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.

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.
Will this work on a Mazda 6 2004 model.
I see it is resitive and it use two wires.
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?
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).
