You could have answered his question with two words: "Just reverse."KTPhil said:For answer, please see thread on other board.
The Lexus models have had the rear camera since the 2004 models. My wife has an RX330 with backup camera. The vehicle has a "diagnostic" mode in which you can turn on the camera while in DRIVE mode. However, you won't be able to switch back and forth to the other MFD display screens(NAV, AC, etc.). Again the camera has been a feature since the 2004 models, and Lexus has yet to offer an "contstant on" feature. I highly doubt Toyota will offer a "constant on" option in the near future or ever. A "hacK" is more likely.paulalouise said:thank you! that was very clear. You are right, I had no idea what the first person was telling me. Disappointing though. It would have been wonderful to be able to use the camera as an adjunct rearview mirror. Maybe I should wait till 2007?
Probably because the three forums aren't signifigently different.The basic problem is that the original question was asked on every Prius forum on this site, so the answers could be dispersed and not all in the same thread...
True. But that doesn't excuse the curt response given to the OP. I was reading the Technical Forum and saw that un-helpful response. There are 16 forums on Priusonline, so a simple "See the reply in the ______ forum" would have been more courteous and helpful. Additionally, several posters refer you to the PriusChat for some answers.The system seems to be working well, and just gets overlooked occassionally.
