Metra Electronics has released a mobile app for the Axxess line of car audio accessories, that lets installers update any Axxess interface from an Android phone or tablet.
The free app is now available at the Google Play store for Android. Installers use two cables with the app: an On The Go (OTG) cable (AX-OTG1AN), and an updating cable specific to the interface. The app will auto-detect the interface, scan the current firmware, and allow the user to force update if necessary.
The app can obtain compatible vehicle specific Axxess Steering Wheel Control (ASWC-1) instructions. Users can change ASWC-1 controls without the confusion of buttons and LEDs. Users will also be able to remap and dual assign SWC buttons.
There is also a direct connect to the Tech Support staff via phone or e-mail from within the app.
