Axxess AX-ADBOX2 Auto Detect Radio Replacement Interface Control Box
The AX-ADBOX2 interface is designed to allow you to install an aftermarket radio and have it interface with the OEM LAN-Bus or CAN-Bus. The AX-ADBOX2 is designed to auto detect what type of vehicle it is installed and will automatically configure itself for operation. Simply add one of the plug-and-play harnesses that plugs into your vehicles factory radio connectors. The interface retains full functionality of the OEM systems as well as all safety and warning chimes.
The AX-ADBOX2 also retains the R.A.P or retained accessory power convenience feature, allowing you to use the radio after the vehicle is turned off as long as you don't open the doors. This interface has the capability of using the steering wheel controls on your new radio and easily up-datable with a USB connection. The AX-ADBOX2 now has the required outputs for the installation of a navigation radio.
