  1. 2007 Ridgeline OEM XM Radio - Best Bluetooth kit for iPhone X

    1G Mobile Electronics
    Looking for recommendations for a Bluetooth retrofit kit to integrate with my 2007 Honda Ridgeline XTL OEM XM radio. I have seen some older units (e.g., PA15-HON2) but they have the older connector for iPod. Bluetooth seems like the best option, but unclear if it will work on the AUX radio unit...

  3. Easy/Cheap/Great Way To Add Bluetooth To 1st Gen

    1G Mobile Electronics
    I just bought a 2008 RL last week. It is an RTL trim (no nav) and it has the subwoofer, 6 disc changer, and steering wheel controls. After deliberating about how I was going to get bluetooth into the truck I found a product that seemingly checked all the boxes. With this product: I did not...
  4. BT45-HON3 Issue

    1G Mobile Electronics
    I have been using the BT45-HON3 adapter in my 2007 RTL (no Nav) for 3 years or so with little issues. Now, all of a sudden I get no sound out of it as far as music/media. However, I do get sound when calling. Further the radio now has a CH icon lit up that was not previous (even when off)...

    1G Problems & Issues
    I have an iPhone 6 connected as a phone to the system through Bluetooth. iPhone Version 9.3.3. Phone calls income and outgoing work well and voice commands all work. However, today I had a voicemail and I went to play it and it will not play back on the truck unless I switch to cd/aux. I...
  7. Definitive, USA SPEC BT45-HON3 Works With 2014 SE Nav & XM

    1G Mobile Electronics
    My first post as I bought 2014 SE at the end December. It has Nav & XM. My wife has a CRV with Nav and XM, so I was aware that the BT probably wouldn't steam audio, what I didn't realize is that the Ridgeline didn't have a USB input like the CRV, which allows control and displays music info...

  10. Music a charm

    1G Mobile Electronics
    So I wanted to share a product that I find works extremely well if you want music to come through your stock stereo without that annoying cable to connected to the ill placed aux port. The product is called Kinivo BTC450 Bluetooth Hands-Free Car Kit for Cars and I have to say that this is one...
  11. Bluetooth Audio

    1G Mobile Electronics
    Just joined this forum after buying a 2013 Ridgeline RTL with factory Nav. From what I could find in the forum, there doesn't seem to be a good alternative for the built in system for streaming bluetooth audio from my iPhone. I'd like to keep the nav system and access to XM, but it drives me...
  12. iPod/iPhone Streaming Through Factory Radio

    1G Mobile Electronics
    Hello, I'm curious if anyone has any recommendations on a device that is compatible with the factory radio/navi. In my 2011 Honda Accord, there was a USB connector that I could use to charge, control and listen to music through. The BT-35 device keeps turning up in my forum searches but that...
  13. Bluetooth audio

    1G Accessories
    I just bought a 2012 RTL loaded. Much to my surprise the bluetooth works for the phone but not for the audio. I would love to be able to play my audio files off my Iphone via bluetooth instead of having to plug in the Iphone into the audio jack. Is anyone aware of an aftermarket fix for this...
  14. Now you can add Bluetooth and streaming audio to your factory system!

    1G Mobile Electronics
    Hi everyone, I know this product has been brought up in other threads but I thought it would be helpful to start a new one just for this product. They claim "The USA SPEC BT35-HON will add Bluetooth to your factory Honda radio. The BT35-HON will not only give you hands-free phone calls, but...

    Hello All! I just bought my first RidgeLine this week. It's a 2006 RTL with everything but NAV. It has 108k miles, new breaks, tires, and has had the valvetrain adjustment, water pump and timing belt replaced. I got it for $15.5K in Columbus Ohio. The interior and exterior is completely...
  16. 2010 Bluetooth (Re)Connect

    1G Mobile Electronics
    Bluetooth with my iPhone4 seems to work fine but every once in a while it doesn't seem to connect ... sometimes just waiting a few minutes does the job but other times it seems random (if never connecting) Is there a way to ask the bluetooth on the Honda to recheck/reconnect with the iphone? TIA!
  17. Jabra 2 Cruiser

    1G Mobile Electronics
    Hey folks, I just picked up the Jabra 2 Cruiser. It is a bluetooth speaker mounted on my visor. I can listen to calls through the speaker as well as music. Even better, I can listen to calls and have a conversation through the Jabra, transmitted through the radio into the car speakers. I am also...
  18. Newbie Bluetooth Question

    1G Mobile Electronics
    Hi folks. I'm taking possession of my 2010 RTL on Wednesday so I'm still learning some of the terminology so please bear with me. I am not getting the Navi package, but really, really wanted bluetooth. The option from the dealer is pricey, but decided to go ahead and get it done now, so it...
  19. New Generation iPod

    1G Mobile Electronics
    Has anyone used the newest iPod with Bluetooth (32GB or 64GB) in an EX-L w/navi? The Honda dealership is telling me the Bluetooth wireless capability will not work with the Ridgeline; therefore, I would still have to plug the Pod into the mp3 jack. Also, does the iPod interface display on...
  20. iPad integration

    1G Mobile Electronics
    Ok, now that we can anticipate the arrival of a 9.7 inch LED backlit screen that comes with a computer for $499, I'd like to hear some ideas of how Ridgeline owners will integrate these into their systems. The integration is only made possible (as far as I can imagine) through the Bluetooth...
