We do it because many people that tow (boat, car, etc) would like to be able to have the camera on at all times. By hooking it into a separate monitor, you can change radio stations, use the GPS an still keep an eye on the tow vehicle.
Not necessary...other mfg's still wire to the dash radio to save the cost of the extra monitor.
