Talk about versatile

Axxess's RFASWC adapter comes programmed with the standard volume up and down, “seek”, and “source” selections, but you can also reprogram the buttons for a variety of alternate commands, including answering calls with a Bluetooth-equipped stereo. The rubber “watchband” strap lets you mount the controls in various locations on your wheel — simply rotate the keypad to match the position you choose. You can adjust the strap for various steering wheel thicknesses, and its built-in wireless transmitter is powered by one replaceable CR2032 battery.

Note: The Axxess RFASWC is only compatible with aftermarket car stereos that offer a steering wheel control input.

Custom RFASWC

Crutchfield customer from Donnellson, IA on 8/9/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I only gave 4 stars due to the phone controls unable to connect. But the main reason for this item was to have remote control of the volume . I actually did a custom modification to the case, I cut the steering wheel mount off and then poured a custom base for the unit to sit flat on my console on a 1995 Corvette. It did aeverything I really wanted it to do. The tech staff was amazing at Axxess as I called and explained what was to be done and they supported me all the way.

Crutchfield customer from Saint Augustine, FL on 3/31/2019

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Bought this remote to operate the phone on a Kenwood KDC-BT772HD Radio. I purchased them at the same time after talking with a Crutchfield sales rep. The remote will not operate the radio. I have had 4 or more Crutchfield technical reps on the phone with no success. Also talked with 1 Axxcess rep and no success. Returned the 1st remote and the new one wouldn't work. I gave up. The volume, mute, source and channel changer however does work. Just no phone.

Axxess RFASWC Universal Steering Wheel Controls Package

Crutchfield customer from Knoxville, TN on 2/4/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Overall I'm pretty happy with this. It does seem expensive relative to the quality of the buttons, I wish the center pad was softer like the answer/hangup buttons. As is, it feels a little cheap compared to what it cost. I also expected to see a dedicated volume up/down rather than an up/down arrow. It hasn't slid around on my wheel because it's kind of wedged in there, but I can see how this would be an issue for some. The programming process is a little flaky, but it finally seems to have stored what I want on there. I would buy again.

Followed the installation guide and the Axxess RFASWC worked perfectly! I installed it in a 2008 Damon Challenger 377 RV which didn't have this capability. It works great with h my new Panasonic DEH- S6010BS radio.

Amazing

Ron from New York, NY on 5/1/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I purchased this universal steering wheel remote to add to my Pioneer AVIC-8201NEX for my 2009 Nissan Rogue S, which does not have factory steering wheel controls. I works amazingly well, for volume, radio station presets, source and picking up and hanging up phone calls. After installation was complete, my installer (a local car stereo shop) said he couldn't get the answer and end call to work, he said he called the company and the they stated, my radio was not compatible with that feature. I didn't to get try it out right away, I was busy trying out the other features of the radio. However, the next day, I made a call and tried the hang up button (red button), and it worked! I called a buddy of mine to call me back, when he did, I hit the pick up button (green button) and it worked! This product is pricey but it works really good. Also, my installer stated, he put the 'receiver module' behind the radio and the remote is on the lower left hand side of the steering, it works very well, I have not had any issues with button presses registering. I would highly recommend this steering wheel remote.

Pros: Works as advertised!

Cons: Price is a little too high, but it works great. You do get what you paid for.

Could be better, but it works.

Paul from Columbus, IN on 4/22/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Well, the remote works well enough with my Alpine and recognized it on first try. But the steering wheel strap fastener needs to be designed better. The instructions on hooking up the strap are confusing and not very thorough. Axxesse online install video isn't much help. Seems to be overpriced

Pros: Standard programming easy and quick.

Cons: Price

not what was expected

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I purchased this with the intent to be able to operate my phone on my Jensen VX2071from this control. I was told before purchasing it that it would do that. In AZ it is the law you have to operate a phone with hands free. After all the install and having to call Tech support we found out that it was amazing it EVEN operates the radio stations on this radio. Tech support was great and even offered to return it money back . But I wasn't about to literally take EVERTHING apart to return it.

