Not as simple as wiring in a camera I'm afraid. Head unit needs to be able to support it and IIRC the correct parking sensor ECU.

OK,thanks I knew it would not be simple for me. It was just a thought that's all.

There is an aftermarket addon which plugs between the head unit and display and simply takes over the display when you put the car in reverse.

Yes at over £200 for one and no price on the other, and somewhere to fit the suitcase sized interface.... :rofl2:

There has been a comprehensive post about this here, were we looked at options (including the link referenced above)

As I said, there are certain hardware revisions of the MyWay unit and the later e-MyWay which need to have the integrated video chip inside the unit as well as the correct ECU if you are going for an OEM solution. The issue you have is output to the head unit and compatibility, so if you are really determined, then why not consider an over rear view mirror reversing camera solution that ACE did here - a much cheaper alternative and looks better, without interfering with your existing system:
