Yo that’s sick! So you bought your own dash kit with that stereo? I’ve been trying to call the shops you gave me and nobody answers. Everyone in the area say they can’t do it
Oh man I’ll keep trying, stereo looks super nice props!No.. I’m using the previous dash kit I have .. there is a little open space behind screen that I wanted to fill ..
There are no dash kits for this car at the moment..
Keep trying to call evolution motorsports, Alonso is very busy so sometimes he doesn’t answer the phone or reply to his texts immediately. Although I think he was recently in the hospital.
You also have to factor in the key less entry with walk away auto lock, and the rear split seats as well. I LOVE the key less entry and peg it along with the remote engine start as being more than worth it.Pure curiosity question... but in total the MSRP difference between and EX and LX is ~$1.2k, with the EX having 8" touch screen and LaneWatch. Did you end up spending less than that in total for the head unit and steering wheel upgrades? Would you have done it again if you had the choice?
just did a little research on iDatalink’s website and they don’t have support for the 2016-up civic yet.. which would be the car you wanted to choose for this device I assume since I used the wiring harness from that gen civic..I was just thinking about this but you EX/Touring people could probably upgrade to a bigger screen and get a iDatalink maestro v2 and still retain factory info like mpg and other car specs.. not sure about the blind spot camera but it’s possible.. if not you can always add aftermarket ..
Plus you get all the good stuff with the aftermarket head unit like wireless CarPlay.
Not trying to bypass built-in amp..that’s probably reserved for OEM head units..
After some struggling with the Pioneer unit and a lagging OS and not reliable features, I decided to return it on the very last day I was able to. I think I got a good idea of how good ( or not so good ) the unit was. I really think Pioneer should’ve released a product operating well out the box ( and I needed to download a firmware update upon install ). It kind of reminded me of Honda Sensing and how Honda didn’t perfect the technology before releasing it (even though it wasn’t theirs).I gave this some thought and was thinking about returning this and getting a 10” Pioneer or wait about a month for the new 10” Kenwood version. They are both iDatalink Maestro compatible and I heard version 2 has climate control capabilities; that way I could remove my AC control panel and lower the unit a bit to cover that area (since they are both position adjustable).
Mine is being delivered tomorrow so I've been reading up and finding out that aftermarket sound in the LX is pretty much custom install only. (On most cars, it's custom, but the 2019 Honda Insight LX is apparently very custom.)@Insightfu1
Sorry to revive an old topic. I have the 2019 LX and have been considering replacing the stereo. Everything on Crutchfield and Best Buy says no stereos are compatible. How did you discern that the Pioneer/Kenwood head units you purchased would work/fit? The websites say they don't but you obviously have it installed. I'm not sure about installing myself but have done so in the past on older/easier cars to work with. Will a shop even do the work when Crutchfield, etc... says the unit is not a fit?
