    Mobile Electronics
    Anybody replaced one? Mine doesn't work anymore unless i put a lot of force to the right side of the cable. I guess it took a heavy whack and dislodged the port inside. Want to replace it but don't know where to start. I tried pulling it towards me with some nose pliers but that just felt...

    DIY Center Discussion
    Hi, I'm looking to purchase a 2008 Honda CRV EXL (with navigation and backup camera). I previously owned a 2000 CRV and played my music through a cassette adapter.

    Getting ready to install an FM bypass unit, probably the iSimple IS31 on our new CRV. It will create an AUX port for my digital Walkman and portable XM receiver.

  5. Third gen options for music from phone - USB or bluetooth into aux?

    Mobile Electronics
    Hi all, I just bought a 2010 CRV EX which I pick up next week. I know the nav/audio system doesn't support bluetooth audio streaming so I'm just investigating my best options. Option 1: replace the stock unit with a newer aftermarket one. Expensive and fiddly. Option 2: use something like...

    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    OK, I play a cd for my elderly Aunt when she's with me so we can play only her favorites. I had no idea this vehicle didn't have a cd player. I didn't even think about it. OK, so I figured I can just use auxiliary in.. Ummm, nope not one of those either. I'm steamed. On a 30k car, really?? Now...
