Better that expected
2007 Honda Accord EX
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
The unit was easy to install. The included wiring harness matches up perfectly with my aftermarket head unit. The wiring harness includes a plug for the Axxess ASWC-1 steering wheel control. Just plug in the steering wheel control module and it automatically worked for all my steering wheel radio control buttons. Bezel fits nicely with matching lines, all the mounting holes match up just fine. Programming was easy. The unit automatically detected my manual single zone climate control but needs to be power cycled for the dual indicator to not be shown. Overall the unit looks great and does the job. Had to cut away some of the plastic dash structure beneath the head unit for the unit to fit correctly. It is not noticeable once the bezel is installed but not described in the instruction manual so be aware of this before connecting all your wiring. The LCD display is a little bright at night and the dimmer doesn't seem to adjust the brightness even though the dimmer wire is connected to the unit. Have one wired issue with the climate control. When the air direction mode is set to face and feet you get a blast of air in the face for about a second every 5-10 minutes. I will be calling the manufacture about this issue, could be a firmware issue. My accord only has one zone manual climate control so the "Dual" and "Auto" buttons do nothing but everything else seems to work as expected.
Pros: Easy to install, included wiring harness makes for straight forward connections, clean lines, and work as expected
Cons: Dash plastic structure need modified, bright LCD screen at night, and small climate control quirks.
