Hey-

Is it possible to retain the functionality of my steering wheel controls if I install a different head unit, say the eclipse 7000?

Yes, as long as your head unit has an infrared port on it (for a wireless remote control), you can use a PAC-SWIX:

Depending on the head unit, PAC also makes adapters specifically for certain branded head units, but they require a wired remote control input. The Alpine CDA-9857 is an example of this, cuts the wiring necessary in half.

I had the PAC-ECL...it didn't work too well with my AVN-5435. Might be a different story with your 7000.
