Change Alpine premium audio for Honda connect system.
Hi guys. A new member here so apologies if there has been a post on this item.
I have a pre facelift 9th gen civic with the Alpine premium audio sat nav with the sub in the boot and it has the preamp. I have two options to what I want to achieve. And want to go with the easiest if possible.
1st is it possible to change the Alpine unit for the newer Honda connect system ? Is it a straight swap ? And do I lose turn by instructions or any functionality on the imid or steering wheel ? And does it have to be recoded by Honda ? I have seen some of the Honda connect systems on eBay for about 200 pounds
2nd. I’ve looked at some head units from Pioneer for around the 200 pound mark. I would probably get it installed at the car audio shop. Do you lose functions with an after market unit ? Like the imid and steering wheel controls?
Also I just remembered (apologies for so many questions) I have a parking camera. So would I lose this display ?
