Well, I'm installing my new AVIC D3 tonight and need a little help. Where do I tap into to hook up the purple wire (for reverse)? Which wire on the truck triggers the reverse lights? Thanks in advance you guys.

I did the bypass already. All I had to do for that was move the black/yellow (mute) wire to another pin which I did. But the purple wire is so the navigation system knows if you're going forward or backwards. It's supposed to be hooked up to the wire that gets "hot" when you put the truck in reverse.

It's ok. I appreciate you trying. I'll just leave that one unhooked for now until someone else knows the color to connect it to.

Just an FYI for those who may want to know. I just got off the phone with Chevrolet and they told me that the reverse wire is light green.

It's Done!!!!!!!!!

IT'S IN AND IT'S WORKING!!!! Thank you all so much for your knowledge and support. The only question I have is can you change the voice on the navi? I'd rather have a guy talking to me than a chick. My friends navi system has several voices to choose from. Does this one?
