    OK, I ordered one of these and just hooked it up an hour ago and I have to say so far it has been amazing. I've struggled with getting my SWC working ever since I built my carPC and I think I have finally found the solution. This was easy to setup and the software is easy to use. I'm running windows 7 so I thought I might run into some issues but so far it is working great. For $30 this is a great SWC solution.

    Speed Sensitive Volume?

    I know I can use the Joycon to convert the steering wheel controls to USB for my carputer, but what about the speed sensitive volume? I have grown quite attached to this option and I would like to incorporate this into my carpc. I am pretty sure it can be done by purchasing 2 Joycon controls. Is it possible with only 1? I am going to take a wild guess and say that it is possible with 1 as long as the frequency that the SSV uses is not used by the steering wheel controls.

    Your easiest option might just be to use the usb GPS for that. It's only about $10 more and you have the added functionality of GPS.

    i have 1 of these, and i can say it is one of the best accessories i have bought for my carputer, it is easy to program, once you get used to it, i have used it in a 2001 nissan primera, and i am currently installing it into my steering wheel controls of my 1997 p38 range rover. (i even bought a secondhand steering wheel with radio controls, as mine did not come with this option)

    there is so much more it does than advertised, there is a mode button, so you can change the function of a button with use in different programs.

    it can be used with 3 wire systems, as long as there is a common wire

    I've just installed my JoyCon on my windows 7 carpc. I used an old Sony Remote I had lying around, and it was relatively easy to program.

    This is the remote and my Joycon setup (the green thing with the black and white wires). I used a radio shack mini jack and some computer fan plugs. The USB cable is the only thing missing from the picture.

    I got a problem though: Joycon does not let the computer go to hibernate or sleep mode. It goes to sleep/hibernate and immediately wakes up.

    I tried to uncheck the ( ) allow this device to wake the computer up in the device manager; to no avail. Maybe it's the application running in the taskbar? Maybe I should try to use Xport, does that work on Windows 7? Will see...

    Also, this Sony remote (Sony RM-X2S) has one or two more buttons that Joycon does not pickup with one wire, but it does with the other. I use the one that picks ups 10 buttons total, leaving some push/rotate movements aside (disc change button). So how can one connect 3 wires to Joycon to be able to use all the buttons?

    Cheers,

    RH.

    thats it, i used a 250ohm and a 500ohm resistor though, mainly because i didn't look at the website, i connected 4 wires doing this way, so i can use all the buttons on the steering wheel (dont have cruise, so i can use them buttons to control the computer aswell).
