Back-Up Camera Install-Need some help with wiring

There was already a back-up camera installed in my Impala when I got it. The wires in the trunk were cut when I got the car though. There is a RCA cable with a male end on it which goes to the headunit. There is two more wires that come out of the camera that I believe is for the ground and one is supposed to go to a 12V power source.

I have a Pioneer P3200BT unit and would like to be able to show the rear even when Im driving. Is this even possible?

I do not know the brand of the unit that I have since it is already installed behind the emblem.

96 Impala SS- 89K and counting. All stock except for Hotchkis sway bars and trailing arms and stereo upgrades.

With your Pioneer AVH P3200BT you can access the rear view camera while driving.

No info about brand on the face of the current unit in dash? Or when it powers up? If it is behind the trim cover you will need to take that off to find out.

Well I got the camera to work now. I had to run a wire to the floor shifter to let the unit know when I'm in reverse automatically. After driving it some I may wire it where it doesn't automatically come on.
