    My 2008 Prius has a factory backup camera that works well but does not have the guidelines. I have searched for a way to activate them from other threads but the option talked-about in those threads aren't in mine.

    My first question is if I can find a newer camera that mounts the same and has the lines, can I just swap it in?

    Second question, does anyone know of a camera that fits that description?

    Hi Tim, welcome to PriusChat.

    I believe that you need to have the IPA (Intelligent Parking Assist) option in order to have the (dynamic) guidelines. The proximity sensors and the integration with the steering control allow the dynamic guidelines.

    I believe the answer to your question is no. If you wish to have the dynamic guidelines, a better strategy would be to find a Prius with IPA as an option and trade it for your current one.
