Corksport steering wheel control VS PAC SWI (problems with delayed response)

Hi guys,

I ordered a corksport kit without the corksport steering wheel controls.

After reading a few threads I've noticed that people have complained about the Pioneer PAC SWI steering wheel controls having a delayed response when one of the buttons is pressed (avg 1 second delay).

Does anyone have any experience with the corksport steering wheel controls? Is there a delayed response when using this unit too? I'd like to save 50 dollars and go with the PAC SWI off ebay, but not if I can get something that doesn't have a delay (i.e the corksport steering wheel controls). I'm going to be installing a AVIC D3 is that makes any difference?

Thanks for the help guys!

From what I've read it's not hte pac swi, it's the interface that pioneer uses for steering wheel controls. So if you're going with an avic (which is what i have) you just have to accept the lag.

The lag is more like 1/2 a second and it's only for the first push. If you're holding down the vol + or arrow up once it engages it will scroll till you let go.

I have a PAC SWI with my Kenwood HU and there is usually a very brief lag on mode change and about a 1/2 second lag on volume and channel change.

This is correct. It takes a quick press and hold, and release to activate. But if you continue to hold, it will recognize that and shoot up/down quickly. (Really only useful for volume)

I have to admit I was a little disappointed, but have gotten over it and now couldn't care less. Looking back on it, I'd still save the $50 even if the Corksport one was more responsive.
