About the CRUX SWRTY-61C Wiring Interface

Keep those factory options

Crux's SWRTY-61C interface ensures that you can keep the factory steering wheel controls in your Toyota when installing an aftermarket radio. With compatible receivers, you can also keep your Toyota's backup camera, USB port, and auxiliary input. Connect this interface to the wires on your new stereo's wiring harness, and you've covered the power, ground, and factory speaker connections for your new stereo.

You'll only be able to retain your steering wheel audio controls with a compatible car stereo made by Alpine, Axxera, Boss, Clarion, Dual, Jensen, JVC, Kenwood, Pioneer, or Sony. No other brands are currently compatible. Check the Details tab to see if steering wheel audio controls are retained in your vehicle.

Features

Radio Replacement Interface for Toyota: The CRUX SWRTY-61C is a radio replacement interface for select 2016-up Toyota vehicles. It facilitates the integration of an aftermarket radio to enable retention of certain factory features such as the factory back-up camera, auxiliary audio input, USB port, and steering wheel controls.

Vehicle Compatibility: The CRUX SWRTY-61C is supported by the following 2016-up Toyota non-JBL vehicles (as of 2/13/2020):

Make Model Year
Toyota 4-Runner 2020-up
Avalon 2019-up
Camry 2018-up
CH-R 2019-up
Corolla 2020-up
Mirai 2016-up
Sienna 2018-up
Tacoma 2020-up
Tundra 2020-up

Steering Wheel Control Compatible: The CRUX SWRTY-61C features a steering wheel control output for compatible aftermarket head units. The steering wheel control output consists of a right-angle 3.5mm connector and a blue/yellow wire (use the connection that your aftermarket head unit is fitted with). The SWRTY-61C will work with any of the listed aftermarket head units that feature a steering wheel control input using the appropriate connector and setting the interface module's eight dip-switches (see owner's manual for appropriate setting).

  • 3.5mm Connector: Alpine, Clarion, Pioneer, Sony, Jensen, Older JVC, Boss, Dual/Axxera
  • Blue/Yellow Wire: Kenwood, Newer JVC

Retains Backup Camera: The CRUX SWRTY-61C will retain your vehicle's factory back-up camera; the included harness contains a male composite video connector that plugs into the female composite video camera input on the back of your aftermarket head unit.

Retains USB Port: The included USB adapter allows you to retain the factory USB port. This port is handy for connecting your USB devices and keeping your smartphone charged. This USB adapter harness will work with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, except if your vehicle has multiple USB ports or if your new aftermarket radio doesn't have a high-amperage charging port (1.5A and greater).

Auxiliary Input Retention: You also get to keep your vehicle's factory 3.5mm Aux input. The included harness contains male stereo RCA connectors which plug into your aftermarket head unit's rear-panel Aux input. If your aftermarket head unit contains a 3.5mm Aux input, then you will need a female stereo RCA to male stereo minijack adapter cable (sold separately).

Navigation Outputs: The CRUX SWRTY-61C radio replacement interface module provides a VSS (vehicle speed sense), Parking Brake, and a Reverse Gear output to make installing an aftermarket navigation radio simpler and less time consuming.

Q
Does this harness retain the use of all 6 speakers in the 2019 camry?

A
Yes
[ JAMIE  Apr 02, 2022 ]
A
Yes it does, the dash, front and back door speakers will continue to work just fine
[ Jason  Apr 02, 2022 ]
A
Yes it does. The Camry's dash speakers are connected to the front door speakers. That means using this Crux product will retain all six speakers.
[ Daniel  Apr 02, 2022 ]
A
Yes
[ RAY  Apr 02, 2022 ]
Q
It has been awhile since this camry released on the market and I know that many people had issues with the usb adapter. Could this be explained better and is it fixed now?
[ Connor  Jan 06, 2020 ]

A
I had no problem with mine, it works fine on my 2019 Camry XSE, but make sure the USB male connector on the adapter is in the correct USB port (5 volt input, not the update slot input) on the head unit then the other end of the adapter will be a square connector and plug that to the USB input thats on the dash from the rear side
[ Jason  Apr 02, 2022 ]
Q
I see 2 people not being able to get USB to work with the connector provided. What did not work exactly ? USBdrive, Android auto, Carplay ?Anyone else got it to work successfully ?
[ Loki123  May 10, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
So often times, a factory USB is not compatible or strong enough to use Apple Carplay, or Android Auto with. This is a common thing, sometimes is works, sometimes is will not. We generally recommend using the extension usb that comes with a unit to get the best functionality from the unit.

Q
Does this harness provide dimmer/illumination wire for 2018 camry ?
[ Loki123  May 06, 2019 ]
2 answers
A
yes it does, however I disconnected it because after installation, the radio was too dim to see in the daylight, after disconnecting it the radio is very bright now.
[ Dennis  May 06, 2019 ]
A
No Sadly, it's the only wire that's missing. Everything else is perfect
