Question Tapping into reverse lamp wire in the front?

Anyone know if I can tap into the reverse lamp wire in the fuse box, by the shifter, or elsewhere in the front of the car? The car is a 6MT.

I need to tap into that wire as I'm setting up a wireless rear view camera and the iDrive interface I'm using uses a trigger wire that switches the source to the camera when the car is in reverse.

I'd hate to run a wire all the way from the center stack area to the rear of the car.

Any experts on this?
