Contrary to my previous post, I kept researching and found that Syx is not the only one to get an XCarLink working with a Panasonic head unit, so I emailed them to ask if the XCarLink will fit my particular Panasonic model. They replied to assure me that it would, so I took the plunge and ordered their new bluetooth box. Alas they were correct- it worked!!!
I asked them...
"Please can you advise if any of the XCarLink products which include a 3.5mm aux in connection would be compatible with my Honda Civic Panasonic stereo? The details are:
Model No: 39100-SMG-E016-M1
Ref No: CQ-MH5678G
ID No: CQ-MH5678K
Serial No: 17316860"
"Thank you for your email.
All of our Honda interfaces include a 3.5mm aux connection and will be compatible with your Honda Civic radio."
So, definitively, from my own experience, Connects2 VHOX001 definitely doesn't work with a Panasonic head unit (as per the statement on the Connects2 website), but XCarLink products do work. Obviously I don't know if absolutely ALL Panasonic head units will work with XCarLink, but anybody who is reading this with interest should check with XCarLink via their website first.
Thanks again to Syx for pointing me in the right direction.
