#123 of 171 AUX Input/Navigation Questions
Feb 21, 2007 (9:31 am)
I have 2 questions:
1 - I've tried to hook up an MP3 player (Ipod) to the AUX input in my 2007 TCH. I thought that file & folder information was supposed to show up on the screen (I have Nav system). Only info on screen was "AUX is in play mode". I tried again with a Zen player, and same message appeared. Am I doing something wrong?
2 - Is there any (safe)way to override the feature that blocks the navigation and audio controls that are blocked while the car is driving? It is a pain to not be able to at least have a passenger use the system while I am driving.

In reply to your first question: the AUX input connects to the analog sound output (headphone jack)on your MP3 player. There is no way the info you want is going to be transferred to the car. This is why I much prefer putting the MP3's on CD's which will display that info.
#125 of 171 Voice Navigation Question
Mar 02, 2007 (11:36 pm)
Does anybody know how to speak a "DASH" into the system as part of an address? Whenever I try to enter an address via voice commands (ex: "ONE" "ZERO" "TWO" "DASH" "THREE" "SIX" for 102-36) the system reads it as 102736 or 102NW36 or something similar.
I've tried to replace the "DASH" with "HYPHEN", "SLASH", "SPACE", and have even tried to speak the address without any punctuation (ex: "ONE" "ZERO" "TWO" "THREE" "SIX") but then the system tells me that no such house number exists.
Any imput is welcome!
#126 of 171 Adding XM or Sirius to the Hybrid: Dealer or Aftermarket?

What do most Camry Hybrid owners do? I see that the Camry Hybrid is XM or Sirius Capable but is it better to go with Toyota or Best Buy/equivalent?

As a Sirius subscriber for over two years, this was a major issue for me. Basically, it will cost you over $800 to have Toyota replace your XM and most units are on back order. I transferred my Stiletto to my TCH for a grand total of $65. The work was done by an auto specialty store which I trust.
Also, the new radios are not as powerful as the older models so some shops may want to install a booster for the signal. Great, but you have to turn off Sirius when you want to listen to regular radio. My guys circumvented this by adding a connection to my rear window defroster... blew me away. Just wish Toyota would not list XM/Sirius on the sticker as it is very misleading.

Where in the the car did you have your unit installed?

It is installed via a suction cup right above the dash on the lower left side of my window. As I drive over 100 miles a day I also have my Garmin GPS and my radar detector on my windshield. A bit of a pain when I have to take them all off, but they work perfectly.
I have the Stiletto 100... there are some really small units that these auto shops can hide really easily. I happen to like the features of the Stiletto.
I do not know if there is a way to upload pictures... if there is I would show you the set up.

#131 of 171 Integrated Sirius, HELP!
Mar 27, 2007 (6:24 am)
I bought my new TCH last week, and my Toyota dealer was supposed to install the integrated Sirius. I got a call today from the dealer saying the 2007 TCH without the Nav, does not support the integrated Sirius, only XM, even though Toyota boasts XM/Sirius Compatibility with the 2007 TCH. Has anyone actually got Sirius to work yet with the TCH, not using the Aux jack or an FM transmitter, but controlling from the in-dash stereo? I am a faithful Sirius subscriber and I am not interested in XM. And I also do not want to install a separate Sirius receiver and mar the look of my interior. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
