Does it display on nav screen when driving.

I would say I don't think it will work, but you can ground the wire behind the unit for this to work. I did this with mine and I can watch DVD/use AV video in while driving. :)
Might need a how to on this one

You've done this with the honda premium navigation unit...

If you have please tell me how... Which plug and which wire??

I did not think possible because I thought it also sensed movement from the canbus.

OMG you've got me excited now.... lol

Please tell how ������

I don't want to disappoint you, but I actually have a Pioneer unit installed to replace the original one.

There is a wire that is labeled handbrake or something, you need to provide power (ground) to this wire so that you can use the AV functions when the handbrake is down. See if anyone on here has tried, I don't have the factory system for me to look at.

Uhmm... So I have a Galaxy S3 Android phone, would it be possible to mirror the screen to the imid screen ? Was thinking that it would be nice to use the navi on the phone on the imid screen.

I don't know where the connector or whether the i-MID supports video in, I think I saw someone on the internet that made it work but it's apparently a hassle. It would be better just to get a double-DIN unit installed with video input.

If you have a Sat Nav equipped 9g (or one without the reversing camera being displayed on the iMID), the getting video onto the iMID is relatively easy... Only a couple of panels to remove to gain access to rear of iMID and connect a composite video input.

One of these days I'll get time to do a how to ��

Is the reverse camera just a composite cable? I want to plug this in my Pioneer instead of the i-MID, although having it higher on the i-MID is actually easier to see.

Basic principle is here:

This is for US model, but these 2 pics have the basic info.





BTW, simple putting 12v into #14 does not flip the image automaticaly on our Euro models (I wish it did, then it's a simple case of adding a switched 12v to flip it). Ours requires an input signal 3v on #21 for the iMID to 'See' the camera/video source... I have yet to test this works. For now, I just acess the 'camera/video in' this way...

This should work on all 9th Gen Civics with the i-MID display...

Press the MENU button on the steering wheel to access the vehicle menu:



Then press and hold SELECT and MENU at the same time for approx 20 seconds. You should then get the Service Diag Menu



From here you can select 'Camera'

You will then need to adjust the gridlines out of the way if just using for video...

@Bog ,

Have you try to "steal" camera signal,directy from the reverse camera location?
So as to avoid removing the panels?

For mirroring you need to place a miracast, a video converter ,a relay and give them power.

Not sure what you mean because I have the sat nav version so the reversing camera inputs to the larger sat nav screen... Not the iMID like other models, hence being able to input video to the spare connections on the iMID.

I think he's asking if you can intercept the wires from the camera, meaning the camera at the back on the boot lid or something like that so you can input the video through the wiring without pulling the dash apart to access the connectors behind the iMID.

Probably good, but it would mean no camera and maybe splicing some wires?

Yes exactly. Since there is already a camera connected to imid, maybe you can avoid the removal of dash and place everything close to camera.
Something like the next diagram but instead of DVD player ,it will be a HDMI to RCA converter and a miracast .

That will work perfectly.... On non sat nav versions, although trust me it's probably easier to tap in behind the iMID because all you have to do to gain access is unclip/pull forward slightly the instrument cowel at the top so that you can then pop off the top dash panel (below iMID and speedo)... You need to pull forward the instrument cowel/surround because the pointy bit at the top overlaps the top panel slightly by about 5mm.

Once top panel is off... You can access the two screws holding in the iMID... Remove these and it simply pulls forward and out ( after disconnecting the 3 wiring plugs)

Btw... One point you've all missed... I could not tap into the camera wire to the iMID at any point because it's not there in EX and EX-GT models, it goes into the rear of the double din Sat nav unit. I'm not sure why Honda did this, as I think I'd prefer the reversing camer image on the iMID even though it's a smaller screen.

I have mine set up with the i-MID for the reversing camera with my Pioneer head unit doing nothing. It is easier to see with the camera higher up, although it is smaller. Does the Nav unit form the factory have a standard camera input or is it just wires like the i-MID? I think my Pioneer unit has the standard composite connector, not sure how I can plug the wires in if it's not a standard connector.
