More details on the Crux SWRTY-61N Wiring Interface
Radio Replacement Interface for Toyota: The CRUX SWRTY-61N is a radio replacement interface for select 2012-up Toyota vehicles. It facilitates the integration of select aftermarket radios to enable retention of certain factory features when replacing a factory-installed radio. This enhanced interface retains the factory rear-view (backup) camera, USB port, and aux input, plus is pre-programmed for retention of steering wheel controls. It also includes navigation outputs.
Note: This CRUX adapter will only retain steering wheel audio controls with car stereos made by Pioneer, Sony, Jensen, Alpine, Clarion, Kenwood, JVC, and Blaupunkt.
Vehicle Compatibility: The CRUX SWRTY-61N is supported by the following Toyota vehicles; with non-amplified factory audio systems (as of 10/8/2014).
Note: Does not support vehicles with factory JBL amplifier audio systems.
Supported Aftermarket Head Units: The CRUX SWRTY-61N radio replacement interface will only retain steering wheel audio controls with car stereos made by Pioneer, Sony, Alpine, Clarion, Kenwood, JVC, and Blaupunkt.
Steering Wheel Control Compatible: The CRUX SWRTY-61N 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 light blue/yellow wire (use the connection that your aftermarket head unit is fitted with). The SWRTY-61N interface module will work with any of the listed aftermarket head units, by setting its dip-switches (see owner's manual for appropriate setting).
Note: The steering wheel control interface features two 4-pin connectors (labeled - "Pioneer/Sony" and "Alpine/Clarion/Kenwood/JVC"). You will only plug in one of these connectors to the interface module, based on the type aftermarket head unit you are installing.
Retains Backup Camera: This radio replacement interface also retains 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.
Note: 2013-2017 Toyota Highlander vehicles without factory navigation radio will not retain the factory back up camera.
Retains USB Port: The included USB-TY01 USB Retention Adapter allows you to retain the factory USB port. This port is handy for connecting your USB devices and keeping your phone charged.
Note: The included USB adapter does not support Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.
Auxiliary Input Retention: You also get to keep your vehicle's factory auxiliary (3.5mm) 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-61N 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.
Wiring Harness: The included harness features the following wires which will need to be hardwired (solder or crimped) to your aftermarket head unit's wiring harness.
