sorry for the late response. i got busy and didn't see the notificaton for your post. Currently i manually launch mine as i haven't had time to mess with the joycon any more. but there are several ways you can do it.

One, if your running the joycon you can tap your reverse light and use that wire as an input to signal the joycon and it can then launch the app that works with the camera that you chose. this is what i want to finish when my life settles down a bit.

two, also if you are using the joycon, there should be a canbus message that will normally notify everything that you are in reverse and when you leave reverse. you could then program that you launch an app. i chose not to do this as i didn't want to sit for an hour shifting gears to find the code and i couldn't find it online

three, the kernel that i'm using and app i'm using can use device detection and launch when it detects the camera connected in this way you would just tap the reverse light brake line and tie it to the camera power. i also chose not to use this method because i wanted to be able to use the camera at any time not just in reverse. i have my camera powered any time the truck is on.

Thanks for all your help. I haven't had time to mess with this since the last time I posted but you def. understood what it was I was asking and I hope that it'll work for me when I try it. Will post results when I mess with it. Most of my time was spent running a switched power lead from the engine fuse box since all my interior electronics have constant 12v. I like your advice on the backup camera, that was probably gonna be might next question (now I dont have to ask it lol)

I'm still having basic problems with mine. It never goes into a deep sleep with Temur's Kernel. The battery goes dead within 2-3 days. I don't even know where to start looking... :-(

The best help for this would be on timur's reddit forum. my bet is you have an app open that is stopping it from going all the way to sleep. make sure to uninstall/disable all the things you don't need to have installed in the truck. after that there are some other places i can possibly walk you threw checking.

I'm having to trouble finding Timur. I can find plenty of stuff ABOUT him, but not by him...
I've deleted/disabled a bunch of stuff, but it still won't sleep. I've noticed that the gps has a fix the instant the tablet comes on, which can't be right... I'm on the road for a week now, so I won't have much time to play until after Christmas.
