Metra Electronics Shipping New Dash Kit with Built-in OLED Screen for 2010-2012 Cadillac SRX

HOLLY HILL, FL (03.22.2021) Metra Electronics is now shipping a new dash kit with integrated electronics and a built-in OLED screen designed for 2010-2012 Cadillac SRX models. The new 107-GM5B dash kit is designed for most shallow mount aftermarket radios and Pioneer’s DMH-C2550NEX and DMH-C2500NEX modular receivers. (See radio manufacturer for the most current models).

The 3-inch by 1-inch OLED screen is a first for Metra Electronics, which has previously used built-in color LCD touchscreens in the TurboTouch dash kit series. The OLED screen allows for a clear display of the vehicle’s climate control functions and customization menu settings, which would normally be lost after replacing the radio. The high-contrast OLED screen is located below the aftermarket radio, replacing the factory analog clock, volume, and tuning knobs from the original dashboard.

The factory buttons and controls below that are retained and fit into Metra’s center dash panel. An Axxess steering wheel control interface and harness are included with the kit to retain the use of the factory audio controls on the steering wheel. Additionally, there are several audio control buttons on the center control panel, (seek up and down, band, menu, and back), that can also be retained and used to control the aftermarket radio using Metra’s 107-GM5B. An antenna adapter is also included with this kit to provide a convenient, all-in-one solution for radio replacement and integration.

A video showcasing installation tips and how the OLED screen works can be seen on Metra’s YouTube channel at and instructions are available at

Metra Electronics Launches New Pro LED Headlight Replacement Bulbs from Heise

HOLLY HILL, FL (02.16.2021) – Metra Electronics is now shipping new Pro Series LED replacement headlight bulbs from Heise LED Lighting Systems. The Pro Series features five different bulbs that cover every application of HID currently available on the market, plus seventeen single-beam and four dual-beam lightbulb sizes. Matched with a brand new extreme LED chipset, these bulbs not only outlast but will outperform HID bulbs.

Heise has meticulously designed the bulbs to optimize the LED position in order to maximize the headlight housing optics for both projector and reflector systems. The result is a 16,000 lumens solution that is 260% brighter than other LEDs, using only 70 watts per set with a running temperature of only 115 degrees F. By running much cooler than traditional LED bulbs, the Pro Series has an increased lifespan compared to others on the market.

“The majority of failures with LED replacement bulbs come from not wicking the heat away from the LED chip. The faster a bulb can get the heat away from the LED chips, the longer the lifespan will be. In our new design, the copper substrate is very efficient at moving heat down through the heatsink and then to the fan away from the chip,” stated Jason Anderson, VP of Product Research and Development for Metra Electronics 12volt brands.

Anderson added, “When compared to two popular fanless LED bulbs on the market that are less than half the brightness of the Heise Pro Series, their internal running temperatures were significantly higher, at 160 and 170 degrees F,” says Anderson. “Heise’s new LED bulbs are much brighter, run cooler, and will last longer.”

Heise’s Pro Series bulbs feature a 2mm solid copper thermodynamic core, all-metal construction for the build material, a rotatable collar for beam pattern adjustment, instantaneous full lumen start-up, an IC thermal controller with a high-speed smart fan, built-in reverse polarity protection, and a side-cable connection for slimmer installation. A built-in EMI filter prevents the bulbs from affecting the vehicle’s radio reception and they will work with Heise’s existing CANBUS decoders, which, depending on the vehicle, may be required to stop the flashing of headlights or the “lamp out” message in the instrument cluster (sold separately). Due to their intense brightness, these bulbs are for off-road use only and not for use on public roads.

These solutions are in stock now and come with Heise’s 3-year warranty. Installers can visit for up-to-date, vehicle specific information and installation instructions.

Metra Electronics Launches New Dash Kit Integration Package for Jeep Wrangler JL with Pioneer In-Dash Receivers

HOLLY HILL, FL (02.09.2021) – Metra Electronics is now shipping a fully integrated dash kit package that interfaces with a variety of Pioneer’s in-dash receivers. The first product of this new series, the AXPIO-JL1, is designed specifically for 2018-up Jeep Wrangler JL models and works in both single and dual-zone vehicles. This solution features an Axxess AXPIO Series interface, vehicle specific harnessing, a direct OE replacement camera, built-in STOP/START engine override interface, USB/AUX/HDMI replacement panel, radio antenna adaptor, and a dash kit in one complete package. The AXPIO-JL1 is designed specifically for Pioneer’s Double-DIN 6.8-inch in-dash multimedia receivers, the DMH-W4660NEX, DMH-W4600NEX, and the new DMH-WC5700NEX**. This kit will also work with Pioneer 9-inch receivers, the modular solutions DMH-WC6600NEX and the floating type DMH-WT7600NEX, as well as the floating type 10-inch receiver, the DMH-WT8600NEX, with the additional purchase of the Metra 109-UN02 floating mount kit**.

