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.

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

Your install guide only list: INSTALL GUIDE Toyota Avalon With JBL 2015-2018. I also have Nav and XM would this affect the install or use of the RR and HRN-RR-TO2 harness?

There shouldn't be an issue at all. The OEM sat isn't retained and you may have an extra connector in the vehicle that is not connected to anything in the TO2 harness, and it wouldn't be required anyway for proper radio operation.

I have a Kenwood DMX905S where do the White and Gray RCA's marked "LF RCA Input" and "RL RCA Input" plug into the back of the head unit?

you want to put them into the front rca outputs of the radio.
