12V on reverse in dash / front - where?

Hi all DIY installers.
I'm fitting an aftermarket reverse camera and screen.
Need +12v on reverse to activate screen "auto on + switch to camera" near front console.
Any advise where to get it? In which wire loom it can be?
Drivers side near fuse box or passengers side?

sent from SGS.

There is possibly a switch near the gearstick to turn or reversing light. Some cars have it on the stick, other on the selector....not sure about the Civ

Ages ago, the reversing switch was mounted on the gearbox, I think this was purely an earth switch that when reverse was selected a circuit was made.
