Great interface but make sure you get the other interface for it to work with some chrysler vehicles

May 30, 2011

Great interface as always with all the PAC equipment but you have to make sure you get the second interface so that it works correctly with some Chrysler vehicles. In my case it took three interfaces to make my Pioneer AVH-P4300DVD work in my dodge nitro but once I got it all installed and programed it works like a dream. Two thumbs up to PAC and the SONIC crew

Good Product, Challenging Instructions

May 22, 2011

I just installed this with a Sony XAV-62BT in my 07 Toyota Highlander. It took me several tries to get the programming right, but once I did it worked great. The instructions leave a bit to be desired, both in terms of the physical installation and in how to program the device. I thought I had it right, but found that only one button (volume up) worked right. Other buttons didn't work as intended. Eventually I re-read the instructions and examples and figured out my error. Once I did that it worked flawlessly.

I do not recommend this unless you like cutting and sodering on your stock existing wires which is never recommended, safe and voids your manufacturers warranty. I purchased this and was told this is what was needed and easy to install. Incorrect. Waste of money and now sits on my shelf... buy the easy to use plug harness, no cutting or sodering required.

Neat little unit that works (almost perfectly) well.

July 30, 2011

Installed in an '06 Mazda 3 and paired with a Pioneer DEH-4300UB deck. The only odd issue I've encountered is that it'll sporadically mute the stereo. It happens pretty infrequently, however, and all the steering wheel controls otherwise function normally and as expected

In my experience the installation was fairly simple (then again, I didn't have to cut any wires on the unit or add any of those tiny resistors). I decided to connect the necessary wires to the harness I received with the Pioneer deck instead of splicing into my car's factory wiring. Easier and less destructive.

Programming the unit was also fairly straightforward in my opinion. You press and hold the buttons on the steering wheel for a few seconds > release > watch the LED on the unit blink for programming confirmation > repeat until all functions are programed. Just follow the programing sequence in the order outlined in the instructions and you're golden. If you mess up, start over. You'll have it down by your third try (IF you even need to make that many attempts).

OVERALL, I like it and I still recommend it even with it's odd little muting glitch. Had to ding it one star because of that, though.

As for "Look/Design": I gave it five stars for it's stealthy, seamless integration into my car's interior ;-)

As for durability: it's held up quite nicely in the extreme weather changes we experience here in upstate NY (below freezing winters, unbearably hot summer days).

October 4, 2011

I had problems with the mode button changing the input on my receiver out of the blue but the volume and song skip work great so I just deactivated the mode button, I may have got a defected one who knows I never tried to send it back because it just seamed to be more work to take it out then it was even with for one button.

Will not work with any Nissan or Infiniti

July 14, 2012

You need to figure out how to wire 3 out of 8 cheap resistors that are not labeled and somehow jam them into your factory harness and keep them from falling out. Once you have achieved this, it doesn't work like it should and won't program. A vehicle specific clip would be worth every penny, but none is offered.

Happy with this brand

August 9, 2011

I have a Saturn Vue 2008, and the PAC audio adapter and Steering Wheel controls worked very well to install this and my other radio. For my particular car, however, I was not able to retain factory XM radio functionality. The PAC provides 2 audio RCA plugs (L/R) for the XM, but I am unable to change the stations, so it just stays on the preview station for XM.

I recommend buying the PAC Steering Wheel adapter if you are using the PAC factory adapter and not mixing with Axxess since this product has the exact plug to use with a PAC adapter so you donít have to splice additional wires (or worry about the included resistors). I tried the PAC adapter with two radios, two different steering wheel adapters, and both worked well for their part.

Iím back on the market for a different radio because I wasnít impressed with features of currently available models of head units, so I had to return the head unit specific steering wheel adapter. But Iím definitely keeping the PAC radio adapter for whatever I decide to use, and will buy whatever PAC steering wheel adapter is necessary for that particular head unit.

Unsatisfactory

August 4, 2010

My experience with this product wasn't so good. Probably worked better for others. Too complicated to use. A lot of tedious steps in the programming process. If you have the patience for it then great. Another thing I noticed, in my case (installing it in my 07 Ford Expedition) a lot of options in my steering wheel commands would've been unused because the PAC SWI-PSv1 doesn't offer temperature control commands. After noticing that I went with the Axxess ASWC (that's a total plug-n-play item)
