You should set the code at the time of bluetooth connectivity, I'd think. I know when I'm trying to connect to another bluetooth phone from my own phone, it asks the receiving phone to provide a code, then the sending phone to input that code, so that the right phones connect.
I usually just do a "1-2-3-4" and tell the other person to do the same, and then we connect.
Try something like this?

I have an iPhone (non 3G) that I am currently using on my '08 Accord. The car is a coupe with the navigation option. My sales associate helped me set up the bluetooth option via voice commands the day I bought the car and later I imported my phone book.
What is weird though is that I checked Honda's bluetooth website: http://automobiles.honda.com/bluetooth/ and it said that the iPhone could not import its address book to the car. Try it anyway. I have no explanation on why it works when the site says it doesn't, maybe its a typo.

I just purchased a 2008 Honda Accord sedan EX-L with no navigation system. Since I wear hearing aids in both ears I wanted an in car bluetooth system. I opted to add Honda's bluetooth accessory after the deal. I got a great deal, and the dealership installed system in a half a day. I currently have T-mobile prepaid cell phone service, which is a great service for those who do not need constant access to a cell phone. After I got the bluetooth installed I went to the local T-Mobile store and worked with the sales representative and purchased a Samsung T429 cell phone. We went outside to the parking lot and he paired the demo phone to my Honda bluetooth system in less than 2 minutes. I took a new phone home, deleted the pairing the store rep setup, setup the new phone in less than 1 minute and called my wife from the drive way.
The phone I purchased is not listed in the Honda bluetooth list of approved cell phones, but so far it is working great.
Hope this helps

Budh, How much did it cost? Does it come with any type of display as I assume the phone numbers do not show up on the screen. Does it have the capability of both responding to a person's name and also stating the phone number? I have the exact same car as you in Midnight Black.

The phone if free if you sign up for Prepaid phone service from T-mobile. I was up grading my phone so it cost me $99.99.
The phone is a slider and has a large display. The caller appears in the display, and caller ID is a feature of the phone. It is also a camera phone.
Go to the T-mobile web site and see the phone for yourself. link title

I haven't found anything yet. I wasn't sure if you were referring to a GPS device or something else.
Several Garmin GPS devices have bluetooth. I don't know Tom Tom well but am sure they do, also. Looks like $400+ for a GPS that has Bluetooth capability

I also have a 2008 Accord EX-L with no nav. I just called my local dealer (parts dept) and they told me the Honda Bluetooth hands free kit is not out yet.
Can you give me the details on what you got installed? And, are you sure it's a Honda part, as opposed to an aftermarket kit?
What's the part number(s), price, etc.? Where are you located - what dealership? Is it integrated with the car (mute radio, through the speakers, etc)?
Thanks a lot for the help!

Your local dealer is wrong. What I found out about salesmen is that they only know what is on their lot. After I pushed him to locate the bluetooth he found one the next day.
This is not an aftermarket kit, it is from Honda becasue it fit in place of the sunglass holder above the mirror. Simply go the Honda's web site and select accessories.
According to my invoice there is an FP number for the Base Kit 08E00-E10-100 and a Kit Number 8753188. List Price is $418.00.
The Attach Kit FP number is 08E02-TA0-120 and a Attach Kit Number 8763179 List Price is $89.00. Installation for me was $185.00, but this is dependent on the dealership.
I am located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and I purchased my Honda from Dean Honda.
Like I said the bluetooth system fits in place of the sunglass holder above the mirror. It has it own speakers and all of the controls for calling, muting and volumn are located in between the speakers and microphone.
If you want to call Dean Honda there phone number is 412 466-8120.
Hope this helps

I purchased a 2008 Accord EX-L w/Navigation this week and noticed that it has a little black DVD box in the trunk. I have looked in my owners manual and can't find anything to explain it. Can anyone tell me what it's used for??
