Current After Market Sat Nav Options (GX)


Simlin

Recommended Posts

I am looking at replacing the OEM entertainment system in my 2015 GX with one specifically with Sat Nav, but it would be great if it had other features too like DAB radio or digital tv tuner etc.

Obviously integration with existing steering wheel controls, reversing camera etc are required.

Any tips on where to look, online or local supply, installer or DIY?

I installed an after market double din unit into my 2012 Kluger a few years ago through ebay.  It is a Joying brand (yep, chinese just like all the others) and it has been brilliant.
The unit was a perfect fit for the opening being 200mm x 100mm so no spacer plates were needed.   When ordering they ask that you first contact them and let them know the exact make and model of car and some pics of the dash.  
Mine came with a simple plug & play loom for my car but the only thing missing was the correct connector for the radio antenna which is a dual diversity boosted type fitted standard by Toyota.  This adapter was only about $5.
Installation was simple and there was plenty of guides on the net.
It does not have DAB radio which is only useful in some capital cities.
Radio reception is very good, twice as good as the original unit.  GPS is fast to link up and accurate.  You can choose from the many free nav apps in google play.
You can install apps and browse the net but it is awkward like most head units.    You can use sites like 9 now etc to watch shows if needed.
There are many makers of these type of head units, some are very good and some are total garbage so it comes down to doing your research.
They may not be available for all models of cars.
The USA Toyota site Toyota Nation is a good place to find more info.
