Here's one of the final steps in this project that took my 2007 EX-L and did the complete NAV/RES retrofit
turning it into an EX-L R&N and then installed DVD video on NAV
; finally completing the USASPEC PA15HON2 ipod adapter installation
and now Sirius radio integation.
Objective of this project was to install Sirius radio and integrate it into the oem NAV system with full on screen functionality. The last thing I want is a Sirius radio (or any other control unit) stuck to my windshield or screwed into the dash somewhere! As always, nothing beats the clean factory look while still maintaining full functionality. I decided against XM radio for various reasons.
Converting an XM ready Honda to receive Sirius reception requires a Honda/Acura vehicle interface (Sirius HON-SC1) and a Sirius tuner (Sirius SCC1) which integrates into the factory radio controls.
Below are pics showing how I installed these Sirius radio components in conjunction with the USASPEC ipod adapter. This setup allows both to work together by pressing XM1 for ipod control and XM2 for satellite radio. I installed these components neatly behind the glovebox and screwed them into the side panel. All wiring was ran neatly along with existing factory wiring using cable shield and wire ties.
My audio screen on the NAV now has a full row of audio options all available using the touch screen!
