Not sure how many people (if any) this applies to but here goes. I got an Eclipse 8445 a while back and managed to get the sw control file from them so i could directly interface the controls to my head unit without the use of a PAC unit (even though i bought one w/o knowing first)

Anyway, it works fairly well-little buggy sometimes but I've found that if the controls start getting messed up (for example hitting station up /down would switch modes), just pop the front piece of plastic off and clean the contacts on the PCB and also the little pieces of metal on the buttons themselves with some alcohol. I guess over time crap from your hands, cleaners, etc.. get into the spaces between the buttons. Don't know if anyone's had this problem with the stock controls but just figured i'd share.
