Xcarlink, Dension or Dice which is best?

Well I've have the FM transmitter for nearly a week and its time to move on to better.

Which is the best Ipod interface?

Also where is the best place to fit it?

Finally if I'm taking the centre console out I might aswell fixt the 12v socket. It works fine but is loose any idea what parts I need?

Thanks for your input.

I guess it's one of those questions you can't answer - you've either had one or the other.

Well I've just ordered the xcarlink. Hopefully I'll manage the install without any problems!

Any tips for the install?

I had a loose cig lighter socket, needed a #12. Slid the old one off as it was cracked, new one on and it's nice and solid again.

Also had the xcarlink, (non-iPhone version) and worked a treat until I upgraded to a Double DIN.

Install is fairly straightforward. Someone posted a PDF on here earlier this evening from Honda which showed very clearly how to do it but there are How-Tos, and tbh it's hard to go wrong as long as you are patient with removing the trim!

Thanks for the reply Syx. Will be doing the lighter socket at the same time.

I believe they're all the same across the range as they just connect to the CD changer port. Note that you'll need a "Y" cable if you're installing it into a sat nav model.
