More details on the Crux RVCTY-71 Backup Camera System
Sightline Series Rear-View Camera: The Sightline series RVCTY-71 rear-view camera by Crux has been specifically designed for select 2012-2014 Toyota vehicles that feature a factory in-dash radio with integrated video monitor. Now you can use your vehicle's factory radio to see what's behind you when backing up. The RVCTY-71 comes with the necessary harnesses and cables to connect the rear-view camera to your Toyota vehicle's factory system.
Note: The RVCTY-71 rear-view camera is meant as a back-up aid only; never solely rely on the rear-view camera when backing-up. In addition to using the rear-view camera, always look behind you to make sure everything is clear when backing up your vehicle.
Vehicle Compatibility: The Sightline series RVCTY-71 rear-view camera is compatible with the following 2012-2014 Toyota vehicles that feature a factory radio with integrated video monitor (as of 8/14/14).
Automatic Rear-View Switching: The RVCTY-71 features automatic rear-view switching. This means that when you place your vehicle in reverse gear, your factory radio's monitor will automatically switch over to the rear-view camera so you can see what's behind you immediately. There are no hardwire connections to make for this feature, the reverse wire is integrated in to the included plug-in vehicle harness.
Park Assist Lines: The rear-view camera provides parking assist lines on the screen of your vehicle's in-dash factory radio. These parking lines are there to assist you when backing up into a parking space. There are two vertical lines which help you judge the left and right edges of the parking space and your vehicle. There are also 3 color-coded horizontal lines that are used to distinguish how close you are getting to the end of the parking spot - Yellow (Clear), Purple (Getting Close), Red (Very Close). The park assist lines can be removed (see instructions).
Integrated Mounting Collar: You will need to drill a 18.5mm (5/8") hole in your vehicle's rear exterior panel using the supplied hole saw drill-bit (drill not included). The rear-view camera mounts in this opening and features a threaded mounting collar which holds the camera in place. There is also a self-adhesive double-side weather strip which mounts between the vehicle and the camera to protect against any water leaks.
Power/Ground & Signal Connections: The rear-view camera features an attached 27.5' power/video cable which plugs into the included 20" power/signal cable via a proprietary connector. The 20' power/video cable then plugs and hardwires into the included 12" T-harness via composite video and power/ground wire leads. The T-harness then plugs into the 16-pin port on the back of your factory radio; you will need to remove the existing 16-pin factory harness from the radio and plug in the RVCTY-71's T-harness in between the factory radio harness and the radio's 16-pin plug.
