2016 Toyota Avalon Limited with Technology pkg

Post by jjcamilli » Sat Aug 10, 2019 6:35 pm

I am in the process compiling the parts list to replace the factory head unit and have a few questions. I would like to reuse:
* Factory GPS antenna
* Factory Radio antenna
* Factory XM antenna

Here is the parts list so far:
* Kenwood Excelon DMX905S
* Maestro RR2
* TO2 ?? online checker seem to indicate this will not work
* USB2 ?? online checker seem to indicate this will not work
* UTO2 ?? online checker seem to indicate this will not work
* Metra 95-8244HG

Would like to get input on what are the correct parts to buy.

Also does anyone know if reverse cross traffic alert will work with a new head unit?

Thanks Joe

The TO2 wire harness is the correct one for your vehicle.
Unfortunately to retain the OEM sat and GPS antenna cable we do not have a solution, you may need to look online to see if anyone makes an adapter.
To retain the FM antenna you will need the adapter from Metra, 40-LX11.

Will the Rear Cross-Traffic Alert still work with and aftermarket install?

That system is not integrated with the radio circuit; it should work independently of the radio.
