If the dealer doesn´t want to an ICE shop should be able to.

If you don´t have the original Honda satnav, then you don´t need anything more.

Don´t know what a carkit is?

You don´t get power for it.
There is not a USB version yet, but I think one of our members is lobbying for it.

You need a seperate extra cigarette lighter type 12V connector for power. Connect that to the usb port via an adapter and use the headphone out to the connects2 box.

If you have a satnav car you will also need an extra loom.
It is all in the Wiki. http://www.civinfo.com/wiki/index.php/Universal_aux_in_using_connects2

It is a bit of a DIY job and not an original Honda accessory.

Don´t know if there is a retailer in Belgium, but you can probably buy one on-line.

Sounds like you will have to run it off the battery then.

That'll be me then... http://www.civinfo.com/forum/ipods-...b-jack-memory-card-interface-their-civic.html ... update from Connects2 hopefully next week...

So the CTAHOIPOD001 which is the USB version does not work?

If I go to connects2.co.uk and enter my reg number it comes up as being available for my car.

Connects 2,Car Audio integration specialists
Looks to me like:

1) Purely an iPod adapter, not USB;
2) Listed for Pioneer head unit - our Civs all have Panasonic head units.

The USB interface will allow USB flash drive, USB hard drive, & SD memory card connection, as well as 3.5mm jack allowing any mp3 player to be connected. If playing music from flash/hdd/SD then you can use the car's audio controls to select tracks etc.

The USB listed for the Civic is for the 2001-2006 model which by the looks of it has an Alpine head unit (isn't that Pioneer?). I am chasing Connects2 for a version for the Panasonic unit... it is in the works. :D

OK so its iPod only that's fine but why does it appear as being available for my car when I enter my registration number? I guess connects2 have a problem with their site.

What I'd really like to see is a Connects2 box that plugs into both the CD port for audio and the rear view camera port for video and at the other end connects to a iPod Touch :D

Hmmm, still a bit confused here...

Is there or is there not a USB interface now available for my 2007 Civic EX?

An 250GB USB hard drive sitting in my glovebox would beat the crap out of an iPod for cost and convenience!

Their site isn't up to date - they just list Civic 2001 onwards without the break point for the 2006+ model... :(

Err... have you checked the thread I mentioned earlier? :confused: No there is not... as I said earlier, it is in the works...
