Sanity Check Before Purchase

I am in the process of getting my head around all the parts I need to install a double DIN.

Fascia + Connect 2 kit :
ebay.co.uk/itm/CTKHD01-Stereo-Double-Din-Fascia-Replacement-Fitting-Kit-For-Honda-Civic-2006/250939231668?epid=1305116511&hash=item3a6d24cdb4:g :2rcAAOSwlzRaX1Bi

Double Din

1. Is there any extra cables I need to order?
2. I have 2009 model with USB under arm rest, can I connect this usb port to head unit?
3. If I get an external MIC, can I connect this to head unit? What interface mic should i get? is it 3.5mm?
4. Can I attach a reverse camera and dash cam? Can reverse camera automatically turn on when reverse gear is engaged?

Should be fine once you have Connects2 kit.

Don't know about connecting to USB or mic, but you certainly can hook up a reverse cam - it will automatically work with reverse lights on. Be sure and get a night vision one - trust me on this!

Good luck with the install, take your time and enjoy the experience. There is a great YouTube video on removing the radio which helped me a lot.
