CRUX (RVCTY-71C) BACKUP CAMERA SYSTEM ADD A REAR-VIEW CAMERA TO YOUR FACTORY RADIO IN SELECT 2012-13 TOYOTA TACOMA VEHICLES

THE BACKUP CAM JUST FOR YOU

Designed specifically for select 2012-13 Toyota Tacoma vehicles, this Crux RVCTY-71C rear-view camera system allows you to integrate backup video into your factory radio. The package includes the rear-view camera and a harness that connects to your factory radio.

Once installed, you'll see a generous, well-lit picture of what's behind you, with a 170-degree wide view and video capture down to 0.2 Lux for night driving. Crux also gives you the option to enable on-screen parking assist lines so you can gauge distance more easily.

Note: This camera is designed to hang upside down for proper picture orientation. If you haven't cut a hole for mounting the camera yet, we recommend plugging the camera into the radio first to confirm how it should be installed.

INSTALLING THIS CAMERA YOURSELF? HERE'S WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW.

What does it do? Unless otherwise noted, a backup camera is only intended for use backing up your vehicle. (If you require a front-view or constant rear-view camera, check for that capability.)

What tools and supplies will I need? A panel tool, a wire cutter/stripper, a soldering iron, and a rosin-core solder with heat shrink tubing are recommended, along with whatever tools are needed to remove the radio from the dash.  

How much wiring is required? Wiring instructions vary from camera to camera. Some cameras have power wiring that can only be connected near the radio. Others let you power the camera at compatible reverse lights. In all cases, the camera must be wired for power and ground, the camera's video output must be connected to the radio/monitor, and the radio/monitor must be connected to a reverse trigger in your vehicle. Some radio replacement interfaces supply a reverse trigger wire for the radio -- using that wire to power your camera will damage the interface.

Will the included video cable be long enough? You'll need to route the camera's video cable from its mounting location outside your vehicle into your vehicle's cabin and all the way to the screen in the dash. This often requires drilling a small hole in your vehicle or filing some metal and or plastic. You'll also need to estimate the length of cable needed to run from the camera to the dash, which will not be a straight shot. Each camera's cable length is listed.
