  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...

    2G Audio, Bluetooth, Electronics & Navigation
    We went to a drive-in and needed the FM radio. A few times during the movie, the radio turned off and the only way to turn it on required I turned the lights on. Any idea how to listen to the radio without a turn off? TIA

    1G Problems & Issues
    Bought this 2008 EX-L recently and the backlight for the radio has burnt out. Fuse is good. Any suggestions for fixing it? Couldn't really find anything online. I read that swapping out the whole radio would cause a problem with the anti-theft system. Any help would be appreciated!

    Dear Honda: (Feedback Forum)
    I've been taking these online surveys for over a year now, and the one I took this morning had a wierd screen shot of the radio head unit (supposedly in my 2018 RTL-E) audio systems settings.

    Greetings all. Been a member for a bit but my first post.

    OK, picked up my new BE on Friday.... I do have to say I like the truck even more than I thought I would. One thing I noticed about CarPlay, when using Waze for directions/traffic and listening to FM. Every time Waze cut in to give directions the radio source switched to Pandora thru CarPlay...

    I'm sure this is so simple that the answer is nowhere. When I exit and lock my brand new 2012 ridgeline, the radio anti-theft flashes red all the time. Is this what it is supposed to do? Or is this some kind of error message? Why don't they state this in the manual? My radio works fine. Thanks...
