Sure, Right at the front of this post is the link to the Dynavin thread, post #4.
And There is a few on Ebay, I was not sure about putting in a link, as some people do not like the ebay promotion, and better to do your own search using the camera details i have given, to avoid the larger version camera, that will not fit.

Dude read the post again if you have time. you will see all the details on the camera activation. rear camera is powered by the reverse light, as in post #4 .... here.
the trigger to activate the TV screen is via the new dash switch. on/off/on.
when I put it in reverse, I flick the switch to the right. and when going forward to park, I flick the switch to the left. when switched left, the extra internal wire in the AV cable gives power to the front camera too. very simple.
And not needed all the time, of course. when in reverse and switched forward... there is a fight to decide which signal to display, but no damage, just 2 AV signals at once, but why do that?
The cameras are pre set, flipped image, but not a problem at close range,
and I guess you clean your car occasionally so take the time to wash the lens.

2000 328ci facelift, Quaffe LSD, DBA rotors, Braided lines, Short shift, Coilovers, whiteline swaybars, 19" upfront, 20" outback. TMS brace kit and powerflex all round.
