Thumbs up DIY? Anyone with step by step of how to hardwire a backup camera?

Hi All,
Anyone have instructions for the VR3 backup camera (or any brand camera)? I want to hardwire mine. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Is the VR3 the wireless backup camera with a 3.5 screen? If it is one of my friends hard wired a 12v supply for the screen from the overhead console/map light and tap into the backup light for the camera supply. He has a GMC Sierra though. I was thinking of getting one next time I'm in costco.

i just got back from costco here in houston and they no longer carry it. Probably have to order it thru their site or try walmart (sam's doesn't carry it either).


edit: don't see it on their (costco's) site either.
