It won't fix the problem after it occurs, but it could prevent it
from happening in a lot of cases.  The radio doesn't get power until
a few seconds after the engine starts and the power buss comes up to

Perhaps it won't work (for undervoltage while starting) if you are
turning off the engine for only a short time and then starting
again:  The APO3 might not have turned off yet due to time or
voltage.  I run an APO2 in my Jeep which keeps power to my radio
until the voltage goes below a preset level, which can be 20 minutes
or more.  I don't know if the APO3 is identical in it's operation to
the APO2.  Someone with an APO3 might comment on that.
