    Just got an 09 prerunner sr5 package and am wondering if I could install the compass and outside temperature thermometer in my overhead counsel? Has anyone done this?

    Thanks

    you can do it, but it will cost you $700+ for the overhead console.

    thanks but the 09 has a rear camera and the link only showed 1 mirror with the camera monitor but did not have the compass or the temp.

    I would imagine that you could get an external gadget that would do the same, just don't plan on the overhead console.

    Like lsocoee said, I just added a small accurite wireless temp display from wally world. Shows inside/outside temp. For the compass I added one usually used for boating. Total cost for both was less than $30.

    Sometimes they do pop up here in the buy/sell section & you'll need to add a temp sensor & have the grey interior. They don't come in tan/taupe I was told.
