    So I had a member on the Prius FB group tell me that he used this camera + this harness in his 13' II, which is exactly what I have. I've gone through the multiple threads on here regarding aftermarket install, but have yet to come across any posts with someone using this harness. I've ran all the wires from the back to the front, but yet no luck at getting a feed. If anyone has used this harness successfully, some help would be appreciated.

    One year later, and still trying to figure this out. If anyone has used the harness successfully, please help.

    Your links are dead. Your harness is discontinued

    You want to install an aftermarket camera with a factory HU? Your factory HU has a navigation screen Did you contact Metra?? At least one post
    er on Amazon said they were shipped the wrong item it had the wrong plug.

    Metra now has several different harness for backup camera integration. I can't find one which works for your car. You might contact them.
    At lease one of the Toyota units sometimes requires adding a pin and connection to factory harness.
    This a cut and paste from one of the instructions
    , not sure if if applies to your car.
    The following (2) steps are only required if
    a wire is not present in the factory harness.
    • If a wire is not present in pin-2 of the 28-
    pin connector of the factory radio, unplug
    the connector, then insert the metal pin
    of the loose Green/Purple wire into it.
    Connect the harness back into the radio.
    • Connect the other end of the loose
    Green/Purple wire to the reverse
    wire of the vehicle.
