Backup camera help

I just got the pioneer avh-x5500bhs and a backup cam. I am miffed on how to hook into reverse. I have a purple/black stripe wire from the head unit marked reverse gear but no clue where to hook it. 2007 manual trans if that helps

Do a search and you'll find pictures of where to hook up the reverse signal wire. On the 6-speed manual, the signal will just be when the back-up lights turn on and if I remember correctly from doing my stereo install a couple of months ago the wire that you have to tap into is down on the footwell.

This wire probably wants the + from your reverse light. I did an Alpine install in a GMC and I ran a power wire from the reverse + going to the tail light assembly up to the Alpine's reverse wire. I supplied power to his aftermarket camera at the same point by the tail light assembly so that it is not powered on all of the time.
