Default Parking Brake Wire Location?????

OK, so a couple Weeks ago my Cruiser was Broken into and they not only Stole EVERYTHING, but Trashed my Interior as well, they even took a Hammer to my Gauges, but LUCKILY, I have GREAT Auto Insurance, so I got a HUGE Check out of it all and decided to use the Money to do some MAJOR Upgrades to my Cruiser, plus get a Stereo System, that I could never have Afforded before, so I Called Crutchfield and got all New EVERYTHING, such as New Speakers, a Bandpass Powered Subwoofer, which is also Illuminated and a Pioneer AVH-P5200BT In-Dash DVD System with the Add-On Pioneer AVIC-U220 GPS Navigation System, plus, since my Cruiser is a Convertible, I thought it best to Buy the Optional Remote as well, now, here's the Problem... With the In-Dash DVD Systems, you have to Wire them to the Parking Brake, otherwise, they won't Play; however, like most People, I wanted to Bypass that, so when I have Friends and Family in my Cruiser, they can Watch DVD's as I Drive, plus I Drive to a TON of PT Cruiser Shows and Meets, not to mention I do A LOT of Camping, so Bypassing the Parking Brake makes sense for me, BUT, with the Navigation System Installed and Activated, the Bypass no longer works, as the Navigation System Cancels it out once it's all Booted up, so then nothing works, not unless I Disconnect the Navigation System from it's Dock, but I NEED my GPS, LOL, so that's not an option and it seems other People with the same System as me are having the same Problem, so I guess maybe unless somebody here has any ideas, I'm better off just Hooking this up to the Parking Brake, but I have no idea where the Wire is or what it looks like, it's not under the Center Console BTW, so can anyone here HELP, because I really need to get this all Hooked up ASAP and right now, I'm at a stand still you know.
