Ok Thank you:) I am going to go ahead and get it. We moved 4 hours from "home" a year ago, and even though I have been back and forth several times I still have to have a map to get back. I have NO sense of direction what so ever lol! I am really looking forward to not having to call my husband and ask him how to get home lol
#15 of 34 Civic Navi XM w/ Aux
Jul 11, 2007 (4:04 pm)
I'm thinking about buying an '07 Civic EX w/ Navigation and factory XM radio. I'm trying to find out if the Aux input (as for an iPod) is available if you also have XM. When I see photos of the Navi controls I see a button for "CD/XM", but none for "Aux". Does anyone know first hand if you can have both XM and Aux with the Navi unit? Thanks.

You can have both. When you plug in an AUX source, a new soft button comes up that allows you to select AUX. I wanted to make sure this possible before I bought my civic, but I ultimately decided to opt for no navi since I didn't feel there was a significant benefit from having a factory installed navi vs. a garmin/tomtom etc.

While I felt the factory navi was competent, I didn't feel it had enough extra to justify it over a aftermarket unit. The two advantages I gave the factory installed unit were the voice control and the fact that it consolidated all of the functions of the car. But I felt the voice control was too awkward to use and the non-portability of an in-dash until didn't help my decision as I have to switch cars occasionally and I don't want to be left w/o my GPS if I need it.
In the end, I ended up with a Garmin Nuvi (which I love.) The only complaint I have about using aftermarket units in the Civic is that because of the severe slope of the windshield, it's hard to find a good place to mount the GPS w/o interfering w/ visibility and keeping it within arm's reach (it's a loooong way to the front of the dash.) I actually ended up mounting it in the cubby-hole right in front of the shifter, and that's been working great for me ever since.

That's exactly the info I was looking for on the Aux source. Thanks so much! So, are you happy with your Civic so far?

While I'll never stop wanting bigger, better, and faster, I can definitely say I have no buyer's remorse here. I still look forward to driving it every chance I get.
#20 of 34 HCH Navigation modifications
Apr 15, 2008 (6:24 pm)
Has anyone modified their nav system? I did find in the manual the copyright for M$ - surprised the the startup logo isn't a M$ flag ... Would be nice if the system was Linux, with a dev kit. That way we could add a second row of (soft/programmable) radio buttons, or a menu of destinations, or bluetooth, or add a backup cam or ... . It's just, and don't get me wrong, my navi is nice, but... I wish the menu system was just a bit easier with a few more options.

Hmmm, my last 3 desktops came with "Windows" installed - only time those computers ever ran M$ was to prove the HW was working - 2 min and OverWrite with Linux.
"Linux will never happen" - Oh, that was the wrong thing to say - that's right in there with a triple dog dare.
