Great DIY article & pictures!

Thank you for the great description of your installation of the iPod connector!

I have a 2007 Accord SE V6. I would like to know how to determine what radio is in my car? Is it a Sony? It has a multi-CD changer.

Thank you.

If it has a multi cd changer in the trunk then I believe it would be sony, if it is 6 changer inside then I am not sure. Sorry cant help more than that!

This is a step by step process of what I did to successfully install the auxiliary input connector for an ipod. I have a 2006 Accord EX with just a CD/AUX button. No navigation or XM radio are in my car, but this is the same process you would take even if you have navi or XM. However, if you have XM, you will have to disconnect the cable for XM to use the input for your ipod or MP3 player. If you don't care about XM and rather would have an auxiliary connect, then you're in luck. If you have Navi, then you may need to buy another connector cord.

The necessary auxiliary input converter I purchased is part # HON03/PC-SON. It is by PIE (Precision Interface Electronics). It says Honda to Sony and mentions it can be used for an external Sony Multidisc player. You are able to use it as that, but it also can be used for the aux device like i did. I got it off of amazon for about $70 from Audio Connections. $70 is a pretty good deal because most of them are between 60-120 depending on where you go. I believe Best Buy sells a whole kit to convert your car but it is well over $100. By doing it this way you save a lot of money and can do it easily yourself. The only other cord you will need is a simple RCA cable. The one that actually goes into the iPod device.

Necessary things:

Grab some zip ties to keep it all clean, some double sided thick tape to mount the converter box, scissors, screwdrivers (phillips and flathead), and also a couple different sized rubber gromits to put in the hole so it looks professional and clean (Not pictured). The gromit size will depend on how big the hole you drill is. Also, it is good to disconnect the negative part of your battery. Make sure you have your radio code handy for reconnection otherwise you can't use it!!!

Pull up on the front of the gearshift cover and there are 4 snaps that will pop it out pretty easily so you can expose the ashtray screws. It is easier to put the gear shifter in the low gear so it is out of the way. Just pull the parking break. Turn the key as far as it will go and keep it in.

Attachment 33927

Attachment 33928

Unscrew the two screws to allow the removal of the ash tray unit.

Attachment 33930

You will be able to pop up the ash tray unit with the removal of the two screws.

(I am posting the rest of the steps in seperate posts so I can include all of the pictures.)
Hi! Are you able to control the iPod from the steering wheel/dash or are you only able to control it from the iPod itself?

missaccord06,

The input i installed only plays the music from the ipod to the speakers through the 3.5 mm jack. You cannot control it via radio or steeringwheel controls. I believe that requires an input that goes into the bottom prongs of the ipod that will also charge it. I went this route because personally I don't feel the need to use that input, plus I believe it is a bit more expensive to do it that route even if you DIY. Hope this helps. Feel free to PM me or anything if you need more info!

Nice! Let me know how it goes, I may install something similar to what you bought so it will charge it, only down side is that it will only work for ipods or iphones, most people wont have an issue. I think I just figured the 3.5 mm jack was easier, good quality though!

You will have access to both units...The AUX installation just adds an additional feature of an ipod. No issues whatsoever.

More 'clean' Look

If you want a more clean aux input install I installed one of these inside the arm rest of my 07 accord.

Did you end up using this product in your accord? how did it work for you? I have an 06 and wanted to install something with charging capability.

^ ^ I did not use the link you included. I used this plugged into the factory radio, then I plugged in a 3.5mm to the red/white split cable which I included in the pics. That does not charge my device.

The link you included is the same concept, but just lets you charged the device, I skimmed it so I am not sure if you can control your device via steeringwheel or whatever, but I would make sure you know that first. (If it charges it I would definitely want it to work with the steeringwheel controls as well.) This price is good, but seems almost too cheap. I found one I like, but of course it is more, I figure I'd pay more and get it done right for sure, but its your car.




^ This one lets you charge your device and control it through the car controls and it is pretty well known.

- Hope this helps.

Yes I did see that product offered online by blitzsafe, however I am concerned with a few bad reviews regarding this product and its sister product for which I have provided a link for below:




Do you have any input/recommendations? I am thinking of just buying at and trying it, if it does not work like I want maybe Amazon will take it back...

...and thank you for your quick reply!

Get the iSimple kit. It is the best one on the market and it is the only one that retains full XM capability, if your vehicle has XM. You can use the standard Aux input that comes with it, or buy the HD Radio option in place of the standard Aux. It allows full iPod control, full XM, standard Aux, or HD Radio.

This looks great, and I found it on amazon for 10 dollars cheaper, I think I will stick with this. Thank you for all your help.
