Product Description

Product Packaging: Standard Packaging

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. 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. This means that the interface will never be out dated. For the simplest way to retain the steering wheel control in your car, choose the Axxess ASWC!

I don't know why you would buy the alternative. I ripped out my PAC SWI jack because it wouldn't work right. Connected the simple three wires on this unit, turned on the ignition, and the unit programmed itself in about 30 seconds. And it works great! I have all my buttons working on my Chevy truck steering wheel. When I had the PAC SWI Jack installed, it took the installer quite a while to program it, and then I lost two of my steering wheel buttons because he said it just wont work. Now I have everything and it only took me about ten minutes to install the whole thing. And I have never done this before. The website instructions were perfect and easy.

Initially had the SWI PAC installed. Response delay to button press with SWI PAC was irritating. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't. AXXESS ASWC has much faster response. Auto detect function worked as described. Easy install.

When I first installed the harness in my car it worked flawlessly for ten seconds and then any button I would click it would go haywire and act like i was clicking that button over and over rapidly. I contacted customer service (which takes a few days/weeks to respond between emails) and they asked me the basics about wiring and model number to check the firmware. After confirming everything I had was right they said it was probably just a faulty product and that I should return it to where I purchased. This was took over 3 months for the complete conversation to take place, the return window after buying from amazon is apparently 1 month. Metra however has a 1 year manufacturers warranty as posted in the description for the product, however in order to return the for a replacement you have to email amazon and get a rep to send you one.

I changed this from a one star to a four, why? Because Amazon being the the company they are responded to my email to them with a shipping confirmation of a replacement and an email apologizing for the inconvenience. I got the replacement in the mail a few days later and when I replaced the one I had it worked flawlessly.

Moral of the story is, if you buy this product and have ANY problems with it, contact Amazon and don't waist your time with Metra.

Metra's ASWC adapter is easy to install (just connect one wire, ground a second, and solder one or two more), conveniently programs itself automatically, and even lets you remap the buttons manually if you feel like it. It mostly works as advertised, restoring use of the steering wheel buttons that would otherwise become sitting blanks after a stereo upgrade. And according to most user reviews out there, this is the first product on the market that does it right, and reliably.

But one slip of logic made it through the design process. You know those arrow buttons on your steering wheel? Well, Metra gives you the choice of making those buttons work as 1. a combination of STATION SEEK (in radio mode) and TRACK CHANGE (when playing CDs) or 2. a combination of PRESET CHANGE (radio) and FOLDER CHANGE (CDs). Most people prefer the arrow buttons to work as PRESET CHANGE and TRACK CHANGE (which is how they always come from the factory), but that combo's a no-go, at least with Pioneer stereos. As a result, those of us who listen to radio and CDs equally can only use our steering wheel buttons about half the time. Sigh.

More annoyances: the volume button now ignores the first press of your finger -- SOMETIMES (it's not consistent). Also, Metra could have done a better job writing instructions, and placing the vehicle-specific wiring info where people can actually find it instead of burying it in some obscure nether-region of their website. Finally, they could have issued a courtesy warning that for this device to work, your stereo needs a 3.5mm jack in the back -- something usually only found on higher-end models (over $160 in Pioneer's case).

2013 update: just 2.X years later, this device is already malfunctioning -- pressing the volume button now sometimes changes the radio frequency. This product sucks.

Professional installation. I watched as he made multiple attempts. Used another brand called PAC SWI-JACK Steering Wheel Remote Interface. Worked first try. Well maybe this one was a defective unit. Waiting for a response from the seller. Installer said it's kind of hit and miss with this brand.

I purchased this unit along with a GMOS-08 wiring harness made by Metra for use in a 2005 Chevy Equinox. Unfortunately Metra didn't seem to put much forethought into someone actually buying and using two of their own products.

First, the instructions for the AWSC are not clear (especially when compared to the GMOS-08). You have to go online and find an application guide (and that takes some time because you have to choose the correct pulldown menu to get the application guide to come up properly on their website).

In my case, I had to connect the orange/green wire from the AWSC to pin A9 on the wiring harness. However, the GMOS-08 has no pin or lead for A9. So you have to actually splice into the GM wiring harness instead (the point of a wiring harness is to avoid these things). Secondly you then have to tap into the GM A10 wiring harness and splice that wire into the ground (if Metra had only put two leads on their GMOS-08 these two splices could be avoided).

Also, the AWSC actually does not integrate fully with the steering wheel controls and their own GMOS-08. Specifically you can no longer use the "mute" button on the steering wheel to initiate an outgoing phone call via OnStar.

Lastly, the AWSC did not properly auto-detect (even though their website said it would) the 2005 Chevy Equinox system. Specifically the "band" and channel preset 1-6 buttons were detected in the reverse order. Thus, I had to manually program the unit (which is not easy because you need to see the flashing LED on the unit, so you either have to install this OUTSIDE of the dashboard and drill a hole for the wires to get to the stereo unit, or remove the dash assembly in order to see the LED).
