    It's been a while now, but I think I checked that and I don't believe variable resistance is output from the CHY4, which is why I got the SWI-PS. I've been using this setup for many months now and haven't run into any problems so far.

    Hate to bring threads back from the grave, but this is too close to home. I've been thinking about installing a system in my challenger since I had my first one (one of the first 09 srts to hit) and now have a 2010 srt in plum crazy.
    I have my computer (using a mac mini) and was planning on fabbing up a custom mount. I want to have a sort of swivel mount that goes over the current mygig screen. Keep both in use while keeping a clean appearance.
    Being someone that has taken all of this apart, what do you think about maybe some sort of a plate that can be slid to the right of the mygig? How is the OE nav unit secured to the dash? Are there any screws/bolts on the side of the enclosure once you pull it out that I would maybe be able to secure the type of mount I'm thinking of? I'm gonna have to go into photoshop to mock up what I'm talking about to give you guys a better idea, but I'm thinking of a thin plate that can piggy back off of the current screws that are in there, leading out to a swivel with a mount made up for the back of the screen I decide to use.
    I'm either going in that direction, or with something that will let me slide the screen down below the current screen. I'm definitely looking to keep everything stock in place, and would much rather not have to drill.

    Let me know what you think of my ideas, if you still were open to changing your system up a bit and wanted the stock unit back at any point I'm sure once I get this figured out it wouldn't be too much trouble to have a second mount made up.

    I'm having a bit of a hard time envisioning what you are trying to do without that Photoshop mockup. That said, I just pulled the housing off to double check, and my touchscreen is held into place by 4 screws (top right, top left, bottom right, bottom left). I even pulled the bezel off and took a picture of it for you..see attached image.

    Awesome, thanks for the pic. Is that the same location the stock unit is mounted? Those same 4 screws? If so I may be able to do this... I'll work on that photoshop draw up in a little bit when I have some free time to geek out in photoshop for a couple hours.

    It should be the same screws and location, if my memory serves correct.

    Challenged, I'm working with the same adapters (C2R-CHY4, SWI-PS and JoyCon EX) for my Jeep but when I cut open my SWI-PS stereo wire there are essentially three wires, red, white and the copper ground. What did you do with the white wire in the SWI-PS stereo cable, is it not connected?

    Thanks much!

    That sounds reasonable, although I'm not positive, since it's been a while.

    Looks like the red and white wires in the SWI-PS are both data lines. I think the red and white wires need to connect to the white wires on the JoyCon Ex on channels A and B respectively. The copper wire in the SWI-PS needs to connect to the two black wires from channels A/B on the JoyCon Ex. I got this info from another thread but havent had the chance to try it out yet. I'll let you know how it goes.

    This is a great thread, thanks to the OP and those who chimed in. I have an 06 Dodge Magnum Car PC project I'm planning, so the info here is invaluable (same issues i.e. CANBUS, factory amp, etc.). But there is so much info here I'm kind of lost in the end. Can someone sum up a little/provide advice?

    Like I said, I have the 6-speaker factory amp Boston Acoustics pkg in the car. I have previously replaced the factory HU with a JVC (which will be replaced by the Car PC), so I already have the PAC Audio C2R-CHY4, SWI-CAN, and SWI-JACK modules. The part I am lost about is interfacing the PC audio to the car, and the best way to go about the steering wheel control connection.

    It sounds like I need an amp to go in between the PC and the C2R-CHY4? Can someone please provide a detailed description or diagram for how to hook this up?

    And I'm just plain lost on the best way to keep the steering controls.

    Thanks
