Hi everybody.
Is there anyone who has this interface installed? Its name is Honda USB/MP3 Interface Model V and you can buy it here:
Honda USB/MP3 Interface Model V*::*HONDA*::*XCarLink

It looks very simple but I dont know if it is really fully compatible with our new Civic.
This looks really sweet all it needs is to connect to the CD Changer connection??? Does anyone knows where this is located??? I might just buy this and have it ordered to my parents in the UK!!!!

Wow, like that a lot. If anyone is digging around can they see if the cabling works if you've wired in a Parrott ck3100.

Or does anyone know if the Autochanger plug is a separate from the main connectors that plug into the back of the radio.

To connect the CK3100 you have to replace the main block you see.

This looks easier and cheaper than other solutions I've seen on the forum - who fancies being a Guinea pig?

But the post 2005 civic is not listed on the Shenzen website!

some answers

I sent them some questions and there are answers from Jan Ahmet.

Hi,
Thanks for your enquiry, I can confirm that our new interface is fully compatible with hte 2006 Honda Civic, when making a purchase please can you include this in the order notes so we can ensure that the correct interface is sent out to you.

All functions can be controlled through the steering wheel buttons, the interface will emulate a CD changer. It is not possible to display ID3 tags but it will show basic track information such as timer, track number etc.

A step by step guide for removing your car stereo can be found here:

Hey,

I'd come across these on Ebay but have never seen the Bluetooth option, which makes it even more appealing as I need to sort out a handsfree kit in the car.
Nice idea and can actually be hidden inside the dash area with extension cables into the glove box for instance to keep things clean & tidy.

I wonder who will be the first to try this kit out and report back here [smilie=cheeky-grin:

I too made some enquiries - mainly because I have the SatNav version and wanted to know if it would still work. Their response is, if anyone is interested are:-

Hi,

Thanks for your enquiry.
I can confirm that it does work with the new Honda Civic, however as the Satnav occupies the CD changer port, you would also need a Y cable, which unfortuantely we do not have available at present. However you may be able to obtain one from a parts specialists/main dealer.

Kind Regards
Jan

hmmm, a Y cable?

I have the CD changer and the Sat nav, and the cableing runs into the armrest/centre console, I'm sure some smart person cand knock up a spliced setup??? I really fancy one of these, especially if it can be fitted into my armrest :)

Is the Y connector the £92 bit of kit from Honda?

I don't need bluetooth as it's built in - does that cause interference problems? - just thinking out loud, not necessary to reply!

Armrest install would be ideal with say 8gB MP3 and never have to change it again!

Exactly, I want it to play through a cheap mp3 player, so that I can use my changer for BOT and my CD slot for friends CD's. As you say, never need to change it again, if it's got, like my mums Ipod 40gb, then that should play for so long the car'll wear out before you finish ;-)
