    You can use your steering wheel controls both for car PC and car stereo.

    BSGr is a resistive button signal generator for the resistive controlled car stereos.

    When the car PC is turned off, the steering wheel control need be used for car stereo.
    If you set a preset as a boot preset, the preset works automatically when the USB connection is disconnected.

    3. Using CarPC JoyCon Exd and BSGr only as a steering wheel control adaptor
    If you want to use CarPC JoyCon Exd and BSGr only as a steering wheel control adaptor for an aftermarket stereo, remove the USB connector after configuration, and supply 12V power(ACC) to CarPC JoyCon Exd. Then CarPC JoyCon Exd works as a steering wheel control adaptor for an aftermarket stereo or a different kind of OEM stereo.
