Has anyone used 'Coming Home' settings? Is this just a custom program for the lights when arming/disarming?

In other questions.. The 'light show buttons'? 1-6? Where are these buttons?

Oh, HOLY BALLS! Does this mean buttons 1-6 on the *radio* like the ones that look like ths stock unit? Cause *my* radio doesn't *HAVE* these mystical buttons and this whole button mess is just confusing!

Or is it something else and my thick head didn't just get a little thinner?

Hello there,
I'm searching yet for the new radio and have some questions;
I have a 2004 3.0da sport version with a stock subwoofer, and has I see the CROWZ shows the cable to the trunk, is still need to pass this cable in new radios??
I see same radio in aliexpress or Amazon, but different brands.. and needing to buy in Europe to avoid extra taxes it limits to strange brands like Erisin ES7802B. Should be ok??
And need to buy Ibus and obd adapters too, like Ebay, am I right??
Thank you guys

The ibus adapter I would get from the guy that makes them. The links on my site.

As for having to run the cable to the back it depends on if you have factory nav or not. Factory nav requires the cable to be run to the back.

I ran mine from down the glove box down to the pass door sills then to the trunk. Very easy but can be frustrating.
