Aftermarket in dash GPS

Postby Hammer1080p » Tue Oct 12, 2010 12:20 pm

Hey Guys,

I've been looking at an in-dash GPS/DVD system for my '04. I found this seller on eBay and have been in contact with him. Im wondering if this head-unit will fit in place of my old stock one... Its for a Camry, but looks very similar. I haven't been able to find the dimensions of this unit but it seems to be very similar to the ones we have.

It is priced at $579.00cdn, shipped. There is no demonstration of the GPS but I'm assuming its because there is no antenna attached. Also its running a Windows based system which allows me to customize it.

If you guys want to check out the his eBay store search 'trustigo' or even youtube 'trustigo'

Once again, any input would be GREATLY APPRECIATED!

When I was comparing the jbl units between the lara and newer camry (just from pics) I found the plugs in back had different harnesses. The fit looks close but it may require some wiring. Your best bet would be to take some measurements at a dealership, or better yet, ask the seller to measure the top and side dimensions of the unit's face.

Thanks,
I emailed the seller and ill see what the back of the Hu looks like. If the harnesses are different, is there anything i can do or buy to convert the wires into the appropriate harness size?

if its for the camry it wont fit
i think theres a thread for it, although it looks similar its not the same
but theres no harm in asking the guy for dimensions
good luck!

ps what else u can do is just get an aftermarket unit like an eclipse (which should be able to still plug into steering wheel controls) and buy a double din trim for it
