2004 Toyota Prius Base (no navigation or JBL system)
It took me about 10 mins to install, I only took off the glove box, plastic piece with the air vent on the right side and the bottom plastic piece where the charger is at. I didn’t want the aux or mic so I just squeezed my hand in there and plugged it into the back. It connects immediately which came to a surprise to me because it is aftermarket. It is also sounds very good, I was nervous about that because other people had problems with it not being loud enough. It is definitely worth the money and better than spending hundreds on a new stereo.
Minus the time it takes you to fish the two top bolts on the radio, which will almost inevitably fall inside the console, it’s a 20 minutes install and gives you full functionality. No better way to bring your car into the future!!!
I purchased the Pure Bluetooth kit after watching the installation video. While installing it was quite easy, I realized that the stereo on my ’04 Camry wasn’t switching into the expected mode, even though my phone connected to the Bluetooth module as expected. I contacted GTA Car Kits and I have been blown away by the high quality of their customer service. I returned the original kit and GTA shipped me a replacement, which turned out to have a different style of connector; when I emailed GTA they immediately sent me an adapter to fit my stereo port. After installing this, everything worked perfectly.
Seriously, good customer service like this is hard to come by. I’m thrilled to be able to connect my phone to my car stereo without a clunky and barely functional FM transmitter. If you’re looking for a solution, look no further.
The unit works wonderfully, HOWEVER!!!! It is very important not to follow exactly the instructions from the VIDEO first, which instructs you to disassemble the unit and THEN follow the steps for configuring the cars OEM video and Aux and GTA Carplay setup. The instructions packaged with the unit clearly indicates that the steps should be reversed, and the system setup instructions prior to disassembly (VERY IMPORTANT). As difficult as it is to push the wires back far enough with room for the head unit and AC controller, I had to dissemble the entire unit and start all over. Trust me, this was a ROYAL Pain in every part of my body and mind!!! GTA, while the video instructions are very helpful as far as showing how and where everything should go, it would be most helpful to make sure that the ORDER to follow them were accurate and precise. Other than that, the unit works wonderfully!
This unit rocks! I installed in about 45 mins by following the video step by step. Wireless and wired CarPlay work perfectly and I am super excited to have it built in. This is a must have upgrade.
Easy to install
Although difficult to push wires back in to lock needs a lot of maneuvering
Please take a picture in engineering mode of your original settings Very Important
Installed on a 2005 Avalon I inherited a couple of years ago. Got fed up with the audio quality from cassette adapters.
It really was as easy as the guy in the video makes it look. I had very minimal tools, and almost no experience with stuff like this, but I had my car back to together and running within like an hour. It’s a world of difference actually getting some bass in my music.
Shipping was next day as claimed, and product arrived and functioned exactly as advertised. It’s a bit pricy but for a permanent mod that will definitely help with a resell, I can’t talk l really fault it. If you own one of these cars this is a no-brainer purchase. The only thing I’ll ding it on is the somewhat poor English on the manual.
I’m always nervous when it comes to aftermarket parts for foreign cars. However I really wanted to add CarPlay to my 2015 Mercedes C300 4matic. After finding GTAcarkits I order the part and it got to me in less then 5 days! I followed the instructions provided in the YouTube video and was able to install it in about 2 hours. I have only had it for 4-5 days now but it really has changed the name of the game. The installation was not to complicated, the product does everything I thought it would and honestly more. I have gotten several compliments on it in just a few days and I’m extremely happy with the service and product that GTA Car Kits provides. If your like me and weary of aftermarket parts, I can testify that this is a company worth doing business with.
Great Device + great support. working like charm, all as expected…
I am very impressed with the quality of this product. I searched for weeks looking for the best way to add Apple CarPlay to my GLC300 and this was the only product I found that added CarPlay without disrupting any of the car’s original functionality. Everything installed and functioned exactly as shown in this video. The whole project took about an hour and I couldn’t be more pleased with the result. Thank you GTA Car Kits…..!
