    There should be a trigger wire that you connect to the reverse light circuit so that it automatically comes on when selecting reverse gear.

    i have a double din dvd headunit with reversing camera, there are two cables that need to go from the camera to the hu, 1 video cable (usually yellow) and a input signal cable (in my case purple with white tracer) then 2 more cables from the camera for power and earth, i connected these to the reversing lamp so the camera is only on when in reverse however there is a option on my hu to view the rearview even when going forward (for keeping an eye on a caravan or trailer i assume) to use this i would have had to wire the camera cables into a ignition source (like the hu ignition live)
