SoundLinQ2 (Model SL2i/SL2i-UP) is our second-generation iPod integration system. It still delivers full functionality for your iPod™ - it just does so in a much smaller unit.
Functions include touch screen and steering wheel control, and easy-to-read, expanded 26-character display. You can even browse by song title or playlist right through your vehicle's audio system controls.
If you're sporting a fifth generation navigation system, the SL2i/SL2i-UP broadens browsing options to include playlist, artist, album, genre, audiobook, podcast. It also incorporates our new state of the art noise canceling technology for incredible sound clarity.
The SL2i/SL2i-UP provides direct plug-and-play connection for most Toyota and Lexus vehicles 2001 and newer with and without a Navigation system. No more cassette adaptors, FM transmitters, or cigarette lighter chargers. With the SoundLinQ2-SL2i/SL2i-UP, you can enjoy clear, genuine high quality sound through your factory audio system.
Our unique SoundLinQ2 technology doesn't affect factory-installed components such as 6-disc CD changer, CD/DVD changer or satellite radio. When you connect SL2i/SL2i-UP to the audio system, your vehicle recognizes it as an additional OEM CD changer, MD changer or MP3 audio device. And since the SoundLinQ2 system utilizes the factory audio system connectors, it installs easily without compromising your vehicle's warranty.
Audio input dedicated for Apple® iPod™ can only be used for iPod™ integration. Control of iPod™ is done through your head unit or the steering wheel controls.
To switch between the SL2i/SL2i-UP sources you need to use "DISC" or "CD" button on the head unit
If your vehicle is equipped with a factory steering wheel control you will be able to switch between the SL2i/SL2i-UP sources using "MODE" button on the steering wheel.
