According to Mugen-ji ( http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/modifi...tml#post461610 (Connecting iPod Video for A/V playback on Pioneer DVH-P5850MP)) there is a video input at the back of the 5950. The rear-view video camera can be connected to this input.

But, the question is how will you switch to the Aux-video-in when the reverse gear is engaged? IMHO asking the driver to switch explicitly via source selection (or even via the remote control) would be a right royal PITA.

Check the manual - is there a control pin that allows one to switch sources? If so, that pin could be connected to the "reverse" limit switch (the way those pesky reversing horns are connected).
