Steering-Wheel Integration for VW GTI MkV (Prototype)
FOR MkV (2006-2008) VW GTI's:
Just wanted to let anyone that is interested know, wireb on the GolfMkV.com forums has created a board that detects signals on the Infotainment Can-Bus for steering wheel button presses, and outputs the button presses to a serial port for future integration into various front-ends.
We currently need a few more people to place an order for the first batch. Take a read here: http://www.golfmkv.com/forums/showth...47#post2236747
For anyone else interested, we have our progress posted in that thread of the various can-bus messages we have decoded so far.
Supported firmware (so far):
general snoop (Dumps what ever is on the bus out the serial port in raw hex)
button decode (watches for just button presses and sends out "Bx" where x = the button number when a button is pressed)
Example perl code and a firmware update utility (yes you can swap firmware on the fly.)
