Which AUX-In Solution Is Right?
I am confused. I just ordered a new Civic 2.2 i-CTDi Sport here in Vienna, Austria. I will get it in approx. 2 weeks. I want Aux-In.
I read the Wiki, it says I should get the Connects2 CTVHOX001. My dealer checked and told me his information is that this will not work in the latest Civic.
I emailed Connects2, and their answer was:
> The CTVHOX001 is not currently compatible with the new Civic.
> It is designed for the previous shape Civic with the Pioneer head unit.
> We do offer the AHOUSB001 adapter which offers USB and an Aux input.
> This is compatible with new vehicles with the Alpine factory fit head unit.
> (Not navigation units)
I have no issues with getting the USB+Aux version - actually I would prefer to have USB anyway... what confuses me is that people in this forum reported that they successfully connected the CTVHOX001 and not the AHOUSB001.
Was there a change in head units on the 2006+ Civic, perhaps in year 2008? Which head units did you connect your Connects2 to, and which version was it?
Thanks for any tipps!
