WOW! What an awesome product. Like one of the other reviewers here said, do yourself a favor and see if you can connect it without taking the dash of your Echo apart. The video really helps orient just where the plug goes, and you can reach under the dash behind the radio and plug it in by feel – just make sure the clip is down. Took me less than 10 minutes to have it fully installed in my glove box and I was rocking! Absolutely fantastic, this is a great product, easy to install, great helpful videos, and most importantly, great sound!

“I was looking for a Ipod adapter for my car when I found your website. I have a Fm transmitter I used with poor success. In the Washington Dc area, the FM band is full loaded. Another Ipod adapter was too expensive for the my use – only a few time a year. To change my very good car radio will be a 200$ and more expense. For the money and my need, this was the best bang for the buck. Having an AUX plug, ability to recharge the Ipod and fast free shipping help too.
Shipping was very fast and free.
The video was helpful as installation tool and as selling point. Was very easy and took only few minutes too install the kit on my Echo 2003. The connection behind the radio is easily accessible via under the dashboard. No tools was needed.
Like my wife, I use an iPod 5th generation. I removed the ashtray and replaced it with the module. I really like that I can control the Ipod via the factory radio. If you want an Ipod functionality and don’t want to replace your factory car radio, this is the most bang for the buck you can have.

“Just installed it myself in my 2000 Toyota Echo.
Took about 45 minutes and it works perfectly!
Do as the video says and find a magnet first (I lost a screw in the back of my console somewhere, but 3/4 seems to hold in my radio just fine).”

“I just finished converting my massive cd collection to iTunes and wanted to be able to use my iPod in my car.
I own a 2004 Toyota Echo hatchback and didn’t want to upgrade my stereo since there’s really no good place to put speakers in the rear and the factory system is decent. I saw your car kit online and thought I’d take a chance.
It arrived today and I was able to install it in about twenty minutes…plus another ten minutes while I delightedly bounced around to various songs.
No special tools, just a screwdriver, and I was all set. I ran the cable from the deck through to my glovebox so the unit can “hide” from would-be thieves.
Great kit, easy to install and a reasonable price.
