    im trying to figure out how to play music from my iphone and control it with the factory head unit. the dealer says it cant be done because the XM module conflicts with the ipod interface. i dont even want XM, but i want to control my ipod. whats my best option?

    No. I purchased direct from Dice for a Prius with JBL. Works beautifully. Don't know about the USA SPEC.

    Is the factory one a Dice unit?

    i didnt purchase the factory ipod interface, but the dealer ordered one and tried to install it and it didnt work. the thing that worries me with the usa spec module (PA-15 TOY) is that it will also conflict with the embedded XM. did they design it with a workaround?

    I'm not trying to be a salesman, but I did have an experience with the DICE people where they helped me over the phone. Perhaps you could get your questions answered with a simple phone call.

    Most everyone seem to use the USA Spec unit with good success. I used the PXAMG unit in my Accord and for the most part it worked well.

    I have the usa spec toyota adapter. It uses the disc changer inputs and according to the propaganda with the unit (manual) states it can be used with the XM. Check on the crutchfield website for more info. Just buy somewhere else cause its cheaper.

    Disclaimer: I do not have XM, just commenting on what the manual says.

    I have 2010 with the JBL/blurtooth built in along with the Ipod adapter. It works great but I cant control anything with my stereo controls except volume.
