PAC Introduces New RadioPro Headunit Replacement and Steering Wheel Control Interfaces at 2013 CES
Pacific Accessory Corporation® Showcses Its RadioPro Line of Patented Radio Replacement/ Steering Wheel Control/OEM Feature Retention Kits to CES Visitors this January
Combining the brand’s most popular radio replacement modules and its patented SWC interfaces into a single SKU, these new RadioPro kits facilitate the replacement of an automobile's original factory radio with an upgraded aftermarket radio. Interfacing seamlessly with the vehicle’s computer data bus system, these RadioPro kits ensure retention of important safety and convenience features such as rear seat entertainment, steering wheel controls and factory amplified audio systems (if equipped).The RP4-GM11 is engineered for use in select GM vehicles (2000 to 2011) with Class II data bus with 12-pin and 24-pin harnesses; the RP4-GM32 is for select GM vehicles (2012 to 2013) with a 29-bit data bus and a 44-pin harness, and the RP4-GM41 is for select GM vehicles (2012 to 2013) with a 29-bit V2 data bus and a 44-pin harness.
In addition to retaining entertainment features and steering wheel controls, these RadioPro kits also maintain functions such as RAP accessory output, outputs for connection to a navigation radio and speed, reverse and emergency brake outputs. Each kit will work right out of the box with most headunit brands and can be quickly updated (if needed) from the PAC website (www.pac-audio.com) using a PAC-UP USB adapter. Each RadioPro kit (MSRP $199.95) comes with a RadioPro4 module, plug-and-play harness, SWC harness and an instruction manual.
According to Brett Riggs, Vice President of Engineering for PAC parent company, AAMP of America, “Here at PAC we understand that time and inventory are important to today’s shop owner and installer. That’s why we designed our RadioPro kits as an all-in-one solution that combines several existing PAC products into a single, convenient interface that is easy to install and requires no programming. This makes installations quicker and easier, saves confusion about what integration modules to use on a job, and makes it less expensive to carry the inventory needed.”
The RP4-GM11, RP4-GM32 and RP4-GM41 are being unveiled for the first time at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show. To learn more, please visit PAC at booth 509, LVCC North Hall.
