New Personalization Retention Interface for Vehicle Customization via Bluetooth® Now Shipping from Axxess®

Aug 20, 2019

Holly Hill, FL –  Axxess® by Metra Electronics®  is now shipping a patent-pending personalization retention interface for select Jeep, Mazda, Ram and Toyota vehicles. It is designed as an add-on product for aftermarket radio upgrades so that vehicle owners do not lose control over specific settings when their factory radio is removed. The Axxess Bluetooth® Vehicle Customization Interface (AX-CUSTOM-BT) allows users to access, edit and control settings for many of the most commonly lost vehicle personalization options by using a Bluetooth® enabled smartphone app, available for both Android® and Apple® mobile devices. Options will vary by vehicle, but may include settings for locks, security, engine off options, lights, a chime or other audio options that aren’t accessible from the new head unit. Personalization options are specific to each application and dependent upon what was available in the factory radio prior to removal.

This solution and patent-pending technology is exclusively available from Axxess and two plug-n-play packages with vehicle-specific harnesses, the AX-MAZBT and AX-TOYBT, are also now shipping. The Axxess XSVI-6524-BT is another product in stock now that uses the same Bluetooth® enabled personalization retention interface technology and combines it with additional features to provide accessory power, retain R.A.P., provide NAV outputs, retain the factory backup camera, balance and fade, AUX-IN jack and more. Additional details for each product are below.

The AX-CUSTOM-BT will continue to expand its application offerings and currently works with the following vehicles:

Jeep

Renegade 2015-up*

Ram

Promaster (w/ color screen) 2014-up*
