Metra listens to their customers’ requests for new product. The new 99-5028 and 95-5028 step back in time to find the old factory NAV radios in the 2003-2006 Expeditions and Navigators outdated and in need of some new aftermarket flare. The 95-5028 provides a stable set of brackets and radio housing for even the heaviest of new radios. The 99-5028 is all the same stuff with a storage pocket added in when installing a single DIN radio.   No antenna adapter is needed, but a new exclusive harness from Metra, part number 70-1776, keeps the factory wiring unharmed and provides that plug and play install every installer should experience.

Metra has the only answer for the 2013-up Dodge Dart

Metra has the only answer for the 2013-up Dodge Dart

November 2013: HOLLY HILL, FL – Metra Electronics is pleased to announce another innovative kit…
Metra continues to bring exclusive radio replacement solutions to market like the 95-6517HG for aftermarket DDIN mounting and the 99-6517HG for a single DIN solution. These parts are specific to the 2014 Dodge Dart models without the factory 8 inch touchscreen. The flaw in this application is that the factory radio opening is a mere quarter inch too small to fit an aftermarket radio into. Instead of a dash replacement the size of Texas, Metra engineers designed a beautiful trim panel to go over the factory dash after a little cutting to make the factory radio opening wide enough. The flawless high gloss paint on the 6517HG’s trim panel matches up to the factory parts seamlessly. The only way to avoid a wiring mess and to make this a plug and play install is by using the 40-EU55 amplified antenna adapter and the new XSVI-6523-NAV AXXESS interface.

STILL GREEN WITH THE 2ND GEN PRIUS

JUNE, 2013: HOLLY HILL, FL – Metra Electronics is pleased to announce…
Single and double din aftermarket radio installation kits for the well-established 2004-2009 Prius are now available. Both the 99-8240B (Single Din) and the 95-8240B (Double Din) are painted a scratch resistant matte black to match the OE bezel surrounding the radio. Upgrading the basic AM/FM CD player is a cinch using Metra’s installation kits along with Metra’s wire harness 70-1761 for factory non amplified systems. If the Prius has the factory amplified audio system, use the TYTO-01 (instead of 70-1761) from Axxess Interfaces to integrate the factory amplifier. Metra knows it’s not always about the new model cars, when there’s still plenty of green out there in the used car market.

Metra's Axxess division adds new firmware to the already feature packed ASWC-1

May 24, 2013

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

New Firmware Adds Dual Commands

MAY, 2013: HOLLY HILL, FL – Metra Electronics is pleased to announce…
 
“Don’t call it a comeback, I’ve been here for years”….James Todd Smith truly said it best. 65 years to be exact is how long Metra has been designing, producing, and shipping innovative products. Metra is continuously striving to design and manufacture better US made products for the benefit of the installer and end user.
 
Metra’s Axxess division adds new firmware to the already feature packed ASWC-1. The new firmware, available for download on www.axxessinterfaces.com will give the ASWC-1 the ability to program dual commands to steering wheel control buttons. All the audio buttons on the steering wheel with the exception of the volume UP/DOWN are automatically programmed for a primary and secondary function through our Auto Detect sequence. An example is the Seek up/down buttons can now both seek from station to station or by holding a second longer can skip from preset to preset. Don’t like what’s preprogrammed? Take a few short steps to manually program the buttons to do your bidding.
 
 The ASWC-1 directly plugs into the Axxess radio replacement interfaces for as close to plug and play as it gets, saving not only time, but costly errors in the installation bays.  All wiring is done behind the radio (never need to get into the steering column) and there is only one part #, no need for additional CAN BUS interfaces. The best part is your current inventory can be updated using a USB to MICRO B cable (same as your Android phone charger) right in the store. By using the updateable Axxess interfaces, you get the newest parts, with the newest firmware for your customer’s vehicles every time. Do the install now, today, and never have to walk an install due to new revisions in firmware.

The factory 4.3” touch screen is retained, while the aftermarket radio is placed in the original climate control location.
The interface included with the kit retains the function of the factory 4.3” touch screen while adding 2 switchable video inputs. New, backlit rubber buttons control the climate functions while the touch screen climate controls may still be used. The interface also supplies a 12 volt-10 amp accessory lead, retains the R.A.P. (Retained Accessory Power) functions, and provides Navigation outputs (Parking brake, Reverse, Mute, and V.S.S.). The interface is also prewired for the Axxess ASWC steering wheel control interface making it that much easier to retain factory options. The interface uses High Level speaker inputs and retains Balance and Fade control.
 
USB updateable using a Micro B to USB cable via www.axxessinterface.com ‘s USB Boot Loader program guarantees you have the newest firmware available at all times.
 
Use the ASWC steering wheel control interface and a 40-EU10 antenna adaptor to complete the installation of your aftermarket radio.
