    So I bought a 2013 radio thinking it was a pnp into my 2012 but its not. Three of the connectors don't match up. Also on the back of the 2013 there is no attenna hookup. Anyone have any input or help? Thanks

    That's a bunch of crap. I was gonna try and get a 2013 stereo for my 2012 also. Why would they leave everything else the same but change the plugs? Makes no sense.

    yup some people where saying the same :facepalm:

    yup...that r15 plug and that other "cam r 17"

    only problem is the pins with wiring...1 pin with wire costs me $11 from toyota which is stupid, thats why im waiting for a friend of mine to let me come over and yank the stop plugs from his 07 radio because his is totaled...granted the plugs i am getting arent the same as the new radio but all i want the the actual pins and wires

    Do you have a wiring diagram and can you just take the wires out of the old connectors and install them on the new connectors?
