Constant power for reversing camera

Hi guys,

Just finished installing my reverse camera from Mr Bozo and all working well.

I currently have a pioneer double din (avh-5500bt), and want to try and find a constant 12v power source for the camera so I can manually switch to it when I wish.

I know I could route from the rear 12v, but haven't a clue how to get to the back of it and then route it successfully to the back of the camera.

Wondered if there was a nifty trick somewhere along the lines. My whole rear trim on the boot is still off at the moment to make things easier.

Any ideas?

Thanks mate,

Don't think I'll end up doing it now. haven't got a solder iron for starters and don't fancy splicing the cables at the mo. Was hoping there might be an easier solution.
