Gen3 Prius T-Spirit - Audio Options

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

New user to this forum, but have been driving a Gen 2 Prius T-Spirit (57 plate) for 3 years, and just traded it in for a 1 year old Gen 3 T-Spirit. First impressions are lovely, then I found the audio changes.

No JBL Speakers/amp - and the silly software issue with the bluetooth audio where you can't select playlist/album.

I gather a JBL upgrade (amp/speaker) is available for over £1k - is that right?

I also gather there is an upgrade to fit a USB socket into the centre console next to the AUX socket - anyone know how much that costs and if most dealers will fit it?

It seems the software issue has been done to death with no resolution (except buy a 2012 model!) so the USB option sounds a good alternative - as long as this gave the missing functionality that bluetooth misses.

The JBL upgrade would be nice, but at that price yikes.

Appreciate people's opinions, and any info as I suspect my dealer won't know about most of the above!

Way back when the gen3 came out there was an ipod integration kit (Toyota dealer fit option) which AFAIR included a USB port. It wasn't cheap though.

Edit:

Just found this on google

Thank you! That looks promising - and I'm not far from Sandhurst, will ask them.
