Attn: Audio Brainiac Aka Matt... HELP
 
So i am getting everything organized for my kenwood head unit installation.

I have the Double din bezel, dash kit, kenwood deck, and adapter/interface to talk to the amp. The shop is getting me the 2 required PAC interface/data adapters needed for the steering wheel controls.

Is there any data adapter/interface i can buy so i can still have my power memory seat and auto tilt mirrors?

I assume thats all run through the stock unit because the power seat says driver 1 or 2 on the stereo when choosing a selection and you have to have power memory seats for the auto tilt mirrors.

Please tell me i dont have to sacrifice this to change out head units. My g/f and i use both features all the time.

I don't see why the memory seats and tilt mirrors wouldn't work.... whenever I use the memory seats I get a message on the EVIC, not the radio. I don't have my radio presets set up through the memory though. That might be the only thing you lose.

I dont know, i just know that alot of cars use the radio for everything these days. I know if i go in my jeep right now and press 1 or 2 for the memory seat function it says driver 1 or driver 2 on the radio display. But if i am in D and try to do it then the EVIC will say memory seat disabled because you can only use it in park.

Hmm, I have no idea... maybe someone who has gone through the upgrade will chime in. I would guess no, but that's just a guess.

I dont even know if it will effect the memory system at all or not, I hope not but i will do some more research.

I don't think it will affect the memory seats or the tilt mirrors. I'm pretty sure there is a separate module for those features... at most I think you'll only be able to have one set of radio presets instead of two separate ones like you can with the memory feature.

I have the REC and all of my seat memory messages are displayed on the EVIC.

You should try just removing your radio real quick, and seeing if the memory seat settings still work and the tilt mirrors.

I don't know but most new radios have FM1 and FM2. Just program all yours in FM1 and hers in FM2.

He's worried about losing the memory seat option and the auto-tilt mirrors.

I had some extra time so at lunch I removed my radio, and my memory seats still worked. I don't have the auto-tilt mirrors enabled so I'm not sure if that will still work but I am going to guess that it still will.

I am not worried about the radio stations.

the memory seat/auto tilt mirrors has a seperate module that controls them
