    Default Reversing camera

    Hi I have a pioneer avh-x5700dab already fitted in my car. I've bought the pioneer nd-bc8 reverse camera. How to I wire the black and red wires so camera comes on when I select on head unit, and automatically comes on when I put car in reverse? Thanks

    Normally you hook up the electrics to the the reverse light dependant on camera ect.

    So you can either have it wired so camera has power constantly , but you will have to power from a wire with constant power or you can use the reverse light and have the camera only available when in reverse.

    There is quite a good video on youtube, i think it was this one i watched.

    So I can just splice the red into positive on reverse lights and use black as ground? Will the camera come on automatically when I put car in reverse then?
