Hey All,
I have just finished installing my New Sony DVD XAV-W1 Head Unit into the stock soundsystem of my VY Series 2, my problem is that every time i switch the car off, the HeadUnit loses all its settings except for the security code.... I have double and triple checked my connections to the ISO harness and there appears to be nothing out of place, with all connections properly secured,
Other than that i have been really impressed by the quality of the head unit :yeah:
Any Ideas???
Cheers,
Cam

Nice choice of unit! It is a really good unit! In fact, i've got one sitting here in my room for when i do get some time to install in my VY! So much you can do with them! :D

Have you hooked up the steering wheel paddle to the head unit?

And to your question, hakhawk's is the answer!

VYCamo, it's possible if you buy a CAT. It's not possible out of the box. I'll HOPEFULLY soon have a device to convert the paddles to what Sony understands!

Actually, today at uni i had a lot of free time and i got to thinking....

Got a quick question, is your new head unit able to switched on when the keys out of the igntion? Or not? I know with the standard ones you just have to press On and they work without a key or accesories for i think 5 minutes... depending. Once my radio was on for 30 minutes before i went out to switch it off!

If not i was thinking of making a circuit to give it power for 5 minutes or so power from the moment you push a button! :p

Nice idea :thumbsup:, at the moment, the keys have to be in with the car in at least acess for the h/u to have power, think it must be something to do with the loom that the stock radio connections are hooked up to, just picked up a sony cd stacker off ebay too, bargain at about $40 including freight, even tho i dont need it with my ipod in my glovebox haha

OK, well, looks like i'll probably be designing the circuit tomorrow in a boring class... along with fixing my Microsoft Outlook which is playing up! :D This circuit should be easy! :) I know people would be interested, i use this function quite a BIT!
