I installed my SNHOND3 along with a ground loop isolator a while back... Here's a pic of where I placed them. I tied them in with a couple of zip ties..

Great work. But for those of us that are perhaps less skillful, do you know of any national retailers/stores who have this product, or can get this product, and install it. I really want to get one for my TSX so I can connect my ipod. Thanks.

hmmm...I'm not sure if there are any local places that carry it and install it... but there's really nothing to it... just pop out the cubby, use a mirror to find the connection, plug it in, secure it to your car and pop the cubby back in.

Maybe just have your dealership pop it out for you? and you plug the thing in yourself? Or maybe have Circuit City do it?

tsxmike: allows you to have sound from RCA cables...

richmar: it is very easy... trust me i dont know what im doing.... and i did it when i had my tsx... should take you no more than 2 minutes... grab onto the empty compartment.. pull out (you wil have to use a little force...there are other threads showing more detail if i remember correctly).. then it just plugs in!

feel free to ask/post questions if you need help. I've got a few more pics from my install if you need.

So where exactly does this thing hook up to?? Is there a plug in in the back or under the factory system that the SNHOND3 plugs into?? Have any pics of the connection? THanks

yup...it's on the back of the system. You have to use a mirror to see the connection. I've got a pic of it...I'll post it up when I get home and find it.

Just curious, what is the ground loop isolator?
Ground Loop Isolator (GLI)

it helps get rid of the humming caused by other electronics on the car.

Some don't need it, but I got one just in case. I think there were a couple of people who said the GLI caused humming, and it went away when they removed the GLI.

Hey guys, i hav a tsx with navi, does that matter? Is there a special unit made just for the tsx with navi or do they all use the same? If it does require a different, how harder is it to install? Thanks in advance!

um...I honestly don't know the installation differences between the navi and non-navi... :(

I did find a couple more threads that might be of use:
http://www.tsxclub.com/forums/showthread.php?t=4584
http://www.tsxclub.com/forums/showthread.php?t=4774


This is the one I bought for my car, it's made by soundgate: http://shop.store.yahoo.com/logjam/sounsnhond3.html

If you look on there, they've got a nother device made by Blitzsafe that's for the TSX with navi....they also mentioned that if you have factory XM, you have to disconnect it, but I am unable to confirm if that is correct or not.

I wish I could be of more help with the TSX w/navi :(
