    I have a 2011 Tundra double cab TRD 4.6L 4x4. The truck did not come with a back up camera but the camera plug is at the rear above the spare tire. I purchased a used Toyota camera and display mirror on ebay with the intent of plug and play. When installed, no image appears. To test the camera and mirror, I disconnected both, installed it on another 2011 Tundra 5.7L, with no current camera, and worked perfectly. I plugged in the camera on my truck again and laid it in the truck box, and brought it to the dealer for troubleshooting. The mechanics evaluated the problem and said the truck is not wired for a camera. I find that unusual. My truck appears to be wired with the harness in place. With camera and mirror connected, camera placed on the box bed, and tonneau cover installed, tailgate down, when put in reverse, a blue screen appears on the mirror for 3secs and goes out. With tailgate up, camera in complete darkness under tonneau cover, when put in reverse, a black screen with highlighted lines appear and stay appeared. With two scenarios differing, I think there is some sort of signal going through, thus appearing to be wired for a camera. Any help resolving this would be great as the local dealer is no help. Thanks

    Did you resolve this issue? I was going to order a backup camera for a 2011 but saw this, so I'm curious.

    Not quite resolved yet. There are 4 wires going from camera to mirror. I have continuity on 3 of them. I tested the camera and mirror on a 2011 tundra 5.7L and worked perfectly. However mine is a 4.6L. My local toyota dealer is researching to see if the engine size is causing the problem, if not, there must be a connection problem on wire #4. I'm waiting to hear back from the dealer.

    Interesting. Ours is a 5.7. I'd be curious to know what you come up with.

    I'm of no help here, but that's what I'd call "Bird Box" Mode

    This is the one I was looking at purchasing as well. How long have you been waiting?

    Check out Camerasource for the rear camera & mirror if needed. I bought the Gentex mirror with LCD, Homelink, Compass, & Auto Dim with the camera for my 2010. It's all plug & play. You can buy separately. The Camera is great. Call them they can find what you need. I also found the camera tailgate latch for about $22 new on the bay. Works perfect.

    That may be an option too. Where'd you get the camera & mirror?

    Received the same issue on my 5.7L '11 Tundra, the blue screen of death but mine just stopped working randomly... any fixes?