The AXPIO-JL1 will allow Pioneer’s in-dash receivers to fit in the shallow space within the Jeep dashboard while still retaining important vehicle functions. The included Axxess interface with plug-n-play harnessing allows vehicle information and settings that were controlled on the factory screen to be retained, displayed and controlled on the Pioneer touchscreen. This solution will retain and control most of the settings that would otherwise be lost after replacing the head unit, including HVAC controls and gauges, heated/cooled seats, and other driver personalization options.

Since the factory LVDS backup camera will no longer work, Metra has included an IP68 rated iBEAM backup camera as a high-quality, direct OE replacement. A replacement panel for the USB, AUX, and HDMI ports is also included with 3-feet of wiring, along with a radio antenna adaptor for GPS. For even more value, Axxess’s patented STOP/START engine override interface is built-into the interface, which is designed to disengage the STOP/START feature of the vehicle and keep that feature disengaged even after the key has been cycled.

The built-in integration technology from Axxess also retains safety chimes through an offboard speaker, retains audio controls on the steering wheel, retains R.A.P. (Retained Accessory Power), and provides accessory power (12-volt 10-amp) and NAV outputs for parking brake, reverse, and speed sense. As new vehicle technology has evolved, the factory head unit now goes beyond displaying just the car audio settings, presenting a challenge for installers who are replacing the factory radio with an aftermarket receiver. Losing the ability to display vehicle settings on the screen is not only an inconvenience for many drivers but may prevent them from upgrading their audio system altogether. With Metra’s new solution, installers can now offer a fully integrated package that will fit and function like the factory head unit.

“This new integration with Pioneer’s products is a first for Metra Electronics and our Axxess integration line,” says Jason Anderson, VP of Product Research and Development for Metra’s 12volt brands. “As vehicle technology changes each year to make car audio upgrades more challenging, our solutions will evolve to help installers continue to offer OEM-quality upgrades for their customers,” he added.

A video showcasing this new product is available at (see above) from Metra’s YouTube channel. The AXPIO-JL1 is in stock now and Metra will release additional integration packages from the Axxess AXPIO Series in the near future that will cover even more vehicle applications.

Saddle Tramp Shipping New Plug and Play Audio Harnesses for Harley-Davidson

HOLLY HILL, FL – January 27, 2021 – Saddle Tramp by  Metra Electronics is now shipping ten new audio harnesses designed for Harley-Davidson Batwing Fairing (FLH) and Shark Nose Fairing (FLT) motorcycles with or without the Tour Pak. These harnesses provide plug and play connections for adding aftermarket speakers, bypassing the amplifier, converting the radio connectors, or pre-wiring for adding an amplifier or the Axxess AXDSPX-WR or AXDSPX-HD1 kit. Saddle Tramp’s new audio solutions are designed to save installers time in the bay when upgrading the motorcycle sound system by reducing the need for wire termination.

Harnesses for Adding Amplifiers or DSPs and Radio Conversion

The new BC-9716 is designed for adding an amplifier or the Axxess AXDSPX-WR to 1998-2013 Harley-Davidson FLH and FLT models that have the factory fairing and radio, and the BC-9715 is for 2014-up* models. Both harnesses are wired with pre-terminated input and output harnesses for a fast installation of the Axxess AXDSPX-WR, which is a water-resistant 10-channel DSP. An RCA output harness is included, along with a pre-wired rear speaker plug, used with the BC-9720 backbone harness. Installation of the DSP is optional, as these harnesses also work universally with all amplifiers on the market and wiring has been covered in protective cloth tape for extra durability.

The BC-9713 radio conversion harness will help installers save even more time, as it converts the radio connectors on 1996-1997 models to the 1998-2013 radio harness. This allows for a fast installation with existing Metra products, including the Axxess AXDSPX-HD1 kit, along with Metra’s 99-9600, 99-9800, or 99-9613WR radio replacement kits.

Speaker and Amplifier Bypass Harnesses

To add speaker pods in the front, the BC-9714 is a pair of OE style front speaker pod harnesses for 2014-up* Harley-Davidson FLH and FLT models. It also features an over-molded grommet and OE connectors with 18 gauge oxygen-free copper wire. For adding lower fairing speaker pods on these same models, the BC-9722 is a lower fairing “Y” harness with plug and play OE connectors. The wiring is covered in Techflex for added durability and the harness is sold in pairs. The BC-9726 is an OE amplifier bypass harness for 2014-2020 models and the BC-9725 is a CVO amplifier bypass harness for 2011-2013 models.

Speaker Harnesses for Harley-Davidson Tour-Pak

For adding rear aftermarket speakers to 1998-2020 Harley-Davidson Tour-Pak motorcycles, the BC-9727 is a rear speaker harness that plugs into the OE backbone harness found in the 2014-up* models. If the OE harnesses are unavailable, Saddle Tramps’s BC-9720 is a 4-pin backbone rear speaker extension harness designed for adding rear speakers to 1998-2020 Harley-Davidson FLH and FLT models. It features 18 gauge oxygen-free copper wire that fits the OE connectors and works with Saddle Tramp’s BC-9721 rear 3-way speaker harness splitter. The BC-9727 has an over-molded grommet for a water-tight seal with 18 gauge oxygen-free copper wires and EIA colors.

