    Does anyone know where to get push buttons for use where the blanks on the factory radio are? Going to be adding a front camera and doing the rear anytime mod and would rather run the buttons up there if I can. Have been trying to search and keep coming up empty.

    Doubt you can buy them separately.(but I've been wrong before).
    This mod will also involve disassembling the entire radio faceplate. Not hard, but risky and can be done. Best bet is to find a donor/junk radio and cannibalize it for the buttons. Or drill a hole and mount a low profile mini rocker switch in the spot. Great location for anytime mod.

    there was a post a while back, that i can not find, on a front camera and the end result was a new spot on the screen shows up as "AUX" and it turns on the front camera. the post listed all the parts and a pic of the screen with the aux button active, i printed out all the parts needed then contacted my car stereo shop the final cost including the parts i would buy would be almost $500. so i passed. i still have the print out of the parts but i can't find the old post.

    Price aside that sounds awesome. I'll have to see about looking into that

    this was the main part for the wiring plus a camera also needed. i have searched for the link maybe someone else here can find it. the major part of the cost was labor since i do not feel comfortable monkeying with that stuff.
