Hey guys,

Lets find the best head unit for the FJ!

I have been looking into aftermarket head units and can't seem to find a solid choice.

Anybody replaced their FJammer with a tablet?

I've seen a few people mount a tablet in front of the FJammer, but has anybody actually replaced the unit? Curious to see what kind of work would be required for this. Also curious to see if it's even possible to wire the tablet to the car (with adapters?) and still retain steering wheel control.


People mounting in front of FJammer:

Found this from 2012: (lets see if time brings anything new!)

I've found that my FJammer is perfectly acceptable.

For my workbench that is:


Oh, is that not the kind of mod you were thinking of?

I didn't do a tablet but the touchscreen of my Kenwood DDX790 works and fits fine.


I've recently seen some Chinese android based decks that fit a bit better. I doubt they sound better than my Kenwood eXcelon system though.

I installed a alpine 007 apple CarPlay unit in my deck. Does ecerything I want it to do. And the apple CarPlay is a lot easier to gps everything while I'm driving.

OK ... I'd be glad to sell you my old one for $1250.00

(just kidding, I sold my old HU for $100 last year) Those Pumpkin Android units are a perfect fit, but I'm leery of the 2.0 volts pre-amp outputs. Kenwood and most other quality manufacturers output 5.0 volts.

I would definitely take this opportunity to upgrade.

Have you guys found a good dash kit? I was just installing a Pioneer AVH-X3700BHS with a Scosche TA2076B and it fits like crap! Big gap around the HU and just a bad fit in general.

I just installed the 2010 Pioneer MVH-P8200BT single DIN into my 2010 FJ and used Metra install kit. Unfortunately nothing I have used is perfect and Metra is best I have come across in my travels to-date.
