One Interface to Control Them All

Finally, a simple solution to retaining the steering wheel controls of a vehicle when installing an aftermarket stereo. Introducing the Axxess ASWC, from Metra Electronics. This universal steering wheel interface is brand new for the 2010 line of Metra Axxess components and is designed to make the installers life much simpler. Unlike other steering wheel interfaces, the ASWC requires no manual programming. After making all the proper connections, this interface will automatically program itself with the new stereo and the vehicle. No more tedious programming of each button. The ASWC has a LED status light that will flash according to the programming and inform you when the sync is done. Its simple. Just plug it in and you are ready to go! Now installations can be faster, easier, and simpler! If you still prefer to do the programing manually, Axxess has left that as an option.

Ready for Any Aftermarket Stereo

No matter what type of vehicle or aftermarket stereo you are planning on installing, the ASWC has you covered! It is fully compatible with Pioneer, Sony, Alpine, Kenwood, Eclipse, JVC, and more. As long as the stereo has a wired steering wheel remote connection, the ASWC will connect and interface with the vehicle. Plus, the Metra ASWC is able to be updated.

Revolutionary! Never had it so easy....

April 15, 2010

I've been installing for 10 years, and have been installing steering wheel control interfaces produced by PAC since they were released. I don't know what they are going to do. I just installed the Axxess ASWC last night into a 2008 Toyota Scion and I couldn't believe how simple it was. Anyone who has any experience with the PAC version of the SWI Interface can probably relate to the 10 minute install 30 Minute Programming that the unit generally demands. With the SWI Interfaces you need to, make sure you have the correct unit for the manufacturer of the radio. You need to program the radio and each individual button on the steering wheel in a specific order, while holding down the programming button on the interface with a micro flat-head screwdriver. What a pain in the neck! I will never install another SWI interface now that I've discovered the ASWC. www.Axxessinterface.com allowed me to print out step-by-step instructions for the install into the vehicle and were spot on with the wire locations. After I connected the power, ground, and 3 control wires I turned the car on and done. I couldn't believe it! I didn't need to touch anything, and every button on the wheel worked for it's appropriate function! Way to go Axxess! Except now I may need to lower my price to install these things :-(

Installed the Axxess ASWC along with a Pioneer AVIC-x920BT in my 2004 Ford Expedition. Worked flawlessly the first time. Plugged/Wired everything up (Power, Ground, Control to Pioneer and to control wire in factory harness) and everything functioned perfectly with no programming or anything extra. Truly easy.

July 25, 2010

Very easy to install in my 350z. No resistors have to be used like in the competition's interface. I installed mine in a few hours but took my time because i am a novice, and i did a lot of soldering. Automatically recognized my kenwood DNX5120 and mapped all buttons except the power off button, which i will have to program manually but appears to be easily done. There is no lag when pressing buttons Great value Very small; i dont have much room back there but it fits anywhere Able to be updated with new firmware via usb for wider array of support for car models i would recommend this

HANDS ABOUT PAC

August 3, 2011

First off let me say I was a 12 volt installer for about 8 years and I can tell you this is the easiest steering adapter I have ever installed. I got this with the Pioneer 4300dvd for my honda ridgeline. when I went on axxess web site to check vehicle compatibility, and it said it would auto detect my truck. They had specific instructions for my truck in .pdf that where SPOT ON. It was literally ACC power, ground, the green/red steering control wire and ground out the other thats it. I plugged it into the stereo and turned the key to ACC, it did the rest. It was way easier then any PAC ive installed and its cheaper to boot. Check out the website if your car is under auto detect get this all day long.

This device worked as advertised. I have now put 2 different aftermarket radios in my Toyota 4runner. The first one there really wasn't anthing available like this to keep my steering wheel controls. With the 2nd radio install i used this box and worked perfect.

This worked like a breeze!

July 23, 2011

Excellent product, I am a Best Buy install tech, and I have installed many different steering wheel control integration units. This is by far the best I've worked with. The product worked exactly as described, and the set up procedure instructions were very simple to understand. The procedure for changing the function of any desired button is fairly strenuous with lots of timed and counted single button clicking, but it works well if you maintain patience.

Axxess ASWC for Edge 2008 with Pioneer

March 11, 2011

Most of the Ford Edge steering wheel functions programmed correctly out of the box but the default programming does not match the factory settings. For example the station advance or Track Advance button ended up being a tune advance and time advance instead. I have made several attempts to manually reprogram these buttons to the Ford factory set usage without success. In addition I lost the phone answer and phone hang-up functions on the steering wheel. Same story with trying to manualy program. The problem might be more about the Pioneer unit than the ASWC. I could not get any buttons to work with a PAC interface.

