   Auto power off is useful when you just have a radio to turn off, but 
not so much when you have other equipment.  ;-)  ( Unless you happen to 
have a radio that can feed other devices, of course.)  But APO doesn't 
help when you want everything to automatically turn on again, once the 
vehicle starts up later.
