It's also tied into the anti theft system, when someone tries to steal the truck, their picture is taken and sent thru the black box wireless network to the local 911 department for further identification. This is a way to help bring insurance cost down for them and for customers that have to pay for accidents they don't get into or fraudulent insurance claims.
This is also a legal way to track drug dealers. There is an air sniffer that has been modeled after the smelling sensory glands of a dog. It can pick up the scent of 99.9% of the drugs available. When it senses the drugs, your picture is taken along with the longitude and latitude coordinates of your location and sent to the local 911 department thru the vehicle wireless system. Don't try to disconnect it, there is a sensor on the trim panel that will take a snapshot of your trying to remove it and that is a federal crime, worthy of 3-7 years in a federal prison.

But really, if your installer is totally curious about it, have him take the bezel down and unplug the camera while wearing a mask and you could tell the feds that someone was trying to steal the truck.
