#173 of 192 Poor Radio Reception
Aug 28, 2008 (9:08 pm)
I live on the outskirts of the transmitters reach, but have never had as bad a reception in a vehicle as I have in my 2008 Fit Sport. I've owned 12 vehicles as old as the mid-80's and some new (GMC truck, CRV and Fit) and the Fit is terrible. I'll be calling the Honda number provided above. While I wish the fuel economy was better (~33 mpg in mixed driving) it is still a great car.
Call Honda to complain at 1-800-999-1009
#174 of 192 Sport Stereo Dropped to 160W in '09
Aug 29, 2008 (3:02 pm)
My local dealer didn't have an '09 yet, but he had the new literature. It seems that the specs on the 2009 Fit stereo for both Base and Sport have a 160W stereo. In 2008 the Base had 160W and the Sport had 200W. I test drove the '08 Sport a few months ago and thought the stereo was pretty good. I'm a little concerned with the '09 dropping the power rating ... guess I won't know if my concern is valid until I get to sit in an '09 and crank it up.
#175 of 192 Can I play Sirius through the radio in my 09 fit?

Can I use the usb connection to play satellite radio through the existing radio in my 09 fit sport (no nav)?
I know you can plug an i-pod into the usb jack and use the radio to control it. But can you do the same thing for a satellite radio component?

the antenna is standard with the car, I have the same car, and Mine was stolen last weekend, so I have the same thing- I can see where it screws in. Do you think it may have had it initially and stolen after purchase?
I would call the dealership, especially if you purchased the extended warranty, I just had my gear shift knob replaced free, so I would give it a try.
#177 of 192 NAV Display Brightness not working on AUTO Setting
Oct 19, 2008 (3:45 pm)
Recently purchased '09 Fit Sport with NAV. Brightness of display does not automatically switch between Day and Night when settings are to 'AUTO'. Able to manually change brightness by setting display to 'Day' or 'Night' as appropriate.
Suggestions as to likely NAV issue or other (sensor?) issue that prevents correct display operation when set to 'AUTO'?
#178 of 192 Radio refits

Are there other radios built to replace the Honda radio in the Fit? Can we find a Pioneer Brand stereo system to replace the Honda factory system?
#179 of 192 Steering wheel audio controls
Mar 04, 2009 (11:05 pm)
Do you have to get the nav system option in order to get the steering wheel audio controls? It sure seems like it based on the pictures I've seen so far, and Honda's website isn't very clear about it.
#180 of 192 Steering wheel audio controls follow-up
Mar 22, 2009 (3:40 pm)
I guess you can't edit your posts here, so, answering my own question, you don't get steering wheel audio controls without the GPS package (dumb move on Honda's part). You also don't get a power-lock button on the passenger side (another dumb move). These are 2 things that led to not purchasing this vehicle, sorry Honda, you cheaped out just a bit too much here. By the time you add the GPS on to get the steering-wheel audio controls, you can get another vehicle with many more features, more room, etc.

#182 of 192 Fit '09 MP3 USE
May 03, 2009 (8:24 am)
Hi, New to the Forum. Already have some great information. Thanks. Has anyone used an MP3 player, not an IPOD, in a '09 Fit Sport? I've tried connecting my Zen MP3 player and no go. Manuel is confusing on the types of MP3 systems the Fit's stereo supports. Anyone have ideas as to how to make my Zen player work? Or if it will work. Thanks
