Default GX 470 2005 : Questions about BT45-TOY and the BT-TOYR cable

I am going to add the BT45-TOY module to the Lexus with navigation. However, for models with RSE, they recommend an extra cable, the BT-TOYR.
I am wondering if I do not use this cable, I will lose the functionality of DVD player. It does not work anyways, so Its useless. I can probably give it up?
Or will the unit not work at all with without the BT-TOYR cable?

From what I can tell, the cable is necessary. The BT45-TOY is just a module and has no connecting cable, the BT-TOYR is what actually connects the module to the system. I could be wrong though.

You can try installing everything without it and seeing if it works, then just add the cable if there's issues. It only takes a couple minutes to pop out the head unit so it shouldn't be too much of a problem.

Actually it comes with the standard BT-TOY cable, but BT-TOYR cable is for those with RSE. If you use BT-TOY you love the DVD player. I guess I will go with standard cable and document the process with pictures
