Hey guys,it's me again.
This time,I just purchased an unbranded 2DIN from a local seller,it was used a little bit and i got it cheap.



I got some connectors with it too.



My question is,am i able to install it using this harness on my RAV4 2009, or there's some other harness I need to buy? THANKS A BUNCH!

If you live in the US, walmart carries the harness for our vehicles(they have a all in one Toyota harness). Those connectors in your picture look like they would just connect to the back of your stereo so you would have to directly splice the wiring into your dash(not recommended at all).

Thanks a lot for you reply @Rav4nous , that's exactly what it tought it would be. I don't live in USA and in my country ordering online is still a big problem, so I think it's the best to take my car and HU to an electrician to solve my problem.

Hi Steka, where are you from?

A Toyota cable harness should n't be that hard to purchase...
It's quite cheap and loads of internet shop sell them online.

Any feedback on these chinese devices? Are they worth pursuing or it's a waste of money? i'm thinking about upgrading my stock radio + cd to one of these devices and adding rear parking camera.

Well i had some (a lot of) shipping problems with fitting mask along with harness,so i decided to sell it to a friend.I actually tested it a couple of times before and it was great for that money,bluetooth connection was really good,everything was working as it should,but my advice is to find used Pioneer 2DIN radio,they aren't that expensive as new and they're surely reliable and great.Be careful when choosing fitting mask,some of the cheap ones have some real gaps in between.

Well android OS is the main factor that tempts me in buying it. This give pretty much unlimited customization possibilities.

I'm thinking about this unit here:

Thanks. I think I've looked at this . But the fact that there weren't any orders on this or feedback made me think about it first. Plus the other one I've posted will be cheaper shipping and according to the seller i won't need to pay customs taxes, probably they have a warehouse in EU.
