Q
If I have an OEM USB port AND I want to install one can I use a USB splitter/combiner to connect the two to the same USB port on the back of the receiver head unit? The OEM port is in the glove box (good for an old iPod, but not convenient for connecting my phone for Apple CarPlay). The MMI is difficult to get to so I'd like to make sure the juice is worth the squeeze before making an attempt to install this adapter.

I'm not positive, but I don't think so. I never had any luck with USB splitters. I didn't put too much time into it, but I'm pretty sure it won't work. Good luck with whatever you decide to do. ??
[ colby  Jan 10, 2020 ]
A
The ability to use a USB hub with an aftermarket radio varies depending on the radio's design. However, USB hubs often interfere with the ability to run Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well. Your goal is better met with a receiver that has two USB ports. I recommend contacting an advisor on 1-800-324-9695 to discuss all your goals and get a personal recommendation on what gear will work

Q
2012 Tacoma This does not seem to fit my 2012 Tacoma TRD Sport without JBL and Nav. The instructs are not clear, I assumed it would just plug in with the other connection provided, but it does not. Am I supposed to plug it into the module behind the glove box? If so, he cable will be too short. I am trying to maintain the factor look, but will add another USB connection in the dash if needed.
[ Michael  Jan 20, 2019 ]

You need to plug it in the factory usb connector near the glove box. Google is your friend
[ thomas  Jan 20, 2019 ]
A
I'm not sure on the comparability with a Tacoma but it worked on my FJ cruiser between my Sony head unit and factory USB outlet. I would imagine it would work as long as the Tacoma plug has that type connector.
[ Christian  Jan 20, 2019 ]
Q
Does this part connect thru the OEM in-dash USB/AUX connector?
[ Jim  Dec 30, 2014 ]
5 answers
A
This part only works if you have USB only on your in-dash, it will not work with the USB/AUX. They do make a connector for USB/AUX, but I do not have the part number
[ Guest  Jan 06, 2020 ]
A
Maybe I'm totally confused, but I could not see any possible configuration for the cable to work in my Tundra and returned it to Crutchfield.
[ Ronnie  Jan 02, 2015 ]
A
not sure I called crutchfield for assistance on this cable but they had no idea where it plugged into
[ Desi  Jan 02, 2015 ]
A
It connects the oem ish connector to the aftermarket stereo. It was a bit difficult to locate the plug though. It is way over under the passenger side kick panel.
[ Christopher  Jan 02, 2015 ]
A
I have one on my 13 Tundra with an Alpine ics-x7hd HU and the brown end needs to be plugged into what I believe is the multi-media interface (located under the left side of the glove box). Once you remove the radio and HVAC controls you will be able to see it from that opening as well. The plug connector you need to plug into is the same color as this cable and there is only 1. The USB will plug into the USB port on the rear of your HU. It is a Pain to get to.
