    I bought an 07 Honda Fit....So far, so good. I like the little
    feller, nice
    and sporty with a tight 5spd transmission.

    I'm pleasantly surprised at the audio...the sound quality is good, the
    radio
    reception is ok...

    My question involves the AUX...Down in the console, there is a plug
    with AUX
    on it..it is next to the power cord plug..A mini stereo plug fits in
    the
    hole marked AUX and the word AUX comes up on the radio display.
    I have an Ipod Shuffle... If I connect the Ipod shuffle to the AUX
    ....nothing happens...I've read in the owners manual, but I'm not real
    sure
    about details..
    Any ideas? Is the Ipod Shuffle compatible with the system?

    Thanks.

  2. Should tell you in the owner's manual how to access the AUX in. On Scions
    you press the CD button twice...

    Press the AUX button to start playing.

    Do you see an AUX button on the head unit or near the jack?

    Certainly should be... Do you have the volume up all the way on the
    shuffle?

    Thanks for the replies...I've tried the suggestion offered, tapping
    the cd
    button twice only takes me to cd mode. Having the volume all the way
    up on
    the Ipod did nothing either.
    When I made the order for the car, listing all the accessories I
    wanted, the
    salesman quipped.."don't even order the MP3 hookup, cuz the guys in
    service
    can't get 'em to work, Honda doesn't have the bugs worked out
    yet"...What I
    got on the Fit Sport includes the MP3/AUX jack...I'm wondering if
    there's
    any truth to the salesman's comment...

    If the aux works for iPods, why has Honda been selling the iPod Music Link
    accessory?

    Sounds strange to me. There's not much to them...

    I have an 06 Civic, and the port works just fine...

    The iPod music link allows for control of your iPod through the stereo
    controls. An aux port is simply a line-in. It doesn't power the device,
    or control it.

    But you have to press the AUX button for the thing to work in the first
    place.

    Nobody has actually read the Owner's Manual, evidently.

  11. That's correct.

    But honestly, can't the carmakers do a better job with the manual? hey,
    Toyota--burn that Prius manual and pay someone some real money to come
    up with one that makes sense the *first* time through.

    From a Honda Service Bulletin dated May, 2006. It was before the Fit came
    out but the hardware is the same for all models, just different harness and
    adapters for different models.

    Howard



    Music Link works only with the Apple iPod; it

    won't work with other MP3 players. And it works

    only with the 4th-generation iPod, iPod mini,

    iPod nano, and iPod U2 Special Edition. If

    you've got an iPod shuffle or a 3rd-generation or

    earlier iPod, sorry, you're out of luck.

    better yet, burn the car and let the honda sell hybrid
    civics to the deperate greenies

    back to the original topic: looks like the crap from apple can't
    be controlled thru the usb port found on most aftermarket units
    these days and requires a dedicated (proprietary) interface:
    what a piece of crappola from appola

    Howard is right. I just had a look at the HSN document he references, and
    it says just what he quoted. The iPod Shuffle won't work with the Fit's
    radio.

    You might try something like this:

    http://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Product_Id=149006

    if the shuffle has the standard dock connector.

    This is specifically for the Shuffle:
    http://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Product_Id=247396


    I've been using the Belkin in my 06 Civic through the auxiliary jack.
    It charges the iPod, too.

  16. Hi,

    i have the same 2007 model, i have fitted a normal mp3 player with
    mini stereo audio jack on the aux plug and it works very well altougth
    you cannot control it on the steering.
    When i connected the mp3 player the radio automatically has switched
    in aux mode.
    If this don't work try a normal mp3 player.
