BMW Backup Camera Retrofit?

What is the easiest way to add the BMW backup camera to the X5M? I would prefer the stock unit that plugs right in and functions with the iDrive system. Not an aftermarket kit. Seems like modmynav.com is popular on here, any other options?

Can anyone tell me if I add a backup camera do I have to run the wires all the way to the navigation system in the dash or does it plug into a connector in the trunk?

This is the response I got from Kris. Unfortunately looks like adding the camera is more trouble than its worth.

X5 requires to remove trunk trims, headliner, and glove box.

Since there is not enough space either behind the screen or CIC unit, you need to place the module behind the glove box.

However when interface module needs to be placed behind the glove box, you can't use PnP kit, you need to tap 4 wires into your stock wires.
