Aftermarket headunit

Hi Iv been reading up on this in the forum, but what im reading is that if installing a new headunit, it will always be on either with or without the ignition being on unless u have connect nav(but then why change?). this to me sounds a silly stilo way, so im just asking for a deffinate answer that there is no way of getting an ignition feed into the stereo and make it work like stereos should.

thanks

Re: Aftermarket headunit

I dont know much about the things that make cars go, but surely you must be able to disconnect the live from the ignition and run a direct live to the head unit from another source (ie the battery with an inline fuse), thus enabling you to turn it on and off manually as you wish. I could be wrong but I'm sure this should be possible as it is in other cars.

Re: Aftermarket headunit

It's a possibility, big hairy great fuse and wiring loom for that

I personally like the stereo being totally independant...until the day I leave it on
