Nowadays, it's rare to find a car without a radio, stereo, and all sorts of other car audio parts and accessories. Whether you're missing a stereo or are ready to upgrade, it's important to make the right car stereo choice for you. So how should you choose your Toyota stereo?

What will you use your stereo for?

This is the most important question you should ask yourself when purchasing a car stereo. The uses of a car stereo typically come down to two categories: audio and navigation. The audio sources you typically use will determine what features are needed in your car stereo. Think about how often you plan to use CDs, DVDs, and mobile devices to find the right stereo for you.

Car stereos can also be used for GPS and navigation. These systems vary between stereos, but can come in handy in a variety of situations. Make sure to choose a Toyota stereo with a navigation system that fits your driving habits.

How big do you want your car stereo?

Car audio dash units come in a few different sizes, so it's important to know the dimensions of the space available in your car. Car stereos typically come in two types: single-DIN and double-DIN. A single-DIN car stereo is more compact and will take up less space in your dash. Double-DIN stereos are bulkier, but can hold larger features like touch screens and high-tech navigation systems.

What controls do you want or need?

Another aspect to think about is the controls that are present on your Toyota stereo. Newer car stereos might feature a touch screen model. These can be great for those who like to stay on top of technology trends, but others might prefer physical buttons for ease of use when driving.

After asking yourself these questions, you'll be well on your way to choosing the perfect Toyota stereo for you. Browse eBay's huge selection of car stereos and start enjoying the drive.
