Here you go:Seekers of Secrets, p51 wrote:
Wayfinders and Ioun StonesWithin each wayfinder is a fine lattice of wires that serve to channel the power of ioun stones, allowing the owner of a wayfinder to benefit from a stone’s power without the attendant risk of having a valuable item orbiting around her head. In addition, the magic worked into the wayfinder amplifies the power of the ioun stone, usually (about 75% of the time) unlocking new abilities in addition to the stone’s normal power. Unfortunately, the energy required is such that the magical properties of the wayfinder itself are diverted to power the ioun stone, temporarily negating the wayfinder’s normal abilities.
So easy to miss, as is the reference in the Pathfinder Society Primer on page 23 - it is listed in the Resonant Powers section, 1st paragraph.
It seems a little silly - Pathfinder needs a light, pops out the Ioun Stone, cast light, pops Ioun Stone back in - get's out their Torch Ioun Stone and continues to explore.
I can see limiting the non-Cantrip powers of the Wayfinder, but for a single cantrip (or maybe two if Inherited is bought)?
