Sorry started a new thread for the Infotainment system


I finally decided to pull my unit to see what I have. See the pics attached. I am trying to cross reference this to the 86 and iM units that have the back up camera and Nav in the display.


Was easy to get out, started pulling the trim from the lower right and it came right out.


AVH-2558zt
PT546-1C182


The hunt is on to see if I can get the back up camera on this unit and off my mirror.

Will I found a little more information. It appears it will cost big bucks to add the GPS/NAV. You have to add a external module to the display unit. See attached link.


See prices from $550 to $750, all indications this should work. I am waiting on responses from both Pioneer(Thailand) and Harman(Germany) on this unit.


This is killing me, I am going to spend the $15 with TIS and get the wiring diagrams for both the Scion FR-S and the C-HR. I am waiting a call from my dealer to make sure the C-HR is loaded before I do. Once I know the camera pins we can move forward.


I have been looking at aftermarket units, but nothing so far that is plug and play.

Awesome info! Thanx a lot! So the $600 upgrade utilizes the same head unit but just adds a peripheral device? Keep up the sleuthing for me please. You've done much more than I have been able to achieve!

daOne,was there any cutting and splicing or were you able to get adapter harness to make this work. Your 86 already had a backup camera correct. I just check TIS and it is showing a 24 pin connector but noting like it is showing for the iM. both the iM and C-HR are showing the connector part number. your does not. that is strange.


could you post some pics of what you pulled and did you take any of the installation.


My project, I have the drawings I need. Issue I am having is finding the connectors. I can get them at the dealer but the **** pins must be made of gold, $13 bucks for 1 pin with about a 1 foot piece of wire on it. not doing that. will keep digging will post when I have everything together and I know it will work.

wasnt concerned with the rear camera since mine has it on the rear view but i purchased the following pieces,

Metra 95-8202 — Kit (snug fit but covers the whole)
PAC RP4.2-TY11 — Wiring Harness, Steering Wheel Control, Radio Replacement Module
Metra 40-LX11 — Antenna Adapter
Metra AX-TOYUSB —

sorry no pics of removal or installation.

C-hr with back up camera on display

TOYOTA C-HR BACKUP CAMERA ON DISPLAY UNIT
The REV trigger wire is already connected in the 28 pinconnector pin 2.
After connecting to you display your rear view mirror willstill try to display the camera than go blank. Once I find a male connector I planon having both connected.
I routed the RCA cable along the passenger side, take youclove box out for access behind that. On the back hatch the rubber boot on theright is where I ran the cable thru as there was nothing in it, you need totake the buttons out of the head liner to get access. The trim pops right onthe hatch.
This link will show how to take the display out, along withother cool item.

Would like more info on the back up display in the radio.
I would like to have it in the radio display and NOT in the mirror.

I'd like to ask if anyone has considered an aftermarket (Alpine or Sony) head unit that is Apple CarPlay compatible, which thereby brings the NAV right to the screen via your iPhone? I've looked at 4 different units, and I am close to making a decision... part of the problem is that electronics manufacturers seem to be behind in terms of knowledge of the C-HR, but if you search for units that work with the Toyota iM or 86, our head units are apparently identical in specs/size. I'll be happy to keep anyone updated on my progress... I'm fine with the rearview mirror back-up cam, so that's not ever been an issue for me, but NAV is very important.

I'm hoping that someone makes a kit to put an aftermarket head unit in these cars. I've got almost a full stereo in my attic waiting to be installed in something. The head unit is still in my fiancee's Edge for now.
