Harman Kardon Drive 'n' Play

Hello,

Just bought the above ipod connection kit for my civic.

Halfords selling it for 99 plus fitting but bought it from ebay for 25!!

According to the bloke in Halfords, this is a very decent ipod connection kit and especially looks really good for the Civic with the blue lighting etc..

Does anyone know of anywhere in the Bolton / North west area that could fit it for me cheaply? Maybe even a member on here?

Thanks

I presume you still need a Connects2 box to connect that to the head unit?

Looks like it is a dual 'interface' job. Seems it has an inbuilt FM transmitter so you can go the cheap route of iTrip style, or there is also a 'line out' that you could patch to a connects2 box. There is a pretty comprehensive description of it here:

Oh well, that link did not seem to work, sorry. I searched for it on ebay and found it quite easily though. The seller was 'iceclearout' if that helps.

I have this kit in my passat its better than the honda kit as you can control the ipod better and get track read out on the screen .
having said that I would not use the fm link as the sound quality was apalling . connect with a connects 2 box though through an aux input and great quality.
A good deal you got apart from I got mine fitted at halfords for £80 all in including the connects 2 box and fitting . so I am happy too !
Passat goes tomorrow as it is a company car, looking forward to going shopping for a new accord perhaps but for now the civic or my MK1 Mx5 for work. for the summer!

Here's a couple of pictures of mine installed. There's a few others who have this set up now and it works pretty well.

It does come with an FM connection but from the looks of it this connects direct to a normal aerial line (yet another thing the Civic doesn't have), so it would take some creative wiring to fit this way. Best option is the Connects2 box, and will give a better sound.

Thanks for the photo's but not too impressed. The screen on the dash wouldn't work in any CTR because it would be in the way of the sat-nav screen and the radio screen
