Re: Using stock backup camera w/ aftermarket Nav system

Maybe this has been covered, but...

On the 2010, it appears the camera *AND* ceiling speakers are routed through the same connector under the driver's kick panel. I couldn't find the connector as described for the earlier models for the ceiling speakers, but found one in the same location with all the correct color wires for the parking camera and roof speakers. I disconnected it...ceiling speakers wen't quiet and the backup camera would not turn on. Plugged it back in, and it was back to normal.

This is good news for me because I don't want to have to run any wires behind the mirror, just seems like a PITA.

Re: Using stock backup camera w/ aftermarket Nav system

So, where was this harness?

A picture would be awesome fantastic!

Also, is the stereo harness for the 07-09 the same for the 2010-2011?

Re: Using stock backup camera w/ aftermarket Nav system

Yup, that looks like the connector I found as well. As for the stereo harness, yes, it's the same, at least through 2010. I'd be really surprised if Toyota changed it for 2011.

Re: Using stock backup camera w/ aftermarket Nav system

Well I did this tonight.. and Took Pictures of where to access these wires in the kick panel. (please read my notes, not just pictures, first time through, I connected the wrong wires)

Things that you will need to do the Job.
3 each, 20 awg wire taps.
1 each, 8-10 foot RCA or Video Cable
Electrical tape and solder.

The Harness is located in the Drivers Kick Panel. Pull the Dead pedal, door sill threshold and kick panel cover off.

Here is what you will see, In this picture I already took off the factory covering to expose wires.


Next Disconnect the connector.


Locate Wires that are needed.

The Red with the grey random marks on it is the + of the Video Feed
The White with the Grey random marks on it is the - Video Feed
The Red with yellow strip is the switch wire or signal wire.

(in this picture, the solid red and white on the left is NOT THE CORRECT WIRES, My first time through I tapped these wires and they are not correct. They don't have any random gray markings on them)



Here are my taps installed, AGAIN, the SOLID WHITE AND RED Wires on the left are not correct, you need to access the ones that are on the top row Position 2 and 3 from the right



Here is a single side of an RCA cable that I have spliced out. The center sheathed wire on the RCA is the + wire, connect that to the red wire with random gray markings.



And here is the finished Job.
It took me 2 hrs to wire everything up, install the radio and run the GPS / BT Mic And I pod connector to the dash Pocket.



Now I just have to figure out how to get the camera better visibility in the back so we can have a whole screen worth of information. yes, its 3:30 am.. im off to bed!

I hope this helps people figure this out and get it done right cause it works and its sweet!

Re: Using stock backup camera w/ aftermarket Nav system

Just a little illustration I whipped up, which may or may not help. The wires with electrical tape are the speaker wires for the ceiling speakers.

Re: Using stock backup camera w/ aftermarket Nav system

I am not sure why disconnecting the power lead to the mirror shuts off power to the camera itself. Is there a way to disconnect the monitor in the rearview altogether without the 3 second blue screen? I would prefer to have it off altogether if I can.

Thanks for all of your help on this - going to tackle this on the next warm day around here.
