Hi guys. I'm about to buy a 2.4 accord cu2 model which comes with Sat nav. Been looking everywhere for a guide on how to install a double din. Doesn't seem like it's doable which km very gutted. Anyone can please advise. Thank you
My accord is an ES GT so a non sat nav model but I fitted this to mine;Ahh nice hopefully they can help
Looking to keep the display to show the AC climate stuff etc. Don't know why the MK8 is such a pain.My accord is an ES GT so a non sat nav model but I fitted this to mine;
When purchasing there where 2 versions the other was for the ones with sat nav and premium audio set up. The loom directly plugs into the standard wiring as the original stereo is kept and functional.
I have seen surrounds to replace original stereo with double din units but believe there may be issues fitting them when you have the premium set up.
AliExpress was the source, as with most Chinese items the instructions were bad, concentrating on physical fitment rather than wiring etc but had little issues fitting. Has been fitted approx 12 months with no major issues.
Thanks for the video. Looks great. I guess you have best of both worlds. OEM sat nav and the aftermarket stereo. Why have honda made it so hard to change the OEM stereo. Such an *** move lol.I'm currently in the process of integrating a Raspberry Pi 4 into my CW3 Type S. I wanted to retain the factory look and have modern features. All in it cost me around £180 I have made a write up on this in the modifying section here on the forum. By no means have I finished it as I just don't have the time for it at the minute but it is fully functional.
Here are 2 videos of it working;
I've been watching this with interest and have ordered the cable and a non satnav display from a breakers. I also have the same genuine Honda/Acura dash panel but I can't work out what trim ring I need as the supplied one with my Kenwood double din is too big.
What is the cable called?I've been watching this with interest and have ordered the cable and a non satnav display from a breakers. I also have the same genuine Honda/Acura dash panel but I can't work out what trim ring I need as the supplied one with my Kenwood double din is too big.
You can but the fascia that supports a double din unit, rather than cutting the existing one.The trim ring used came from the Gathers VXH-083CVi >https://www.honda.co.jp/news/2007/4070604.html
This trim ring is part of the VXH-083CVi front facia and is non removable. You will have to remove it from the radio ***embly. Then cut out the middle section and trim it down to size. After your trim it down to size you will need to make 2 small brackets to hold it in place in the Honda trim panel. You can purchase a used Gathers VXH-083Cvi here> https://buyee.jp/item/search/query/VXH-083CVi ?translationType=1
