Smart-Shift sets the industry standard for electronic shift applications and can be installed into any vehicle equipped with an automatic transmission. Smart-Shift travels from Park to Drive in 1.3 seconds! There are 2-styles of Smart-Shift: the first being incorporated into the touch display, and the second being a standalone keypad. When a drive mode key is depressed, the actuator will move the transmission to the selected gear and illuminate the LED indicator. As a safety feature, the brake must be applied in order to move to the selected gear. EMC designed this feature into Smart-Shift in 1986, before major auto manufacturers had implemented anything close to it.

The contoured standalone Smart-Shift keypad (3″H x 5.5″W x 1″D), was designed to complement the Econo-Series console system as a standalone product. Each button features center illumination and universal icons for quick, at-a-glance operation.

The Smart-Shift actuator replaces the factory gearshift mechanism. The powerful actuator positions your factory transmission cable within 1/32″ every time – no missed shift points. It conveniently mounts near the transmission in a weather resistant enclosure out of sight! The Smart-Shift actuator is included as a standard feature with the AEVIT® 2.0 Option A.

The AEVIT® 2.0 system is now capable of shifting in parallel with the Chrysler Pacifica shift-by-wire knob. Ever since the Pacifica was released in 2017, it has featured a shift-by-wire rotary knob controlling the transmission and gear positions; no mechanical cable links the shifter to the transmission. The knob talks on (2) CAN buses in the van, sending CAN messages to indicate which gear has been selected. AEVIT now mimics those CAN messages in the van as if the driver has selected a gear with the shift knob. At this time, Smart-Shift in this vehicle is only available when it is incorporated into the AEVIT 2.0 System display.

Starting in 2018, the Honda Odyssey was equipped with a push button, shift-by-wire transmission. Similar to the Chrysler Pacifica, these push buttons send CAN messages on (2) CAN buses in the van to control the transmission gear positions. The AEVIT system reads these messages and updates the display in real time, as well as sends its own messages when the display is pressed and used to shift. At this time, Smart-Shift in this vehicle is only available when it is incorporated into the AEVIT 2.0 System display.
