2015 Yaris Radio into 06 XB - Can it be done?

I have a touch screen radio out of a '15 Yaris. As far as size and fit it's a match in my xB.

Only issue is nothing on the harness matches up to the Yaris radio. Is there an adapter kit or is this a waste of time?

Thanks!

Philips to ISO adapter leads are made, I fitted a Kenwood head unit in place of my '05 bB's original Clarion and a lead to convert between the two standards cost me a mere 7.97. I'd expect these to be available globally.

You'll also need to short the park wire (light green on a standard ISO loom) to the casing of the replacement radio unless you tap it into the car's gearchange quadrant lighting circuit, so the when the shifter is in park, it will be possible to watch DVDs.

Toyota looms have fittings for Philips radios as Philips were the company's supplier of O/E audio at around the time that the current ISO standard was introduced, so unlike the rest of the industry (apart from a handful of smaller, low volume manufacturers such as TVR, Reliant and Ligier), even more recent Toyota group products had the Philips connectors while as recently as 2011 in some cases.

Rather than strip every one of the original strands that enter the sockets on the loom, fit individual spades and have loads of spaghetti behind the radio; there are adaptors that allow the radio to be connected via its own ISO leads to the ISO end of the adaptor. The other end of the adaptor then plugs into the car's original Philips-style connectors and the connection then looks neat and professional, which may not be the case if the Philips plugs were cut off and loose terminals were soldered directly to the loom, making fitting an unnecessarily long task.

I'm posting a link to an eBay sale for one of these adaptors: PC2-17-4 Toyota Yaris ISO Stereo Head Unit Harness Adaptor Wiring Loom Lead | eBay

Dammit! I paid way more for the last one of these that I bought and it looks identical. Oh well, such is life!

I have always done HU swap with aftermarket and new wiring.
I never really dealt with this kind of stuff, but my daughter has a 2006 xA and wants to looks stock because she lives in an apartment. I want her to have a GOOD stock type radio.

Thank you for the link, and now Ill look into this Yaris radio to see if its priced right!
