Posted on: Jan 7, 2019 9:15:00 AM

Holly Hill, FL – January, 2019 – Axxess Integrate® by Metra Electronics®  has announced that 24 new products will debut at CES along with a newly redeveloped Updater App, used to update existing interface products with the latest vehicle data. New products include the Total Control Interface Series™ for steering wheel control and data interfaces, a next-generation DSP along with a “Lite” version DSP, a STOP/START override interface and more. Water-resistant options will also be available for Axxess’ best selling ASWC-1 and its AX-DSP-X, offering more solutions for marine and powersports audio. Additional plug-n-play harnesses for the AX-DSP and AX-DSP-X will cover a wide range of vehicles, including those with MOST25, MOST50 and SPIDF amplified systems. New amplifier bypass harnesses, outlined below, will also be introduced for Honda and Toyota.

Improved Axxess Updater App
The Axxess Updater App has a redesigned interface for a modern look and feel, with improved support for devices and more. For installers, intuitive flow with clear instructions improves the help and support feature of the app. An improved design helps users easily find vehicle-specific products and also access instructions and user manuals for Axxess products. The Updater App allows installers to update any current Axxess interface from an Android or iOS smartphone or tablet to download the latest vehicle application data. As new models or technology are released throughout the year, updates are recommended prior to installation to ensure that the latest software is being used. The improved app is now available in the Google Play and Apple store.
Amplifier Bypass Harnesses & More
Additional new products include an amplifier bypass harness for select Honda 2016-up* (AX-AB-HN1) and select Toyota 2004-up* (AX-AB-TY4) vehicles. For the existing AX-DSP line, two new plug-n-play harnesses will be available for 2012-up* (AX-DSP-TY3) and 2018-up* (AX-DSP-TY4) Toyota vehicles. (The AX-DSP-X and AX-DSP-LITE are compatible with all existing AX-DSP harnessing).
All of these new products will be on display at CES in the Metra Electronics booth #5211 in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center. New products will be online at starting January 8 with additional product press releases at
