Yes. Maestro SW will retain steering wheel functionality when installed with most aftermarket radios equipped with an analog steering wheel input.
Radios with partial support will work to retain many of your factory features and systems using the included serial cable connection. However, these radios lack the display screens for Vehicle Information, Climate Control, Parking Assist and Gauges. No update to these radios is available to support these features. For best results, choose a radio with Complete Maestro feature support.
Both the Maestro AR and DSR1 enable seamless amplifier replacement in select vehicles with highly embedded audio systems. Maestro AR can only be installed with iDatalink-compatible Kenwood and Audison amplifier/DSPs, while the DSR1, which combines Maestro’s AR technology with Rockford Fosgate’s DSP technology, can be installed with any brand aftermarket amplifier.
When installed with a Maestro RR, standard radios will typically offer basic audio feature retention such as steering wheel buttons and navigation outputs, while iDatalink-compatible Alpine, JVC, Kenwood, Pioneer and SONY radios will offer complete retention of all infotainment features as well as display exclusive Maestro Gauges, Vehicle Info, Park Assist, Climate Control and other screens where applicable.

Maestro dash kits are designed for select vehicle applications where the Maestro RR and iDatalink-compatible radios are leveraged to offer a superior look & feel and user experience.

Maestro RR is compatible with most aftermarket car radios. It will retain basic audio features such as steering wheel controls and navigation outputs with most radios.

Just like not all programs will run on every computer or operating system, not all solutions will work with every Maestro radio replacement module. Some solutions exclusively require the Maestro RR2. Additionally, in 2016, the Maestro RR was upgraded to include a CPU with twice the memory space, which was required to support added features in newer radios. The older Maestro RR, indicated by 256 on the bottom label, cannot run the most recent applications because they will not fit into memory. To ensure full compatibility, the Maestro RR must be marked 512 on the label on the bottom.
