    I just installed the axxess swc interface into my 2010 tacoma DC. No programming needed after the install, it simply reads the head unit and vehicle, and you are done. Works as advertised, instant sound increase/decrease. I have this hooked up to a pioneer 3200dvd. 5 wires to connect, 3 to the steering wheel harness, a power and a ground. They provide good directions. I believe you can manually program if you want to change from oem config.. quiet happy with this.

    i am also happy with it, but it didn't map some of my buttons exactly correct.

    volume up - works perfect
    volume down - works perfect
    up - seek up / next track
    down - seek down / previous track
    mode - works perfect
    on hook - preset up
    off hook - preset down

    voice recognition - works perfect

    I have left it as is, because I want to have these functions, and I don't receive that many calls anyway.

    This is with a Pioneer AVIC-X920BT

    Thanx for posting this info. I have been reading alot of posts on how people hate the hesitation of the PAC steering wheel module. I have this one but just ordered the axxess one from Amazon for $42 and free shipping.
    Luckily I have not installed the PAC module yet.

    Thanx

    Hey guys, I just got my axxess steering wheel control stuff today in the mail. I've hooked up the red pos. to the remote wire/ black to the ground/ green w/orange to the 7pin, and black w/green to the 8 pin in the existing remote control 12pin of my truck(2011 tacoma). I'm running it to a pioneer 4300dvd using the 3.5mm jack into the correct port on the back of the stereo. All I'm getting is a red light for about 2-3seconds on the intereface mod. and then it goes out. Nothing else after that, and the controls don't work. Also, I have a second hole that looks to be the resest button, but their is no button? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I also installed the ASWC when I installed my JVC KW30HD, it worked perfectly the first try. It is fast and was simple to install thanks to the many write-ups here on this forum

    amoomaw: If I am not mistaken you also have to ground one of the wires on the factory harness, I believe a white/red wire. I will see if I can find the thread that detailed this.
