    Noobie here. This is my first Tacoma and I'm a new member that just joined this forum. The Tacoma is a 2007 SR5 Prerunner that I just purchased Used at the beginning of the month. It has a six cd player installed and I would like to connect my Ipod to the stereo system to listen to my music while traveling. I've heard that there may be an AUX plug on the back of the unit. Does any one know if my unit has this AUX plug on the back without having to tear the whole thing apart to find out? I've also heard mention of JBL. What is JBL?

    Any info would be greatly appreciated. I'm trying to learn as much as I can.

    I am not aware of any aux plug on the back, but there is a connector that add on devices use to make an aux plug available (as well as an iPod and/or USB stick/drive)

    JBL = James B Lansing, James was a gentleman that also was involved with Altec Lansing. Altec's fame was the "Voice of the Theater" speaker, popular as the sound system of choice for movie theaters, and JBL speakers were the recording studio monitors in something like 90% of the western world recording studios. JBL is now part of an audio conglomerate and produces all sorts of electronic gear, notably in our case an upgraded speaker and amplifier system for Toyota products. If you had such a system it would be noted with the JBL logo on the headunit in your dash.

    Ok, now I'm confused. Checking the internet for ways to plug my Ipod into the stereo system says there should be a place to plugin a connector so that one might connect their Ipod in to listen to the music. If not then what do I need to make this happen?

    A 12 pin connector (unused unless you have Sat radio) is used to plug in the interface mentioned by whippersnapper02 above. In addition to Grom and USA Spec, Toyota sells a box. and so do other companies (Dice comes to mind, there are others too).
