    You could probably find a place to mount it. Pictures of your dash would help in case you have anything else already mounted and for those of us who don't know what the 2011 dash looks like (did they change somewhat in '09?)

    Sorry for no pictures of the dash I have not installed them yet my plan is two up front always hot switched for phone and pad and two in back always hot and switched on only when needed. I have never seen a 09 dash but below the ac controls and baove the area JPmorrisvp showed in his pic is a nice long flat area to place switches and outlets etc. Since toyota in thier infinite wisdom did not give us one that was always hot the doubler idea really wouldn't work :{
