Soundstream VRCP-65

Post by hkduder » Thu Aug 23, 2018 11:05 am

I have a Soundstream VRCP-65 head unit that I'm trying to program for steering wheel control.
The RR does not support Soundstream. However Soundstream tech support said that it uses the same
protocol as a pre JVC "Kenwood" radios.

Has anyone been able to get this to work and able to identify a compatible unit with the VRCP-65?

thanks

Not as far as i know. If you try it and it works, let me know and we will try to get it covered on our website.

I've tried quite a few JVC, Pioneer and Kenwood. Nothing yet. Do you think it might be an analog/digital incompatibility issue?

thanks

If you've tried it as jvc and it doesn't work, then the into the people at soundstream gave you isn't correct.

That's why we don't list it on our site- we dont know what kind of information the radio wants to see for us to control it.

They actually said a pre-JVC "Kenwood". I guess that means Kenwood units before the merger.

JVC acquired Kenwood, so pre-JVC kenwood is just a kenwood protocol. If you flash as "other" radio under both Kenwood and JVC and it doesn't work, then the information they gave you isn't correct, which means we don't have a way to support this radio.
