    Well I got this all* set up and it sure does look pretty, but I have run into a few issues.

    There's some cables that didn't have a home on the back of the new unit and I figure I need adapters for (but no idea where to get them).

    The only things that don't work are;
    1. Rear camera doesn't show when in reverse
    2. GPS does not function (standalone with unit, seeming to not use built-in GPS from car)
    3. Phone is not recognized via USB (for screen mirroring, etc)
    I figure these are all related to the cables that are not connected at the moment. On top of that, I get a warning on the dash about checking the hybrid system due to some errors (again, likely due to the cables not being connected).

    Any chance anyone knows where to get adapters? Hell, maybe can even point out which cables are which? I can't find adapters since I only think to type in "prius gps adapter" type of searches (which don't turn up much in terms of real results).

    Making headway. USB is working at least.

    Now my main concern is the Rear camera. I got this product (AX-TOYCAM1-6V, instructions available on their main product page since I can't post links yet) and when I pop it into reverse it doesn't show the cam. I am getting the idea that I do need to connect a cable to some power for the camera, based on the directions from the product website. Not sure if I also need to connect the "radio to vehicle reverse signal", since I hadn't heard of that need before, but I worry I may need to do that as well.

    Below is an image of the connections and the two that are not seeming to work (rear cam and GPS).

    The biggest issue is that I wouldn't know which cable from the adapter is for power and where to then put that to get the power from.

    I have a similar looking head unit and was curious about hooking it up. Was it a pain to get all the wiring sorted out? Did your car have factory JBL?

    I'm not even sure what JBL is... but if it came stock with a 2012, then yes. I ended up not having all the right wires and couldn't connect stuff like the rear camera, so I ended up taking it to Best Buy and they got it all sorted out for me for $40 (which was awesome, IMO). So I did get it done for the most part, but getting the final bits done was beyond what I was capable with given my tools an knowledge.