F350 ASWC and a Kenwood

February 24, 2011

After searching the many different steering wheel systems out there I decided on the Axxess ASWC to connect a Kenwood DNX9960 to the factory steering wheel in my Ford F350 Lariat. Overall it took me longer to setup and solder all the connections between the Axxess, Kenwood, Sub amp and speakers than it took me to set everything up. This was only because I am a stickler for neetness when it comes to wires in my F350. The ASWC found the Ford steering wheel but could not find the Kenwood DNX9969. I believe this was because of how new the Kenwood was. I was able to use the manual setup provided by the ASWC to correctly connect the steering wheel to the DNX9960. It has now been over 6 months and this system has worked flawlessly. I would recommend the Axxess ASWC to anyone who wants to build a high end audio system and incorporate the factory steering wheel controls.

Doesn't do too well in cold climates

December 11, 2010

Sonic Electronix was great. The Axxess ASWC is great when it works, but lately (November/December) it has been problematic. I have narrowed it down to not working when it is cold outside. My vehicle stays in a garage which never gets below about 30-35 degrees. Every morning that it is below about 40, this doesn't work. It will work just fine once the car warms up. The caveat is that I have to shut down the deck to get it to "see" the Axxess. So, unless I stop somewhere and shut off my car, I don't have steering wheel controls on my way to work. If I park in the sun, it usually works when I start my car the next time.

December 3, 2010

Pros: Quick response time, no lag. works with all the buttons on your steering wheel (mine was a 2003 Chevy Tahoe Z71) Cons: The buttons on my steering wheel stop working sometimes. I don't think its due to the box but how it was installed and it overheating or something. just thought id mention

Works ok.

October 6, 2010

Bought this for a mazda 3 2005 along with a Jensen 9424. It says it's compatible with this ASWC. I installed it and it did recognize my car but not my jensen radio. I had to manually program it but the only thing that worked was volume and track controls. Mode and mute didn't, I contacted Axxess tech support. They told me most likely it's outdated so they asked me to send it to them and they would update it for me free of charge. Unless you wanna buy the 60 dollar cable and update it yourself. So I sent it and I'm still waiting for it. Hope it works!!!

I bought this because C********* said I didn't have a choice with them. This thing programs itself after installing it. What else could you ask for. Install it and your done. It found my Kenwood Excelon code no problem. I did have to call tech support (my fault) and they walked me through it. I don't know how the other products like this compare, but I'm glad I got this one.

BUYER BEWARE you may be in for a journey

August 24, 2010

2008 BMW Z4, AXXESS ASWC, JVC KD-A815. Radio works great. The steering wheel controls auto-detected as advertised....then I turn the key off. Turn it back on steering wheel controls don't work. Reset the auto-detect and all is well...until I turn the key off. Repeat. Sonics been great but can't fix since they don't have the $60 cable to update the firmware. If you need the update you have to 1) send it back to AXXESS at your cost and they will update, 2) take it to a local shop that has the cable and pay what they charge, 3) buy the $60 cable doubling cost or, 4) send it back for a refund. When the product works it does a good job. No lag etc. If you have my problem you might pay more for the cable than the unit or chase your tail to find someone with the cable. I'm a little mad at metra/axxess right now as it feels like extortion. Hence buyer beware....you have been warned. BTW my car is a 2008 and the unit was built Feb 2010 but some how the profile was not in there yet....sounds like you want another $60 metra

This is a great product; best on the market. We've tried other unit (P....) and could not get it to work on our 2004 Nissan Altima. We installed this unit (Axxess) in less than 1/2 hour. No soldering and/or resistors to support your installation. Just connect wiring (5) per instructions and turn on the ignition (to accessory). Your Done! Simple!

I have a 2001 Pathfinder LE and a JVC KW-NT3HDT dash unit. After I got the ASWC connected, it auto-detected both quickly, working perfectly with no lag. The instructions off of their website were accurate, but in my Pathfinder's case, it didn't specify that the connector the ASWC needed to connect to was an auxiliary one, and not the ones to the dash unit (both are 16 pins). I called their tech support and they got me on the right track. The other issue was that I had initially plugged the 3.5 mm cable from the ASWC into the wrong input on my dash unit. Once that got sorted, it all came up perfectly the first time. All the buttons had the right functions as well. This is a great product!
