Not sure where you got your information, but you've been misinformed. The iPod connector I'm referring to is a $375 option and located in the glove box. It's a standard iPod connector that has nothing to do with the AUX input that's on the bottom of the dash and connected with a standard 3.5mm connector in the center console. Not sure why anyone would want to pay $375 for an accessory that's already standard with the base vehicle.

My information is based on the Venza in my garage, from the Toyota brochure, and from the Toyota web site. There is a standard aux-in jack located in the center console. There is no factory iPod connector option.
Your regional Toyota distributor may have a $375 iPod accessory that adds an iPod connector to the glove compartment. However, it is not a factory-installed option. It's installed by the distributor and/or the dealer after the Venza has left the Kentucky factory.
It may show up on the sticker in the list of options (I know floor mats, for example, are sometimes listed, and those are dealer/distributor installed), but it's not a factory option.

Because an iPod connector is not standard with the base vehicle. And that's exactly what I stated: the iPod connector is an accessory that's installed after the Venza has left the factory. That's why it costs an additional $375.

You're correct, I misstated that the iPod connector is standard. However, if you build a Venza on the Toyota website one of the options is the "Ipod Connector-RI20 $375". It may not come from the factory that way and may be port installed, but it's definitely on the Toyota web site.

I went looking for special equipment for the bluetooth connection and I discovered I didn't need any..follow the directions that they give you (make sure you punch the code into your cell phone before she finishes) and it's connected. It's great, I haven't quite figured out how to move the entire phonebook over to the car, but, I've been entering them one at a time.

Glad it works for you as well -
What my original post back in April was referring to was bluetooth MUSIC streaming. We have the non-nav JBL system and the bluetooth PHONE works as I had hoped. As I understand it though, I needed the NAV system to be able to stream music into the stereo. I have been checking aftermarket, behind the dash units that you can then plug your i-phone into and allow you to run the I-Pod portion of the i-phone via the steering wheel controls with information on the radio face. Still debating it though...
What stereo system do you have in your Venza??
#29 of 31 2011 Avalon Ipod Integration
Jul 28, 2010 (5:11 am)
I just purchased a 2011 Avalon Limited which has a USB port that is described to enable use of an Ipod with control through the radio. When I connect my generation 5.5 Ipod to the USB port the radio does not recognize the existance of the Ipod. In fact Ipod does not appear as one of the mode options on the radio. The Ipod will of course play through the generic Aux Port.
I also could not get my phone to pair when I tried to pair as "Phone Only" , but did get the phone to pair by using the "Bluetooth Audio " setup...I don't know if this would have any effect on my problem with the Ipod.
Does anyone know how to integrate an Ipod to the 2011 Avalon.

Hi. Forgive that I write to you, but on it there is a reason.
The help for USB realization in my Toyota Venza 2009 is necessary to me.
The matter is that I want to replace JBL 6CD with radio model of 2010. And to establish in a glove box of AUX/USB. Now at me there it cost only AUX jack.
Radio and USB/AUX jack (2010) I already got.
What wire to me is necessary to buy what to connect everything?
#31 of 31 USB Power cuts out
Aug 08, 2013 (12:40 pm)
Our 2013 Toyota Venza has a USB port. We have gotten almost everything working, although it would be nice if my Android phone could use USB to play music like the iPod. We were on a long trip and the USB port power would go out every 30-40 minutes. The dealer says that it is designed to do this and Toyota thinks that 30-40 minute is enough time to charge a phone. The cycle starts over if you turn the key off and on again and they say if you unplug the USB for several minutes it will recycle also.
I wonder is these people ever use a cellphone. Very poor choice.....
