Apparently they sell several different types if you do a quick search.
I would consider this. Does anyone have experience with it? Does a wiring diagram come with??

I'm using one for a different radio. It works as expected. I can access the phone functions that would normally be hidden, etc.

The wiring diagram that comes with it is simple. There is just ground, and two connections to the radio for parking brake and some kind of remote antenna connection.

What I have learned so far is that I need a 5 pin relay and some wire and attach it to the green parking brake wire and something else. Problem is no one mentioned what kind of wire to be used which is what I would like to know. I have extra wires in the harness which are not being used (mute, power antenna, etc) but I would rather not cut them (for no good reason).

If anyone could help that would be great.

TIA
As long as you connect your wire (that goes to the parking break wire) to ANY ground nut/bolt in the vehicle, the parking brake wire will be bypassed. Don't buy anything extra, it's a waste.

Supposedly that does not work on the Pioneer head units.

It doesn't. Most of the DD Pioneers (non-nav) need a double pulse switch - off>on. The AVH8400 needs a triple - on>off>on. The prewired harnesses that are sold on Amazon/ebay are the simplest way to go.

most newer models need a pulsing switch. this is because the system now "senses" the change of the brake being engaged and disengaged. buying that ebay/amazon harness is your best bet. on my first unit, JVC, i just grounded the cable and it worked perfectly. but on my clarion unit, i made a relay, but now i look back and should have just got the bypass from ebay/amazon because its much smaller.

yeah... only three wires. I just have to go out and get the right connectors so I can splice them together. CAN'T WAIT! Then after that is done, I am waiting on my backup camera to hook up to the head unit as well. FUN FUN FUN!

Not that anyone asked but... I have 120,000 miles on my '06 base. I feel it will run another 4-5 years so I am trying to breathe life into the interior / functionality of the vehicle so I "feel" like it is newer.
