    Hmm . . . none as yet, that's why i'm here . . .
    Hey Y'all, suggestions/recommendations for a rear view camera.
    I'm not replacing stereo. Dash mount or replace rear view mirror are my thoughts.
    Possible combo of navi and camera.
    Bring it on . . . thanks

    So, no one, east to west, north to south has installed an after market rear view camera in their Taco! Strange.

    I have an el cheapo purchased on Amazon. Wires into the rear taillight to power up in reverse. No good place to mount the 4" screen except next to the current rear view mirror, and it feels like a Pep Boys special. Picture breaks up constantly and night vision is terrible. Only slightly better than nothing. Would not recommend

    If you're planning on keeping the OE stereo you might consider what I installed in my truck. The provided link was right after I did the install. Since then I've moved the camera inside my cap to get a better view of my trailer when hauling my bikes. As for "navi" which I'm assuming means navigation and you're not looking to replace your OE radion you might want to consider the A-pillar mod. I used this mod to mount my Garmin GPS and found it to be very useful.

    There’s multiple smaller screens for this use, I personally don’t have an experience with them since I used a aft head unit. I used this camera though that’s built into the tailgate handle like toyota did it from the factory. Looks mint imo, I’ve had it for probably 4ish years now and now problems.
