  • steering wheel command ??

    Hi I have a new audi tt and I'm intersted to buy one g4 but I want to use the steering wheel command to interface with g4.
    G4 have a cable (brown) to connect to the steerring wheel, I have asked to infill in korea how to connect the cable or if they have a canbus adapter or if I can use a commontly in commerce can bus adapter, but they don't give me any reply so I think this ISN'T A SERIUS FACTORY

    Since Infill doesn't do business at the consumer level, it's not surprising that they wouldn't help you.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

      You will need to purchase an adapter through a normal car audio shop.

      It's the same type of adapter that will be used for any other radio to retain the Steering Wheel controls.

        There is a connector on the back of some G4s labeled steering wheel control. It is my understanding that connector is non-functional. It's not supported by the mp3car store so that is why we don't mention it as a feature in any of our marketing materials. There is a work around using a PAC SWI-X and a USB UART that would work with any car computer including the G4.

          dear mr. Zip.Lock in a section of "photo and caratteristics of g4" in mp3car forum you can see this:
          Here's a listing of the various wires out of harness:
          Green/Black - Rear Left Negative
          Green - Rear Left Positive
          White - Front Left Positive
          White/Black - Front Left Negative
          Purple/Black - Rear Right Negative
          Purple - Rear Right Positive
          Gray - Front Right Positive
          Gray/Black - Front Right Negative
          Light Green - Reverse Gear
          Orange/White - Illumination
          Pink - Attenuator
          Brown - Remocom - This is for steering wheel control
          Blue - Antenna Turn On
          Light Blue - Hand Brake
          Blue/White - Amplifier Turn On
          Red - Accessory


          in the mp3car tha functioni is supported why you tell me that is not supported?

            Where was it stated that this function is supported?
            Have you looked in the FAQ yet?

              What year TT? I have done the integration work with the VW GTi for 06 and 07. It is pretty straightforward to get on the entertainment bus (comfort bus as well I believe) where these messages are. Then you simply need a peice of car connection hardware and some software...

                Can you please enlighten me on these steps i have 06 jetta via CAN-Bus , and i would love to get steering wheel control on my pc

                  my tt is of 2007 (mk2) if you can make a document to explain the operation we are very thanks in Italy
                  Thanks

                    Document to explain?!?! Ha-ha, you guys are funny. I thought this was a car hacker's forum?

                    Seriously though first is the car connection piece. You need to connect to the bus. I will look through my docs but I think one of those buses is pulled through to the OBD port. The pins probably arent in the standard CAN wire spot so you have to run them from there to the pins your device expects them on. As an example normal 2 wire CAN is on pins 6 & 14 on the OBD port. But for companies that run multiple CAN networks to the OBD port you have to find those pins and run it to pins 6 & 14 on the device. As an example on newer Fords they run a second CAN network off pins 3 & 11.

                    Now that you have a device connected to the correct network on the car, the next trick is to reverse engineer the messages.

                    Once that is done, then it is a small matter of software to detect and/or send the messages.

                    I don't like to use these forums as a sales tool but when you get to the software peice, if you want something easy to use and program against email me.

                      It has never been stated that the steering wheel control wire is supported. In fact, it has been mentioned that it is non-functional.

                        Right now Steering Wheel controls are non-functional for the G4 for all US cars, you can get around this right now by buying an SWI-X.

                        We are still working with Infill to get the integrated steering wheel controller
                        solution working for the US and support for the cars sold here. The hardware is there and hopefully will work for some people some day after just a software update. It will only work with cars that use resistive steering wheel controls. This will exclude all cars that use the CAN bus for streering wheel controls. The older your car is, the more likely it is to work through resistive controls. Even if your car has resistive steering wheel controls it may never work with the G4 as each car manufacturer implements thier resistive controls in a different way sometimes even varying between model and year.

                        The best way to tell if your car is capable of being supported by the G4 is seeing if it supported by PAC SWI-X. If it is, it is probably likely to work with the G4, however, we haven't been able to fully test any cars yet and I am really just making an educated guess that this is true. In any case, don't bother asking if your car will be compatible yet cause we just don't know, nor are we at the stage yet where we can begin compatibility testing and there is still a good chance that we may never be able to get the Streering Wheel Controller working for any US cars.

                        If things go as planned, there will be a patch for StreetDeck that will allow you to hook up your steering wheel controls to the G4. Most likely we will not be able to tell you how to hook up your steering wheel controls for your specific car and it will not be a trivial task for most people to figure out how to do it. The best we will be able to do until we build a steering wheel controller install database is tell you generally how they work. For example, my car requires adding an extra resistor in the right place to get all the controls to read anything.

                        If you buy a G4, the only advice I can give you until we can confirm there will be a patch for it is to purchase it assuming the integrated steering wheel controls will never work for your car and the only way to get them to work is to purchase a SWI-X

                          SWI-X works with my Infill T3, so I'm guessing SWI-X will work with G4.

                            he ment if it's compatable with your car, not the g4

                              god_of_cpu I was not sepaking specifically about any product (G4, G5, or whatever). The GTi I sat on had the commands on the bus. If it is a type of vehicle where the steering wheel controls are resistive ladder, then there is another solution. Before I go there a quick rule of thumb on steering wheel controls that we have seen:
                              - VW mostly bus (apparently someone else has seen resistive ladder)
                              - Ford : resisitive ladder
                              - GM : GMLAN (simply single wire CAN) and some J1850
                              - DCX : mix of resistive and bus
                              - Toyota : 2 wire resistive ladder

                              As for how do you solve? We have integrate a WinDAQ DATAQ device into our stuack for that. It is not that hard in that they have a test app that will allow you to watch the signal levels. Find the right wires (the hard part), hook up, watch levels, party on.
