Features

Honda Radio Replacement Interface: The CRUX SWRHN-62D is a radio replacement interface for select 2003-2011 Honda vehicles. It facilitates the integration of an aftermarket radio to enable retention of factory features when replacing a factory installed radio in select Honda vehicles. This interface is also pre-programmed for retention of steering wheel controls.

Note: This Honda radio replacement interface does not support factory amplified systems, RSE (Rear Seat Entertainment), or Factory Navigation.

Compatibility: The CRUX SWRHN-62D is supported by the following 2003-2011 Honda vehicles; with non-amplified and non-navigation factory systems only.

Make Model  Year
Honda Accord (DX/EX/LX) 2003-2007
CRV 2005-2006
Element 2003-2011
Odyssey 2005-2007
Pilot 2003-2008
Ridgeline 2006-2008

Steering Wheel Control Retention: The CRUX SWRHN-62D also features a steering wheel control output for Pioneer, Sony, Alpine, Clarion, Kenwood, JVC, and Blaupunkt aftermarket head units. The steering wheel control output consists of a right-angle 3.5mm connector and a light blue/yellow wire (use the connection that your aftermarket head unit is fitted with). The SWRHN-62D interface module will work with any of the listed aftermarket head units, by setting its three dip-switches (see owner's manual for appropriate setting).

Note: There are two steering wheel control harnesses labeled "Pioneer/Sony" and "Alpine/Clarion/Kenwood/JVC"). You will only plug in one of these harnesses into the interface module, based on the type aftermarket head unit you are installing.

Wiring Harness: The SWRHN-62D includes a wiring harness with a single 20-pin molex connector that plugs into your vehicle's factory radio harness. the SWRHN-62D interface module. On the other end of the harness is a 12-pin connector that plugs into the interface module. The wiring harness also provides bare-wire leads (power/ground, speaker, illumination, antenna, and turn-on) which will need to be hardwired to your aftermarket head unit's wiring harness. In addition, there is an antenna adapter to allow your aftermarket head unit to connect with the vehicle's factory AM/FM antenna.

Q
I really hope I can have the RES in my Odyssey working after I install my Aftermarket stereo. I have an AUX input @ back seat, so could I still use the Overhead screen to display ipod videos through back aux inputs??
