The answer is maybe. That's one of those things you just have to try...

In Topic: SPH DA-120 Wired Remote Voice Command

I'm not sure about the SWI-CP5, but I have an Axxess ASWC-1 adapter in use with my SPH-DA120 and I can definitely get Siri to work by using the "push to talk" button on my steering wheel.

1. I don't think so

2. No, CarPlay can reads text out loud only. I do not believe NEX mode supports any texting functions. 

3. That is indeed USB port #1. There are two USB ports in the back of the unit. The installer should have installed extension cords to make them accessible from the cabin. Furthermore, USB-1 is the port needed for CarPlay. If you have CarPlay working, then your lightning cable is already routed to USB-1. 

4. Rear source is not for the backup camera. It's for expanding the system for rear-seat entertainment. 


Check out the manuals. It's all in there.

Aside from Metra, I found this one by Googling for it. 



I can't really help much with the lightning cable (cord) issue... Sometimes all it takes is a hard restart of the phone to fix these types of issues. 

In Topic: Start car/head unit in low volume or mute

I don't think so. My audio/video receiver at home does that. It's a great feature.


It takes a little effort, but I got myself into the habit of turning the volume low before I shut off the car. It's become second nature. I do understand the desire to automate this, as I automate everything I possibly can.
