Giraffe (Toyota)

This giraffe is designed for new model year Toyota cars with TSS-P, which is found on the following cars:

  • Toyota RAV-4,
  • Toyota RAV-4 Hybrid,
  • Toyota Prius, Toyota,
  • Corolla, and
  • Lexus RX Hybrid.

It may also work on other cars with the same connector, probably all TSS-P Toyota.

Verified fit on 2017 models.

Older versions have a missing 120 ohm resistor between pins 12 and 13. This is required for Camera Proxy to enable Auto High Beams and stock camera functionality.

About the Giraffe

The Giraffe is responsible for passing through signals to your vehicles existing driver assistance system.

It features small toggle switches that allow you to turn the individual pass-throughs on or off to block the signals. This saves you from having to physically unplug or detach anything from the vehicle to resume using the stock system. It's like unplugging, but better.

It also allows you to optionally proxy the signals through to your Panda. When used with a White Panda you're able to get more signals and access to read from your car's radar.

It also has a NEO compatible fake ethernet port with access to CAN1, CAN2, started detect, +12v, and ground.

A note on the FAKE ethernet port.

DO NOT use this to connect to your laptop or network. It will break stuff.

Where to purchase
