#183 of 192 Does iPhone 3G charge and work on the FIT Sport
May 11, 2009 (12:47 pm)
Does anybody use an iPHone 3G in the Fit Sport? Does it Play well with the Stereo system? I have many Questions:
1. Does it charge the iPhone 3G?
2. Does it display the Song name/Artist on the radio?
3. How is the Quality of audio on the Fit Sport..
Just would like if anybody has a Fit Sport and uses iPhone 3G as the iPod in the car system.
The dealer is a far drive away, but ultimately i will go in for the test drive and find out myself. ... Just Curious!!!

hondafit3: you'd need a male-male cable that is standard headphone jack size on one end (1/8", I believe", and on the other end is whatever the AUX jack is. I would presume that's also 1/8", but I haven't checked. The owner's manual doesn't say.
Mark: I have tried only a first-gen iPhone, with 2.2 firmware in my Fit Sport/no nav. My best answers to your questions:
1. I think so; the iPhone shows a little plug over the battery icon
3. Quality sounds perfectly fine to me, though I am no audiophile
One odd note - when I connect my iPhone it gives a message on the phone saying this is not a supported accessory, then it suggests I put it in airplane mode to avoid interference. I just click through and say no and it works just fine and behaves as it's supposed to. But I so far have not tested it enough to see if there's any GSM buzz.

Hope you got it fixed, if you didn't, i did, here's how:
Turn the round knob next to the odometer reading, turn it all the way to the right, this makes the dashboard lights go the brightest. Now turn the knob one or two clicks to
the left (counter clockwise). Now your navigation will honor the 'auto' setting from day to night. Silly, but Honda dealer showed me this is how to make it work. Bye... P.s. In addition to being able to turn this knob, you can also push it to reveal the remaining 'oil life'. Take care.

Yes, unfortunately, you do...
#187 of 192 Cheap and Easy MP3 Adapter Solution for the FIT
Aug 18, 2009 (9:30 pm)
I have a 2007 FIT Sport. I wanted to plug and play my MP3 but couldn't believe the cost of the adapter(s) from OEM and aftermarket. So, I lucked out and found a solution Radio Shack. It's called a Universal FM Transmitter by Gigaware, p/n 1200494 for an astonishing $19.99. It plugs into your lighter socket/accessory outlet. Then plug it into any device that has a standard headphone jack. It also comes with an additional "pigtail" adapter for a larger size. Then, it looks for a vacant FM frequency and displays it on a small transmitter (included). Finally, you find and match the frequency on your FM that is displayed on the transmitter and VIOLA! It sounds GREAT!
#188 of 192 2010 HU with navigation
Feb 19, 2010 (7:33 pm)
I have the 2010 Fit Sport with Navigation. I want to keep this head unit and install a small low profile subwoofer under the rear seats that is easily removable. Can anyone that has pulled this HU tell be if there is a subwoofer out jack or a pre-amp jack on back of unit. Do not want to pull if there is not one. Will have to install a amp/subwoofer combo of a existing door speaker.
#189 of 192 HONDA FIT 2008 - AUDIO SYSTEM "ECLIPSE MODEL"
Jun 03, 2010 (9:13 pm)
I have recently purchase a HONDA fit car where the the audio system was an ECLIPSE model: CD player,DVD player only for navigation system and a touch screen panel with button on both right and left hand side. The problem is that i don't understand anything as both manual and system is in Japanese language. Could you kindly help if i can get a link or way to change the language in french or English and also if there is any DVD available to have the local GPS system activated.
Waiting for a kind response from you side

#191 of 192 hands free phone/bluetooth
Jan 07, 2012 (5:39 pm)
I just sat in a 2012 Fit. If I am reading the brochure correctly, one can only get bluetooth if one purchases the Sport model with the navigation system. The dealer told me that he could install bluetooth on a base Fit. Can anyone tell me if the salesperson is correct/incorrect? I absolutely (and I think every car should have it as standard) need to have a hands free phone. I would prefer the base Fit, but won't get it if there isn't bluetooth available. I also saw another poster state that the Fit is due for a revamp for 2013. I will go to Edmunds Futures page to see if that is correct.
