Hi Metra Rep.

I have an 08 Highlander Hybrid.

Will I need a wiring harness, antenna or steering wheel module or will all of these plug and play?

Thanks

Metra,
Is the 95-5812 all I need to get this working in a 2006 Ford Explorer XLT (Standard audio)?

Thanks

You would need a TYTO-01 and an ASWC-1 if you have steering wheel control.

Can you please confirm (if you are aware of) on rear view camera cabling - is it pre-run in 2011 CRV or need to run part of installation?

thanks.

What is the return policy for the unit if it did not fit in the car?

Metra,

To confirm: MDF-8217-1 will fit 2012 Toyota RAV4. Plug and play.

Will I need an extra part for the steering wheel controls?

Thanks! It's great to have a responsive rep on here!

Hi Metra Rep,
Do you have a kit for a 2008 VW EOS?

Save your money on this one!

1st problem: It's just an overall ugly, dated interface.

2nd problem: It doesn't work.

I installed the Metra mdf-5812-2 for a 2008 Ford Mustang. Everything worked fine for 2 weeks until I updated the maps on the GPS SD card. The update process is simple and went without a hitch. However, after I put the SD card back into my system the navigation displays "GPS Loading" on a white screen. The GPS never loads and this renders navigation completely useless indefinitely.

I contacted Metra support and they told me the unit needs to be shipped to Conneticut. Of course, I have to pay shipping.

The Metra support gave me the address and said "I hope this helps".

I'm not the only one experiencing these issues.

So don't buy this product if you intend to use the latest maps and don't buy this product if you want a fancy looking screen.

Pros:
-big screen, decent resolution
-lots of input/output options (bluetooth, usb, ipod, micro sd, rca, camera, dvd, mp3 disc, etc)
-onboard navigation (good reception even with antenna under dash)
-plays mp4 videos from disc or sd card
-plays video while car is in motion
-bluetooth calling
-looks like it belongs in the car (blends into dash)

Cons:
-requires extra adapters and modules to retain steering wheel controls, on-star, satellite, warning chimes, etc
-includes no installation instructions (hard to find online)
-resistive touch screen
-ugly interface
-no mention of supported audio/video formats/codecs
-navigation is expensive to update and not as pretty as a Tom-Tom
-most functions only avaiable via included remote control

Hi, will the Metra MDF-8222-1 fit a 2012 NON-JBL Toyota Highlander? Will I be needing to purchase extra components/adaptors?

My old car is very simple, 4 speakers, no steering wheel control, no camera. So I believe I could just splice wire it in if it physically fits.

Where can I get the physical dimensions of a particular unit?

I purchased the ford direct fit during the first woot offering. I recently tried to start the navigation by pressing the navigation button. all i get is a black screen. it just stays black and does nothing I hit it again then goes back to radio. I tried resetting the unit by reset button with no luck.Is there something else I can try. Unit is less than a month old and I have only used the navigation on it 3 times thanks

Just purchased one for my Chrysler van last time these were up on Woot. Installed nicely (although it was a tight fit), soldered my connections, and even foil-taped the head unit as recommended. After a few weeks in the saddle here are my comments:
1. GPS is laggy and hard to use. “POI not found” is a common message even after choosing the POI from the drop down menu. What gives! (first time through you will have to set your state)
2. GPS has no speed limit information like my old Garmin. If you are conditioned to using your GPS to check the speed limit while driving like I am, Be Prepared that infor is not here.
3. Resistive touch screen is laggy and unresponsive. Sometimes I have to tap the thing multiple times to get it to do something.
4. IPOD interface seems to have bugs. It plays my music through the 30pin connector on my 2nd gen iPod just fine but if I try to fiddle around looking through folders for a song it sometimes freezes up the whole interface and I’m forced to reset the unit.
All in all it is a nice unit for the price and most of the above complaints could be fixed in a firmware/GPS update. Happy Wooting!

I got one for my Ford F250 last time they were offered. Does anyone know where to find installation instructions? I've exhausted all of my ideas to find any, including calling Metra (they seemed surprised that I would ask for them) and contacting Woot (they never replied).

Hey,

I posted in the deal thread last time...

Was curious if any of these are compatible with a 2002 Pontiac Grand AM GT?

Actually, flaky wiring COULD cause freezing. That said, an automotive unit should be able to withstand power regulation issues if that was the cause. I'm with you in the presumption that the problem is something else but either way, it's still the build of the unit.

In searching about these devices, I have found LOTS of mention on the net but no "user reviews" or even professional reviews. It's as if these were spammed everywhere recently.

I would have bought one of these anyway, if it weren't for your post. I appreciate it.

firebirdude wrote:Funny story.

I had a customer come into my shop with one of these about... 2 weeks ago? It was freezing up and rebooting randomly. He just wanted to know if I knew what was causing the problem. I told him I could inspect all the wiring behind the dash if he wanted, as a flaky power connection could cause rebooting...but not freezing. He told me all his connections were soldered and it would be highly unlikely the cause. I agreed and said there's really nothing more I can do, but just out of curiousity... where did he buy this unit? His reply, "Woot dot com." I laughed out loud as I KNEW I had seen them up on Woot not but 2-3 weeks before that. We talked about Woot a bit before I bid him good luck.

Moral of the story... think I'd pass on these. Not to mention I've had my share of bad electronic interface modules from Metra (XSVI-9003-NAV interface and the Mazda RX8 kit come to mind if you're reading this Metra).

Add ASWC-1 for SWC and all good. Is it amplified? If so you would need to add a TYTO-01.
