What do you guys think of the GVN 52 and how hard would it be to install in my 06 Prius? I really like the idea that it uses the existing MFD but how would I install this SOB and is it even feasable? Here is the product specs sheet.

I figure that the backup camera has to plug into something under this huge dash right? I just wonder how hard it would be to toggle between the backup camera and this Nav system? Any help would really be appreciated, and thanks in advance.

Well the touch screen won't work which would really bother me. If I didn't have the factory system and I had to choose, I would probably buy one of their portable units rather than this. They do have touch screen but the screens are quite small.

That it says "Composite video output for compatible displays (NTSC)" seems worrisome. I am doubtful there's anywhere to just plug in an NTSC composite output and get video on the Prius screen, at least not without some expensive or complicated conversion, though I don't know for sure. This GPS thing is mostly meant for cars that have DVD players built in, not for screens like the one in a Prius, I think.

I agree, as I commented in the other duplicate post in the Technical forum.
