That's one of my reasons to want to install it to the nav unit, being able to see it at any time not only while in reverse. The other is that the nav screen is twice the size of the oem one. One of my installers told me that in order to have the camera connected to the Pioneer that I need to buy an aftermarket rear view camera, meaning having 2 cameras in the hatch.you can view the rear camrea anytime without being in reverse.

The AVIC-Z120BT rear camera input is an rca plug. The oem screen have a small connector with a bunch of wires, no rca what so ever.
After a little more research on the topic I found that some guys over the Odyssey forum were looking into displaying their OEM rear view camera into their aftermarket NAV's, since theirs stock location is on the rear view mirror. One of the guys was able to get it done be tapping into two of the wires the Video signal and the ground. He also tapped into the reverse wire in order to be able to display the camera at any time.
Next step for me is to locate the wiring diagram of the small info display on the dash of our Sienna's.
Odyssey Post about the modification:
This pin configuration doesn't match.:headbang:Here you go, much closer to the family than the oddy.
A venza member did it his car. I'm hoping the pin configuration will be the same for the sienna. I'll try it out this weekend:
Hi ldc550,I was able to figure out the wiring on the 2011 Sienna (with the help of this thread!). Here's what worked on my wife's LE:
Pin #3: Reverse Trigger
Pin #14: Video +
Pin #15: Video -
You may want to confirm.
If interested, I can send a picture of the pin-out (from TIS) of the connector that plugs into the multi-display. The color of the wires are:
Pin #3: Black
Pin #14: Black w/Silver Dot
Pin #15: White
Hi randomone,I was going to post some pictures, but it says I cannot post attachments. Not sure why, but in any case, I created a public album with 3 photos. I'm a lousy photographer, using a mediocre camera, with flash because it was dark. So with those disclaimers, here goes:
Could you please post the pictures for the harness? Want to find a pair to make a adapter without change OEM cable...
I did exactly what you described above to hook up the backup camera to my Alpine HU.I am interested in hooking up the factory camera to my avic z130bt but the only wire it has for the backup camera is a single rca cable. Anyone know if I could cut the end off of an old rca cable and solder it to the + and - wires listed above and then plug it into my radio??
The harness for the multi-function (aka TFT) display is right behind the display itself and is relatively short. I'll send you a PM of the connector diagram from TIS website.Hi lcd550,
Thanks for the reply, I found one picture from Internet that someone was working on the Sienna and took out the info LCD and head unit:
Does that info LCD harness looks like the one showing on the picture around the empty LDC info slot?
The hookup is a 3 wire to the Alpine. The RCA is a 2 wire, where V+ is the center conductor, shield is V-. I ran a separate wire for the reverse trigger (using the mating connector) to hook into the Alpine HU. I used t-taps for the 3 wires coming from the factory display.lcd550,
I thought you said it was a 3 wire hookup for your alpine? I am not 100% sure but don't rca cables only have 2 wires? Was your 3rd wire the reverse trigger wire or something? Like I said, I am not 100% sure on any of this so any info you can provide would be helpful.
That is correct :thumbsup: ! I stripped back a fair amount of the sheath/shield of the wire, twisted it together, and soldered it before tapping this wire to the V- of the display.That is kind of what I figured. I taped into the factory wiring there at the LCD to get the reverse trigger for my Pioneer. I looked at an old rca wire. I saw a thin copper wire and then a white sheathed wire. I assume the white sheathed wire is going to be the - on the rca?
