About the Crux SWRTY-61N Wiring Interface

Keep those factory options

Crux's SWRTY-61N interface ensures that you can keep the factory steering wheel controls in your Toyota when installing an aftermarket radio. With compatible receivers, you can also keep your Toyota's backup camera and auxiliary input. Connect this interface to the wires on your new stereo's wiring harness, and you've covered the power, ground, and factory speaker connections for your new stereo.

You'll only be able to retain your steering wheel audio controls with a compatible car stereo made by Alpine, Blaupunkt, Clarion, JVC, Kenwood, Pioneer, or Sony. No other brands are currently compatible. Check the Details tab to see if steering wheel audio controls are retained in your vehicle.

Features

Radio Replacement Interface for Toyota: The CRUX SWRTY-61N is a radio replacement interface for select 2012-up Toyota vehicles. It facilitates the integration of select aftermarket radios to enable retention of certain factory features when replacing a factory-installed radio. This enhanced interface retains the factory rear-view (backup) camera, USB port, and aux input, plus is pre-programmed for retention of steering wheel controls. It also includes navigation outputs.

Note: This CRUX adapter will only retain steering wheel audio controls with car stereos made by Pioneer, Sony, Jensen, Alpine, Clarion, Kenwood, JVC, and Blaupunkt.

Vehicle Compatibility: The CRUX SWRTY-61N is supported by the following Toyota vehicles; with non-amplified factory audio systems (as of 9/17/2019).

Make Model Year
Scion FRS 2012-2016
iM 2016
tC 2012-2016
xB 2012-2015
xD 2012

Tundra 2013-2019
Venza 2012-2015
Note: Does not support vehicles with factory JBL amplified audio systems.

Supported Aftermarket Head Units: The CRUX SWRTY-61N radio replacement interface will only retain steering wheel audio controls with car stereos made by Pioneer, Sony, Alpine, Clarion, Kenwood, JVC, and Blaupunkt.

Steering Wheel Control Compatible: The CRUX SWRTY-61N features a steering wheel control output for compatible aftermarket head units. The steering wheel control output consists of a right-angle 3.5mm connector and a light blue/yellow wire (use the connection that your aftermarket head unit is fitted with). The SWRTY-61N interface module will work with any of the listed aftermarket head units, by setting its dip-switches (see owner's manual for appropriate setting).

Retains Backup Camera: This radio replacement interface also retains your vehicle's factory back-up camera; the included harness contains a male composite video connector that plugs into the female composite video camera input on the back of your aftermarket head unit.

Note: 2013-2018 Toyota Highlander vehicles without factory navigation radio will not retain the factory back up camera.

Retains USB Port: The included USB-TY01 USB Retention Adapter allows you to retain the factory USB port. This port is handy for connecting your USB devices and keeping your phone charged. This USB adapter harness will work with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, except if your vehicle has multiple USB ports or if your new aftermarket radio doesn't have a high-amperage charging port (1.5A and greater).

Auxiliary Input Retention: You also get to keep your vehicle's factory auxiliary (3.5mm) input. The included harness contains male stereo RCA connectors which plug into your aftermarket head unit's rear-panel Aux input. If your aftermarket head unit contains a 3.5mm Aux input, then you will need a female stereo RCA to male stereo minijack adapter cable (sold separately).

Navigation Outputs: The CRUX SWRTY-61N radio replacement interface module provides a VSS (vehicle speed sense), Parking Brake, and a Reverse Gear output to make installing an aftermarket Navigation radio simpler and less time consuming.

Customer Q&A

7 questions already asked

Q
Does the reverse trigger supply the needed 6v to factory camera?
[ Christopher  Apr 27, 2020 ]
1 answer
A
Yes. You will have to turn the camera on via your new head unit. The camera will work just fine.
[ Jeffrey  May 06, 2020 ]
Q
Will the backup camera automatically come on when going into reverse like OEM? (13 RAV4 if it's relevant)
[ Karl  Nov 15, 2018 ]

A
On my 2013 RAV4, the steering wheel controls and backup camera work, but the USB retention adapter didn't work with my JVC KW - M845BW head unit. I read elsewhere that this is because the RAV4's dash port is a combination USB AUX and the head unit can't understand the input via that combination port -- it would connect, then shortly crash. I got an after market USB-only port that fits my dash and connects directly to the USB cable on the head unit, bypassing the car wiring. It works great now.
[ Andrea  Jan 10, 2019 ]
A
Yes, I did not have a backup camera OEM, but when I installed, the camera came up when I went to reverse
[ Ben  Nov 15, 2018 ]
A
Yes the reverse camera start on when the car is in reverse
[ victor  Nov 15, 2018 ]
A
Yes the camera will come on when put into reverse. But it does take a couple seconds.
[ Bill  Nov 15, 2018 ]
Q
I'm getting my hands on a 2017 Corolla iM (previously Scion iM). Will this work on that model? Would like to get an aftermarket headunit that supports CarPlay and want to retain backup camera and steering wheel controls. Thanks

They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate and what you will need for installation. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you.

Q
How would I interface this adapter with an aftermarket amp, and an aftermarket head unit? The head unit is a Pioneer DEH-80PRS, a Pioneer Stage 4 PRS A900, Pioneer TS-S062 PRS, and TS-C172 PRS Speakers, all going into a Toyota TRD Sport without the JBL option. Thanks in advance.
