Connect multimedia in dash player to reverse wire in dash on 2006 f150

I have a 2006 f150 SCREW. I just bought a Valor DTS 660w. the 660 has a reverse wire. I have a Audiovox license plate backup camera.

If I can connect the 660 to the trucks reverse wire, the 660 will switch to rear camera automatically when I put the truck in reverse.

The camera is connected to the reverse wire at the hitch harness. It comes on whenever I put the truck in reverse. W/o connecting the 660 reverse wire to the truck reverse wire, I have to do manual switching on the 660.

Does anyone know where the under the dash reverse wire is located?

Thanks.

I am going to run a wire from my hitch wiring (same reverse wire I used for camera), and follow the camera video feed back to the DTS 660w's brown reverse wire. It should work fine. I'll post results.

Actually the reverse wire is white/green not brown. the brown wire on the 660 is mute.
