    Hello all,
    I finished up my head unit upgrade last weekend. I just finished up the documentation (attached).

    Again, a huge thanks to all the PC members that made the upgrade and document possible!

    Hope someone can get use out of the document. Helpful comments and suggestions are always welcomed.

    [edit] 10/21/2011 - added version 2 document by user Aleman (please thank him if you use his document).

    [edit] 03/22/2011 - added addendum (upgrading the dash speakers).

    [edit] 02/23/2010 - added another photo displaying finished SWI to car harness wiring.

    Quick question. Will this guide work with prius 3, non nav? I think the only difference is the jbl amp and speakers.

    Just a guess, but I would say yes. If you proceed, let me know how it goes and I will add the information to the document.

    I think someone needs to make a request to the moderators to make that happen, not sure though.

    Spiderman - I got the tyto-01 instead of the pac-tato because of the jbl system in the prius 3. Do you agree that I will need to put ht 560 ohm resistor on this setup?

    I couldn't tell you for sure as I didn't use that one. Just looking at the product briefly, it appears to have a 12 to 20 pin connector which I would assume would connect directly to the car harness with nothing more to do.
    There are others on here that have used that product I believe. Hopefully they will chime in.

    Great work! This should come handy for 2010 or later model owners.

    Interesting... the technology seems to be being developed by a company right here in Anchorage Alaska.

    I'm upgrading the JBL system in my Prius III this weekend. I'll try to do half as good a job in documenting Spiderman did on his Prius II.

    That will be great. If you want, I can attach that document to this thread (first post).
    Good luck,
