Universal steering wheel control interface
An universal steering wheel control interface can be used on most any vehicle with steering wheel controls, to be used with today's top aftermarket radio manufactures like Pioneer, Sony, Alpine, Kenwood, Eclipse, JVC, Valor, Boyo (Vision Tech), Dual, Visteon, Advent and Blaupunkt. It is used to retain the OEM steering wheel controls. It has the ability to auto-detect many vehicle makes and aftermarket radios and it will preset the steering wheel controls to the aftermarket radio automatically so no programming is required. If desired it can be manually programmed so the user can make the steering wheel controls function they way they want them to, only limited by the functions of the aftermarket radio.
