    I'd really like to plug my iPod into my stereo, but I have the stock unit model #A56823. It does not have an outlet for MP3 players on the front. Now, before I go and tear into this just to see if it has pre-outs (RCA plugs) in the back of the unit, by chance, do any of you guys know by experience, if I have them on this unit? It would save me a bunch of time & trouble. And yes, I have tried the cassette connector thingy & it sounds horrible.....
    Thanks a lot!:D

    Your stock stereo does not have any RCA inputs on it, but there is a piece you can get that will plug in to your stereo and control your Ipod. SoundGate TOYPD2 is your answer. My 2009 came with one and it works good. I have since replaced the stereo, and plan to use the TOYPD2 in my wife's 4Runner. Here is a link:

    Good luck!

    I'm happy with the SpecUSA adapters in my Scion and Taco.

    I'm still testing out a few of the features-but so far I'm impressed with everything.

    Looks like there's plenty of options - I'm def going to ask before I buy my next mod! I have pictures of my iPod / flashlight in my console in my uploaded pics... I like things NEAT, LOL
