I have a couple of questions for owners with navigation systems:

1) Is the pin code the same as the OEM radio?
2) Is it possible to get your pin code from any dealer with just a vin#?

Thanks in advance,

1) No.
2) Good question. I don't know. There has to be a way for the tech to either find out the code or reset it at the dealer, but you should be prepared to show proof of ownership of the unit that was salvaged.

PIN numbers are written on the PIN card and on the outer side of the glovebox facing the driver. Do you have access to the glovebox in the salvage vehicle?

So Chuck, you're saying the pin# (not the vin) are written on the glove box?

The radio and nav unit each have a separate PIN sticker on the side of my glovebox. There are two numbers on the stickers- the top one is the PIN and the bottom is the serial number of the unit, either radio or nav.

Beats the hell out of trying to convince the dealer that you didn't steal the unit you don't have the code for.

Can you imagine ME trying to explain this to a dealer?

Me: Honest, I didn't steal it...I got it from ebay!

Dealer: Sure ya did. Call the cops!

I don't know, from what I've seen you're pretty damned creative.
I don't doubt that you'd be able to spinup something that would be a helluva lot more interesting than the boring truth!
You'd have them eating out of your hand.

PIN code

I just got a used 2000 EX. There are no PIN numbers on the side of the glove box. Any other suggestions as to where they might be found? I'm looking for Radio and NAV PIN.

Can you ask the former owner? If you bought it from a dealership, you should be able to go back there and make them do the work to find the individual serial numbers and get the PINs from Honda. Without the PINs you were sold an incomplete van.
