MFSW - what aftermarket stereos will work with it. NEW - phones linked to new MFSW

I get asked plus I see lots of questions on Mini2 about getting aftermarket stereos to work with the Multi Function Steering Wheel so I have made this guide.
The latest wheel (with phone buttons) can be linked to various phone kits; see below

UNIVERSAL SWIX
Works with most makes of stereos providing you have an IR remote for them (except hi band Sonys). Programable & can be reprogrammed if you change your stereo.
Has an IR LED which requires mounting and also needs a wire chopping under steering column. See Authorized dealer info for compatibility list.

PHONE HANDS FREE KITS
We now have adaptors to link hands free kits to the new MFSW with phone buttons & in some cases stereo & nav display.

Bluetooth interface; 2 versions available Wave or Boost. This links the Parrot evo bluetooth kit to the wheel & stereo. There is no need to mount the parrot controller as the 2 wheel buttons replace it. Functions; Answer/end call from the wheel, activate voice dial from wheel, call is played through car speakers. This interface is plug & play.

Cradle type hands free kit interface; Available for Boost. Ths links various cradle type hands free kits to the wheel, stereo & even sat nav. Using all the buttons on the wheel functions available; answer/end call, scroll through phone book, select & call, volume. The phone book/caller ID are displayed on the stereo and if fitted - sat nav screen, the call is played through the stereo. The interface is plug & play.
Compatible kits/phones;
Nokia cark91 - 5110, 6110, 6150, 6210, 7110, 6210i, 6310, 6310i
Nokia cark126 - 6100, 5100, 7210, 7250, 7250i, 3300, 6610
Ericsson HCA20 - t68, t68i, p800, p900, t300, t610, z600

We also now have MFSW relays - if you dont have a phone kit then why not use the phone buttons on your wheel for something else? e.g. garage opener, radio mute, starter etc

Mikey,

Thanks for posting a comprehensive list. I might have to get a new HU now, since the P4020 I have at the moment doesn't seem to have a remote jack.

Unless you know something I don't... ?

Thanks much,
DW

Mike,

Quick question, with the programmable IR adaptor where did you mount the IR part? I'm planning on fitting mine saturday.

Cheers

Mikey, what do you mean by steering remote ready for the Alpine units? Does that mean any Alpine that has an IR remote?

Just curious as I didn't think Alpine had a port for hard-wired connections.

minhi, some alpines do have a hard wire socket, my adaptor requires this. The list above is the UK 2002/3 models that have it. I am going to get a list of USA models that have it also.

It appears that no USA pioneer units have the remote fscility looking at their website. If anyone knows otherwise please let me know

If it is a 7998R it should be fine. I just tried to check the spec on Alpine North America site, but its down.

bummer - that head unit is quite pricey here in the us anyways, so i'm thinking of going with the sony cdx-m850mp instead. i'm tempted to just leave the stock head unit in though -- would the sound quality be quite a bit better with aftermarket? probably going to have a couple 10" subs running off my xtant x1001 amp and some boston acoustic components up front running of a quality 2 channel amp... will the HU make a noticeable difference, or could i get away with just staying stock?

thanks mike,
Wes

A new HU will make a big difference. For a start you can use RCA's into your amps (better sound quality) and they generally have better functionality than a standard HU. Also RCA's make running multiple amps easier, they are also less succeptible to noise induction from power cables etc.

Any ideas on a Blaupunkt Woodstock? I fancy the DAB but having specified MFSW I don't want to lose function (Car delivers next Monday! Can't wait!)
