Our take on the P.I.E. Honda CD Changer Adapter
You bought a 2003-up Acura or Honda vehicle, and now the dealer is telling you that adding a CD changer will cost you a bundle. Here's a way to add CD changer entertainment to your vehicle, and save some cash.
The Precision Interface Electronics HON03/PC-SON adapter allows you to connect a Sony CD changer to select Honda and Acura model radios with CD controls. The adapter also sports a pair of RCA inputs, so you can use it as an auxiliary input instead of connecting a CD changer perfect for connecting a portable player. The adapter plugs into the factory radio's CD changer data port and connects to the Sony CD changer cable's plug the Sony's cable must be routed to the changer location. Warranty: 90 days.
Note: If your vehicle has a factory-installed navigation system, you'll also need the P.I.E. Y-adapter cable to retain that function. Please enter your vehicle information or call a Sales Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to find out if this model is compatible with your vehicle.
