Rear view camera installed but...

Hello all, i bought some rear view mirror with added monitor, and rear view camera. Somehow i install the rear view mirror, run the cables for the camera all the way in the back, but i am having difficulties finding a rear gear cable so the camera can turn on when the rear gear is engaged.

I would like to run that wire from the front area, down to the fuse box or something else, to get it activated when the rear gear is in ignition, instead of running the rear gear ignition cable all the way back to reverse lights...
