Question Reverse Sensor Wire (rear view camera install)

Purchased: Kenwood DNX890HD
Question: Where do I connect the Reverse Sensor Wire to?

Installing head unit stated above in my 99 GT (Ill post how I mounted it once I finish the install). I am going to install a CMOS-310 (Kenwood rear view camera) after I finish the double din radio bezel swap and securely mount the new head unit in the cleanest (most factory like) way possible.

Instructions say to "connect to vehicle's reverse lamp harness". After trying to figure out what the hell that is and where it is, all I came up with was people saying they ran wire to their reverse light bulb..? Sounds like madness!

Who has done this or know what a professional installation would do to install this.

Thanks for your help guys

I just helped install a reverse cam in an Xterra. Connect to the hot wire for reverse light. I don't have a mustang wiring diagram handy, so there could be a place to splice closer to the head unit like the reverse gear sensor near the shifter, but since you have to run the video signal from the back anyway I would run them together.
