Tried installing this kit over the weekend and FAILED. It seems that the connects2 kit (Connects2 Ltd) IS NOT WORKING.

1. it messes up the display and it doesn't show the info( miles, temp, etc)

2. whenever i switch the car off the display stays on and the HU also.

Till i have a chat with the guys from Connects2 i have removed the HU, installed the factory one back again. Such a shame as this chinese unit is a blast.. it has a built in amp(sounds awesome), gps, android 6.0.1. and all the goods.

Finally made it. The issue was a pin inside the cconnects2 adapter that wasn't connecting to the car's harness. The steering wheel controllers work as expected. Will post later on some more pics with the unit.

Looks like a nice unit, What is the hardware performance like?
I've been getting antagonised by the stock one, after loading up some after market apps the 1GB RAM isn't really enough to keep it smooth, not to mention the incessant warnings that you can't do much about :p

mm... you have to pull the plastic parts carefully even though they "look" tough. There is only one screw, the rest of the pieces are just held by plastic clips.

Hi I hava 2015 civic (UK model), I want to buy Chinese android HU, What Installation Kit do I need to buy? (Left side driver).
1. I want to keep using the ORIGINAL BLUETOOTH and not the bluetooth from the doubledin, How do I keep the ORIGINAL Bluetooth to work + The Bluetooth steering wheel keys (answer/decline calls/voice control?)
2. How can I still control the Original control screen(Change date/time and change the car settings like speed limit etc...) if I am using the steering wheel keys to change songs/volume??
*NO SAT NAV*
The same audio system as the owner of this post.

Its an old post, Soory for this!

Thank you!

They don't work...
1.Why would you use aux? You have BT.
2. The usb cables from the unit can be tucked in the glovebox.. i don't miss the usb inside the armrest...there's allways the option to copy your favorite music on the internal drive and also use a third party app like spotify... i use deezer which i found best for using while driving and it stores the music you listen to..(sounds like a commercial :)) )

I used to have until a week ago a 8th civic and I had the same HU as yours.
Really loved it)except the Bluetooth calls quality it was very poor, thats why I asked about keeping the original bluetooth from Honda.
I want to order the same HU with my new civic, I also used Deezer, Great app.

So I understand that its impossible to use the USB socket from the armrest as charger, right?
Its a new car (Still in warranty) I would not want to lose all its options.

You can tap into the wires but that means removing the middle console... didn't really had the time to see if i could remove the usb without dismantling the armrest.. i am planning that but need some time.

I just fitted a Kenwood Android Auto HU in my 9g. I got the armrest usb working by purchasing this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00IOR86L6/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
and this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00P0E394U/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
open the armrest and pull out the rubber bottom. there are 2 screws holding the usb/aux/12v socket bracket in place so remove them. Tilt the bottom of the socket bracket up and then pull forward and it should release(don't pull too hard as there are wires connected to the sockets obviously). You will see a hole where all the cables are fed through. If you gently push a long screwdriver down this hole you will see the end of it come out of the bottom of the middle console.(handy!)
Disconnect the existing USB cable connector then plug in your newly purchased Usb audio cable.
I tucked the usb male to male cable under the side of the middle console and then fed one end through the hole where the existing armrest cables are routed. Connect this to the female end of the new USB audio cable and then connect the other end to your head unit.
Now the USB socket in the armrest will work:smile3:

BTW if fitting a new head unit be carefully when pulling the plastic trim that runs along side the gear stick. mine was very stiff and I reckon easy broken if too much force is used!

@Frank1984 Can you be so kind and tell if this is everything I need to install this Double din?

Here goes:
Connects2 Ltd
+
Connects2 Ltd

Is this correct or it's something missing?
Thanks!
Don't forget to choose the http://www.connects2.com/Product/ProductItem/CTMULTILEAD.2 and watch out for the fascia to be on the side you drive L or R . You will also need an antenna adapter CT27AA71 and that s it. Post pictures after the install.
