Default Toyota CD-MP3 radios

Hi,

I have a '99 XLE, but it only came with a single CD player. I'd
like to add MP3 to the car. Are the newer Toy radios compatible
with my car, or should I just look at after market units. I
guess installing a genuine Toy radio would be easier - if the
wiring/connectors were/are still the same.

Thoughts?

TIA!

Norm

Don't screw with a new factory radio, they're too damn expensive. Go to
www.crutchfield.com. They have all kinds of radios, and they also have any
other equipment like wire harness adapters or mounting brackets. They also
help you out over the phone with installation, which is a breeze on your
camry

actually buying a new stereo from www.bought4less.com is easiest

CD, CD-R, MP3 capable stereos
The stereos bolt in EXACTLY like the toyota radio using the toyota brackets
you have now amd
with the wiring harness adpter plugs in to the Toyota wiring just as it does
now.

OH hear is the two big reasons why its better

Lower Cost, and Better sound along with a TON more features and sound
controls.

Go to Wal-Mart and get a Sony.

Stay away from Bought-for-less...it's a rip...

Seriously...I have bought TWO MP3 units from E-Bay, both JVCs, both in
EXCELLENT condition. One even had all the packing, the remote, manual,
etc. I lucked out...the winning bidder backed out and I got a $249 unit
form my high bid of...$50 with $10 shipping. The other was a $349 unit
that I spent a whopping $81 including shipping on. They work well, I like
them

The other unit I bought was just a CD only, an Aiwa, sounds marvelous, a
whole $28...
