Stereo Presets Stay Saved Without Power - Possible?

I've found that I MUST turn the battery kill switch if I won't be driving for a couple days, less I keep it on a tender 24/7. This is fine, but having to manually seek for my preferred stations every time I'm in the car is a PITA.

Has anyone found a headunit that saves presets to an internal memory (i.e. an SD card) that doesn't clear when it loses power?

Don't know any headunits that would do that, but have you considered trying to diagnose that power drain issue instead?

Other option would be to put a backup battery on the headunit, similar to how you power a dash cam with parking sensors, but that seems like more work than troubleshooting the phantom load.

I assumed it was the nature of the beast, but perhaps that isn't the case.

Depends on what a couple days is to you. If it's not at least a few weeks, then definitely not. At 3+ weeks I'd be concerned without a tender. Could just mean your battery is on the way out, could mean there's something electrical afoot.
