Looks like he installed it in an LX so I'm guessing he doesn't have that problem.

Sorry guys, this is the first time i've logged on the site since December 20th! I actually typed in the model number into Google, and 'forums' after the model number. I found someone on the Dodge Charger forums selling one brand new in box, so I PM'd him, paypal'd and received a crazy good deal! At the time, Amazon was around $580 shipped so I feel really good about my deal. Good luck!

Yes, this car was an LX, so no this is not a premium sound system. The Bluetooth is the BEST bluetooth navi setup I have ever heard. The mic in the car is amazing. I have never seen a bluetooth setup sound this good!

Thanks for all the compliments. I am a total novice at NAV installs and couldve done this with my eyes closed, it was that easy.

@CrackerJackToy

I'm glad you logged on as I was hoping you could answer a couple of questions.

How is the radio reception with the Pioneer unit? I got a different Pioneer double-din and the radio reception is not as great (not like it was great to begin with with the OEM radio) but stations seemed "static-y" sometimes with the Pioneer unit. I'm using the OEM radio harness for aftermarket stereos.

Also, with the trim ring by Scosche... How's the fitment? I made the mistake of not getting one and I already have my radio in, is this something I could just place on top, or do I have to take apart the whole radio again to install the trim ring?

Sorry for the delayed response but im glad I noticed your questions.

My radio response is decent within my town, but as you said its not as good as OEM. I can no longer pickup stations that are out of town like I could with OEM and I too, am using the OEM harness.

Scosche fitment is a 9/10. No modifying required. It sits in there loosely and occasionally you can see it vibrating, but never falls out. You just place it directly over the nav, and do NOT have to take the nav out.

I used this with my Pioneer uint.

Reason I needed this was because I used the OEM honda double-din bezel (I didn't use Metra or Scosche) and since the "trim" that came with my pioneer didn't fit the Honda bezel, the Scosche trim ring fit in there perfectly.

Hey crackerjacktoy, I love the write up and will be using it in the near future as I'm picking up my avic later today. I did have a question though, where/how did you mount the gps antenna on your civic?

There is a empty little spot right next to the speedometer at the top of the dash. Its perfectly flat, and you should see what im talking about when you take the dash pieces off. I heard somewhere on this site, that is where the stock OEM nav has its antenna too. Works perfect with no reception issues.

sounds good thanks man. did you get the traffic controller with it or you just leaving it all to chance and radio reports?

**Also, where did you mount the microphone for the bluetooth that came with the head unit?

I have a pioneer unit and the bluetooth mic has a large clip (meant to be used for the sun visor I guess) and I hid mine inside the new dash unit where the temp. sensor would go (I guess that's what it's called). Basically the little vent area that's near the hazard button. Since the clip is large enough, I just clipped it on one of the wiring (I think either the hazard or the climate control wiring) and just left it in there. Made some calls and I'm heard really well and I don't have to worry about wind noise interfering with calls.
