I have an IPOD connected to my 2009 TCH. I bought a connector that inserts into the connector in that liftup door under then radio. In the back on the bottom is a place to insert the IPOD connector. The connection I bought also connect to the 12 volt cigarette lighter type connector in there too. So my IPOD plays and charges when connected. You have to put the station selector on AUX to play then IPOD. It's pretty simple and fairly obvious how to connect it
#171 of 171 Any problems with the 2011 TCH reception on AM band.

We bought a 2011 Camry Hybrid in 2010. From day one I complained about the AM reception around the L.A. area. Big stations' signals would fade out or get "noisy" and thereby un-listenable driving round town. Toyota headquarters said "no problems reported blah blah blah".
Frequently I would drive up and down I-5. A BIG Fresno station could be heard for about 100 miles and then would fade.
My wife bought a 2011 Prius. The first time we drove the Prius on I-5 we could listen to that same station for several hours - over a distance of 250 miles or more. WOW!
Still, Toyota led me to believe that I was the oooooonly one complaining about the radio in my $29,000. car which, otherwise, we looooove.
In July the on-off knob mechanism broke. My extended warranty covered the replacement of a new radio (probably a re-manufactured item). I was hoping that I would get better reception . . . no such luck. The replacement radio's performance is just as terrible as the original
Am I really thaaaaaat special that I got the Camry with a bad radio? Help ! ! !
