Default Adding an aftermarket touch screen but also keeping my touch controls for climate etc

SO, I have the amplifier adapter for my RX400h with factory nav/ mark lev. this adapter one has one plug for the main pigtail. when I unplug the middle harness on the radio the touch screen goes black and I can no longer control my climate, info, map etc. I don't care about the sound beeping or the nav telling me where to go.. I would just like to be able to use my controls.

I've seen this done on other posts but no one mentions how they made the factory touch continue to be functional. do I have to remove the part that plugs into that middle harness from the radio and stuff it in the dash somewhere to hide it just so it continues to work? is there a jumper wire that needs to be hooked up?

Please help I have a 900 mile trip coming up and i'd like to be able to play videos for my two kids, to keep me sane!

Be sure to read all the way through this as there is a writeup from 1koolfella who has a setup with the existing NAV.

Much easier for those without the Lexus NAV system. With the NAV you need to have the correct harness to keep everything running.

So, there's actually a work around for cheap people like me that don't want to spend $400 on the rx-82 adapter..

so, check this out.. I was going to my friends house to get my touch screen back out of my old scion and I was bringing him the stock scion radio.. So i was like I think ill hook this up to see if the nav, climate etc works on my lex... IT DID.. so instead of pulling my expensive as hell Lexus stock head unit apart I pulled the cheap scion head apart (I found some for $50 on Craigslist) and I am going to be using that instead and mount it in my glove box or hide it under the gear shifter if there's enough room!

This is the scion xb unit I took apart and tested! I will be installing it all tomorrow with headrest monitors.