Pros: operates radio volume

Cons: didn't operate the phone as was told

Remote Control for your steering wheel

Richard from Beltsville, MD on 7/14/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This is about the only gadget in town if you have a vehicle without steering wheel controls and want to add them. The devise comes with one of the worst instruction manuals I've seen and I'd hoped that Crutchfield, who has sold many, might have better experience and be able to provide new tips. So this is an expensive control that could probably do more if only someone could explain it to me (such as my iPhone or remapping the buttons that make no sense like volume up is right and volume down is left). Kind of a disappointment!

Pros: The only game in town if you want to add controls to your wheel when your vehicle never had them.

Cons: Unintelligible instructions and no one really seems to know exactly how to remap the buttons even though the claim is that you can.

I couldn't get it to stop twisting away on the steering wheel when pressing buttons. Poor quality. Never got to test functionality. I am very disappointed as I was really hooping this would work for me. Sending it back for a refund.

Easy add on

Eric from Elgin, IL on 11/11/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I added a nice JVC head unit to my card and trying to use the touchscreen to control it was a real pain. My car did not have steering wheel controls, and there are very few options for aftermarket add ons. The RFASWC unit was one of the few I could find. Installation and setup was easy and the instructions were clear. I now have the convenience of steering wheel controls. There are a few cons however. The keypad is quite large and takes up a lot of room on the steering wheel. I was never able to get the green/red buttons to pick up/hang up my phone via bluetooth, but I think this is a limitation of the head unit. I research this problem quite a bit and it seemed to be a common problem. The keypad is attached using a rubber strap that has 2 sided tape on it. The rubber strap was difficult to use, particularly when I needed to remove and reattached the keypad. A metal or plastic strap that could be tightened with a screw would have been much better. There were no instructions on how to replace the battery in the keypad. I found instructions online, and you need to remove the keypad from the steering wheel to replace it. Finally, this thing is expensive for what it is. I found a steering wheel control online for 40 bucks that was made of metal and had a metal bracket to attached to the steering wheel control, but unfortunately it turned out not to work with my JVC head unit.

Pros: Easy to install Much safer than using radio controls direct

Cons: Larger than expected Rubber strap is difficult No instructions for battery Expensive

Just right size and works well with VX7012. Has all the functionality I need for the basics source, volume, and next/previous. Has remapping functions that I've read doesn't exactly match the instructions but haven't needed to invoke reprogram commands yet.

Pros: Instructions

Cons: I really don't have any complaints.

Great Third Party Steering Wheel Controls

Adam H. from Mount Joy, PA on 3/24/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This is a pretty decent option when considering adding steering wheel controls. The device for the steering wheel itself is a little bulky, but it's the best looking option I've ever found that doesn't break the bank. It was super easy to set up and the receiver was easy to connect. I've found it a little more difficult to program the device to customize the buttons the way I'd like. I feel like if there was better documentation this would be easier. Overall, I'm pleased with the purchase.

Pros: - Easy to setup and install - Just works, haven't had any weird issues or interference

Cons: - Hard to customize/program buttons - Kind of big

Works Great

James from Houston, Texas on 1/15/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This thing works great! Love having it.

Pros: The stereo responds immediately when you push a button.

Cons: It is kind of big on the steering wheel but I don't really care. Reprogramming it is a little different than it says. Once you program it, correctly or not, you must reset it to program again. Also, in the directions, holding the up during programming only needs to be done once. Afterwards, move on to the next button.

Its Ok -- this is work/tweaking still in progress

Fred from Virginia on 1/10/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

My 06 Baja didn' t have any factory steering wheel controls that I have gotten used too over time; so I gave this a shot, while installing a avic-8100nex. The install is pretty simple +12v, gnd, and remote lead to head unit. Install on steering wheel isn't too bad. Over all I think I am happy with it, and I hope I can tweak it to work more like I want. If I can re-program the buttons and such then I think it would go to 3.5 or 4 stars and I would begin to feel the money could be worth it...

