recieved from Honda Today! Worth noting

Hello Paul,
The price increases made do not have any relevance to any upgrade to specifications to the Civic range.
In terms of the stereo's used, we use Panasonic head unit's in the cars.
Can I just make you aware that an iPod link will eventually be fitted to all our cars as standard, but will not be in place until the beginning of March 2007.
If you have any further questions or feedback please complete our feedback form @ www.honda.co.uk or call our Honda Contact Centre on 0845 200 8000.
Kind regards
Mark

I wonder if there will be a retrofit option, and how much it will cost?

I reckon that, as Civinfo members have provided invaluable feedback to Honda, we should get a 'friends' rate.

Failing that it's a trip to John Pease

"iPod Link" is a bit vague though - does that mean aux input or full integration?

I am sure there will be a retrofit option to be honest.

At a cost no doubt, something that should have been standard in the first place.

It wasn't a cheap car to start with!!!

Just a general thought - not having a dig at Honda or other manufacturers.

I wonder if these kits will become obsolete as flash memory gets cheaper? After all a simple USB or memory card slot would be easier to integrate, the manufacturer wouldn't have to worry about a specific MP3 player.

I have just received a Sandisk 1.0gb drive £15.00 delivered - that would be good for over 300 songs.

They said they used panasonic head units, they didnt mention changing manufacturer's so maybe they are keeping the same unit and somehow fitting ipod playback to that?

I would be interested in getting that in my civic, should we be allowed to do so.

you would have thought, with the ex having the benefit of a screen etc... they would also have added DAB onto it.

I would pay extra for that, maybe a ipod/dab upgrade.

Mike - Good point. I use Xd memory cards in my Olympus Camera and although a little dearer than SD cards they are specified as being capable of upto 8Gb (as I'm sure a lot of formats are). This is more than my 6Gb iPod and far easier to carry around/conceal/lose!

If a USB interface is used a simple multi-card reader would enable a vast choice of card formats and allow me to use all those redundant (16~32Mb) .

I have also contemplated building a hard drive based unit but then thought an old laptop would be a lot easier. Any body out there have a hard drive based removeable unit, the sort you synch with your PC? (Linux an option ) Looking for a recommendation or a viable plan

Cheers

I used to have such a devce in my clio, it was a kenwood headunit with a phatnoise kenwood keg system.

Basically, it was a 10gb harddrive in a cartridge, and you plugged it into a device under the drivers seat and you had 10gb's worth of mp3! I used to have about 80 cd's on there.

It was just a matter of taking the cartridge out, plugging it into your usb device you got with the kit, and then delete/upload whatever you wanted.

There is a honda solution, but i doubt its for the civic just yet.

Speaking of iPods and sorry for keeping it to myself but over the weekend Amazon.co.uk made a lovely pricing mistake by selling the new 8gb Nano's for 113.99 delivered!!! They are back to their normal apple-fixed price now hehe - so far everyone I know who ordered have not had anything to say they won't honour the price - I didn't really need one but how can you say NO to the new 8gb model at that price

Not as good as Carphone Warehouse last Wednesday who were selling 8gb Nanos for £0.00, although they soon put up Out of Stock on all the Nanos.

I ould have a question:
2007 begining of March means production date or this is the earliest date when the dealers can get a car equipped with this? (so production date is then mid of february or so)

IPOD Updates

All,
I have been in contact with the factory on this and the IPOD link is underway however not guarenteed. It will be out on all 07 plate cars apparently. I have also spoken to them about in car DVD / TV and so forth and they reckon to have tested this and it not being possible due to the Alpine screen's they use. If this is the case how can *** adjust the files on SAT Nav CD and get good resolution on their pics.... I just dont think they seem bothered.

The stereo in the car is made by Panasonic, and i have also spoken to them, who referred me back to Honda!! After this i called up ICD-ltd.co.uk and at the moment, they cant supply an IPOD link either..... I might just buy the Jazz's IPOD lead and make one my self and then sell them to you lot at trade prices....

As for the folding mirrors, a plan is underway and when i get my car on Thursday it will be stripped Saturday and Sunday to get this working on lock and unlock of the car via key.... Again pics and parts will be avaialble via myself at trade prices.

I have one last contact to call regarding the DVD / TV and will get an update on the IPOD asap so we can start to listen to our tunes whilst we drive and not just cr!p CD's

Sounds great. I will get a 2007 model in January. Can you confirm the Ipod link will be on all 2007 models?

Is it only for Ipod or does it have aux-in too? (Don't have an Ipod)
