I know this isn't the answer you want, but a nice Android Auto/Apple CarPlay double-DIN touchscreen is the way to go. You get Google Maps GPS (which is always up-to-date), and any reverse camera you want will be supported by the screen. Please don't put/stick anything ON the Supra's dash...it will look like the afterthought that it is. And don't block your windshield with any other junk.

I second getting a better headunit with Android Auto/CarPlay. I'm looking around for one as well, and plan on grabbing one that has capabilities for a reverse camera as well.

My OEM JDM 2Din doesn't even work, so I have a phone mount stickied to the windshield with a 3M strip since the suction cup is iffy, and I hate the way it looks. Please don't clutter the dash lol

There's an excellent recent thread on these here: Double din
Yeah, I was looking through that for ideas.

The newer Sony HUs don't seem to have the hard volume knob that I'd like to have, even though the XAVs are what I was favoring. I spent like an hour browsing through Crutchfield, but what worries me is dropping the cash on a new HU and running into issues with it. Due to being stationed overseas (wife is army and we're in Korea), it's a huge PITA to get stuff shipped around.

The Sony XAV-AX1000 is still available and has the volume knob. You might still be able to find some XAV-AX200 units also.
