    i have a 2012 prius V model 2 (non-JBL), and i bought the following:
    Metra 95-8243B Prius V 2012 dash kit mount: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00IDFAW7U/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Android 10.1" head unit: https://www.ebay.com/itm/10-1Inch-2Din-for-Android-8-1-Quad-Core-Car-Stereo-Radio-Gps-Wifi-Mp5-Player-16G/264422604685

    after opening up my dash, i realize i'm missing adapters that convert my prius V's existing wiring into this android head unit :

    (someone else's photo of their prius C , but my 2012 prius V looks pretty much the same)[​IMG]

    I'm reading that I should be getting the Metra 70-1761 + Antenna Kit. But i'm still confused, because the
    70-1761 kit only has 2 brackets when the existing prius V has like 6 plugs (as above). is there more adapters that I require?

    Thank you for your advice,

    From what I read on your power and speaker adapter, that’s all you get, eg power and four speakers. Not too good since won’t be able to hook up to the factory antennas or steering wheel controls. No rear view camera either. It always helps to include a model of the radio and ideally a pdf of its instructions. You will also lose all the car’s hybrid screens. Here’s a pdf of the 2012 trim 3 system.

    thank you. i dont mind no steering controls or hybrid info, but is there NO way to get connect the existing backup camera connections (like somehow convert it into RCA?) into my head unit?

    Does that head unit even have a RCA video input? That kind of video is analog (sometimes called component or composite) while most Android devices only display digital formats like MP4 or 5. From what I gather you need 6 vdc and Gnd to power the camera and Camera+ and Camera- for the signal. No telling what the resolution or format is on the factory camera. Your new head unit is likely the limiting factor, assuming it has camera inputs. You also have to come up with 6vdc to run it and some mechanism to let the new head unit know you are in reverse. If you are doing this for more audio power I would go for a line input amp driven by the factory head unit and new speakers. Otherwise I might just mount an Ipad or similar on the dash (lots of empty space to the left) and call it good. But to move forward with your idea you might call Crutchfield and ask them how. It may require a different aftermarket head unit and perhaps a 12v to 6v power supply. https://www.crutchfield.com/g_751/Factory-System-Adapters.html?tp=3486. Pic from earlier pdf.
