    Some info out the dab radio shortly as Beefy has already indicated the are for our Jazz and Civic owners.

    Accord well can't see it happening as the politics behind it, some people don't want to see the Accord alive so seeing a kit for our Accords is next to zero.

    Don't be so sure cj. If honda can see a market in it ime sure they will include other models. Thing is though most Hondas use the same or similar connectors. It would be good to be able use the steering controls. Much better than most retrofit kits.

    Love your optimism bud if they wanted to release the Accord kit it could have been done at the same time as this,after all this box is pretty much plug and play !

    If this was released I would have it in a flash but we all know Honda UK stance towards the Accord don't we..

    I'll volunteer my car to have the dab radio fitted. If Holdcroft need a test car to adapt it and make it fit they can have mine . :Grin:

    Forgive me for stating the obvious but why doesn't someone just contact Autodab direct and ask them to hurry up and make one for the accord.

    Looking at the website Autodab appear to be manufactured by Connect2 who do the xcarlink. In which case why do we need to wait for a Honda affiliation or approval?! It should be easy for Connect2 to produce 1 for the accord range, they just need to be told there's a demand for it and to pull their finger out.

    Just seen your previous comment. I was thinking of giving them a call but wouldn't have been before the middle of June as I don't even have time to scratch me a£$€ at the minute.

    It's a shame they won't have one soon but it's something to put on the christmas present list.
