T27 Avensis - replacing a tns510 satnav with aftermarket double din

Recommended Posts

It seems like this should be possible, but has anyone got any guidance for it? I'd like to fit a modern android double din stereo that can run android auto, dab radio, and can use the reversing camera. The current stereo looks like this one: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F153302091909. The satnav is the worst I've ever used, so I end up using my phone propped up in the cupholder for most journeys.

The challenges to fitting a double din seem to be:

Size - the tns510 seems an odd size

Facia

Wiring harnesses

Steering wheel controls

Keeping the stock reversing camera somehow.

 

I've found most of the guides online that so similar with different stereo units, but many of them seem to make this appear complicated to do, and I've found none with the tns510 to double din. Can anyone who's done it put my mind at rest, or offer any guidance?

Hi Tom, welcome to TOC 🙂

Connects2 do a wide range of harnesses/steering wheel control adapters etc. available separately or as complete kits. Not sure if this kit will do your T27 but if it does probably an easy solution. http://www.connects2.co.uk/Product/ProductItem/CTKTY12

I did a little hunting of my own and found a few things which Scott has already covered -

The installation kit Scott linked to is for the T25, but with the exception of the facia plate, should fit the T27. The Auris kit - http://www.connects2.co.uk/Product/ProductItem/CTKTY08 may be even better, because it has the aerial adapter you may need. Contact Connects2 and see if they can supply the Auris kit, exchanging the facia for the CT23TY12 Avensis 2009 - 2015 facia for the same price. A bit of shopping around may be needed.

Thanks both - that's already really helpful.

I've found this video too, which is a good guide to getting the radio out. It's in Turkish, but the pictures do enough talking.
