the top link show the connection plugs, so will these fit the EX head unit?


ive emailed the second like and they said it would fit, but offer a full money back if it doesent, so i take it they aint 100% sure.

both will charge the ipod which is what i really want.

I was looking at the 1st one also - Maybe Pottsy can tell whether it's the same connector?
It is the same connector, it's standard across most new Honda's/Acura's, the issue is the wiring configuration the same! I fairly certain it is, as the CD multi-changer is again, the same for most models.

See the connector for the connects2, it's the same as the one on ebay!



I know for fact the connects2 works as I've fitted it to my EX :D



Update - After a bit of research on the internet, it does seen the connector is now standard on all Honda's i.e the pin configurations are the same. The diagram below show's the pin designations:

However, it does seem some logic is required by the HU, so it's not as simple as splicing into the R+/R-, L+/L- to get an aux in. This is because there has to be a signal that tells the head unit that the CD changer is there, and unless you know what the protocol for that signal is, you're never going to get the head unit to switch over

The third party products like the connects2 and the item on ebay must apply that signal through one of the other pins.
