The magnadyne is tied with zip ties to the framework behind the radio. You willl have to take the dash surround off to get to it, cut the zip ties, then the tools will remove the radio. Don't know why they did it that way?

Ed, I thinking that the audio from the back-up camera will play through the Magnadyne once I select the proper settings. Hopefully BC will see this and be able to check with the production folks and they can pass on how this should work. I prefer that to having to figure out how to pull the center dashboard off. Thanks again, Bob.

On my Magnadyne I believe all the audio inputs are RCA connectors. My suspicion is that the black wire is a ground connection. A way to kill the audio?

Pull the panel below the steering wheel. Up in there is a silver box that controls the camera. There should be a blue wire, hooked to a blue wire. That is the "reverse" power.
Thanks for pointing out the location of the camera module.

This location made it easy for me to connect ACC power to my TPMS!

The back up monitor has a speaker on it. We've never intended the audio to play through the Magnadyne. I supposed it could, but that's not what we shoot for. You just need to hook up the blue the back up wire (whatever color that may be on the Ford. I'll see if I can find out). Or find the reverse lights fuse and trace from there.

The blue wire, gets power in reverse. That is what powers the audio driver on the back up monitor.

I used the audio cable to carry the signal of second camera. Replaced the tiny rear view mirror monitor with a 9" flat screen that supports two "sources". Raised the view from the original camera to give full coverage behind and to the sides. The new ($14 from Amazon) one starts at the rear bumper and extends about ten feet for technical backing.
