The steering wheel controls worked fine when I took the vehicle home, and stopped working later that evening. They worked fine the following morning, with no settings or anything changed. This intermittent behavior continued for the next 3 days, until I returned from a trip out of town.
I took my vehicle back to the installer at the car audio place this morning, and got them to check the connections and the settings, they found no issues. While the dash was still apart, I decided to have them remove this unit, and install a higher end steering wheel control unit. The new unit was $99, which considering what I spent on all the hardware plus installation costs, was a no brainer.
I have to give this product a poor review, because it didn't work well for me. Obviously it must not be a terrible product to have a 4 star review average. I don't know whether it works better with certain models of vehicles or not, or with newer vehicles versus older ones (mine is 13 years old). Do your research and form your own opinion, and buy from a reputable place like Amazon so you can return it if needed.
For the ATOTO A6, one needs to use the female connector included with this device, and connect the brown and brown striped wires to the corresponding KEY wires on the ATOTO A6 harness. The device has a female port, but the fellow on support said it would not work. True enough, when I hardwired the connections to the KEY wires.
The ATOTO A6 is not recognized automatically by this device. I had to custom program the ASWC to radio type #8 (turn the car on, hold the volume down after 3 seconds until the LED shows red, then volume up 8 times, then volume down until the LED shows solid red). I could then program the keys to do as I wish.
I then had to bury the device behind the console in the reinstall. If the battery is replaced, I will need to reprogram the ASWC-1. I can't see it, and didn't want it dangling, so I will need to take the ATOTO A6 out again too see the LED. I'd suggest the programming phase include an audible beep, so that the ASWC-1 could be programmed without seeing the unit.
If you have an obscure radio (or some Chinese Android radio) this is the wiring kit you need.
If you have a common radio (kenwood, pioneer, etc.) and a common car the aswc-1 works really well. With it's manual radio detection, it will find your radio by itself. However, trouble-shooting can be VERY difficult if things don’t automatically work. (that’s the reason for the 4 stars).
**HOW TO CONNECT TO THE ATOTO A6**
*DO NOT use the 3.5mm Female input (SWC IR-WIRELESS Steering Wheel Key Control Port) on the back of the Atoto A6 Pro.
This port does not work for some reason.
1. Download the vehicle specific instructions for your car, as well as the "Axxess Steering Wheel Control Interface Installation Manual" from axxessinterfaces(dot com).
2. Follow the vehicle specific instructions to first connect the AWSC-1 to your car.
**Connections to the Radio**
1. The ASWC-1 includes a female 3.5mm connector with a brown and brown/white wire coming out. Use this to connect to the Atoto’s Steering Wheel Key(+) and Steering Wheel Key#(+) wires.
2. Connect the "Steering Wheel Key+” wire of the Atoto A6 to the Brown/White wire of Axxess ASWC-1, connect the "Steering WheelKey#+” wire of the Atoto A6 to the Brown wire of Axxess ASWC-1
3. Plug the male 3.5 mm jack FROM THE ASWC-1, into the female 3.5 mm jack that you wired up in step 2.
4. The ASWC-1 will not auto detect the Atoto A6. (no problem)
5. Follow the instructions from page 12 of the "Axxess Steering Wheel Control Interface Installation Manual" to change your radio type.
6. The Atoto A6 will respond to "Visteon" radio controls. (Visteon is radio type 8).
7. Once you've set the aswc-1, go to your radio.
8. From the radio navigate to: Settings>Default settings>Steering wheel program.
9. Once at the screen press "Reset".
10. Then press any key value, it will begin to flash.
11. Finally press one of the buttons on your steering wheel, the flashing on your radio will stop and a triangular symbol will appear on the key. this indicates the key means has been successfully programmed.
repeat steps 10 and 11 until you have programed all the steering wheel control buttons.

I have had this POS installed and double and triple checked all my connections. I used a multimeter to confirm all connections where getting continuity. Tried firing it up several times just to have it fail auto detect. Poured over the instructions multiple times to make sure I did everything step by step.
The instructions would be a lot more useful if they told what wire you are trying to connect to in the vehicle as well as what pin you are trying to find so you can confirm on the schematics that it is the correct wire.
After reading several of the reviews where people have tried to contact this outfit or have actually contacted them it's obvious they don't give a shit if it works or not. A waste of money.

Also excellent support.
Reasonably easy to fit and install.
Works perfectly with my system.
I thought it a little bit pricey but, I guess, you get what you pay for.
Thanks Metra Access and Amazon.
It's at the point that I've stopped using the steering wheel controls entirely because there is nothing more frustrating than trying to adjust the volume 40 minutes into a podcast only to have it skip to the next track or restart from the beginning. There are cheaper options out there, but this seemed to be the easiest to install and doesn't require programming. Based on my experience, I wouldn't purchase again, though I won't go through the hassle of returning because it's not worth my time to remove it.
Pic attached is exactly as it was out of package. Obviously used. I paid full price for this as such I expected a brand new product.
Haven't tried it yet but whether it works or not, it stills get a 1 star.
I will return if not but if it does it's to much of a hassle to return.
If this was a retail store I would have just turned around and handed it rite back.
Update! It is infact broken and does not work, DOA.
I suspect the last person that had it before me shorted it out or something. Crossed wires or something.
Not impressed, I should have never received this used product as I paid full retail money.
Will be returning it and getting anther one from a different well known car audio online retailer.
This is not metra fault, I've used this unit a before 5 or 6 times and never had a problem with it.
