  1. Stereo Upgrades that integrate Remote Touch Interface....

    Lexus CT200h Audio/Electronics Forum
    All I can find is the discontinued IVIC 6D, and the new head unit from this link from Grom. It actually shows a video the the Remote Touch being used, so that is cool. Ideally, a phone mirrorin system that integrates Remote Touch would keep the system capabilites updated with your phone. Does...
  2. Additional battery needed for aftermarket amplifier/subwoofer

    Lexus CT200h "How-To"/Do-It-Yourself
    Hey guys... I just replaced the headunit in my 2015 and I'm moving to the speakers next. The only thing I can't seem to find online is information on whether or not an extra battery is needed or recommended. Can any of you shed light for me?
  3. Crazy car stereo insurance story. Need help!

    Lexus CT200h Audio/Electronics Forum
    Soooooo, my wife spilled a latte all over the climate controls and center console of our 2013 CT200h w/navigation. It shorted out the climate controls (module with the clock), but everything else seems to work fine. Insurance said they would cover the costs of repairs. I went to an insurance...
  4. Replace factory radio, CAN-bus question

    Lexus CT200h Audio/Electronics Forum
    I want to replace the factory radio and am concerned about the CAN-bus hi / lo wires which go in the radio. Do these need an adapter or can they be left unconnected? What is the effect if left unconnected? Has anyone who has changed the headunit had any dash lights come on? Thanks 2014...

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    I'm a VWTDI owner that is planning on switching to Lexus 200h. I want a used. nav+heated seats+back up. My questions are: 1. is there a real difference in the 2013 and 2014 ? I've read that the 2013 is noisier than the 2014. 2. What is the difference in F-sport and a base or premium? Does...
  6. Stereo Build

    Lexus CT200h Audio/Electronics Forum
    I'm trying to decide how best to build my stereo to get rid of the atrocious base stereo in our cars. What I'm thinking about going with (since I can't reasonably get a double din in there) is: Alpine PDX-V9 Focal 165FX components Focal 165AC for the rear doors Alpine 10" Type-R sub I am...
  7. Audio system upgrade from OEM Premium stereo

    Lexus CT200h Audio/Electronics Forum
    I've read through all of the listings under the Audio forum and although very informative, I could not find the answer I was looking for so here goes a new thread. I am looking to upgrade everything but the Factory head unit on my 2013 CT with premium sound. I will be installing the following...
  8. Aftermarket Stereo causing TPMS to flash

    Lexus CT200h Audio/Electronics Forum
    I have the 2014 CT200h, without the nav system. Didn't buy it because it was $4K more expensive and didn't like the idea of using a mouse to control it. That said, I immediately went to a car stereo shop and had them install a Kenwood DDX8901HD with a back-up camera. The device is pretty...
  9. ct200h aftermarket stereo replacment - Standard single DIN double DIN?

    Lexus CT200h Audio/Electronics Forum
    I don't own a ct200h yet, but I REALLY like what I see with the car with the test drives I've done. The biggest sticking point is the stereo. The models I've looked at (non Nav) don't appear to take a standard aftermarket stereo. I've done searches on this forum and found some folks putting...
  10. Does the Base Stereo have a subwoofer?

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    This may be a silly question, but does the base 6 speaker system have a subwoofer? I realize it's called "6" speaker system, but just want to make sure! And if not, what is everyone doing as an easy pnp solution?

  13. new car... new stereo

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Yeah, I've finally had it with my gas guzzling Scooby Doo. Loving this CT200h! After some success with installing the paint film myself, I thought I give the audio a shot. Instead of doing it myself, I succumbed to confusion and finally solicited some professional help. Now my previous...
  14. Qustion about bluethooth phone and stereo system....

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    If I'm listening to either my CD's or mp3 files on the USB flash drive and my phone rings, will it pause the music or will it just keep on playing? And if it keeps playing will it mute the music? Otherwise I'll just shut the stereo when I answer a call or make a call.
  15. How is the standard stereo with iPhone?

    Lexus CT200h General Discussion Forum
    Looking at purchasing a CT200h. I test drove a 2011 model but looking at getting a 2012. How is the standard stereo and iPhone connectivity? When plugged in through USB, can you still operate playlists/songs manually on the phone? What about through Bluetooth? Does the stock stereo display...
