Steering wheel interface

Anyone know of an interface that works for our 1ers?

I know there is a PAC, and a couple more. But the searches dont bring up anything concrete. Thanks in advance!

It says in the subject - steering wheel.

OP - I bought a Metra Axxess ASWC interface for ~44.95, but I have to install an aftermarket deck. Still looking for a double din solution for the 1er.

I think you need a radio that recognizes CAN in order for the volume switches on the steering wheel to work.

The PAC will work but you'll need their CAN interface as well. Two separate interfaces...the SWI-XXX (XXX = whatever radio manufacturer you need) is the interface to your specific radio, the SWI-CAN or CAN2 interprets info off of the CAN-bus and sends it directly into the SWI-XXX. The E82 doesn't come up on their online app guide, but I'm pretty sure it works. Just call the 800 number and ask tech support...they're a good bunch of guys.

But be warned that the can+ and can- pins on their instructions are labeled backwards. Ran into this during my last E90 hu swap.

The Metra interface will also work, and only one piece is required, but there's a lot more programming involved. I prefer PAC for steering wheel integration whenever it's an option.

I used a PAC in my Grand Cherokee, and I find it's got quite a bit of delay.

Trying the Metra AWSC just to see if it's a little more responsive. I'll post results when I get a new deck this spring.

Anyone find a double din mounting solution for the E82 yet?
