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 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.

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).

Not worth it in my vehicle.......

November 6, 2010

I had a car audio shop install this for me and they had issues with it. It was installed it in a Buick Lesabre 2001. The only control that works 95% of the time is the volume up and down. all of the other buttons on the steering wheel either do nothing or not what they were supposed to do. I could hit the next track and it starts the song over again. Hit the mute button and it does the source. Not worth it for me, I wind up using the radio buttones instead.

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)

works so-so

August 1, 2010

This unit is installed on a Honda Odyssey (2006) and connected to a Pioneer AVIC Z110BT. Two issues keep me from rating it higher:
1. The Mode button on the steering column originally worked and would change the AV mode of the AVIC Z110 (radio -> CD --> iPOD, etc). However, it stopped working and the installer couldn't get it to work. so now I have to switch AV mode via the AVIC, which is more dangerous and less convenient.
2. When in radio mode on the AVIC, The track/channel up/down buttons on the steering column don't put the radio to the next preset. Instead, they just increment the frequency one notch. This may be a deficiency in the AVIC. If so, the manufacturer needs to partner with Pioneer and get it fixed.

It didn't fit my car - SCION XD 2009. Just no compatibility.
On the web site, when I was ordering it, I saw this model in the list of supported cars. However when I received the product, it had another list, where there was no SCION XD 2009.

I'm really dissapointed.

Great product!

March 12, 2012

I purchased this product because I bought a new deck for my 2005 Nissan Altima. The car had radio controls on the steering wheel and best buy wanted $200 to install it. So I purchased one through Sonic and installed it with my brother. It took almost 2 hours but was definitely worth it. This product works great and I would recommend it to anyone that wants to be able to use their steering wheel controls.

Great on 2008 Subaru Impreza

May 9, 2010

I installed this in my 2008 Subaru Impreza 2.5i with my new Pioneer Double-Din deck, and it works great. Only had to splice in 2 wires, and zip tie the rest. Also was very easy to program. There is a small lag time between when you push the steering wheel buttons and the actual operation, but nothing drastic. Great product.

Worked as advertised

November 22, 2010

I used this adapter on my 2002 BMW X5 after installing a used Pioneer AVIC Z2. It worked as advertised, and now I can use all the steering wheel buttons to control the radio.

The version I had claimed to have expanded features to allow for ancillary controls, but these did not seem to work in my combination of vehicle, control, and radio. However, the volume, mute, track select, and source select programmed fine (and that was all the buttons I had anyway) so it worked out very well.

The programming instructions were very clear, but you must follow them carefully. Patience pays.

If your steering wheel controls don't work because of a stereo upgrade, don't hesitate get this product! I just installed this in my 2010 corrolla S. I ordered the old version but they sent me the new version for the same price. I dont know why. For those of you confused with new / old version, they are the same except for one thing: the new one is for those steering wheels with blue tooth buttons ( answer, hang up, mute). so if you dont have blue tooth controls on your steering wheel, save money and get the old version ( even If its a new car).
Installation would have been difficult but: I TOOK MY TIME. And I went to PAC's website and printed out directions specific to MY CAR.
After install my steering wheel was fully functional again.

PS. be careful with the ohm resistors, I twisted the wire nut too hard and I broke mine. I called Radio Shack and they had them.

Don't Always Believe It

March 15, 2010

I am a professional installer and have installed numerous PAC SWC units. For this reason I trusted the SWI-PS to be the solution to my own systems SWC's.

I installed the SWI-PS into a 99 Monte Carlo LS in conjunction with the Sony XAV7W. The SWI-PS worked as an interface for the SWC's functions with no operational difficulty.

Here's the problem. PAC and Sony both claimed that these units were compatible with each other but upon installing the SWC interface, the Sony XAV7W would lose the back-light on both the front display as well as the primary 7" display any time the car's Ignition was turned off and then on again for an undetermined amount of time.

If you have a Sony XAV7W, I cannot recommend the SWI-PS as a solution to the SWC interfacing. Don't always believe the manufacturers when they claim the unit being offered is compatible with the device it's being connected to. PAC claims there are no known problems with their SWC interfaces to this particular Sony model. Now they know.

I installed this adapter per the instructions and just could not get it to program for my steering wheel buttons. The installation and programming instructions for this device are poorly written. I wasted hours trying to get this thing to work. The quality and design is pretty awful.

Great Product! Bad Instructions

June 8, 2010

Product works awesome! Previously had the Pac adapter that was wireless which worked intermittently. I wanted something that was hard wired and so far this is working awesome. Only down side were the instructions. They were incorrect for my Jeep liberty and I received very little input from PAC's tech support. They tried to say that the voltage was too low without knowing anything about it and didn't listen to what I had to say. Ended up trying several different programs and a program for a different Jeep worked(99-04 Grand Cherokee). Sent them an email explaining how the instructions were wrong and all they said back was I needed to call tech for support. Pretty much useless. Either way, if you can figure out how to program it, its a great product!

I still don't know the difference with the original version, anyway, it works great with the AVH-P5050DVD (AVH-P5000DVD). I replaced a PAC-SWIX with this item and it works so well, programming was easy, buttons respond really fast. And I think the improvements with this version are usefull with the CD-BTB200 bluetooth module, where you can see your phone status, accept or reject a call... I think... maybe I'll never know... but you can do these tings...

can't do them wit the previous version???

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.

Overall good product. Took a while to program/install. Does what it's supposed to do. Only con is that it's a little slow, there is a noticeable delay from when you press the button and when the device responds, but it's not too bad. Also for some reason every once and a while when I hit my turn signal the device will switch the source on the receiver, but that's probably an error on my part. Its worth it.

I'm overall happy with the psv1. There IS an issue I'm not sure is with the product or with the installation itself. The up/down steering control will sometimes activate the Bluetooth commands if I press for more than a few seconds at a time. May just be installation error. Overall works like a champ.

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.

I have had this installed for several months now. Works flawlessly! Controls my iPod too, which I like. Installation can be tricky, I had to get into the steering column to find the signal wire. Thankfully PAC has an extensive list of makes and models of vehicles and how to properly wire in the unit.

Not so easy

December 27, 2012

I would not recommend this product. It was not an easy installation. I have installed this in a 2006 Ford Explorer. The resistor needed to be added in line. Wires from the PAC need to be spliced into the factory connection. It would periodically raise the volume.

I do not care for this product, I have spoken to someone who installed the competitors, it was much easier.
