    Camera monitor repair Prado 150 VX

    Hello,

    I have a 2012 Prado 150 VX and the reverse monitor was broken recently. May or may not have been the nose of a surfboard...
    The garage want $2k for a new unit which seems ridiculous.
    I prefer to keep it in original condition, though am open to an upgrade if it is noting too wacky.
    If anyone has had a similar problem or has a suggestion on where parts might sensibly be sourced I am all ears.

    (On another note, it just had the service recall upgrade on the traction control and drives like a new car...! Safer and more fun.)

    Thanks in advance!

    If you have the option of paying 2k, is it possible to replace the downstairs unit with a great aftermarket unit and use the upstairs as storage or vice-versa?

    These units are sometimes discarded when fitting an aftermarkets GPS/CD/radio unit. There are their are three options. Put a post on here asking for a the unit as once its has replaced it has little value. Send a PM to those that have discarded their units with this upgrade. Also find out who in your area sells and fits these units and ask if they can obtain one for you.

    Thank you! sorry for the slow reply. like half a year! I gave up but need to get to the bottom of this now. Cannot believe it is almost a year... So if anyone has or knows of a head unit screen that has been replaced I am interested to buy. I will seek elsewhere, though this is hard as nobody seems to have them.
