Where do I have to connect the reverse wire coming from my head unit (AVIC d3) on the FJ's wiring in order to make it so the camera comes on automatically when I reverse?

I don't think I'll need the camera full time, but is there a way to set the camera up so it comes on when I'm in reverse and when I want to access the image through the menu?

Thanks in advance!

You will find the info for the reverse wire in this thread. You may also find the info on how to wire it so you can turn it on anytime in that thread also. Good luck!! :roller:

I'm not sure how pioneer does it, but with kenwood, you hook the power for the camera to an acc power source and ground. the head unit has a reverse wire in the harness that you connect to the fj reverse wire and the head unit does the switching automatically, or it can be done manually in the menu allowing you to see the image when not in reverse.
