You might be surprised how cheap you can buy a used radio for your Camry on ebay and make it worth the switchout since you'll likely have to pull the unit in the first place. I have a factory '99 Corolla cassette radio I just pulled to do the aftermarket thing with and I'd let it go for $20 and whatever USPS charge there is for the small flat rate box. Not sure if they'll interchange, but I could check with my neighbor as she has a 94 Camry.
Our 96 Subaru Legacy was easy to upgrade with their later model radio/ 6 CD changer(DIN 2). Found three of them either on NASIOC.com or ebay for $50 each. Maybe the TN for sale page might be as kind to you.
The switchout for the Corolla required a stiff putty knife to GENTLY pry the dash cover off, a Phillips screwdriver, and a ratchet w/8mm socket to remove the brackets from the radio and transfer them to your new unit. The back is pretty much plug and play and installation the reverse of removal.
