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, Blaupunkt, Clarion, 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.

CRUX SWRTY-61C Wiring Interface

Crutchfield customer from Lincoln, NE on 6/20/2019

2018 Toyota Camry

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Works Well, integrates nicely into the 2018 Camry this was put into. Steering Wheel controls work well and the instructions are very clear how to get it to work. Not a very difficult harness either, easy enough to make fit and not a whole lot of wiri g to do. Only thing I can see as a problem is that there are a couple of features missing like mute function and illumination wire. Not a big deal overall but beware that those are a couple missing features.

Pros: Works Well Easy Integration

Cons: Missing a couple of features that would be nice to have otherwise.

Exactly what I needed

Crutchfield customer from Los Angeles, CA on 5/3/2019

2019 Toyota Camry

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I purchased this needing it to retain my factory settings. My vehicle is a 2019 Camry with no supreme sound. No local shops had the harness and they were guessing, one shop didn't even wanna touch my vehicle because it was too new. So I did it myself. This harness came with everything I needed and was color coded to make things alot easier took me a good hr to make a connection and very happy with the outcome even have my steering controls

Pros: Color coded and diagram made everything easier to plug and play Even came with pdf manual to to removal and installation of radio housing which I did not need

Cons: None comes to mind

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 vehicles (as of 1/16/2019).

Make Model  Year
Toyota Avalon 2019-up
Camry 2018-up
CH-R 2018-up
Mirai 2016-up
Sienna 2018-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). There is also SWC adapter for aftermarket radios with a 3-wire steering wheel control input. 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
  • Blue/Yellow Wire: Kenwood, Newer JVC
  • 3-Wire Adapter: Other aftermarket radios with SWC Key 1, SWC Key 2, and SWC Ground wires

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 port does not support Android Auto or Apple CarPlay.

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
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 ?

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 ]

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.
