    Z3M and a Continental

    Hi.
    I recently installed a continental TR7412UB-OR head unit.
    I used an adapter to connect to the Z3 wiring loom.
    Followed the wire codes / colors.

    All seems ok. Looks and sounds great.
    One annoying issue.

    When turning off the clock resets to zero.
    Also the USB option will not remember the last track played and resets to be first album on the memory stick.

    It’s like the permanent +VE is not keeping the settings.

    Anyone else used on of these continental units before?

    Thanks

    Youíre missing a single wire that provides power to the head unit as long as the battery is connected. Check the head unitís wiring diagram for a second wire thatís labeled as ď12VDC in.Ē
