    Good Morning Fella's-

    So I am headed out today look at replacing my Stock Nav Unit and looking for something with Apple Play and updated features. I was told that I need to look for a unit that is Maestro compatible as it will keep the stock units settings as well as steering wheel controls. I hear some units will display TPMS status as well which would be a great.

    So on that note, I would love to hear from those of you who have replaced the stock head unit in a Tundra and get your thoughts on the Pro's and Con's. Pics would be great as well!!

    Thanks-

    TR

    I replaced mine with a pioneer avic 8201nex. The maestro will show individual tire pressure. It will also allow you to keep the oem backup camera, and factory amp (if applicable). You will need the Toyota harness from I datalink which allows the use of the oem radio plugs. You can buy two other idatalink harnesses to keep the oem USB, GPS, and satellite radio antennas. You will also need an adapter to interface the oem radio antenna. This radio had CarPlay and I did like it, but it was very buggy on the pioneer side. Traffic was not fully integrated, you had to have your phone connected through usb. I ultimately ended up returning the pioneer because of the bugs. I bought all the maestro stuff from a shop that wouldn’t allow returns :/. Now I have 300$ worth of installation components sitting here collecting dust.

    That looks great. Do you miss the stock Nav unit at all?

    Yeah I need to. I’m going to attempt to keep the factory HU and rip all of the jbl crap out. I’m probably going with a JL / Focal Expert setup.

    @treihing pm me if you are interested. I have everything you need other than the head unit itself. Even the dash kit.
