Okay,Yes, I know, but people are doing it. A dealership told me that they were as well. If you do research online, you can also find posts of people that have been doing this with the civic and CR-V. A dealership told me that they had intended for this to happen, plus why would they make it possible for you to put in a card and play music and design the system to do that. My question is why Honda chose to not advertise it.
If they didn't make the system to do that, then it would not work, but it is working.
In the software they had to put some design for it to do this, because others are using this feature and had mentioned the same disclaimer you did as far as not using it for that purpose. These people simply put the card in, that had folders that held music and it was able to be navigated on the screen. I will be doing this with my navigation, and I am not worried about hurting it, because based on the reviews from others that had done this, they did not mention it hurting anything, and there were many posts, people are going to typically state any problems. The only problem they did mention, is finding the right card, they tried one and it didn't work, and then they bought another card and it worked. Once they got the card, they said it came right up, and had 2gig, or 4gig of music to play.
My dealer knew exactly what I was talking about, and said they have had many do this with their navigation.
Other navigations in other company's cars, do this method
That is neat the screen shows all the names of the songs with the CD player. That will be helpful.
#110 of 158 2008 Honda Accord Coupe Under Body Spoiler Kit
Apr 08, 2008 (6:58 pm)
Has anyone placed the Honda Under Body Spoiler Kit on their Accord? I have seen this accessory body panels in person and it looks really good on the Coupe. I am sure the kit components sit a tad lower to the ground than the orginal body panels. I also might be interested in the Honda HFP Sport Suspension Kit that lowers the Accord about 1" and I am wondering if there would be any scraping issues with the under body spoiler kit and the suspension kit installed with the ground? Anyone know out there?
#111 of 158 Rear view camera / backup sensors
Apr 09, 2008 (7:11 pm)
Anyone know why the rear view camera isn't available for the coupe? Seems like it would be another nice feature to integrate with the navi screen, but I'm not sure why it is only available for the sedan.
I backed into a low wall (no damage), but it made me realize how nice it would be to have backup sensors or a camera.

HID is legal in OEM, illlegal in after market conversion kit ...
NHTSA Cracks Down on Aftermarket HID Conversion Kits
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is targeting high-intensity discharge (HID) conversion kits for enforcement actions. NHTSA has concluded that it is impossible to produce HID conversion kits (converting a halogen system to HID) that would be compliant with the federal lighting standard, Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 108. The noncompliant kits frequently include a HID bulb, a ballast, an igniter, a relay and wiring harness adapters. The NHTSA believes this equipment presents a safety risk to the public since the kits can be expected to produce excessive glare to oncoming motorists. In one investigation, the NHTSA found that an HID conversion headlamp exceeded the maximum allowable candlepower by over 800%.
Under FMVSS No. 108 Section S7.7 (replaceable light sources), each replaceable light source for headlamps must be designed to conform to the dimensions and electrical specifications for the headlamp source it is intended to replace. For example, if an HID kit is marketed as replacing an H1 light source, then it must match the H1's wire coil filament size and location, the electrical connector size and location and the ballast design for use with an H1 light source (which is impossible since there is no ballast). Consequently, companies that are manufacturing HID light sources (e.g., D1S, D1R, D2S, D2R, 9500, etc�) with incandescent light source bases (e.g., H1, H3, H7, H8, H9, H11, H13, HB1, HB2, HB3, HB4, HB5, etc) should be aware that this light source design would not be one that conforms to FMVSS No. 108, and could not be imported and sold in the United States without violating Federal law. (The importer is treated as the manufacturer and subject to the same fines and penalties that apply to a domestic manufacturer.)
NHTSA has also determined that a commonly used disclaimer "for off-road use only" has no legal meaning and is not recognized by the agency as the manufacturer, importer and retailer are not in a position to control use once a product has been sold. Any equipment offered for sale which is covered by FMVSS No. 108 (headlamps, taillamps, side markers, etc.) must comply with the standard.
#114 of 158 Adding DVD to 2008 Accord?
Jun 12, 2008 (6:26 pm)
Anybody had success adding a DVD player to their 2008 Accord? Through the dealer or after market? Screen in head rest or ceiling? How much? Any recommendations?

Do a post search. I remember reading here that someone added a dvd player with the screens on the head restraint.

#117 of 158 Nice floor mats from weathertech
Jun 30, 2008 (9:15 am)
I just received my fitted cargo liner and floor mats from Weathertech. They have a nice look and feel to them. I'm glad I went with these instead of the ones from Honda, look forward to years of use.
There is about a 2 week wait on them since they don't stock them. Aside from the wait, I am very pleased!
#118 of 158 Protective Tape for Door Sills
Jul 04, 2008 (3:48 am)
As we keep our cars forever, I'm concerned about scuffing the shiny door sills on our new Accord. I've seen protective tape for hoods, bumpers, headlights, etc. Who makes a durable, clear tape for door sills? Thanks in advance.
