    Are you talking about how to have the screen on whenever you want it to be?

    I would think you would need to tap into your camera feed...and then the reverse lights wire for the trigger. Either way, all you are going to get is a duplicate immage. The other thing you could do is wire it so you could turn it on with a switch...rather than only have it on when in reverse. Might be kinda cool :cool:

    Are you positive there is a screen in your mirror? I doubt Toyota and its suppliers would spend extra when they could so easily make a simplified version of the mirror sans screen... but then again who knows!

    There defienitely is a screen. When you hit the "N" button a full menu comes up on the mirror where you can change the color of the temp and stuff like that. But there is also a listing on the "Mirror Menu" for "Rear View Monitor" But with the entune it does nothing.

    I'm at work now but I can vouch for the fact that the entune equipped trucks still come with a mirror with screen.
