Killing all power requires us to re-do the set-up parameters (language, etc.) each time - something I 'd like to avoid.

In my research of the Kenwood wiring requirements and my experience with the Airstream installed unit if you cut all power to the Kenwood the setup screen comes up on re-powering this integrated unit. You don't have to enter new data just go to bottom of the screen and select next. All my radio presets and navigation history remain. You can't separate the power for navigation from other functions of the unit.

My apologies, I may have not been clear--when I spoke of shutting off the navigation system I meant the entire system including the music portion of the unit. I do not remember the wire other than recalling a split wire that connects to the chassis and coach batteries. I suspect you have the original Kenwood and the loss of information stored indicates a hard system reset. I was never able to store data in the navigation system for any long periods of time and in hindsight this was a symptom of the Kenwood system eventually failing. To my knowledge it is a single power source for navigation and music systems. I had the toggle shut off in cases where I was boondocking on coach batteries, not using navigation/music, and didn't want to draw from coach batteries. With 440Ah of battery backup, I rarely use the toggle, but wanted the option in case. I hope this answers your question better.
