I bought my video module and camera from (board sponsor) European Auto Source.

Yes, you need a video module that connects to the NAV. The camera then connects to the video module. The image from the camera comes on the NAV screen.

I have mine hooked to the reverse light so the camera comes on when the car is in reverse. I also have a second trigger, a toggle switch, that allows me to turn on the camera when ever I wish.
