#177 of 210 Adding aux outputs to 2007 Toyota Tacoma
Feb 03, 2007 (1:05 pm)
For anyone interested, I successfully added the USA SPEC Aux Interface to my 2007 Toyota Tacoma (DF-Toy). I had it done at Circuit City. Even though the USA SPEC box says it only supports models 1998-2004, it worked on my 2007. I have a 6-disc in-dash changer that came with the truck. The USA SPEC plugs into a mini output jack on the back of the unit. There was some uncertainty as to whether the radio would have the mini outlet or not, but there it was. I connected an aftermarket Sirius radio and iPOD connector. Both work very well and I haven't had any problems (3 months). The iPOD plays through the headphone jack (unfortunately it doesn't charge the iPOD unit at the same time). The sound is fine (although the gain is a little low (requiring the iPOD volume to be up pretty high). Sirius sounds great (clean sound and good volume gain). Selecting the aux unit is easy; just hit the "DISC" button twice to move between the 6-disc in-dash changer and the USA SPEC. The USA SPEC shows up as "disc 6". The 2 aux inputs (iPOD and Sirius for mine) can be found on tracks 1 and 2. The 6-disc in-dash changer is unaffected by the USA SPEC; all 6 discs are available and fully functional.

I just installed an AVIC-Z1 and am looking for a good location for the backup camera. Thinking either by the third light so I can see the bed of the truck or just under the rear bumper....any suggestions?

I'm so confused. Why did you need a dash kit? Aren't all Tacomas isomounts? I managed a 2 bay installation department for Circuit and we never used a dash kit. I also own a Taco and the isomount looks better than any kit, not that I have ever seen one.
#183 of 210 Adding a USA SPEC Aux Interface (DF-Toy). to my 2007 Toyota Tacoma
Apr 16, 2007 (12:07 am)
I need a little help here. I have the USA SPEC DF-TOY. It is suppose to add 2 audio inputs to my stock 6-disc changer. I am hoping to use this to input my creative mp3 and sirius satellite radio. Someone posted here (message #177) that it plugs into a mini plug in the back of the deck. The cables it came with are a 12-pin to din and some other loom? It is also suppose to leave me with a working 6-disc chgr but the box reads the opposite .The directions say nothing really... anybody done this on a 06-07 Tacoma? Does the interface really take the place of the 6-disc chgr ? What's the deal with the mini plug?
thx for any help ...A picture of the back of a 07 6 disc chger/radio would be golden
#184 of 210 2006 Tacoma Alarm and Stereo Installation Ideas
May 12, 2007 (10:58 am)
I have a few questions for Taco owners who have done their own installation of alarms.
1. Where did you install your control module or where are the best places for the unit. Under the driver seat, behind glovebox, under dash near steering column. I's asking being in the process of doing such an install.
2. Starter interupt: Has anyone found a place that sells a interconnect cable. Since 2006 Tacos seem to have (2) ignition and starter circuts (wires) do you need to use both of them to stop the vehicle from starting or can you just iinclude one wire in the alarm cut off circut to work?
3. Where have you guys been mounting your status LED, any cool spots that have decent access to install and are easy to see from outside the vehicle?
4. Where did you install the paging antenna?
#185 of 210 05 tacoma JBL stereo upgrade
Jun 05, 2007 (3:58 pm)
I have an 05 tacoma with a type 1 single CD stereo. I recently got a great deal on an 06 tacoma Type 3 JBL 6 disc system. When I tried to install the new radio, the clips on the wiring harness don't match up. Is there some type of adapter available to make this work? Am I better off selling the JBL and getting an aftermarket unit?
Thanks in advance for any response.

There is no doubt in my mind that you can get an adapter. The dealer doesnt want tro be bothered...try circuit city,go into the install shop and talk to the guys there.
