    Car Radio Model 57010.

    I will be replacing it with an Apple Carplay compatible radio.

    Since this is a regular car audio unit without any silly JBL "upgrade" amp (sounds much better than my 9 speaker JBL unit in Prius gen2) I understand a new radio will be more or less plug and play, am I correct? Only steering wheel interface adapter will be needed to retain buttons on the steering wheel.

    I just installed a new head. I went with Maestro RR and the harness required to use it Maestro TO2. I went with Kenwood DMX7706S. I wanted to be able to use gauges from the head unit.All steering wheel controls and OEM back up camera retained. I can finally hear some serious action coming from the rear speakers now. I did replace all speakers. All the cables from head unit are plug n play except the back up camera connector had to be spliced. Really happy with the stereo.

    Just curious, where you able to get your head unit replaced ?
    Do you mind sharing some details or pictures on what head unit you have updated it to?

    Could you point me in the right direction regarding the backup camera?

    I will be installing the new radio soon.
    I'm waiting for the dash kit and SWC box to arrive from USA.

    Almost everything arrived.

    I just need to find the information how to get the factory camera working.
