    I have a 2010 Tacoma with the JBL system. I want to get a Kenwood DNX5120 to replace the head unit. I know I need a Metra wiring harness so the amp/sub will still work and the PAC SWI Jack to get the steering wheel radio controls to work. Is there an adapter or anyway to get my stock Bluetooth and Bluetooth steering wheel controls to work? I searched everywhere but couldn't find this specific question answered. Thanks!

    Crap, replacing the JBL head unit sure is a pita and expensive. Thanks

    It has the option for a bluetooth adapter $100, plus the $50 for the special JBL harness, $50 for the PAC SWI Jack so steering wheel controls will work, plus the $100 for the satellite radio adapter. Beginning to think I might just suffer with the crap head unit. I really just want something that works well with an iPod. Thanks.

    Since you have a 2010 with JBL, I think the iSimple Gateway ISIM73 still works with your headunit. That will get you iPod connectivity and control. I think 2011+ (what I'm plagued with) is when it doesn't work.

    You can pick one up on the eBay for like $35. :D
