I think it cannot be used in Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge cars. In my 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee, the commands from the steering wheel to the factory radio are sent through the PCI BUS. The controls on steering wheel are resistive type, but are routed to the PCM (Powertrain Control Module) that converts it to PCI BUS. The only way, unless someone knows ho to convert PCI bus msg in resistive, is to connect the JoyCon directly to the input to PCM, but it is very dangerous. You must to splice the wires on PCM or remove the airbag. Any ideas ?
According to their website, the 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee works with the SWI-PS from PAC Audio. Here's the post earlier in this thread where I discuss the fact that it allowed me to use the Joycon on my 2010 Challenger. http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/inpu...ml#post1383774 Here's the info from PAC Audio on the SWI-PS: http://www.pac-audio.com/productDeta...&CategoryID=29
And here's my original post discussing the SWI-PS in my install thread: http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/newb...ml#post1378041
Hi Challenged...thank you! This mean that I can plug directly the Pac-Audio SWI-PS to the wire from the PCI Bus and connect Joycon input to the Jack in output to the Pac-Audio SWI-PS ? That's all ?
I'm not positive which wire you're going to need to hook the SWI-PS up to on a Grand Cherokee, but that's the idea. The SWI-PS decodes the vehicle specific network data and converts it to resistance output. My install was a little different because I plugged the SWI-PS into another PAC-Audio device that decoded the factory amplifier controls, so the wiring technique is going to be a little different on your car I guess.
Just ordered one, hope it works! I'll let you know! Grazie! :yo:

EDIT: Sorry, I just realized the files for both XP and 7 are in the first post. Can't wait to try this out this afternoon, I love your product.
Sorry but Multimedia key can be supported only by hardware. Original CarPC JoyCon can not support multimedia key.
Only CarPC JoyCon EX supports Multimedia key by hardware.
And the software JoyCon Explorer is free.
You can always download the latest version at this link
I have a chevy HHr. I purchased the Axxess GMOS-LAN-04 adapter and cannot figure out which wires I would use to wire it up to the Joycon Ex? I was hoping out of the bunch of wires one would have this info. I do see one for the Volume Level based on my speed, but I don't think that would be it?
where is resistive wire in bmw e46 99 where I connect Joycon?Thanks
CarPC joycon is essentially a USB keyboard for the computer, right?
So extraaha, can you develop a bluetooth version? I wonder what could be done with this to control an iPad, for instance. I know you can connect a bluetooth keyboard, or a usb one, to the iPad, but I think in this case it would be more elegant to use bluetooth.
Not sure how you control iTunes via keyboard, but it should be possible. A way to change tracks+transport buttons (play/pause/stop/FF/RWD) on the ipad via steerring wheel remote would be awesome, and perhaps a good market for you guys?
