    Wireless car play vs wired? Thought's, l'm going to have to plug in my phone for charging anyway, so leaning towards wired and the head units are cheaper, but interested in real world experiences.

    Any any brands to avoid, leaning towards either Sony or Pioneer.

    My 0.02....

    Function: wired > wireless
    Convenience : wireless > wired

    Either way is fine. Save some cash for other mods

    I have been using Kenwood for years.

    Need some assistance. FYI, I am a novice with anything electric...

    I have a 2019 OEM Gt86 head unit installed in my 03. Love it, have the streaming and phone connectivity working.

    I purchased a master Tailgaters reverse camera tail gate handle but my head unit does not have a yellow RCA input. Is there an adapter for my specific head unit I could purchase or some other work around so I can connect my current head unit and the reverse cam?

    Thanks in advance for any assistance

    I have a 2018 86 radio myself. You'll need to wire a 5v relay to switch 12v on for the reverse camera.

    The 86 radio only has a 5v output for the camera. The aftermarket camera needs 12v to turn on. And if the radio doesn't see a camera signal when it turns on/boots up, it will not enable the reverse screen.


    Here's the radio diagram:

    This is the adapter I made. It uses a small 5v PCB relay. A larger one would work too, Napa carries a 5v relay that is standard size (30a).

    If its like AA, the updates all take place on your phone. The car's display is just that, a display for the smartphone app interface.

    I really like the floating display, but doesn't it just scream "break my window"? That's my biggest issue with these things. I think I'd have to stick with a double din screen and keep my tint illegal for the small piece of mind.

    I’m confused by the fitment problem I’ve run into on my 03.

    The stock radio is slightly curved, and the dash cover panel is also curved to that same profile.

    Replacement radios are all flat faced. None of them fit through the radio opening of the cover. So the radio sits well back, with an ugly crescent gap.

    Now I can sorta solve this by cutting the stock panel, which assumes I can do it neatly and perfectly square. However, I don’t see any mention of this by others here in this thread. And, their radios seem to fit in neatly.

    What am I not getting here?

    Most of them stick a bit through the opening, past the curve. Yours perhaps doesn't?

    You can get an 00-02 dash bezel. It has the perfect size opening with no install trim kit required. Otherwise you have to order a trim kit for your bezel to fill the gaps.

    Mine did not fit through the opening. It was close, but not quite.

    So the earlier 00-02 bezel is different? Presumably flat? I shall pursue this!

    As for a trim kit, none seems to be made for it any longer. Wiring and bracket kits, yes. But I can’t find a trim kit anywhere.

    Here's how mine turned out. Not sure if I ever posted a picture. Don't mind the dust...

    Unsure of this curved bezel thing I'm reading about btw.

    If it's the actual factory curved dash, min went on after the radio was in place..

    Not sure which year they switched, but the earlier models like mine had a smaller opening that fits aftermarket radios better. No trim required.
