Mercedes-Benz Radio Replacement Interface: The CRUX SWRMB-57M is a radio replacement interface for select Mercedes-Benz vehicles. It facilitates the integration of an aftermarket radio and enables retention of factory features when replacing a factory installed radio. This interface is also pre-programmed for retention of steering wheel controls.

|SLK Class (R171)||2005-2008|
Note: This interface does not retain the factory Bluetooth or Sirius Satellite Radio.
Steering Wheel Control Retention: The CRUX SWRMB-57M 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 SWRBM-57 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 provided. One is labeled for Alpine, Clarion, Kenwood, and JVC. The other is labeled for Pioneer & Sony. You will only use one of these harnesses based on your type of radio.
Navigation Outputs: The CRUX SWRMB-57M radio replacement interface module provides a VSS (vehicle speed sense) and a Reverse Gear output to make installing an aftermarket Navigation radio simpler and less time consuming.
