I would be hesitant at spending $100 for something that states that it's for 2019 and 2020 since all 2019's came with the AUX port next to the USB media port.
This is from my 2019 brochure:
This is from my 2019 brochure:
It should/would act like the USB1 and 2. On mine, without a USB hub plugged into the USB media port, only USB1 is available. I bought a USB hub cable and with this plugged in, I can access USB1 and USB2. I would hope that if you plug this "adapter" cable into your radio, it would trigger the radio to show AUX as a selection. By the way, on my radio, when you rearrange the source selections, the USB2 is shown there even though I didn't have the hub plugged in. Curious if yours shows AUX in this rearrange mode. If not, the jury is still out on this devices functionality.Yeah I'm definitely hesitant but if they email back saying its compatible I'll give it a try and just get refund if it doesn't work out. The other thing I don't understand is why they would sell it for the 2019 since its factory installed (maybe not in some regions?).
I'm interested in how you would select the aux jack on the audio menu as well...
See red aboveI too wonder if:
.... it'll work with a 2021 hybrid xle premium that has the non-Nav JBL system --- Time will tell once someone orders it and prvides feedback
If their Aux In comes up as a separate Audio selection (Aux). Ideally I'd like to see two separate selections: ---- USB --- AUX IN -- On my 2019 which has teh AUX input, AUX has it's own source selection.
I use two ports on a USB Hub.
That Hub connects to the JBL via the single Data USB Port
One port on the Hub gets an MP3 USB stick, the other has a short USB C cable that I can connect to my Samung Galaxy for Android Auto.
When I connect the phone, the MP3 USB is not recognized until the phone is unplugged. --- I believe this is normal. With CarPlay, most hubs will state that it will not work with CarPlay or it describes exactly what you're experiencing. Since my 2019 doesn't have AA, I can't test. My curiosity leads me to have some belief that Toyota used the AUX input after 2019 to accommodate the inclusion of AA.
I'm wondering if this is also the case, if something is plugged into the AUX IN ...... does the AUX IN defer to Anroid Auto? --- As I have stated, AUX is a separate input selection. If I'm using CarPlay and I select AUX from the source selection, whatever is plugged in to the AUX port with be accessed.
I'm going to give it a try. Like I said $100 is a little steep but if it accomplished the task it'll be worth it to me. Also according to the website they are based out of Brooklyn. I wouldn't be surprised if the part is manufactured in China but with their confirmation email I feel safe taking the gamble and will just do a charge-back if it happens to fail and they happen to be disagreeable with a return.Our harness will allow you to add an audio auxiliary input to the RAV 4,
once installed AUX will appear on the screen as source. Our unit has two
RCA wires to convert it to a jack you will need a part like the one in
the link below. Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank You

Out of curiosity, when you "reorder" your sources, is there an AUX listed?Looks like @JFox562 was right. Here was their email response.

I'll update when I have it in hand.
There is no aux listed currently on my sources list when I re-order them. Hoping it just magically appears like the email implies and from the sounds of it how the USB2 works. As for access I'll probably just mount the amazon thing they linked someplace more convenient and skip the stock look. I like the idea of it being the same as the 2019 but in practical use I don't really like the positioning of the port.Out of curiosity, when you "reorder" your sources, is there an AUX listed?
The reason I ask is that's how I found out that there was a USB 2 source which then only shows once a hub in plugged in.
Hopefully it shows and this is what the manufacturer of the device is utilizing since there isn't a physical AUX port on your RAV4. If it's there, then I would be much more hopeful that the add-on device will work.
If it does, then you'll need to research to get the 2019 USB/Aux port as a replacement since I would imagine that the opening hasn't changed.

There is a lot of space but I doubt you'll be able to align it properly unless you take some more panels off (Vents, climate control, etc). I plan doing a better install later, just wanted to make sure it worked today and play around with it before it got too hot... (90-100 degrees today).Thanks for trying this out and posting, and congrats on the successful install. I may just have to give it a try on my 2021 w/JBL. Is there sufficient gap to route straight down to the where the USB data port is? I'm looking at this adapter, the end looks small enough to mount into the tray near the USB port:

Just an FYI, my 2019 Limited has the combo USB/Aux port. I checked about 20 OEM parts web sites and all but one said this will not fit my RAV4. I will be very interest if this is the correct part when you get it in since I've been looking to get an extra. I figure this is a wear and tear item and will eventually wear out. Thanks for the info. and yes, I agree, this should be a $50 max item.Looks like the part number for the combined USB/AUX is 86190-12040. Just went ahead and ordered one from eBay for $87 shipped from the Middle East, which appeared to be the best price around. When it arrives I will post detailed instructions for wiring it into the factory harness, should be far less expensive than that $100 cable!!!
Hey JFox562, I would appreciate if you could do me a favour. Can you get to the connector going into the rear of the jack and take a photo of the 5-wire connector, and see if it has a part number stamped into the connector housing. I believe it is a 7-pin with the two outer pins unpopulated, and to me it looks like a 90980-11794 but would like to confirm.Just an FYI, my 2019 Limited ahs the combo USB/Aux port.
