Hi guys I have a catch 22. I want to put my head unit in my AU falcon but I dont want to loose my stearing wheel controls. Is there anything I can get that makes my head unit compatible with the stearing wheel controls?
I love the controls and dont want to loose them is all...

cheers, Nathan

Stinger make an adapter for Pioneer Headunits.

Alpine used to make an adapter, but I hear it is now inbuilt with their latest Headunits.

Lightning Audio make an adapter, to suit pretty much all headunits, apart from a few Sony ones.

It will cost you around $100-200.

Stinger's one is ~$145

Lightning Audio - I'm not sure, but should be exxy.

There is another adapter/interface, which is fairly cheap. It is made in the states, and is pretty hard to get hold of. Only a few stores can order them.
