Need help: Avin Avant Wireless Backup Camera!

So, this is my first head unit replacement attempt. While Avin's site is pretty good at the order step, their DIY guides are near awful, in that they are combining multiple guides created by other people, sometimes for other brands altogether.

So, I ordered the Wireless backup camera components on their site. It comes with both the actual camera license plate light replacement (which I found out doesn't even fit the vert), and the wireless receiver and transmitter.

I am trying to figure out the best way to wire this configuration with the Avant 4.

My existing unit is OEM, with NO Nav system.

I have both the BUS modules,the IBUS and the other one that I think translates steering wheel commands into instructions for the unit....I read this unit has the Reverse trigger embedded into it....but I also read that you need to connect the Blue Wire from the wireless receiver into the reverse wire that is pink...

Argh!!

Okay, that was a a good piece of info... I was curious whether to use the main harness or the wire attachment...
