what ipod connector to use for 2004 honda crv?

I have an ipod nano and after using various fm modulators with various degrees of success have decided to bite the bullet and get something more permanent installed to hook the nano up to my Honda CRV factory radio.

I have read about various solutions such as Dension and whatnot but wonder if any of you have experience with a particular set up that works well , especially if it is with a Honda CRV. Also, if anyone could recommend a suppler or installer in the Belfast area would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

AFAIK the Dension is an FM unit too ? Friend of mine has just had one installed in his BMW and he has to set a radio frequency for it ?

Do you know if there is a line-in socket on the back of your radio in the honda ? If so use that and you'll get a reasonable quality sound but not any control functions ...

Have you trie dlooking on the Apple website to see if they have a kits/3rd party products for Honda's ? http://www.apple.com/ipod/ipodyourcar/

I believe there's two types of FM connection - wired and wireless. The wired is of course preferable because it's less prone to interference.

If your HU has a CD autochanger socket there's a possibility you could have a connection with full control too.

I have a 2006 CR-V, and I used it in the 2005 CR-V and I have the Dension Ice Link Plus installed, you need to find out what king of stereo you have fitted as standard in your model of CRV.

I am positive you can find it on the Dension web site. Mine is wired into the CD Changer on the back of the stereo and the iPOD Mini is secured with a Brodit Mount.

Works a treat and is very easy to fix - even for a non DIY type person !!

this is cool :clap: - I was thinking there was no hope for me as I had a factory fitted Honda cd radio other than to replace it with a new head unit. I also have a cd changer - I presume this will be made redundant by using this ice Link thing ? Also please can you tell us how much it roughly costs ? cheers.
