      Hi Peter,

      The tray back camera you can mount how ever you like, we do not have a set place as every single tray is different. The camera we provide can be mounted vertical and flipped as we have integrated a option to flip the screen. This allows you to be able to mount the camera from directly under the tray should you like aiming down at the tow ball or rear.

      Thanks

        How do you connect a front facing camera to this reverse camera set up on a 2012 SR5 Hilux.To display on the nav screen?

        Is a diode require to block a signal from reverse camera if you want to view front camera?Do you require a switch for front camera?

          Hi Steve,

          We do not have a front facing camera for the 86 sorry, our cameras as specifically designed for the rear.

          Thanks

      Hi Liz,

      Depends on the head unit you have in the vehicle, best to come show us the vehicle so we can confirm your options but yes we should be able to offer you something.

      If you are interstate we can recommend partner stores.

      Thanks

    Hi Daniel,

    For the 2012-onwards Yaris sedan display audio (without navigation), will something like the 86 kit work also? (e.g. http://www.rydetoyota.com.au/used-car/toyota/yaris/yrs/u050965/)

    Cheers.

    • Daniel Gardener Author
      Daniel Gardener August 17, 2015

      Yes the kit will still work, but if the screen you have in the car is non-navigation it will require an additional look.

      Please call us on (02) 9831 3288 to confirm exactly what you will need but on the screen shown in that link yes we can add a camera.

      Thanks

    Hi, I just fitted a reverse camera to my 2015 sr hilux but can’t seem to get a display. Should it come up automatically or is there another way to view camera output?

    • Daniel Gardener Author
      Daniel Gardener August 24, 2015

      Hi Matt,

      Yes it should come up automatically. Can you check the connection from the red wire from the yellow video feed cable near the head unit. Ensure this red wire is connected to the grey +ACC feed from the rear of head unit and is making good connection.

      Thanks

    does it automatically display the screen on selecting reverse gear.
    can i also activate the screen while driving forward.

    • Daniel Gardener Author
      Daniel Gardener November 30, 2015

      Yes Geoff it will automatically come up on the screen when in reverse. If you want you can arrange to have a switch installed so you can activate it at other times.

    Hi, I am looking to get a reverse camera installed on my GTS 86. This will be on to the OEM head unit. Do you guys have a workshop in Melbourne? Alos, the camera as on your website is for 149, how much would you charge for installation?

      Hi Russell,

      We are yet to test a kit for the 2015 model, are you located in Sydney? Would you be willing to let us check out the vehicle and see what we can do?

      Thanks

    Hi Guys
    Installed kit on Hilux 2012 and all well for two weeks
    Now camera only works when it feels like it, all normal when working and then won’t work for a few hours and then starts working normally again. Was intermittent at first now more frequently not working.
    Any tips as to what to look for ?

    • Daniel Gardener Author
      Daniel Gardener January 27, 2016

      Hi Glen,

      This could be two things, check the connection of the red wire up behind the stereo and if this connection is solid and biting through to metal correctly then we would suggest the issue is the image sensor in the camera and we can send you a replacement under warranty.

      Please let us know what you find.

    Daniel,

    I have similar problem with 2014 Toyota Hilux Workmate, first few months trouble free then camera worked occasionally, then started flashing on/off when working. Next step was not at all but screen changed, removed stereo to check soldered power connection, good 12.3 Volts. Put back together now screen doesn’t even change. Checked all plugs secure, still no change. Help please.

      Hi Murray,

      I would check the signal from the front to rear. If you require we can send you a replacement cable for testing. It could be a break in the line due to rubbing or use once you have been using the car.

      Please give us a call if you require this.

      Thanks

    Hi daniel
    Have not heard from you re my reply 3 Feb 16, camera still only works when it wants to, connections all fine, works fine when working. No sequence to working/not working, very random (and annoying)

    Regards Glen

      Daniel Gardener February 17, 2016

      Glen,

      I do apologise we do not always monitor the comments on our website.

      As for an issue with the camera working sometimes, I will arrange to give you a call to fault find the issue with you as I presume this was something you installed yourself so we need to rule out installation faults firstly. Then if all else fails I can arrange to have a replacement shipped to you.

      So fastest solution is to first confirm the connections are correct and solid.

      Thank you.

    Hey Daniel,

    I have a 2008 Hilux SR5 and want to put a reversing camera / sat nav radio in. I’m an electrician and would like to do myself if not to hard. Can you recommend a specific unit to install?

    I’m in Darwin also so hard to find good help..

    Regards
    Tim

    Hi Guys
    I have one of your reverse cameras on my hilux and it’s brilliant. was wondering if you could provide a wiring diagram so I can use the camera ‘on demand’ as well as when in reverse.

    Thanks in advance

    Do you have a reverse camera to suit a 120 Prado with gps?

  19. Thomas April 9, 2017

    So I have the stock Toyota reverse camera and head unit installed in my 2014 hilux but I can’t find a way to put a switch into the unit so I can turn the camera on without being in reverse. The automatic transmission seems to be triggering the camera through the head unit as there is no cable into the tail light. The camera has a constant 6v red wire and three other wires but the other three show no signs of power when put in reverse. So I can’t find the cameras trigger? Do I need to buy your camera as to have a better wiring system?

    • Daniel Gardener Author
      Daniel Gardener April 9, 2017

      What you need to do is test the other plug in the back of the head unit, there is a plug with a tonne of wires in it and one of them is the reverse light trigger input on for the stereo. You need to test for this it will be positive when the car is in reverse, cut the wire, insert a diode so you don’t feed the reverse lights when you trigger it. Then do a relay to switch it on when you want.
