About the DICE iPod® Interface

A dilemma: you have all your music on your iPod, but your factory radio isn't designed for iPod use. Just install DICE Electronics' iPod interface — you'll be able to listen to all your favorite tunes through your car's speakers, plus control song and playlist selections right from your radio. And as a bonus, you'll add a handy 1/8" auxiliary input for hooking up additional sources like a Dock & Play satellite radio.

A dilemma: you have all your music on your iPod, but your factory radio isn't designed for iPod use. Just install DICE Electronics' iPod interface — you'll be able to listen to all your favorite tunes through your car's speakers, plus control song and playlist selections right from your radio. And as a bonus, you'll add a handy 1/8" auxiliary input for hooking up additional sources like a Dock & Play satellite radio.

Just mount the compact hideaway box in a hidden location in your vehicle, and connect the included 40" harness to your factory radio's CD changer or XM satellite radio connection. Plug your iPod into the interface, and you can browse your music library by album, artist, or playlist right from the radio or with your steering wheel audio controls. The direct connection to your stereo gives you superior sound, and your iPod will stay charged while you drive.

Please enter your vehicle information or call an Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to find out if this adapter is compatible with your vehicle. This adapter won't work with 2004 Toyota/Lexus factory radios with navigation, or with the Toyota/Lexus 2009 portable navigation option. You'll lose your factory CD changer or XM satellite radio once you've connected this interface.

Compatibility Note: Be sure to check "Details" for specific iPod model compatibility with this iPod adapter.

Note: Apple iPod/iPhone software updates may change functionality results. If you download a newer software version, you may need to reset the device and your iPod/iPhone to regain functionality. If this doesn't work, you may need to revert to the older software version or wait until an newer software update is available.

Control Modes: The DICE I-Toyota-R/5V iPod Car Integration Kit allows you to control the connected iPod/iPhone from the factory radio, factory steering wheel controls, or from the iPod/iPhone itself. The DICE Electronics iPod Car Integration Kit (I-Toyota-R/5V) offers two selectable operating modes:

  • Display Mode: Full controls are available from the connected iPod/iPhone and simple browsing (Play/Pause, Fast-Forward/Rewind, Track Skip/Next) is available from the Toyota/Lexus factory radio. Text display is also available.
  • Locked Mode: Full controls and browsing are available from the Toyota/Lexus factory radio. Controls on the iPod/iPhone are locked. Text display will also be available.

Note: You can quickly switch between the Display mode and Locked mode by using the Hold-button on your iPod or iPhone.

iPod Control: The DISC or SAT button on the Toyota factory radio accesses the connected I-Toyota-R/5V interface and your connected iPod/iPhone. Press the Disc/Preset 5 button to select between iPod or Aux mode. The DICE Toyota iPod interface lets your browse your iPod/iPhones music content by Song, Playlist, Artist, or Album by pressing the appropriate Disc/Preset button (1-4) on your factory Toyota radio. You can then use the Track button and/or the Tune dial on the factory radio to select the next or previous song.

iPod Text: iPod/iPhone text is supported on all text-capable factory Toyota radios. The DICE Toyota iPod interface supports artist, album, and playlist text.

Note: Text can only be displayed on 2003+ Toyota/Lexus vehicles, where the factory radio is equipped with the TEXT button or where the radio is MP3-CD text capable. Older radio models will not display text.

iPod Hierarchy: By default, the interface creates a Playlist having a name that is the same at the name on the iPod. This Playlist is the very first on the list of Playlists shown while browsing in Playlist mode. This Playlist contains all the songs on the iPod. Once a Playlist is active, an Artist may be selected within the Playlist using the Artist mode. Albums by the select Artist and within the selected Playlist may be select in Album mode. "All Artists and "All Album" designate all available content in those categories.

iPod Charging: The interface automatically charges the battery of the iPod/iPhone when connected and the key is in the ACC/ON position.

Auxiliary Input: The DICE Electronics iPod Car Integration Kit (I-Toyota-R/5V) is equipped with a 1/8" (3.5mm) auxiliary port to connect an external audio source such as an MP3 player. The auxiliary input has gain, bass, mid, and treble settings in order to optimize sound.

Dip Switches: The DICE Electronics iPod Car Integration Kit (I-Toyota-R/5V) features 4 dip switches which configure the interface module settings for vehicle compatibility, display type, and iPod operation.

Connections: The DICE Electronics iPod Car Integration Kit (I-Toyota-R/5V) comes supplied with a 40" vehicle harness which plugs into the iPod interface module and then between the Toyota factory radio harness and the Toyota/Lexus factory radio plug. The I-Toyota-R/5V iPod Car Integration Kit also features a 6.5' iPod dock connector cable which plugs into the interface module and then into the dock connector on your compatible iPod/iPhone.

Note: You will either have to replace your factory CD-changer or XM satellite radio tuner with this interface.
