    i have been looking for something for my 08 TD non JBL stereo. i dont really want to get an aftermarket headunit. i am wondering what you guys think and what you guys have for sale. i am leaning towards the PA15-TOY by USA specs but at $115 maybe a new headunit is the way to go. discuss

    Having an Ipod connected totally rocks!

    I actually just did the fabled Scion/Pioneer factory radio swap
    last week in my 2007 taco dbl cab. I swapped my 6 disk factory
    radio for a Scion T1808 radio with integrated Ipod and MP3 disk
    support. The swap was all plug and play and the mouting brackets
    were even the same. Just needed a Scoche aftermarket radio
    install kit ($26 on ebay shipped) and had to trim it a bit (alot) -
    but it looks awesome and sounds better than awesome. Also -
    all steering wheel controls (if you gots em) work with the deck.

    Price: I found a T1808 in great cond. with the ipod cable for $100.

    I think the factory radio adapters for Ipod are like $80-$100.

    I will gladly post / email you pictures if intersted

    Later,
    Ken :taco:

    I just picked up and installed a PA20-TOY from USA Spec. It's awesome, even though I don't have a nav system.

    All I need now is an iPhone cradle and I'm set.

    It really depends on whether you want an aftermarket system or not. I didn't. and this works perfect for me.

    Wish I had seen this sooner. I have a 1200mi road trip next Tuesday, and it'd be sweet to have that Grom unit setup!

    Best thing if you don't want a new head unit. I just stick my old IPOD in the glove box and leave it alone.

    Does the Grom adapter in that setup hang out from your dash?? Or how/where do you hook it up and leave it??

    I own a T1808 that I had installed in my '05 4Runner which my wife is now driving. I installed a Clarion NX409 in it for her yesterday, and planned on moving the T1808 over to my '05 Tacoma. Now that I have the Scion Radio in hand, and the Scosche kit, it doesn't look like there's any good way to fit it. Can you give me a little detail about how you modified the Scosche kit? Thanks!

    I know its hard to visualize using the scoche dash trim kit with the
    SCion radio in a Tacoma....After installing the Scion radio in my dash -
    I looked at the dash trim and said...WTF $#@$%@#

    Anywho....You need to carefully and slowly grind the trim down - starting
    at the radio opening and grind back twords the front panel. Grind a bit, test fit and mark w/ pencil, and grind some more (...lather, rinse, repeat...). Eventually - you will get it so that the grinded surface will meet with the left and right sides of the radio faceplate (you will loose
    about 1/8 " of the radio face plate behind the trim on both sides. If its like
    mine - I has a small gap at the bottom that really didnt need filing and a
    1/2"+ gap at the top - which can be filled with a piece of black high density weather stripping from home cheapo. Cosmetically - mine turned out pretty good and I am happy with it. I am running a Scoin / Pioneer
    TS1808 deck with stock speakers in my 4 door 07 prerunner and it sounds
    awesome! I am very impressed with the change. I ran the ipod cable back to my center console - where my ipod mounts w/ velcro inside. Steering
    wheen radio controls work for all functions including ipod control

    I might have put the cart before the horse here..I am assuming that you had no issues removing the old, stock radio, and installing the Scion one.
    The mounting brackets from the stock radio bolt right up and the wiring
    harnesses simply plug into the Scion deck w/o any mods...This part doesn't get any easier...the face plate trimming can be trying - just go slow and you will be happy with the end result...

    Ken :D
