Question about Roadmaster (VR500CSBT)
Problem: Sometimes when I turn off the car and remove the faceplate, when I place it back and turn the car on, the unit lost all settings (FM stations, bluetooth conection, etc.) and I have to set everything again.
Sometimes it just works fine.
I have tried all possible combinations: turning off the radio before the car, removing the face when the car is on, turning the car off, then removing the face... etc. and I can't find the problem.
p.s. I post the manual for the unit, in case somebody needs it.
Well, this has been an interesting ride. I received a new faceplate, but that actually made the problem worse - lost settings EVERY time I removed the faceplate. So they sent me a new unit. I installed it, and it worked for 10 minutes, heard a pop from the speakers, and the left channel died. They sent me a third unit, installed it and it works, but still loses settings if the faceplate is removed for longer that 2 - 3 hours. Also in AM, unit makes weird space ship type noises, even with the car's engine turned off. Now they have stopped responding to my e-mails - guess I am stuck with this turkey of a stereo. Buy one at your own risk!!!

No man, you should take a direct line from the car battery to the unit, then you radio station will be saved all the time, do it in specialist in cars, just tell it that
