Edge Insight CTS - Back-up Camera

I added the Insight CTS about a year ago and recently added a back-up camera.

It seems to switch back & forth between the gauges and the camera when in reverse. How can I set it to stay on camera when in reverse? Also, sometimes when towing I like having the camera on to see what is going on back there. How do I do accomplish the above?

Mine seems to randomly switch back to gauges sometimes when I'm in reverse. It always goes back to the camera after a few seconds though.

As far as turning the camera on whenever you want to, when you go into the menu, the top option will be 'View Camera.' Just click this option and you'll see what the camera sees. You'll need to make sure that the camera is powered by something other than the reverse lights, otherwise you will only be able to use the camera in reverse (mine is powered by the 12v wire in the 7way trailer harness, thus it is on whenever the key is on).
