Aside from the capacity of the card itself, are there any limitations to the number of songs or folders one can use on the 2006 Navi PCMCIA Mp3 feature?

If this is the right website we could learn something quite interesting. So interesting I don't even understand the question. [smilie=confuzzled.:

It's either from a 'cousin' from across the pond or else they know a lot more about the head unit than anyone else using this forum :?

I understand every single word of the title :D

It's just that when they got put together like that, all meaning disappeared (for me) :oops:


PS, and with absolutely NO disrespect intended, if Dejas is indeed from across the pond, he's the only one I've every come across to use 'one' like that :D

Hmm. If by across the pond you mean American, then yes. I didn't realize this was a European forum. On the North American edition of the 2006 Honda Civic Si, the on board navigation system allows for a PCMCIA card adapter to play MP3 files. I wanted to know if there was any limitation to the number of files used. Someone on another forum suggested 99 files per folder, 999 songs total.

As for the use of "one"--maybe that is just American parlance. It is used to mean "a certain person the specific individual of which is not relevant." For example "One must know these types of things when one is King."

We say "one" in that way too, not sure what TTDegs is on about!

PCMCIA -- are you sure about that? How does this work?

I was being nice! :D

If one was to use the Queen's English properly, one would indeed use it in the manner described :)

However, most of us don't, and would have written the initial question as "...number of songs or folders you can use on..."

As mentioned, with no disrespect intended, whilst I've come across some UK residents who would use "one", I've yet to come across an American who would.

That was it really :)

Yes. It is actually a pretty clever solution. So you are making a new car and you want your drivers to be able to play mp3 files from stored media. But which stored media do you allow? And what do you do about stored media that is developed after your car's release? Well, laptop computers have the exact same problem and they solve it by creating a new interface called PCMCIA (aka PC Card). Then, every time a new stored media card comes out someone just builds an adapter between the new technology and PCMCIA. You can get Compact Flash to PCMCIA adapters, SD Card to PCMCIA adapters, memory stick to PCMCIA adapters, you name it! By interfacing at the PCMCIA level, the Civic can play all sorts of media card formats.

You can see it demonstrated at about 3:05 into this video:

If one were to use... Conditional clauses require the use of the subjunctive...... ;)

It would have been great to have a card reader in the EuroCiv, Compact Flash would have been sensible, but I see the PCMCIA logic. Shame it's so difficult to swap stuff from the US cars to ours.
