    Hi All!

    I’m about to remove my stock radio in my gen2 9 speaker JBL in my Gen2 Touring Prius. Any one have tips/tricks/advice for doing a perfect install without loosing any functionality, such as retaining full steering wheel control, including HVAC controls, on-hook, off-hook control?

    im trying to upgrade my Gen 2 with Apple Car Play.

    thanks!

    v/r,

    howard

    I finally installed the AVH2550nex pioneer along with the metra Axxess JBL amp control and the ASWC-1 steering wheel control. I had Best Buy do the install and they did a great job, thanks to the expert tech installer.

    now, I want to add a Rockville RWCS10CA10” Sub/Amp combo and thinking where I want to place the Sub Level Control. I also want to add a combined USB and AUX Jack somewhere near the 12v under dash Plug-in. The Pioneer sounds so much better than the OEM Head Unit. I’m thinking of a quick disconnect for the Remote/Ground/+12v lines so I can move the sub in case I need to haul things in my hatchback.

    Pictures will be coming. I am having the bass level control mounted in the box below the head unit and the usb/aux dongle into the center console.
