Steering Wheel Remote Input – Many factory systems offer control of the factory-fit audio system from buttons on your steering wheel.  Unfortunately, this functionality is sacrificed when installing an aftermarket audio system.

Install a commercially available steering-wheel interface and maintain control of functions such as volume up/down and track up/track down as well as Bluetooth voice dialing. This increases the convenience of using your system and increases driver safety to another level.
