I'm going to have to partially retract myself but it doesn't change that there's no inter compatibility between the units. I was reading the software license and yeaaaaaa, it's running on a Linux base. I doubt anyone's willing to invest any time hacking through the system the way they have on Mazdas, though (different units running somewhat similar software throughout the entire Toyota lineup as opposed to 100% the same throughout for Mazda).

After reading the posts on this forum and visiting the Pioneer website, the best solution would be to replace the pioneer avh-2558 with another Pioneer unit. It would be plug and play. There are comparable units for a reasonable price on EBay. The back-up camera, antennae would all connect.

I mention this because I was surprised how many Scion owners replaced the factory unit with an aftermarket unit (usually Pioneer). Before buying my I/M, I shopped for a used XD. But I got the I/M because I had driven the Auris in Europe and really liked it.

Good luck with whatever solution you choose.

The stock unit is pretty good, but some people want more.

Crutchfield is the go-to source in what fits and also what adapters you need. https://www.crutchfield.com/g_300/All-Car-Stereos.html?tp=5684

There is nothing special with the iM, but if I recall you will need a mounting kit to make this work.

I do not believe there is a Plug-N-Play head unit for our car, unfortunately, but maybe the new GT-86's head unit would though.
