#1

Sorry mate but I haven't a clue what it is your trying to tell me. But thanks anyway. They maid it sound like an easy job it probably is for most but these things go way over my head. 
I need a proper detailed diagram or video the ones I've seen on utube r somewhat OK but I seem to have to many wires with mine to the onesame I've been watching

similar camera I have, the wireless part is the same, and yes my supplied instructions with the camera were useless. ive fitted a bit of ice over the years so I found it straight forward. if your not sure get someone to fit it for you, you will also probably need to wire you headunit up to the reverse wiring too so when you select reverse it comes up on the screen automatically

Most will tap into the reverse light wire at the rear lamp cluster and run a cable to the front for the monitor, or you can find the reverse lamp wire on the sill or at the front corner behind the glove box (from memory it goes via bsi to rear of the car) if I'm honest it's a probably the easiest thing to wire on a car so I'd advise paying someone to wire it for you, run the power lead for the camera to the reversing lamp cluster area and the monitor leads to the passenger footwell, then just get someone to find and solder the power leads in which should be under 30 quid I'd think, I'd prob charge 20 quid for that job as a self employed auto electrician/mechanic because it's a relatively easy job!
