Metra Announces New Firmware Adds Dual Commands
“Don’t call it a comeback, I’ve been here for years”….James Todd Smith truly said it best.  65 years to be exact is how long Metra has been designing, producing, and shipping innovative products.  Metra is continuously striving to design and manufacture better US made products for the benefit of the installer and end user.

Metra’s Axxess division adds new firmware to the already feature packed ASWC-1.  The new firmware, available for download on www.axxessinterface.com will give the ASWC-1 the ability to program dual commands to steering wheel control buttons.  All the audio buttons on the steering wheel with the exception of the volume UP/DOWN are automatically programmed for a primary and secondary function through our Auto Detect sequence.  An example is the Seek up/down buttons can now both seek from station to station or by holding a second longer can skip from preset to preset.  Don’t like what’s preprogrammed?  Take a few short steps to manually program the buttons to do your bidding.  The ASWC-1 directly plugs into the Axxess radio replacement interfaces for as close to plug and play as it gets, saving not only time, but costly errors in the installation bays.  All wiring is done behind the radio (never need to get into the steering column) and there is only one part #, no need for additional CAN BUS interfaces. The best part is your current inventory can be updated using a USB to MICRO B cable (same as your Android phone charger) right in the store.  By using the updateable Axxess interfaces, you get the newest parts, with the newest firmware for your customer’s vehicles every time.  Do the install now, today, and never have to walk an install due to new revisions in firmware.