Pros: Gives you buttons on your wheel if you don't have them. Pretty easy install. For the most part, it works but needs some tweaking.

Cons: -instructions aren't very good. -steering wheel mounting strap can be tricky to tighten down; both the rubber pull strap and then the screw fastener. -no easy way to remount on steering wheel once strap is trimmed to fit; nor is there a second strap if you want to try in one position for a while and then move it. Not trimming the excess to allow for re-positioning is not really possible as excess covers up a handy mute button on back of control panel. -programming buttons is tricky

Installed In 2008 Ford Escape

SteveH from Tennessee on 12/30/2015

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Unit works as advertised. Installation is relatively easy. Customization is hard because the owners manual sux! The unit works well at this point. I installed it at 330 position on steering wheel. It is a little clumsy at that position, but better than at 2 o'clock. Because of the center post, it doesn't push away from the users thumb at 330. At 10 and 2 it would likely spin around the steering wheel. Overall, I like it but will reserve final rating on whether I can get the thing customized for PTT and on/off hook operations.

Pros: Works.

Cons: Crappy documentation.

Not all bad

JEZ from Carlisle, PA on 2/5/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I do not like the interface as much as the thought I would. When reading the description I believed it would have 18 function I could program. It turns out you can only use 8 of the 18 function, seeing it only has 8 buttons and now the price seems like a bit much. That being said, the 8 functions work well, and it's nice to have controls of any kind on the steering wheel. The drawl back is the same for any remote that straps to the wheel; it gets in the way. If you don't have a problem with that then this unit is for you. Another problem I found is that the two way tape and rubber strap holds the unit tight to the wheel, but I have leather warped steering wheel. The unit dose not slip on the leather on the surface, but the leather slips underneath on the wheel frame, it moves a lot. On my steering wheel I removed the cruse controls on/off switch that was mounted on the left side, I found a switch that would work and moved the on/off function to the dash. Keeping the set/resume switches on the right side of the wheel. I then modified the transmitters body, and mounted it in place of the on/off switch. I would not recommend doing this unless you know what you are doing. Just saying it's an option and the results is like having factory controls.

Pros: Having control of your stereo on the wheel, works well.

Cons: unit is straped to the steering wheel and may get in the way, not good for some leather warped steering wheel

Product Research

Features

Universal RF Steering Wheel Control Interface: The Axxess RFASWC is designed to add steering wheel controls to vehicles that do not have integrated factory steering wheel controls when used with an aftermarket radio with a steering wheel control input. The RFASWC consists of a RF steering wheel control interface module, RF keypad remote, mounting bracket, and wiring harness. The Axxess RFASWC is able to give you, the driver, the ability to control your aftermarket radio without taking your eyes off the road.

Compatibility: The Axxess RFASWC steering wheel control interface is universal and can be used in most any vehicle without factory steering wheel controls present. The RFASWC supports the following aftermarket head unit manufactures; Pioneer, Sony, Alpine, Kenwood, Eclipse, JVC, Clarion, Dual, Visteon, and Valor. The aftermarket head unit must have a SWC (Steering Wheel Control) 3.5mm input or steering wheel remote control input wire (blue/yellow).

RF SWC Interface Module: The included RF steering wheel control module features a built-in RF receiver and connects to your aftermarket head unit with steering wheel control capability. The interface module connects to the SWC 3.5mm input or SWC input wire (blue/yellow) of your aftermarket head unit. The interface module receives RF wireless commands from the RFASWC's remote keypad and then relays the same commands to your aftermarket head unit via its SWC input.

Note: The RF SWC interface module's harness must also be hardwired to your vehicle's 12-volt accessory and ground. The interface module is designed to be hidden behind your aftermarket radio.

