The red wire at the camera end connects to the reverse light circuit (usually at the reverse light).

The red wire at the dash end connects to the dynavins reverse wire.
Thanks! That was what I originally thought, as the fuse box or reverse light circuit connection should turn off or on the camera power, and the other end of the red wire connected to the Dynavin reverse wire will tell the Dynavin whether the reverse camera is on or off. Unfortunately when I first tried it, I rough connected to the fuse and must have got an always-on power source, as I couldn't get the camera to turn off!

Will try to fix that next...
