I've bought a reverse camera which I plan to install soon. I know it can be set up so that it comes on when the reverse gear is engaged. But, I'd also like it to come on at the press of a button (for instances when I'm driving and my rear window is blocked). How might I wire this up? I guess it would need an additional live feed with a switch. Can I buy a push switch that fits into the dash, one which perhaps could replace one of those square blank switches?

Cheers and stay safe!

It depends what you want to see behind you, if it's pointed down enough to see what you're about to back into you won't see more than a few feet of the road past the back of the van. You can wire in a switch easy enough but you'll need to put a diode in the feed from the reversing light to the camera or the reversing lights will also come on with the new switch.
