    I was able to bypass the lock out on the GPS system on my 2004 and 2010 (with a kit). Is there either a work around or a kit that would enable my wife to program the GPS or use the phone for the 2016 while I am driving?

    It is a switch. Beat-Sonic installed one in my car. I had it placed by the seat warmer switch on the bulkhead in front of the center console.

    This is the part and it is installed in between the factory radio harness. Its very simple to install and there are youtube videos showing how to get the radio out.

    There is another kit that allows wireless display of your phones display. Its about 230 on ebay but apparently unless you have the JBL system the display is a bit fuzzy. I also am having video delay so the audio is lagging. Not sure it was worth the cost. But it could be my Galaxy S5 is to old, so when my S8 arrives ill let you know.

    I am hoping that the unit from Prestigious Society will work on my 2017. I had it on my 2015 Camry Hybrid. Love the activation (radio vol on steering wheel down, down to activate, then up, up to cancel).
