    Is that aimed at anyone specific or in general?

    If it's in general, then yes you can.

    You can only do that on stock HU's or Blaupunkt aftermarket, no idea why you'd want to though.

    Mine does it, to get arround the switched live i just connected perm live to both.

    Allows me to boom without ignition on or keys in so when im at petrol station the fionce can continue listening to her podcast or something. Its only really useful in scarce situations.

    I got the same stereo as above though but i need to hook up my rear speakers etc.

    That's what I was thinking. It shouldn't work the same way as audi stereo. When you take the key out it will not turn on.
    And because of that would prefer how Nutkin's got it sorted. All is needed is to connect yellow wire with red one on your head unit.
    If someone asks why it's better - because for example I can clean my car and listen to radio without keys being inside.

    What, you don't trust your fiance to leave the keys in the ignition? Not a good basis for marriage.......

    yeah great, all seems fine. There were a lot of cables in there at the end, but loads of room.

    The only change i might ake going forward is the extra power feed on ther aerial, i currently have 1 lot of power going to the aerial and i could add the second.

    Going out tomorrow so will give it a good test.

    Cheers mate.
