DreaminAccord Sorry Jd, I just saw this but I'm glad you found the other posts on here regarding swapping the resistor! It is extremely tiny and can be hard to see while you're soldering so be careful and take your time.
September 16th, 2014 01:18 PM
Jd1372 I found it!!

Thanks so much!!

You DIY's are amazing!!
September 16th, 2014 12:02 PM
Jd1372 I know this post is old... I am trying to find out more information about the specifics of changing a "Sedan" Navigation unit to a "coupe" I saw that there is a resistor I need to change, but Im not sure what resistor, or what needs to be done to it. Please help!!

kimo_112 Did it and so loving it. Had a few minor issues but Martin resolved them in literally 10 seconds. Still can't post pics but it looks awesome! Only grip and this is minor I have to wait about 3-5 seconds for system to start before back up cam kicks in.

Thanks Ben for this great write up!
March 18th, 2014 04:25 PM
DreaminAccord You'll do fine but G'luck! You are going to love the upgrade and realize it's worth every penny spent haha
March 12th, 2014 10:53 AM
kimo_112 Great write up bro,

Wish me luck I'm doing this same install over the weekend in my 06 Ex-L V6 sedan. Also adding pioneer sub, amp, back up cam and transferring grom audio BT/usb/3.5mm cable from non navi unit.

Newbie to forum so can't post pics yet lol.

Domi_no Excellent write up, and great pictures on the details. Thanks.

DreaminAccord That's around what you'll pay for an OEM Navi Martin is a very good guy (acurahondaexpert) and can also supply you with the custom harness that you'll need to do the install correctly
March 31st, 2013 02:47 PM
tenzingsherpa The cost I was quoted is about 1200 without install cost. The ebay seller name is acurahondaexpert.

sub7viet awesome thank you ver much! how much did it cost ? can i buy on ebay?
March 5th, 2013 10:51 AM
DreaminAccord Took me about 6 hours total but that included coffee breaks, disassembling & reassembling both the navi & 6-disc radios, etc
March 4th, 2013 05:33 PM
DoLLa Great write up. How long did it take you? I did one for a friend on his 04 TL, 10 HOURS! I rather the stock navi than aftermarket.

Thanks! I finally got it all in late last night. I am using a Mediabridge so also ran the usb cord to the glovebox in case I need it. But yes, the BT is great. Thanks!

hil357 Looks great! I just took mine out to install a bluetooth/usb adapter and cannot for the life of me get it to go back in correctly. Any tricks you can share that you learned when you took it apart the second time to make it fit flush? I've tried tucking the harnesses everywhere and still can't get it.

THANKS!

DreaminAccord I agree with you, Frank - even though many others would shake their heads at us and think otherwise

Well brother, money is meant to be spent and modding our rides is one fun way of spending it. lol
February 22nd, 2013 05:23 PM
DreaminAccord haha thanks y'all! I'm a big believer in giving back b/c there are so many people over the years on car forums that I couldn't thank enough for saving me thousands (literally) due to their awesome DIY How-To's and pictures. So anytime I do something to my car (which I'm sure y'all can tell by now that I can't, nor ever will, leave a car bone stock!) to take a lot of quality pics and write a very descriptive how-to

I appreciate all the compliments and I am absolutely loving the Navi!! Just seeing this, today, put a huge grin on my face
(Sorry for the blurriness but I was heading to a stop sign & quickly trying to capture it before the instant fuel dropped to zero since it does that when you're not moving)


EDIT to OP: I added a few more pics - the V6 PCM instructions, as well as, pics of the disassembled radio/navi for curious minds. You will notice in my nighttime photo that I chose to customize the lighting underneath the volume/power and tune knobs (they are a much brighter, lighter orange - very closely matches my cluster's needles!). I purposely did this - as it is now 100% unique and my own and will allow anyone in the future who may become owners of it to indeed know that this was my custom project and the Navi was in fact out of a Sedan and converted into a Coupe. No one else will have one w/ that feature. (Well, unless one of y'all copy me!! haha j/k)

06accordcoupe Another awesome write-up Ben.

When I joined this forum I just needed info on a slight drop.

Couple years later, I've dropped it, custom spoiler, intake, exhaust, rear sway bar, led bulbs everywhere, front strut bar, different rims, mp3/ ipod adapter. lol

Cool people like you tempt us into doing more mods. lol AWESOME.
