    I have a 2010 Prius with Navi and jbl system but I been having some issues with the oem system so I decided to upgrade my unit so I found this unit on seicane.com but when I messaged them telling them I have a 2010 Prius with jbl will that work they said yes and that I would still retain my camera and steering wheel controls so I bought it however that wasn’t the story and now I don’t know what to do I have contacted they and they told me just to take it to a audio shop but when I did they said there’s nothing they can do if you guys can help me I would be gladly appreciate it here are some pics of the unit

    This is a repost of a post I recently left you. Did you not see it? Or just ignore it? It's probably your only way out of this situation:

    "I need the harness for my jbl system"

    I am quite sure there is no 'harness', per se, that will allow you to install an aftermarket HU in a JBL Prius. What there is are adapters that will allow you to retain features such as backup camera, steering wheel controls, etc. You must get the adapters that align with your HU (Android vs Apple...). Crutchfield.com sells such adapters and has good customer service. Their website has packages that will fit a given Prius model and Android/Apple application. This is set up assuming you'll buy a given HU from them, but since you already have a HU, you'll need to contact customer service directly for advice. They will get back to you by phone, and most reps are very knowledgeable. Good luck, it ain't a simple matter...(been there, done that).

    Personally I've had a terrible experience with my Seicane radio. I was so excited to install it, but the advertised features didn't even work! I couldn't map steering wheel controls, and my AM didn't work, also FM had static which the stock radio didn't do. I don't even have a JBL package in my Prius yet the radio wouldn't work right. Oh and I can't forget the fact that I had to modify (cut) the radio for the bracket to work on it. I was about to modify the bracket but thankfully I didn't, otherwise I would have to replace it when reinstalling my stock radio. You can see in the picture how it doesn't work.

    There IS no harness that will mate ANY aftermarket HU with a JBL unit. None. I suggest you sell the Seicane for whatever you can get and then go to Crutchfield and start over. Select one of their HUs and get the adapters that go with it.

    Yeah that may seem like the best option at this point

    Left the stock radio in. I didn’t return it because if I remember correctly they wanted me to pay for the return shipping. I guess that’s what I get for cheaping out. There is one on Amazon I’ve been eyeing, but haven’t purchased yet.

    Yeah the only thing I’m thinking about adding is a small sub by infinity I’m going to put it in the cubby in the trunk in that little storage spot and that’s about it

    How was the fit of your radio? Did you need to modify it to work with the bracket? And also was the harness completely different? Just trying to figure out if they updated the design or fixed the radios.

    FWIW
    1. Years ago the Ottonavi unit, still listed in a sticky thread, had JBL support built in to the HU. You just needed to use a different harness.
    2. At one time Seicane was selling units with fake Android 9. It was really android 8. A few people who complained got 75% refund. Seller rather refund almost all the money rather then have to pay return shipping and give a full refund.
    3. Almost all the China HU sell a canbus cable combo which lets you use JBL amp, still plug n play. canbus.jpg
    I uploaded a picture of one. You need to make sure the cable included is the correct one for your car and the canbus adapter is the correct one for your HU

    Hey just curious what harness was used that worked for your HU, and do you have full SWC and backup camera working? I think I have the same Seicane Android HU and whatever harness it came with does not work with anything other than the factory speakers and the RCA outs for aftermarket add ons. I am also in CA, so I would love to know what stereo guy you went to that was able to get it to work. Thanks!

    FYI my Prius stock system was a non-JBL with NAV
