    Finally got my front camera installed, here u can see pictures of it. Ill leave a diagram for it, ive taken power from a few 10A fuses in the engine room and interior fuse box to make it happen. They turn on and off when the car does so yea, thats good. best part is that ive used a 2.4 ghz sender and receiver from my camera to the monitor inside, so no cable needed thru the fire wall.

    I don't really recommend this camera, since u have to drill a hole for it in the front bumper. But yea, if u want to use it here u go. Mine just got strong double sided tape.

    Flat Fuse Holder for the Prius fuses (this is the one that definitely fits the fuse box, other versions might not).

    Also find two 10A fuses (one extra for the camera in the engine room fuse box and another extra for the one in the interior fuse box).

    Some black and red wires.

    Wire cutters

    Wire rings that fits the bolts/screws in the car (both of the bolts for the negative wires in the engine room and interior is the same size)
