    Hello,
    I have a 2010 Prius base radio...I'd like to have a radio with Bluetooth. Do the 2012 or newer factory units have Bluetooth? Will any interchange with 2010, without mods to the surround? I do not want a NAV unit...only the ability to listen to music from my phone. I can handle the different harness rewire, if required, and I know the antenna needs mods.
    Thanks for your help!
    Jim

    My 2010 Prius IV has Bluetooth and JBL, but no Navigation, so the parts should be available. Audio from external devices is not over Bluetooth, but hard-wired through an Aux jack in the center console. I don’t think the Bluetooth of that time was capable of carrying any reasonable quality of music, if any.
