Hi, So I have a 2012 Ridge line RT with no aux input area. It has the Aux button on the stereo, yet there is no where to plug in my Phone in to listen to my own music. I know I need to get this installed, im just wondering how and where I have to go to get this done.

Thanks

In the cubby above glove box is a headphone jack, which is Hondas idea of aux. I use a double male end headphone cable, and iPod for aux music. As for using phone..u got me on that.

For what it is worth.

Why didn't you just buy the 2012 Sport and you wouldn't be having this problem? ;)
In all seriousness, I do recall seeing someone do an install of an aux port on a ridgeline. If you search for it, should come up.

Don't know if you have a Car Toys where you are, but they can do it as well.

You'll need to install an aftermarket adapter that connects to the rear of the heading like a cd changer. There are plenty of options so you'll need to narrow down what device you want to input (iPod, iPhone, Android Smart Phone, XM radio) and in what method (wired or bluetooth).

Once you decide what you want, the install is a very simple DIY project. I installed a USASpec adapter when I initially purchased my Ridgeline and have been extremely happy with it.

I did one of those write ups, but the OP didnt seem too interested in DIY.

I would think any car stereo shop could install such a thing. Maybe even supply you with a nice bluetooth interface. And/or a cable living in the little storage box area under the radio which you just pull out to hook up the AUX source.

I actually do not know how this hooks up in the back of the radio. it may be integral to the harness and your truck may have a different harness than the one they supply with the Ridgelines that have a factory AUX input. Maybe somebody will clarify this that has some direct experience.