RF Keypad Remote w/ Mounting Bracket: The included RF keypad remote features a built-in RF transmitter that sends wireless control commands to the RFASWC's interface module and your connected aftermarket head unit with SWC capabilities. The RF keypad remote includes a mounting bracket and rubber strap which attaches to your vehicle's steering wheel. The keypad remote features six buttons that are pre-programmed with standard commands; like Volume up/down, Seek previous/next, Source, and Answer/End (for aftermarket Bluetooth head units). In addition, you will be able to re-program these buttons (up to 18 commands to choose from).

Note: The mounting bracket assembly features a CR2032 battery which powers the RF keypad remote. This battery is replaceable.

LED Feedback: LED flashes indicate what brand of radio the RFASWC is connected to during initial setup.

Dimensions:

  • RF SWC Interface Module: 2.75" (w) x 0.8125" (h) x 1.8125" (d)
  • RF Keypad Remote w/ Mounting Bracket: 2.25" (w) x3.0" (h) x 1.25" (d)

I don't believe the Blaupunkt Stockholm 230 was made for use in the North American market. Regardless, Blaupunkt is not listed as a compatible manufacturer for the AXXESS RFASWC: "The RFASWC supports the following aftermarket head unit manufactures; Pioneer, Sony, Alpine, Kenwood, Eclipse, JVC, Clarion, Dual, Visteon, and Valor. The aftermarket head unit must have a SWC (Steering Wheel Control) 3.5mm input or steering wheel remote control input wire (blue/yellow)."

Basic functions like volume, source, and previous/next track will be supported with a stereo that offers CarPlay and support for steering wheel control integration (The Pioneer does). I hope that helps!

Q
How would this connect to a Kenwood DDX372BT head unit? Would it use the wires in the harnesses or would it plug into an open slot in the rear of the head unit?

Eric, It's been awhile since I hooked mine up, but as I recall, it works well if you follow the exact procedure in the directions. There is also a customer service line at Axxess that was very helpful. Although I didn't pair exactly the same model Kenwood head unit, I'd be surprised if the process has changed any. The biggest tip I can tell you is to be sure where on the steering wheel you put the touch control. The factory controls are in the spokes of the steering wheel, and don't cause a problem. However, I put mine at a about 8 o'clock, and sometimes I inadvertently touch a button and change something while turning. I recommend placing at 12 or 6 0'clock on the wheel. I would also suggest that when you decide on a suitable spot, that you put some rosin (solder flux) around the steering wheel side surfaces of the switch as well as the rubber mounting ring before you attach it to the wheel. This will prevent the whole switch assembly from moving away from you when you push the buttons. Just simply wipe up the excess rosin when you get it on the wheel. Good luck. Its a good unit although I never completely mapped all the key functions, it beats the snot out of reach and tune.

Q
is there anything like this that can add buttons to a dashboard?

I'm not sure I understand your question. The purpose of the device is to allow you to control the headunit (which is already in the dashboard), from the steering wheel. If you intend to use it as it's designed, I'd highly recommend 2 important mounting steps: 1 Don't position your controller anywhere near a wheel spoke or you'll be changing stations and or sources every time you turn with a finger at the spoke-wheel junction. I recommend top center of strait steering wheel. It's not in the way, and you don't have to look away to push buttons. And 2 Theres no way that you'll be able to tighten the rubber strap tight enough to the steering wheel to keep it from slipping and moving when you touch the buttons. I tried some double sided foam tape, and that didn't help very much.When I get ambitious enough to remount the control, I'm going to coat the entire circumference of the strap and switch with rosen flux that's used for soldering. I've got a hunch that'll hold things in place, and won't harm the rubber or plastic.Just don't get too free and easy with the flux, or you'll end up with a very sticky steering wheel. Good luck, and I hope this helps. BTW the controll works very well completely as advertised.
