Ford's wiring has power to the mirror whenever the key is in RUN or START. The circuit in the inside mirror (or navigation screen) uses the reverse lamp feed (+12V when on) to display the video from the camera.
From what I remember, that mirror is very expensive from the factory, although it's also available in the aftermarket (Gentex 50-GENK242) for around US$340. There's also a 50-GENK352 with a larger screen, and a larger price tag. You could also buy the factory rear view camera, but you'd need to have the factory wiring harnesses if you don't want to run your own wiring.
