think its a new product so Crutchfield didn't seem to know much about it (they should now though)

Great product to retain factory USB

Written By Mike, Phoenix, AZ on Tuesday, January 07, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This adapter makes using the factory USB port built with an aftermarket radio a breeze. Works as expected once you find the correct vehicle plug. Mine was buried deep under the dashboard.

Pros: Works as expected. Makes factory USB port work with aftermarket radios.

Cons: None.
