    Aftermarket add-on steering wheel remote?

    Hello!

    I have looked for the past hour for an add-on steering wheel remote. I think I've seen one packaged with an aftermarket deck a long time ago. I really would like to add the functionality of a steering wheel remote.

    Anyone know of something that I could use? All I've seen so far are bridges between stock wheel remotes and a carPC.

    are you talking about a remote that clips onto the steering wheel or using the buttons in the steering wheel that control the OEM radio

    The latter. I have no buttons on my steering wheel besides cruise control. I would like to find something that clips on to the steering wheel in some manner.

    Hello.
    I guess you need something like these.
    Most of these are resistance output, so you need a interface to connect them to CarPC's USB port.

    i think he wants something like this

    http://www.crutchfield.com/ISEO-rgbt...-CD-SR100.html

    the link states that it's infrared, but i'm not sure because i've never had one, but if it is infrared you can use girder to map the buttons to a keyboard key

    Those look great actually, and there is a lot of them. Is there a store that manufactures them? Link?

    Edit: I looked at the source website for the picture (http://rcjoyeng.cafe24.com/) and I have been there before, but looking around I didn't see those products listed at all.

    Thanks as well - I am wary of infrared because I've never really dealt with infrared on a pc and it sounds messy. I've seen no shortage of resistance based bridges as well.
