stereo blank options - gen 6

Question

i ditched the double din unit out of my car a couple months ago, and fitted a single, in its place.

big hole leftover in the dash, what options do i have ?

ive seen some pictures, with what appears to be a solid, no storage, blanking plate, with toyota on, and most common. im guessing thats a factory fitted option ? .. how those ones fit to the stereo bracket ?

anything else available. something with storage, would be ideal, but mainly i just wanna plug the big hole up in the dashboard

Put a thread up in the wanted section someone might have something, 

As you say there is the blanking plate with toyota logo on and there's also cubby hole ones for storage

One for sale here mate

If they are the same as on the Gen'4/5, it will be with a screw at each end.

the surrounding gap you mean ?
its a smidge on the tight side, when clicking the trim over the top, but it has an even gap, pretty much all the way around it.

Hey mate I have a Sony stereo with the cubby hole underneath but would like your double din stereo :D


you sure ? i pulled it out, to fit what you have now, lol

although i bought a ' toyota ' blank, instead of the cubby hole thing, cubby would be better for storage.

if your current stereo has usb, it sounds like you might have the optimum setup already.

Haha yep as I prefer a more updated unit to mine and the look of a double din unit. emoji16.png Is yours Bluetooth or usb?

i dont think its bluetooth.
its got cd, radio, usb, and front 3.5mm aux jack
the menu's are a bit complicated to work, which can give you a headache, but i found once youve spent ages setting everything up, its alright after that.
it has, what ive branded as ' chameleon mode ', where you can adjust the colour and brightness of the backlights, to suit whatever colour lights your dash has. theres a daytime colour setup, and a nighttime colour setup, which flicks between the 2 colours youve set, when you switch the headlights on and off.
sound quality out of it seems pretty good.
i dont know if the cd works. ive never put one in it
