I have a 2002 EX-Navi and just finished installing an Empeg stereo into it (http://www.empeg.com). The Empeg can understand a bunch of different signals sent to it by steering wheel remotes but what I need to know is how those signals are sent to the head unit and in what format so I can make the porper connections and configurations. I am thinking that the connection is made through the wiring harness but most aftermarket harnesses don't wire the full connector. Does anyone know the full pin out to confirm or deny my thoughts? Also, if it is done this way, does anyone know the signals sent to the until from the remote?

A follow up is that I have seen photos where people are using the video screen for navigation as a monitor for DVD/VHS. How is this acomplished? Is it a modification at the DVD end of navigation or is the connection just plugged into a different device?

green/red at the radio harness is the steering wheel control. Just tie in there. Signals are resistors that get pulled to ground when a button is pressed. Factory resistors are:
100, 270, 620 and 3.6k (IIRC)

Take a look at this:

Try the search first when looking for this stuff; lots of threads on all your questions.

Good Luck,

So did you replace the stock headunit with this mp3 reciever?</font>
Yes I did. 3 days of work but it is finally done. I forget how short the days are now. Anyways, I am writing up a web page with details, photos, and how-to of the install. I will post the link here when I am done. In the mean time, you can read my old pages about the install into my Civic and the unit in general at http://empeg.gregdemetrick.com/

If so, have you figured out how to get the navigation's voice through it?

Not yet but I do have a theory. The unit has an Aux line in through RCA jacks. I should be able to connect the GPS Audio through there but there is a catch. When the unit is in Aux mode, no other audio sources are available (Radio/MP3). It was designed to have a second head unit slaved to the Empeg for expanded capacity.

I probably could program the Empeg to function the same way the Honda Stock Radio does but that would mean finding a different way to get the audio signal into the unit and having it recognize the input from one channel as opposed to the other. *thinking* Maybe it can be done at the amp level with a cross over. . . I just need time to think the problem through as you can probably tell.

I found the best way to get the navigation voice working with your aftermarket deck is using this unit by Sony:

This little device can automatically switch the signals coming from the headunit and navigation system. The only other thing you need is an amp. To read more about the navigation system and aftermarket headunits go here:
