Wink Backup camera help please 2013 Altima S

Hi All. I am grasping at straws here. I have exhausted my patience in research. I have not been on here in awhile because I did not have patience for rude responses to members trying to be helpful. (being honest)
Anyway I bought a 2013 Altima S. It had base radio. Radio display in cluster, Steering wheel radio controls.
My Partner wanted to install his aftermarket radio (nothing fancy but just has bluetooth).
I decided to take on a challenge instead. I bought a navigation radio from a 2013 Altima. Installation was not easy for sure but I have done worse. The unit is wired like it would have come factory. I could not find anything at all online. I wired everything according to the Factory wiring diagrams (down to the last pin)
I figured being I went through all of that, I would add the backup camera to it.
I completely wired and installed the camera. Camera came from a 2013 Altima S with midline radio.
Everything functions properly on the radio except the backup camera. Screen never displays when in Reverse.
I have verified radio sees reverse signal from BCM. I verified via radio (self diagnostics) and via scantool.
I have quadruple checked all of my connections. Radio does have the Camera button on bottom left for changing view while in Reverse.
I have a couple issues that may be possible.
If Navigation option was possible without backup camera option (Feature turned off in radio...)
Nissan lists 2 cameras but does not specify which one is the one for navigation, MOD, Midline radio.

If I can figure this out I will post the solution. I appreciate anyone who offers any suggestions.
I don't need to hear that if I wanted the option I should have bought one with it. I am just trying to keep the system oem and would like it to be functional if possible.
I will add that radio, navigation, etc... all display in the instrument cluster, Nav options now present in instrument cluster.
If anyone is interested I can share the project in another thread.

I did figure it out tonight.
The feature was turned off . I had to go into configuration/programming with scan tool.
There are 3 camera options. None, rear, rear and side. Feature was set to off.
It was also set to Bose Audio. I set it to Base audio.
after I wrote the configuration I had to disconnect the battery for a minute. Voila. Now all works. Just thought I would share
