Nav Head Unit/Back Up Camera

I tried looking in past threads for this but couldn't find anything without going back really far. I remember seeing something saying it is possible to hook up a backup camera to a factory nav head unit and it would also convert it to be able to watch movies. All the posts I could find was adding one to a aftermarket one.

Is it possible to add a backup camera to a factory navigation head unit in my 06 F350?
It has a 'line in' on the screen. Would that be the tab it would be connected to?
I've heard something about a lockpin. Would I need it? Who makes it?
Also, what backup camera would you guys recommend to use?

On a side note, is it possible to also add bluetooth to the head unit?

Thanks

Not even the factory runs the reverse camera into the head unit until 2008. Before this it was run in the rear view mirror. I don't believe there is a way to do this without an expensive module.

Ya that seems to me what I'm looking for. Thanks Bondsman!

Has anyone tried it? Is it a waste of money? I just don't to have my dash cluttered with lots of things if I don't have to. That's why i'm looking for something like this.
