    Just a case of fitting camera in the back, screen in the front and finding a route for the cable. When I installed my reverse parking sensors, I routed the cable from the back light unit, to behind the rear seat, then down under the carpet and up inside the centre hand rest, along bottom of drivers seat then tucket it into plastics by the clutch pedal. Just got to get the wire and see what you can do, it gets harder depending on how much you want to hide the wire.

    If you wanted the camera on all the time when you start the car, maybe tap into an ignition or 12v supply cable somewhere, if you wanted it on only when you put the car in reverse, you would need to tap into the cable feeding the reverse light.

    Vehicle : Saab 9-3 Aero

    Trim : Aero

    Engine : 2.8 Turbo V6

    Year : 2006

    Mileage : 62000

    I fitted my reverse camera a month back to my pioneer double din headunit. The camera is a replacement rear numberplate light really clever lol.
    I had to run 2 wires from the headunit to the boot (1 is av in and the other a remote wire)
    AV to the camera
    Remote wire to reverse + on rear light
    Then camera power to reverse + on rear light
    Camera negative to ground on rear light.

    I ran the wires from HU behind glovebox, down by passengar feet then tucked them away down the plastic trim to the rear seats, then under seat, then inside the side void (where fuse box is) to rear light....Easy peasy took me about 30 mins to do. There is a rubber gromit in the boot to feed the camera wires through from outside to inside.

    As your west mids buddy get bits you need and come to our Fix it day on 26th Feb at mine in Telford and I will give you a hand or if your not to far from me I will come and show you the way lol.
