Hi folks,

Researching replacing the stock 'headunit' with a carplay capable unit. Considering sony.xav-ax7000.

Major questions:

Can anyone share the pinouts for the headunit connectors? I have the amp side pinouts I think.

Critical... will the hvac controls / display still function after the Hu is removed?

Other questions:
  1. I understand amp bypass needed due to digital vol control signal from Hu, which would be missing. Woofer / tweeter have separate outputs from that amp. How would I wire those to the aftermarket single outputs? Need to add xover?
  2. Are the backup camera signals composite, ie could be routed to aftermarket HU?
  3. Easiest place to run power through firewall?
Thanks.

Go buy a converter harness for your car and wire it to the harness pigtail that comes with the head unit. The HVAC operates separately from the head unit.

I posted the pinouts for the second gen on another thread: Splicing into AUX wires near the audio connector
