    Has anyone setup a tablet to view front and rear cameras? Would like to use a 10” tablet for better GPS view along with capability of selecting either front or rear camera on the bigger screen.

    Well thanks for the heads-up on what NOT to try o_O. Should you find something that actually works please re-post. Seems like such a technically simple task but my research has not really been very productive. I don't care for the puny little screen that comes OEM with the '19 4runner. I've even considered upgrading the head unit which is a little bigger (at quite a cost) but not as big as a 10" tablet. I'm after a super high resolution, 10.1" lightweight android tablet with GPS and the capability of inputting live camera feed from a camera - front or rear. Doubtful I'll find a tablet that allow for multiple camera inputs so I'll just set up a splitter switch that can direct one or the other camera feeds to the tablet through the OTG USB-c tablet input (at least that's my "theory"). The tablet would be pretty much dedicated to just GPS and camera views...

    How and where do you plan to mount that? That’s a big screen.

    I've got a plan... If it works out I'll post some pics. I've got to come up with an idea for a solid mounting - maybe a heavy duty cup holder mount with additional horizontal support but before I cross that bridge I have to know that I can get a live feed from the cameras into the tablet..
