Really, I just got sick and tired of hearing you bitch and moan about it all the time.

But, glad to hear it worked out for you.
Now I have to invent something to complain out though.

You can still complain about the rear-view camera. So, there's that. I wonder if there's a way to SPLIT the signal so that you can see it in the mirror AND on the head unit display. If only I had all of those features in my car, then I could test it. Maybe @oddrelic will give it a shot and can figure it out.

I can live without the camera. Now that the speakers work properly again the mirror shakes to much to see anything in it anyway.

i don't really think there's going to be an easy way for that. a lot of vehicles now use a 6v camera, and sometimes the mirrors provide that power. so all of the wiring(power, video, and reverse signal) would need to be ran down from the mirror to the radio, as well as make up an adapter, with integral voltage regulator, none of which have definitive manuals for the connections.

i just did the backwards version of that on my tacoma(aftermarket radio didn't support backup camera that the factory radio did, changed mirror for a video version). took me about 2 months with covid delays and shipping to get all the right parts, and really about 3 saturdays of work to get in and working.

That is a terrific write up on how to get the amp working!

As I recall, in another thread one of the posters mentioned that the new head unit just works with his old backup camera. I'd personally be happy just switching from the mirror to the head unit, that should just be a matter of running down which wire it is and what pin it needs to feed.
