I have the USA spec unit in my Odyssey, and it works great. But, I don't have Nav. THere is an adapter to allow it to work on a car that already uses the Aux port (I think that the XM is the problem area, not the nav, since XM uses the port input).
Check out Crutchfield. THey have a lot of info, and I think some reviews. I know that there is a seperate piece (a splitter) from USA Spec for your application.
The Accord (unless they added it in '07, I have an '05) doesn't have an aux plug (the Civic does), or a set of RCA jacks. So, any solution, even a simple plug in with no ipod functions like the USA spec has, will still require an adapter to connect into the radio.
But, check Crutchfield. When you put in your model it will tell you what you need, and you can call a rep who can explain it too.

Thnx for the tip. I will definitely check out Crutchfield.
How is the functionality control using the USA Spec (i.e., Can you change playlists, choose artists, skip tracks, etc. on the Honda factory stereo now)?

I don't use playlists, but you can skip tracks from the headunit or steering wheel controls. If you want to perform fancy functions (change genres, look up artists, etc) you do it directly from the ipod.

Wish I had seen this sooner. I've already spent $300 on a new stereo on in my '07 Accord that is IPOD-ready. The money wasn't the issue; they installed the stereo below the factory stereo (it took the place of the storage compartment) so now I have a factory stereo that completely does not work or light up, and the new radio underneath where the storage compartment was. It looks rather silly. I'm glad I can finally listen to my IPOD in my car but really, I wish there was a better way and I hadn't wasted $300.
