2017 2nd Gen Sport Reverse Wire

I am installing a new head unit into our 2nd Gen 2017 Sport / Manual Trans FWD Compass, and I was wondering if anyone knew exactly what wire I could tap off of to get the reverse signal. Preference would be to pick it up from either front / side kick panel instead of the CF of wires at the BCM.

I’ll trace it from a taillight if needed, just seeing if anyone knew already. Thanks!

Found the answer:

It is still the white wire with the green strip (as with the previous gen), found under the driver-side kick panel. You can verify the wire type by pulling the driver-side rear lift gate wire grommet, and see the same wire routing to the back-up camera. This is a much easier location to tap into the wire as compared to near the BCM, or from the back of the vehicle.
