Pictures from 2016 RX350 F-Sport:


2016 RX350 F-Sport Rear Mirror connector



2016 RX350 F-Sport Rear Mirror wiring 12V, Black/positive, brown/negative

[UPDATE] I stand corrected - the picture above has 12v regardless if the ignition is on or off. I tried different combinations of wires with a voltmeter but wasn’t able to find wires that have 12v only when ignition is on. Had to go back to use the long wire provided with the camera.

Generic plug-and-play solution that adds USB connector to auto-dimming mirror

Found this generic plug-and-play solution that adds USB connector to auto-dimming mirror. Cost is ~USD20 on Amazon but I'm not sure if the connector is used in RX350:
  • -
    Amazon Amazon
    - SimpleUSBPort Mirror to Dashcam Power Adapter (10-pin Type A)
  • -
    Amazon Amazon
    - SimpleUSBPort Mirror to Dashcam Power Adapter (10-pin Type B)

Thanks, I used black for 12v and brown for ground on 2018 Rx 350 F-Sport. Radar still stays on when ignition is off, but uniden R3 turns off itself after an hour if car is parked, based on the GPS. Itís either that or I turn it off and and On manually.
