Modern cars have heavily integrated stereos. In fact, they're far more than stereos, because what is now referred to as infotainment includes the nav system, OnStar, cell phones and their Bluetooth connectivity, iPod integration and often the driver information system that's got many hooks into the actual operation of the car. Which is cool, but jailbreaking that system to add custom functions, like an extra input or an eardrum-popping sound system is far more complex than it used to be.
Axxess is dedicated to demystifying the entire paradigm, and provides plug-and-play solutions, from a simple line-level input cable for an iPod to a set of networked steering-wheel controls for vehicles that were never offered with control buttons in the wheel. And if your vehicle did have buttons on the wheel to control the stereo, odds are Axxess' integration module will actually program itself for the proper button functions, making installation a snap.
Keeping up isn't easy: that's why many of Axxess Integrate's solutions are equipped with USB ports to allow them to be updated by a laptop computer. That way, a module can serve many model years' worth of vehicles. And older modules are never obsolete when a new vehicle is introduced. Axxess' website will have downloads available promptly to update their products, so they'll never be out of date.

I originally bought this item because i was obviously was doing a after market stereo Install in which first off, the Item shipped and I got it the next day due to great support from my rep (Robert Buhl). After i received my item the next day I found out that it did not fit my vehicle due unknown reasonâ€™s (car was imported from Mexico to US-California) (2009 Jeep Patriot) I then was able to return the Item with flawless support from (Latoya Jackson) customer care specialist. I Do Plan to do business next time around, you guys rock!! At the end I was guided to the correct Item on for my vehicle (turn out the wire harness I needed was for a older model 2000-2002 wire harness)- again not sure why this vehicle had older wiring in it. But, the Problem was solvedâ€¦ thanks again guys!!

This product worked great! The wires are labeled and were pre-cut and ready to be connected to the aftermarket stereo wire connections. It was a very simple project. It works very well and isn't that loud. It's worth the buy!
After removing the cable assembly from the package, I visually inspected the cabling and connections. It was flawless. Installed it in my stereo and connected my iPod. It played without any glitches.
I had Best Buy, guy put it in and it synched up like a charm. It's been a week now since I put it in and things are going great. Only issue I have is that I can't control my "preset" stations. This was the best for aftermarket radio control! I've always wanted to be able to control my unit with steering wheel control and now I can. Way to go! I would recommend this to everyone.

There were no trouble with fitting this turn-on adapter under my dash. And all the plugs fit well. It isn't necessary for you to be professional installer to connect it.

After I purchased the aftermarket head-unit I lost the connection with my steering wheel controls. This unit does everything it advertised. Very helpful thing.

After installing it to my OEM stereo it works great with the Parrot hands-free bluetooth system. Just get your stereo out, connect the plugs and get it back. Works perfect!
