Honda iPod solution at last!!!!
Had a chat with the parts manager at my dealer today and the story is that Honda ARE actually working on an iPod solution for the Civic and are in fact close to releasing it. They have been beta testing the unit for the last month and my dealer expects them to release the product in the next few months.
Apparently the unit is a full integration solution and will mean that the iPod can be controlled from the steering wheel controls and will also replicate the iPod interface screen on the Civic screen (not sure whether or not this means the small audio screen or the sat nav TFT)
Not sure what this means for non-iPod mp3 users out there, but I would imagine that there will be some kind of audio aux in for you to use.
Looks like my plans to bodge some kind of CD multichanger solution are on hold. Hope the product lives up to its billing!
Now I'm off to call my dealer on my HFT to show him how awful the sound quality is - he seems to have a hotline to Honda HQ engineers!
