Default Scion Head Units and iPod Integration: Here's your solution

I've was researching this topic obsessively, attempting to retro my '05 tC with a new iPod head unit and I'd thought I'd share my finding s with everyone.

My solution was to score an '08 xB with base stereo, but it sounds like many others are trying to retrofit their older rides with the heads.

You'll need the following:

Scion iPod Head Unit (All units that support iPod inegration will work)
Console Cable (Plugs into factory wiring harness, then into console. Provides "jack" for iPod cable, PN PT546-21061)
iPod Cable (Plugs into iPod, then into console, PN PT546-21062)

Lastly, you'll need a cable that integrated into the factory wiring harness. This cable is nearly impossible to find, until now.

A seller on eBay has made a custom version of the integrated cable that DRAMATICALLY simplifies retrofitting a Scion model that doesn't include the iPod wiring harness.

The custom cable plugs directly into the iPod head unit, then into PN PT546-21061. This will allow you to finally get your iPod connected properly into your Scion head unit.

You can find it here: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Scion...14190066QQrdZ1

And there you have it! All the pieces required to retrofit ANY Scion iPod head unit into ANY Scion vehicle.

I hope this helps those who've been struggling with a solution...

Good information , but I think this has been covered a few times.

Hmmm, I haven't seen it here and I dug pretty deep.

I thought this might make for a good sticky, as I've seen loads of questions re: this topic but few answers.

Default Scion to Ipod interface cables

There are two types of cables for the Scion Head Unit (T 1806) to ipod interface available on ebay.
Cable “SC12234” replaces the main harness wires that are missing on the 2005 Scions.
Cable “SC12235” connects directly to the head unit and connects to the ipod.
I have purchased both of these cables (for different applications) and they have worked great.
I am sure that they will also work with the new T 1808 & T 1809 head units.
