Question Xtrons External amp wiring advice?

This maybe a stupid question but can anybody tell me which wire I need to connect the 'Remote power on' function for an external amplifier?

I was looking for an obvious wire that said 'remote on' but I can't seem to see one?

I'm not sure which model number it is but its a windscreen unit (but not the later one that sticks out of the dashboard) .

Can anybody help?

In the OE audio wiring loom, the Purple/Yellow cable is 'on' when the set is switched on, the Light Green/White is 'on' when the ignition is switched on.

I might be going blind but I can't see either a green with white or a purple with yellow 🤔.

Have another look in the grey 8 pin ISO connector in your first picture.

Could I use the ANT power antenna wire? . there is an option in my settings to keep it permanently live when the unit is turned on.

Yes, the Purple/Yellow in the OE system is a live feed to the aerial amplifier, it is 'on' when the set is switched on.
