I am looking at doing this also. After reading through several threads the method I like the most, as mentioned above, is to...

5 pin 12v relay. ---> the power comes from the white wire that triggers the factory amp on. There is another pin that goes to the camera. Then you connect the trigger wire on the Dynavin or other unit (I believe its green bullet connector the dynavin to the rear tail lights to trigger the screen to automatically switch to the camera in reverse. And if i am correct, you can find the wire needed to trigger it in the black box above the fuse box in the glove compartment. I'm sure about pin on the relay will need to be grounded, however I'm not sure where is ideal...

Can anyone verify or add to this?


Also, for the relay, look on www.partsexpress.com. They are good people and the prices are phenomenal.

My BMW is now second.
