About the DICE MediaBridge for Toyota
Looking for a lot more from your factory stereo, but don't want to buy a whole new receiver? Or maybe it's not so easy to change the stereo in your newer car. Just install DICE Electronics' MediaBridge, and suddenly your boring factory stereo gives you iPod control, an auxiliary input, and a connection for a satellite radio tuner.
Browse your playlists with your factory radio
Just mount the compact hideaway box in a hidden location in your vehicle, and connect the included 40" harness to your factory stereo. You can plug your iPod or iPhone® into the USB input on the MediaBridge, then 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. You can also plug in a USB thumb drive loaded with MP3, WMA, and AAC files.
Satellite radio and more
Add an optional SIRIUS tuner, and you can tap into the wealth of entertainment satellite radio provides. Last of all, a mini-jack input lets your friends plug in their MP3 players or dock-and-play satellite radios.
