Hello all !
Finally got my Blueish Silver EX CDTI the week before last (ordered Cosmic Grey but was told after a month that the colour had been discontinued, so plumped for Blueish Silver as they could deliver within a few weeks). Been round the Lakes for a week so it's had a decent run-in now and the Sat Nav has proved invaluable. Really like the colour as well.
However, I traded in a Saab 9-3 that has an Aux input, so I've become used to having all my fave songs along with me on my Ipod.
After Pottsy's success with a hard-wired solution, I ordered the Connects2 aux input thingy, and asked my dealer (Pennine Honda, Ashton-U-L) to fit it when my car arrived (having given them the part number for the loom). When the great day came, the dealer says that they have contacted Honda and have been advised that this will "blow" the stereo (or some such phrase), and so they dare not fit it. I don't know much/anything about car stereos, but I'm a little surprised that adding an additional input would "blow" anything.
So....I've got this Connects2 aux input converter, but my dealer won't fit it. Any suggestions ? Any dealers that have performed this install (presumably you know one Pottsy) ? I really don't
want to go down the FM transmitter route if i can help it, though i'm so desperate for a bit of musical variety in the car that i might succumb. I'm in the process of burning my MP3s to CD, but it's still not ideal.
Apart from this niggle, I'm well pleased with the car, though I've yet to really try out the HFT (i'm not expecting anything special judging by previous posts).
Fantastic site btw !
