Just wondering if it's a bad idea to wire 3 units (lcd screen, dvd player, navigation) power wire (yellow) to the same source?  The accessory wires would be going to their own separate source per unit.  Hard to explain my reasoning for wanting to do this.  Anyone done it before?  Thanks in advance!

Just wanted to simplify my question.  I want to know if it is ok to use the power wire from the radio harness to power (memory) my dvh-p7000, avx-7300, and avic-9dvd.  accessory wires will each be to different sources.  Thanks!

As long as the total current draw of all the components does not overload the source fuse, then sure it's OK to do this.

yep if your not putting a hard load on that power source than its fine... use a DMM when you get everything hooked up and powered up at full power and make sure the voltage is ok
