2006 does not have stereo controls on the steering wheel. 2006.5 does. Also the 2006.5 has an auxiliary input for Mp3 or whatever players. (not to be confused with the Ipod interface)...Awesome!! I Pick-up mine on Monday. Just wondering, is there a code in the Vin or in the door jamb that designates the production date between 2006 and 2006.5?
...and mine has both! (iPod and AUX inputs) Does anyone else have the upgraded radio? What do you think of it?2006 does not have stereo controls on the steering wheel. 2006.5 does. Also the 2006.5 has an auxiliary input for Mp3 or whatever players. (not to be confused with the Ipod interface)...
Both the 06 and 06.5 have the AUX input. Only the model with an upgraded iPod headunit have the iPod input. I had the upgraded HU when I ordered mine but took it out after a few months and installed an Alpine. There are some cool features with the factory upgrade but if you're installing any kind of a system it just doesn't have the stuff you need. ie: RCA outputs and the iPod controls are sketchy at best....and mine has both!

The iPod radio works great. I have it in my xB and I love it. When I get my MINI I'm going to get the iPod radio for it too. I love not having to mess with cd's.I don't know that I would be installing any stereo extras any time soon, so I was hoping the upgraded one would amuse me for now. I am absolutely thrilled with the iPod playback feature, as this means I will no longer have to deal with cds.
Does it at least work okay?
First off welcome to the family, I just got my 06.5 PW last Tues the 16th. I got the upgraded radio with Ipod controls. I am not an aficionado of stereos so the factory one sounds great for me. The Ipod controls are great and I love the option of Ipod or any other Aux input. As for OEM parts from a Scion dealer I have been going through Conicelli http://www.trademotion.com/partlocator/index.cfm?siteid=840Cool! I think I'll like it then. What do you guys think of the door sill enhancements? I might get those too. And possibly chrome door handles. Does anyone have a good pic of a TCM with them? I rather like chrome. I was thinking of getting this stuff from TRD Sparks. Any better ideas?
