    I have a last Gen Rav4 that I want to add a reverse camera too. The media unit is stock, and doesnt have a video screen (couple of texts lines only). I have been keepiong an eye on ebay for a used video compliant model from higher spec toyota (and rav4) models that would be an easy change over but none seem to come up. Can anyone suggest another brands option. Speaker sound, gps, other video media are of zero importance. Cheers

      Any unit will work as long as it's the right DIN size (single, double or triple). You just need to buy the fascia kit and adapter specifically for your car.

      Tried a local wreckers? Sounds like you're chasing a Toyota Display Audio unit, you'll need a PZQ60-00522 which has amber illumination, to match your RAV4 30 series' illumination colour. Plug and play for your RAV4 and will require aftermarket camera adapter. Keep in mind your reverse camera image will be offset due to the 30 series RAV4 number plate applique being over the far left of the vehicle.

        Being a wreckers noob, do I call them, email or just rock up..?

          Have a sniff around on the web first to see what vehicles each local wrecker has. Then call and ask if you're allowed to wander through the yards to find one, if they haven't already removed them. Take a philips head (along with flat blade to remove trims) and 10mm socket/extension/ratchet, preferably 1/4 drive with you, in case you need to remove. Works out cheaper this way. They can be picked up as cheap as $100 or so. Other vehicles that used amber illumination 200mm Toyota DA units were ZRE152R Corolla (hatch to mid 2012, sedan to early 2014), NCP90/91R series Yaris (hatch to late 2011, sedan to 2016), and Rukus. These head units were introduced in 2011.

          Avoid any earlier non-touch colour screen that various Toyotas had for the 2009-2011 model years (they are easily identified by numbered buttons vertically on either side of the screen, and the screen is pretty small), these units are crap and have dreadful Bluetooth performance.

    I wonder how this would go up against a Joying unit for around the same price?

    •  

      They're completely different. This is Android Auto compatible versus the Joying units being an actual Android tablet.

      •  

        Well I'll rephrase it then, I wonder which would be a better unit to buy?

          Having had both, it depends on what you want to achieve.

          The Joying unit is slow. Real slow. It has some really annoying quirks which you have to fiddle around with to fix. But it will give you more flexibility to run other apps and possibly spilt screen etc.

          The Pioneer is much more stable but limits you to Android Auto/CarPlay and the apps their compatible with.

          I stuck with the Pioneer. I like to tinker, but the Joying was just too much to get some of the basic bugs sorted.

          Google the Joying Forums and have a read through some of the threads.

          @krouton24:
          Which Joying did you have? I dont find mine slow with 2gb ram and the intel Sofia processor

        •  

          @krouton24: Thanks for your input. I've considered the slowness myself and wondered if the 4gb models had addressed lag. I'll do as you suggested and look into the forums. Thanks again.

    Tempting just for the reverse camera. Any idea how much it would cost to fit this thing?

  •  

    I have this installed in my Hyundai Santa FE 2008, love it very much.

    The unit and reverse camera was installed via Frankies as well.

    Only gripe would be is that the radio doesn't display the song that is playing.

    For Android Auto, do these connect to your phone via Bluetooth and get all the telemetry that way? Like Data,GPS, etc.

    •  

      i think you need wired and bluetooth. there's been only a one or two headunits with only wireless android auto

    •  

      Wired and BT. Not one or the other. When you plug in it also takes the BT connection due to the huge bandwidth requirements.
