    Can this updated controller interface also allow for the signals to pass to the default car operations?

    E.g. when I press the vol up botton, pass the signal both to my pc and the car?

    Now THAT ^^^^ would be great!!! I would buy two of them now if they did that (one to replace the one I already have).

    CarPC JoyCon EX support resistance-output steering wheel remote controls.
    These days most of car has resistance-output remote controls.
    But to make it sure, reference owner manual or repair manual of your car to check if it is resistance-output or not.

    Basically remote controls can not be connected both to CarPC JoyCon EX and car audio or other car devices, but it depends on the circuit of the car audio and car device.

    And one way to use one remote controls both for CarPC and other car device is to use two way switch for selecting CarPC and other car device.

    couldn't you still have the old way setup and just tap into the wires with this?

    With the old JoyCon you can't tap. You have to cut it, I think that if you add any wire to another, that in itself alters the overall resistence. I don't know, I'm guessing here.

    So for those like me who kept the head unit this is a bummer. If I could just tap, I could use the volume button to send a volume signal to the headunit and something else (say next track or whatever) to the computer...Actually you'd have to be carefull there, because you'd have to know what the car was doing...maybe that could work for track buttons, which are unused when the OEM Radio is in AUX mode.

    I'm guessing for that to work JoyCon would have to repeat/emulate whatever resistence it reads on another end, and have an output wire for us to reconnect the stock steering wheel buttons.
