Installing the Kenwood DDX919WS

Hey guys,

I just ordered the Kenwood ddx919ws and will be installing it in a couple of weeks when it arrives. i've read through some forum posts and it sounds like i will need a few additional connectors.I'd like to keep the steering wheel controls, backup camera input, and the usb port connection. here's what i've found below,


PAC USB-TY1 Toyota/Lexus OEM USB Port Retention Cable (for OEM usb connection)
https://www.amazon.com/PAC-USB-TY1-T.../dp/B00F0YJ49O

Metra 40-LX11 Toyota antenna adapter(for OEM antenna)
https://www.amazon.com/Metra-40-LX11...sr=1-2-catcorr

Steering control connector is included with the headunit.

does anyone have a recommendation for the connector i will need to connect the factory back up camera?

Wanted to bring this back to life. How did the install go? Thinking of getting one myself and wasn't sure if there were any wiring differences installing in US Spec BRZ.

I actually ended up going with the DDX920WDABS, I was able to get it with a harness from carbon car systems. was a bit challenging but with the wiring diagram i got it installed. their harness was ok i just had to rearrange pins for the steering controls, amp power and the polarity for one of the speakers was reversed. if you go for it just double check the pins on the harness. im enjoying the radio though.

What kinds of problems did you have before rearranging the pins? Do you believe it's the 920 vs older models difference, or was the harness just messed up?
Asking because I have a 918 and everything works but not confident in my ability to hear reverse polarity if it only affects one of the speakers.

one of the speakers had no audio. it was just the harness, i think the 920 is the same harness as the older models(i know its the same as the 919)
