Posted on: Oct 29, 2018 9:30:00 AM

Axxess Expands AX-CUSTOM-BT Product Line with Solutions for Toyota, Mazda and Fiat
Holly Hill, FL – October, 2018 – Axxess Integrate® by Metra Electronics®  is expanding their vehicle-specific personalization retention solutions for the AX-CUSTOM-BT product line with new interfaces for Toyota, Mazda and Fiat coming to the 2018 SEMA Show. This exclusive solution allows users to access, edit and control settings for many of the most commonly lost vehicle personalization options after changing out the OEM radio. 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.
“Customers do not want to lose control over their vehicle personalization settings when their factory radio is removed. Our solution allows installers to access and control settings that may have otherwise been lost,” says Juan Lugo, Director of Product Development for Axxess. “Now they can confidently upgrade to a new head unit, even if it does not provide access to all of the original personalization menu settings. This solution is exclusively available from Axxess,” Lugo added.
Bluetooth® Capable Vehicle Customization
The Axxess Bluetooth® Interface (AX-CUSTOM-BT) will let you manage these settings from the palm of your hand using the free Bluetooth smartphone app. It is designed as an add-on product for aftermarket radio upgrades when using a vehicle-specific Axxess interface. The vehicle personalization options are specific to each application and dependent upon what was available in the factory radio prior to removal.
