Hi all,

Im new to the forum and have an 08SR5 that is alive and strong. I still have the stock stereo/navigation equipment and while I still find the JBL system plenty adequate for me, I wish I had better options like being able to connect my phone and stream music etc. anyone have any recommendations on reasonably priced mods to either upgrade the unit altogether or an adapter of sorts? Thanks in advance for any shared words of wisdom!

Welcome to the forum! I would say go check out what Crutchfield has to offer. If you have the JBL system, do you have BT? Mine has BT, but I will say it leaves a lot to be desired in terms of automatic connection. I have thought about swapping it out, but it is very low on the priority list.

I thought for years that all I had was Bluetooth for hands free also. But on my system I had to make sure to link the Bluetooth for audio too. It’s like a two step process unlike new tech that is link and your done. I’d check it out.
