    recently installed a new Sony XAV - 64 BT in my '11 Prius 111

    loved the bluetooth in my BMW so had to have in the P111
    problem is this is the 2nd attempt at using a steering wheel adapter to use the stock P111
    steering wheel controls.
    previously had a Soundstream vR-652NB with exact same trouble...the adapter was iffy at best
    and ultimately the installer gave up with frustration
    otherwise...NO problems with my steering wheel controls...

    I MISS MY STEERING WHEEL CONTROLS of the radio !!:cry: :cry:

    has anyone had any similar experiences or have an ideas as to why this happens.

    not sure of the exact adapter...but I'm told was a universal one..that the installer had "in stock"

    anyhoo...thanx much !!

    i think you posted in the C section not the regular prii section.

    i think most people use pac-swi controls and dont have a problem.

    As of now, *the* go-to steering wheel controls adapter is the Axxess ASWC-1.

    Definitely check it out, the ASWC is way easier to program than the PAC units. Also make sure you get the ASWC-1 and not the ASWC; both have upgradable firmware, but the -1 uses a microUSB port to connect to a PC whereas the original ASWC needs a USB-to-serial adapter cable with a specific chipset.

    Good luck!
