Question Rear-view camera independent switch

Intro:
Hey all, I have a 2014 FJ and I was driving around and some guy stopped right behind me and I almost thought he had hit me, but I couldn't tell. I thought to put it in reverse and see in the back-up camera, but I didn't want to look like I was gonna back into him. This got me thinking...

Question:
Does anyone know how to wire a switch into the existing back-up camera wiring making it so that I could get it to come on whenever I flip the switch as well as whenever I shift into reverse?

Comments:
I've been looking around for a while now and haven't found anyone talking about this, but if you know of a thread, please direct me there.
Also, any knowledge on the stock wiring (anyone have a shop manual for a 2010-2014 they're willing to share ) and how it would affect this mod would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Re: Rear-view camera independent switch

would be great if it can be done. I did this on my tundra as a part of PKG that unlocked factory navigation while moving and made rear camera active by pushing a button at anytime.

Thanks a ton! I guess I just couldn't get the right combination of words.
