#26 of 233 Radio reception quality in 2005 XLE very poor
Dec 13, 2006 (5:47 pm)
I've been unhappy with the radio reception in my 2005 XLE since I got it (about a year ago). Basically, stations that used to come in crystal-clear in my 05 Sequoia (which also had in-glass antenna) now don't come in well at all, both FM and AM. The dealer replaced the radio under warranty but it really didn't fix the problem. My husband's 2006 LE radio sounds better and has better reception with his wand antenna.
Has anyone had this problem? Is replacing the in-glass antenna a good option? Or is the radio itself to blame?
#27 of 233 iPOD Connector for '06 Sienna

Does anyone know what/where to purchase an iPod connector for the AUX adapter on the '06 Sienna?
#28 of 233 Cassette player not even an option?

Have I just missed an option for a cassette player in the Sienna? I know they're old school and all, but my kids and I have a ton of books on tape that we really enjoy on long trips. I know the Odyssey has it as an option, but I haven't seen it listed for the Sienna.

I'm sure you have your answer by now but Radio Shack has the 1/8" to 1/8" miniplug cable to connect the Ipod to the Aux adapter and it is in various lengths. Also if you have a video Ipod you can connect it to the Sienna entertainment center 3 prong adapter by the following cable-
GE JASAV97592 iPod(R) Video Cable for about $5. Tanker
#30 of 233 Ipod Volume Adjustment for Sienna Aux Adapter

To add to the info above on the 1/8" male to male cable costing about $6 when used to connect Ipod to van audio system. In order to get proper level of the sound thru all speakers you have to adjust the settings on the Ipod. Go to "Settings" and then click on "Volume Limit" and adjust it to "Max". You will now have continuous quality music thru the adapter. You don't need the FM transmitter or line amplifiers. You can also hook up the video Ipod thru the 3 video adapters in the rear left wheel well of the 2006 Sienns XLE Limited. Tanker

I have an 04 sienna XLE with the rear radio. Can I have a DVD player installed in place of the radio. Does anyone know how much it costs?

Just get a roof-mounted one.
Costco has an RCA 10" model for $650 installed on their web site, last time I looked.
Best Buy had one that I saw in person last weekend, it was $500 for a 10" screen, but installation was extra.
Both include 2 wireless headsets. IMO those would disturb the front passengers far less than a seperate rear audio system would.
#33 of 233 Another i-Pod Question
Mar 05, 2007 (7:39 am)
I know I can get i-Pod mini plugs to connect it to the Aux jack. But most places have 6 foot lengths. Radio Shack did have a 1 foot length. Anybody know if they make a cable between 1 and 6 feet long? Even the Apple Store has only 6 foot length.

I finally got mine, an 07 LE with package 3.
Guess what? My radio reception is poor as well.
Do they all have in-glass antennae now? Thing is, I can't find it!? It's supposed to be in the rear quarter window, but I don't see any lines there. I've seen them on Subarus, unless they look very different on Toyotas?
Do some models still use mast antennae? Mine has the mount for it, but no mast.
BTW, we had a Jenson 12.1" DVD player installed, and that thing ROCKS!
When we arrived at the beach, the kids asked if they could finish watching the movie. LOL
