I'm looking at Connects2 kits for the civic.

The current radio is the sat nav unit - will it be the same connects2 kit regardless?

That kit comes with everything you need to make the cars currents connections suit an after market headunit.
The headunit will come with the leads that will connect t the connects 2 wiring.

I looked at this option and found you lose the display for any of the climate/heater controls. Also what do you do with the big blank sat nav screen ? I would do it if it was possible for a lead to display stuff on the nav screen from the head unit.

I'm sure you will lose some climate functions with taking the sat nav stereo out?
If you don't lose the clock and climate with the standard head unit why would you lose it with the sat nav one? As far as I can see (pick my car up next week) the clock and climate control are on different screens.

The Sat Nav Stereo has the Jog dial where you can control the Climate through.

The standard stereo doesn't.
Ahhhhhhhhhh. Bugger I'm just gonna have to burn some mp3 cds then

The loom on the satnav car is different to non-satnav so there are several wiring issues that will need resolving when using the connects2 kit. As mentioned above, the big satnav screen will be dead afterwards and look naff. I would really advise against this and fit an amplifier, xcarlink and a reverse camera box to your satnav unit instead.

I'll do some research into those products over the next few days and see what's what. Once again thanks for the replies
