Here is what I am trying to do. I would like to hardwire my MyFi XM Radio and was looking to purchase a converter. However the converter that is made for the TSX with Navigation is no longer being made (Blitzsafe). So I was thinking of getting the one made by Soundgate and just adding the three wires that go to the Nav unit. Is there anyway to find out if the radio's themselves are different for navigation and non-navigation (wiring connector)? Does anyone have this info?

Thanks for any help,
Larry

What do you make they aren't being made anymore?? I just bought one a few days ago for a friend of mine, and my other friends bought one last night.

I believe Logjam are taking orders for the unit, but its being backordered. Once they get the dispute resoloved, and more units are made, then they will ship them out to whoever placed an order. Basically, there's a waiting list.

Courtesty of Mojo from Acurazinc.com

http://www.chrishorne.com/gallery/SNHOND3

Purchase the audio harness for the Accord (P/N 08A31-0E1-010) from any Honda place; it's around $30. Split open the outer jacket of the SNHOND3 cable to expose the wires. Specifically, we need the brown, blue, and orange wires in the SNHOND3 cable. Cut the female end of the Accord adapter off, and cut back the outer covering. There's a couple of grey shielded cables inside of this one- one has a grey and orange wire, as well as the metal shielding. Cut back all other wires, and expose the grey and orange wires, and twist the shielding into a wire. Next splice (either by cutting the SNHOND3 cable's brown, blue, and orange wires, or exposing the wires and soldering in, or by using an inline crimp; I cut and soldered for a cleaner installation) the lines together like so:

Accord grey -> SNHOND3 brown
Accord orange -> SNHOND3 blue
Accord metal shielding -> SNHOND3 orange

Note that the SNHOND3 cables are straight through-you're just Y-ing off the three wires to the female connector.

Once all of this is done, seal with electrical tape or heat-shrink. You'll end up with a cable like the last cable pictured (see link). Unplug the white connector under the Navi (when the CD changer tray is removed), plug it into the female connector. Then plug the SNHOND3 cable into the Navi and into the interface.

Hope this helps.

What does the ICE Link do then?

Does the SNHOND3 disable factory XM?
The lcelink enables the usage of playlists, and steering wheel controls. Yes, this will disable your factory XM if i remember correctly. If you want both, you'll need to get a multi source adapter to switch between XM and the Ipod. Or you could just say **** XM and use the Ipod as I can't stand XM at all.
