Bad instructions,leads to botched in stall

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The instruction are very vague and picture are black and not helpful. Only shows some wiring, not mounting location etc. Tells you to drill hole right next to tail gate handle, not factory spot. Contacted company said to do it different then instructions. Through factory spot. Camera doesn't fit in factory spot. The wiring kit was simple and easy, but that's about it. Thinking of pulling the unit and returning.

Pros: Wiring harness

Cons: Everything else

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Decent considering the cost. I was emailed the wrong instructions (speaker istallation) but I pulled up the video and figured it out. I could have completed the job in less than an hour but I used hand tools instead of powered tools. Overall it does the job. I followed the instructions to a T but have to shim the camera to get the angle I want. Not bad for the price.

Easy to install just doesn't last. Camera failed just outside of the one year warranty so Crutchfield couldn't hep and Crux only offered to sell me another one. Choose a different manufacturer.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Camera electrical connections worked great and were relatively easy to use. Camera so far is working fine. Had to custom make parts to install camera. It would be great if vendor provided a bracket to use.

Pros: So far everything working well. Electrical connections very nice.

Cons: Vendor should provide customized bracket to mount camera or at least have more detail on how it can be mounted.

Features

Sightline Series Rear-View Camera: The Sightline series RVCTY-71c rear-view camera by Crux has been specifically designed for the 2012-2013 Toyota Tacoma that features 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-71c comes with the necessary harnesses and cables to connect the rear-view camera to your Toyota vehicle's factory system.

Note: The RVCTY-71c 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-71c rear-view camera is compatible with the following 2013 Toyota vehicles that feature a factory radio with integrated video monitor (as of 8/14/14).

Toyota Tacoma 2012-2013

Automatic Rear-View Switching: The RVCTY-71c 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).

Integrated Mounting Collar: You will need to drill a 18.5mm (5/8") hole in your vehicle's tailgate (next to the handle) 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 6' power/signal cable and includes a 22" extension harness which plug into each other. The extension harness then plugs into the pre-ran factory camera cable with a 4-pin connector in the tailgate of the vehicle. There is also a 5.5' T-harness which connects between the factory radio harness and the factory radio; this harness includes a 16-pin, 28-pin, 4-pin, and 15-pin connector.
