Default Avin Avant 4 steering wheel buttons not working

Can't make steering wheel work with Avant 4. All other functions work fine. Avin even sent me a different Canbus box that didn't help.
My question for people who installed the unit, did it work for you our of the box?
When you went to Settings -> Car -> Steering wheel controls, did you see buttons right away or you had to press the buttons to detect them?
I connected 17-pin main cable in 3 places - to the car harness, Avant 4 unit and canbus box. Extra single wires not used. Did you use the same setup?

Avin support is lacking, installation instructions are scattered in 20 documents and videos.

Thanks.

I didn't see this when I installed. Also, didn't have to do any additional setups.

Sorry you're having the issue.

My Avant 4 also didn't have the steering wheel buttons working. I too received a new Can Bus adapter that didn't fix the issue. I checked settings as well and mine was set to 'SWC key', but I tried all three options (disable, Can key, SWC key) and nothing fixed it.

I'm returning the unit for a new one.

@norcal420 I've searched everywhere in settings and couldn't find Can key/SWC key setting. Where is it? In some other app?
Thanks!
