I found out where the cable are location at the front centre console to the microphone, apparently the microphone and reverse camera work on the same cables.
So you can ever solder at the rear of Navigation unit or at this roof location.
To remove the front roof console pull at the rear straight down hard.
The below picture is at the plug F12 soldering on the extension cable to existing cables.
sorry a bit out of focus.
