    Hi everyone,

    I would like to add a Front multi view Alpine camera on my Prius 2013 (I have already Rear Camera). It has the head unit Toyota Touch and Go, and I believe that the hardware is the same that Toyota Entune.

    I want to know if it exists a Video converter for Toyota Entune, so I can switch the screen of Head unit to view Front camera?

    Help please!

    Thank you

    There are a few companies have some solutions for your need. I've been looking (off and on) for some plug and play solutions for a front camera. Update this thread with your solution you choose!

    Maybe you could put this in-line with the rear back-up camera and instead of connecting the reverse switch trigger wire to the the reverse switch, add your own switch to manually activate the front camera

    There is also this front camera interface solution, but I've never received any responses from BeatSonic on my email inquires on how to install it. I also posted in their forum once for information. I did see that someone with a Scion was able to install this. I'm sure someone with some automotive wiring knowledge could figure it out. Once cool thing about the CS1 is that you can set it up so that it automatically activates during low speed.
