Retained Factory Features: The Axxess Integrate AX-HYKIA1-SWC retains the following factory features in your vehicle after you have replaced the stock radio with an aftermarket head unit.

  • Factory Amplifier: The Axxess Integrate AX-HYKIA1-SWC is designed for vehicles with or without amplified factory audio systems. However, vehicles with an amplified factory audio system, will also require the AX-HYKIA-SPDIF (sold separately).
  • BlueLink: The AX-HYKIA1-SWC retains your vehicle's factory onboard BlueLink telematics and infotainment system (if equipped).
  • Steering Wheel Controls: The Axxess Integrate AX-HYKIA1-SWC offers built-in SWC letting you retain your vehicle's factory steering wheel controls (no additional adapter required). Your aftermarket radio must be steering wheel control ready.
  • Factory Aux: The AX-HYKIA1-SWC allows you to keep the vehicle's factory Aux input by using your aftermarket head unit's rear-panel Aux input.
  • RAP (Retained Accessory Power): The AX-HYKIA1-SWC is compatible with your vehicle's RAP (Retained Accessory Power) feature, which keeps the radio on until on of the doors is opened.

Outputs: The Axxess Integrate AX-HYKIA1-SWC provides a 12V/10A accessory output and navigation outputs to make installation easier and less time consuming.

  • 12V/10A Accessory Output: Since there is no 12V accessory wire in the vehicle's factory harness, the AX-HYKIA1-SWC is designed to provide a 12V/10A switched accessory output to your new aftermarket stereo, preventing you from having to run an accessory wire to the fuse box or underneath the steering column.
  • Navigation Outputs: The Axxess Integrate AX-HYKIA1-SWC provides navigation outputs (VSS, Parking Brake, and Reverse) to help ease the installation process of an aftermarket navigation stereo.

Q
Will this retain the A/C controls and display on aftermarket nav system (2013 Genesis Coup with Nav)?
[ e  Oct 05, 2018 ]
3 answers
A
sorry I can't help you with that specific model of car as I had a Sonata Limited 2011 without the Navigation. I will say this though, the instructions provided by Crutchfield and the interface manufacturers AXXESS made it very easy for me to wire my system an install it.
[ Jonathan  Oct 13, 2018 ]
A
I had it installed today and unfortunately it did not. NoI can't see my AC temps or navigation, at least not on the system I chose. Steering wheel controls work but I think that is a different cable. Hope this helps!
[ Tracey  Oct 06, 2018 ]
A
It did not effect the ac control on my Sonata, but I did have issues with the steering wheel controls.
