    Steering controls possible without a HU?

    Hey guys, I have a '04 G35 Coupe and I just pieced together and ordered my carpc from mp3 car. I know they sell the PAC controller for an aftermarket head unit to get the steering controls to work but is there any way possible having them work if your bypassing a HU and just going with a carpc? Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    The SWI-X available on MP3Car will work with the G35 without a head unit present. Developer (I am Chuck)

    Red face Steering Wheel control for StreetDeck

    Hello I'm a new user from Norway, I have installed StreetDeck on my carputer in my BMW X5 2002 model. I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to connect my buttons on the steering wheel to control my StreetDeck. I have read a few threads about this, including Chuck's detailed post about a phidget encoder, but I don't seem to understand how I connect the wires from my steering wheel to the computer. Is there any interface wich I can connect the wires from the steering wheel that will convert the signal to USB?

    Awaiting help.

    As long as the SWI-X works with your car then all you have to do is get an ir transmitter/receiver that's usb and use a program called girder to transmit that signal. you can program any button to do whatever you want. check this out
