P.I.E. iPod® Adapter for Honda
Control your iPod with select 2003-up Honda factory stereos (Model HON03-POD/S)
Our take on the P.I.E. iPod® Adapter for Honda by Crutchfield's Dominic DeVito
This adapter from Precision Interface Electronics lets you listen to and control your iPod through select 2003-up Honda sound systems, by converting the satellite radio input on the factory radio into an iPod dock connector. iPod song text shows up on the stereo's display, and you get full access to your playlists. It also provides an additional stereo RCA auxiliary input for connecting an external audio source to your factory radio. Warranty: 90 days.
Note: You must disconnect any factory satellite radio in order to use this adapter. Please enter your vehicle information or call an Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to find out if this adapter is compatible with your vehicle.
Compatibility Note: Be sure to check "Details" for specific iPod model compatibility with this iPod adapter.
