    The portable jump starter instructions advise to connect the negative clamp to the battery's negative terminal. The supplied cable is too short to attach it to the engine mounting bolt as Honda instructs. Is there an alternative location for the negative clamp to be secured? There are too...

  9. Do any other navigation units fit into the Honda portable nav holding bracket

    Mobile Electronics
    The OEM portable navigation mount sold by HandA looks like a nice mount setup. But, at about 500.00 for the nav unit itself, they've got to be kidding when 199.00 buys you a lot of navigation functionality in an aftermarket brand that will probably work better. Has anyone tried mounting a...
