    My Pioneer AVIC-F900BT arrived and I am about to do the installation. Does anyone know how to hook into the factory rear view camera with an aftermarket head unit?

    Thanks for link.

    Am I reading this wrong did you guys tap into the wire up by the mirror?

    I hope I am missing something here. With the raido in the dash, I was looking to find it before the mirror.

    I don't want to have to run more wire than I have too and I am too lazyso I will wait until I can figure out the correct wire.

    Does the video input switch over to the camera before the boot is finished?

    J/c where did you mount the gps antenna?
