Aloha Members,

Just brought home a 2007 Manual 4x4 in Voodoo Blue. I'd like to upgrade the head unit this weekend so I'm looking for some quick advice and recommendations in case I need to order some parts.

I'd like a head unit with Wireless Carplay/Android Audio, Bluetooth phone, Sirius, Backup Cam (now or later), DVD, CD, SDcard, works with factory sub and steering wheel controls. The steering wheel has the radio controls but not the phone controls (not sure if that can be added). I'd also like to add factory look USB to blank button and the ability to return the FJ to factory head unit. Don't need Nav since I'll use Google Maps/Waze through Carplay.

The forum is chock full of information but wanted to ask as well. Not looking to create a new thread with redundant information so please point me to any must read threads. I'll use this thread to post my progress.

Thank you again, Goody

I like the fit of the Kenwood DDX919WS with its rounded corners. Any opinions on this head unit and if its available in the US?
I have seen it on Ebay offered from overseas. I love the fact that it fits the FJ without an adapter bezel. I have a DNX695S and a DNX892, I prefer the 695S, but both require a bezel adapter. Both are synced to the steering wheel controls with a Maestro interface. Sometimes I like to play DVDs, so the over seas Kenwoods, though they fit perfect, make this challenging due to the regional codes. There is no region 1 dvd capability for these units that I know of. If you don't care about the dvds, I'm not sure if there are any other things to worry about.
