Eonon users - Anyone set up a front facing camera? tips? E46 owner...

I have the Eonon D5150 unit and it works great. Running USB, Ipod, Navigation, radio even setup a backup camera which was pretty easy to install too.

Anyway, seems a no brainer to put in a front facing camera since these things can be had on Ebay for like 15 bucks. So, anyone actually set up a front facing camera? I have an E46 M3, so advice geared towards that would be great, but really I just want to know if its possible. The wiring harness looks to allow for a front facing camera since there's a plug marked video in. I'm sure that could be used for dashcams and such, but I think it would be neat just to have to another set of eyes for parking.

Is there some button on the unit that you press for the front facing camera to turn on. Is it always on? Having 2 video inputs makes sense, but wouldn't if one of the inputs doesn't have a button or screen icon to activate it.
