I used this kit.

install was fairly easy. hardest part was the reverse trigger wire. I would recommend buying one pre-made. you need to tap into a jack in the back of the head unit. the jack is empty in that slot. some people jam a wire in. I didn't want to do that. It happened that I had a pin that would work. then connecting to the wire behind the drivers side kick panel is not an easy reach. I did manage to strip and solder the wire. the wire you are tapping into is pretty small. I used a 22 guage for the jumper and it was a little smaller than that. I tucked the wire going back to the camera under the center console and under the back seat. that simplified the install.
here is a pre-made trigger wire.
