    My 2011 SR5 DC came with the backup cam monitor but no temp/compass. I want a mirror w/backup cam & temp (don't care about the compass). I've searched and found threads about the Gentex but none seem to mention mirrors with the backup cam AND temp display. Does anyone know if there is such an animal? Thanks in advance.

    The temp and compass are displayed in the roof console above the rear view mirror.

    Sorry. On the models that come with the temp/compass. It's displayed up there. I'm not sure about the '12+ but 05-11 didn't come with any option for temp in the mirror. You may have to go completely aftermarket.

    I have a 2012 DC off road with the stock back up cam/ temp/ compass combo in the rear view.

    I believe that there is a thread somewhere on here about getting a 12+ mirror to work on 11-, some searching should find it.

    Your other alternative is to find an overhead console with the temp/comp from an 09-11. You should have the connectors already there to plug that in. The consoles were put into the 09-11 TRDs, pre-09 will not work due to a temp wiring change.

    Only other problem is if you have the tan interior. The tan interior was not available on the TRDs, so all temp/comp overheads are grey.

    The 12/13/14 tacos have the temp display in the mirror. 05-11 tacos have a separate display in the console above the mirror.

    There is a way to get the newer mirror in the older truck, but it's not exactly trivial.
