Reversing Camera

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Any advice please?

After 8.5 months, I pick up my storm black manual 86 GTS next week. Yah!

My (rules following) Toyota dealer says they are not allowed to install the reversing camera on the 86 as it is not on the official 86 accessories list, even though it will fit and work. Note that other Toyota dealers are willing to install all sorts of Toyota but non-86 accessories ie wireless tyre monitoring / illuminating floor lights etc.

Subaru have more accessories for the BRZ and are going to install a few non-branded ones on my 86 but won't do the reversing camera as the BRZ sat nav
/ entertainment system is different and they are not sure about compatibility.

Does anyone know if the BRZ reversing camera is compatible with the 86 system?

Or otherwise I'll find a Toyota dealer willing to install a (Camry) reversing camera on my 86.

And why does a Camry have the option for wireless tyre monitoring and not the 86 - ha ha ha

Thanks!

It could be because the dealer isnt covered for that under warranty if it breaks

Reverse camera, as I heard today from Le Mans toyota, should "cross fingers" be standard in newly built 2014 models in the coming month or 2. I pick up mine in July/August. Nifty feature to have, but not essential.
