Talking Aftermarket H/U retain steering hands free

I just bit the bullet and ordered a Pioneer AVH-P8400bh for my 2012 Grand Cherokee w/RES entertainment/uconnect option and I know I have to get harnesses. Does anyone know if there is an adapter that retains the use of the voice command/hands free buttons on steering wheel. I already have the PAC audio interface but I would hate to loose the phone/voice connect buttons. Any suggestions?

Re: Aftermarket H/U retain steering hands free

There isnt an interface that retains the factory handsfree phone controls. The VR button the steering wheel now mutes the radio and the phone button doesnt do anything.
However, if you look at the steering wheel interface, you can reprogram some of the buttons.

I don't think that unit retains the factory phone or voice controls either.....does it?