New Dash Kits and Speaker Adapter from Metra Electronics

HOLLY HILL, FL (01.25.2021) – Metra Electronics has a new speaker adapter for Mitsubishi and four new dash kits in stock and shipping, designed for 1996-1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee models, 2017-2020 Mitsubishi Mirage models, and the 2020 Toyota Highlander. In addition to creating dash kits for the standard ISO Single and Double-DIN radios, Metra is the only aftermarket dash kit manufacturer designing installation kits specific to the non-traditional radio sizes that have been hitting the market.

“There are many obstacles to overcome when designing installation kits for radios going into vehicles that have limited space. The new radio designs with less bulk provide Metra’s engineers with more freedom in creating a product to install a sleek looking screen into a dashboard that doesn’t have space for the larger footprint of the typical ISO Double-DIN radio that we’ve been designing for over the past 20 years. The new style radios are a major improvement to our industry and Metra is proud to be at the forefront of this trend with solutions to make installation seamless,” says Colin Ehrhardt of Metra Electronics. These new solutions make radio replacement easier and are designed to match the OEM look and feel of the dashboard.

The 107-CH5 for 1996-1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee models is textured to match the factory finish and designed specifically for Double-DIN radios with an “L” shaped chassis design with the radio chassis at the top of the screen. It is also compatible with Pioneer’s 6.8-inch modular receivers, like the DMH-C2500NEX, DMH-C2550NEX, and the new DMH-WC5700NEX. Installers should refer to the radio manufacturer for the most up to date information. This dash kit could also be used to mount a full-sized standard ISO Double-DIN radio but would require additional cutting and the vents below the radio would be lost.

Toyota Highlander Kits (Click below to play)

The 108-TO7HG fits the 2020 Toyota Highlander without the factory 12.3-inch screen and is painted gloss black. It is designed specifically for Pioneer’s 8-inch modular receivers like the DMH-C5500NEX and installers should refer to the radio manufacturer for the most up to date information.

95/99-7019 Kits (Click below to play)

The 95-7019 and 99-7019 dash kits are designed for 2017-2020 Mitsubishi Mirage and 2018-2020 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 models. The 95-7019 is for a Double-DIN radio provision and the 99-7019 is for a Single-DIN radio with a pocket included. Both kits have high polished processing for a gloss plastic look that matches both the aftermarket radio and factory finish.

Metra has also just released a new speaker mounting adapter plate for 2007-2019 Mitsubishi models. The 82-7000 adapter is sold as a pair and has a versatile break-away tab design that allows for the installation of 6-inch or 6.75-inch aftermarket speakers. The adapter plate is designed for 2008-2017 Lancer, 2010-2014 Lancer Sport, 2014-2015 Mirage, and 2007-2019 Outlander models from Mitsubishi. The 82-7000 is now shipping and features a twist adapter design for installation with tabs for extra support if needed.

Metra Shipping New Kits for Mitsubishi, Mini, and Universal Mount for Pioneer

HOLLY HILL, FL (12.23.2020) – Metra Electronics has a universal floating mount kit and three new dash kits now available. These dash kits were introduced at SEMA360 and are now in stock.

The 107-UN02 is a universal floating mount engineered exclusively for the Pioneer Modular Solutions DMH-C2500NEX and DMH-C2500NEX 6.8-inch touchscreen in-dash receivers*. The 107-UN02 is designed to “float” the modular Pioneer touchscreen display panel in front of a vehicle’s original radio location using a series of included brackets, plus provide the ability to easily mount the Pioneer hide-away chassis into the radio/pocket location of more than 250 existing Metra Double-DIN kits for 1990 to current vehicle applications. This patent-pending solution completely encases the touchscreen display panel and works similar to Metra’s existing 108-UN02 and 109-UN02 floating mount kits for Pioneer. A vehicle-specific Double-DIN Metra dash kit, sold separately, is required for use with the 107-UN02.

Two new dash kits for 2011-2016 Mini Countryman and Mini Paceman models without the factory navigation are also in stock and shipping. The 107-MI1 is designed specifically for the 6.8-inch modular Pioneer receivers, the DMH-C2550NEX and DMH-C2500NEX*. 

The 108-MI1 is designed specifically for the Pioneer 8-inch DMH-C550NEX modular receiver*. Since there is limited space within the vehicle’s dashboard that is too small to fit a standard Double-DIN radio, Metra has solved this obstacle by utilizing the same design from the 107-UN02 to “float” the Pioneer touchscreen in the factory radio location. Both kits include a blank-out for the factory radio controls that are removed from the upper panel and have a patent-pending design. The high polished processing on these kits provides a look that’s similar to both the aftermarket radio and the vehicle’s factory finish.

Also available from Metra is the 95-7020 dash kit. This kit is for an ISO Double-DIN radio provision and designed to fit 2018-2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross ES models. It has high polished processing to give a gloss plastic look to match both the aftermarket radio and factory finish.
