yes you can find generic info on this. most all the systems, no matter name brand, have the same basic installation.
you will need a 12 volt power source for the monitor. the camera power will come from the reverse lights power source(tap into the power at the reverse light), then you will need to run an rca style cable from the camera mounted position to the monitor itself.
so every time you put vehicle in reverse the camera comes on.
or you can wire the camera and the monitor through a switch and it will come on anytime the switch is turned on. but if you do this, the switch need to be wired to a ignition controlled power source.
This is how to hook up the Pyle PLCM7300BT: On the license plate camera, plug the black cable provided with 2-wires inside (one red and one black) to its counterpart on the camera. On the open end of this black cable, strip and connect the black wire to the car/truck metal body part. Connect the red wire from the camera and the green wire from the monitor (part of the big black cable from the monitor) to the power wire to the back-up lamp socket. Connect the Red wire from the monitor to a switched terminal on the fuse box so that it would only have power when you have the ignition key on. The rest of the wiring is simple and common sense. To operate, turn on the ignition of you car/truck and put it on reverse you should see the camera view. Put the car/truck on Park, the monitor screen should go back, if not, push the power button once. To set up the blue tooth: Push the power button on the monitor so that you can see the blue screen and "no Input". Put your phone on discoverable mode and push scan for device. AT the same time push the "pair" button on the monitor.
I did all the figuring out on the bench using a 12 VDC power supplies and contact switches to make sure I understood how it worked. Once installed on my 1988 Suburban, it worked as expected.
The only problem I had to patch the long green wire (reverse car) so that it reached the back-up light socket.

I added some extra line and hooked it up to my trailer plugs' light green wire. I also connected it to the tail light solid green wire. Both produced current the same way. Still blue sreen with no signal...but I am sure this s where to plug them.
You need to connect this to a 12v switching circuit to enable the camera to overide the current display.
For example, you could attach it to the reversing light switch in the gear box so that when you select reverse the picture is over ridden with your camera view. Or to the reversing lamp. You could connect it direct to a switch for manual control.
The speculation on this webpage:
makes it sound like it is a trigger to switch the monitor to display a rear-facing camera when you put the car into reverse. You would either wire it to a manual switch (to 12v) or to your reverse lights.
