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 ]

Q
Why does the description state "The AX-TOYUSB is not compatible with CarPlay or Android Auto". Is this just not merely an extension of the USB port on the radio ? What do I need to get Android auto to work on my Galaxy S5 extended from an NEX4200 to the Toyota factory jack then ?
[ Johnny  Jul 29, 2016 ]

This adapter was shipped with the install kit for my 2013 RAV4. It doesn't work because the port in my car is a combination USB with AUX port. The new head unit does not have AUX and can't understand the input from the built-in combination port. I replaced the built in combination port with an aftermarket USB only port that fits my dash and connects to the extension USB cables on the head unit, bypassing the car's wiring. Works fine now.
[ Andrea  Jan 10, 2019 ]
A
Works fine on my ILX-F309
[ Adam  Mar 27, 2018 ]
A
I don't know why it would say that. I have an NEX6000 which does not support Android Auto, so I don't know much about it. I thought that adapter was just a USB extension cable, so not sure why it would not work. I assume it depends on whether the head unit supports the cable and Android Auto, but just guessing.

Q
Will this work on a 2015 subaru BRZ? i tried a PAC USB-SB1 which was for 2013 and up BRZ but the connector was too small.
[ Beechnut87  Mar 25, 2016 ]
2 answers
A
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)

Does this part connect thru the OEM in-dash USB/AUX connector in a 2012 Tundra without JBL?
[ Jim  Dec 30, 2014 ]

This part worked in my 2015 Tacoma. I'm almost positive it fits all Toyotas.
[ Jacob  Jan 03, 2015 ]
A
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 ]
A
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 ]
A
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.

Q
Does this part connect thru the OEM in-dash USB/AUX connector?
[ Jim  Dec 30, 2014 ]

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 ]
A
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 ]
A
Yes. I plugged it directly in to existing factory plug. Works great!
[ RYAN D  Jan 02, 2015 ]
A
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 ]
A
Yes it connects to the factory USB input, but the Aux input won't be,
[ Bill  Jan 02, 2015 ]
A
Yes. It allows you to connect the factory in dash USB port to the aftermarket head unit. Works great!
[ DOUGLAS R  Jan 02, 2015 ]
A
The adapter allows you to use the factory usb port above the cup holders. It plus into the factory harness
[ CHRISTOPHER  Jan 01, 2015 ]
A
Don't buy it doesn't work I bought can't connect it with aftermarket car stereos
[ JOSE R  Jan 01, 2015 ]
A
Yes, just plug it in and it works with the factory usb jack.
[ JASON  Jan 01, 2015 ]
A
No. It did not work for my 2012 Toyota Sequoia.
