#11 of 14 Aftermarket anvigation upgrade
Jan 04, 2010 (9:32 am)
I have a 09 Toyota Corolla S. I liked that it came standard with a 6 cd changer, xm sat. radio (even if I dion't really need it), bluetooth handsfree and jbl stereo (though just a 6-speaker system). I would like to upgrade to an in-dash navigation, keep the bluetooth and/or the xm satellite in case I do decide to continue subscription for those long interstate driving. Since I recon that the original Toyota system doesn't come with bluetooth, I was hoping for another product that would fit my dash. Also I loved that satellite radio can feed music info (singer/song title/album) which I think is available on standard radios from GM and luxury brands. I would like a unit that would provide me that same feature. Is there a system out there that is simply a plug-and-play so that I may consider installing it myself too?

Well I can't help you with your substitutions but I can tell you I just love that JBL upgraded system. I also have it on my "09" XLE. The hands free blue tooth is a great convenience and safety item. Now that I have the XM satellite radio I don't know how I ever did without it. It's well worth the small yearly subscription I pay. The system just pumps out 400 watts of pure power that sounds exceptional. Why not just keep what you have as it is and just add an aftermarket portable GPS? That's a $1100.00 system you want to alter.

Thanks. I do like the JBL sound quality. In fact better than the last luxury car I drove which had a 10 speaker system. I know that an in-dash navi is actually more expensive to maintain and update. I do have a portable GPS and maps.google.nav on my smart phone which knows more places. I'm just kinda clutter-free guy.
