Question about this receiver

I'm buying this receiver in a few weeks Kenwood KIV-700 Digital media receiver at Crutchfield.com

I noticed it had an AUX input. Well thanks to Korey I'm very interested in a rear view camera, but don't want to shell out the dough (cause I don't have it) for a double din.

Would I be able to add a back up camera using the AUX input and just switch to it when I want to look behind me?

This is prolly a dumb question, but I'm still not great with wiring.

It says it has 1 A/V input. If it really does I'm sure it would work. Just wire the camera to have power whenever the truck is on.

Just got off the phone with Crutchfield, the receiver only does video through the ipod. It doesn't accept a video input through the AUX input.

Oh well
