Cell phone/GPS audio thru front speakers on a 99SE

Postby SIDECARRICH » Sat Nov 01, 2014 10:11 am



Might anybody know if there is a way to have your cellphone audio come over the speakers on a 99SE?

Thank you

Easiest way I've found is an iSimple is31. Got mine on Amazon, works perfect, integrates seamlessly with all of the Honda stereo, CB, intercom etc. Cheap, & easy to instal.

You could put an AUX IN kit into your radio (Sierra Electronics does them), then plug the wire into your cell phone.

This should do the job for you just fine. I have one on my 1500 and it works very well indeed.

The reason I chose the iSimple kit is because 1) it plays music, in stereo through the headsets, and; 2) it can also play (in stereo) through the speakers. The Hollsco GPS input kit doesn't do either of these, unfortunately, according to their ad. There is a substantial price differential, too.

Correct, they really are two completely different products. The GPS Input is designed to inject (mono) audio into the intercom. This will mute the music (if playing) so that you can hear the GPS (or whatever else you have plugged into it) speak instructions through your headset. Just as the intercom doesn't play over your speakers, neither will audio injected via the GPS Input. People have used it to inject music, and while this is not what it was designed for, it will do so - with the caveat that the music will be mono, and the muting function of the intercom will not work as you expect.

If you are looking to play music, the best option is an AUX input that takes a direct line input from a music source. This will give you the absolute best quality sound, and will play over the speakers or headset. The second best option is a cassette adapter, where the radio "thinks" it is playing a regular tape cassette, when in fact it is accepting audio being provided to it through the adapter. This will give decent quality audio, with some background hiss and limited audio frequency range. The last choice is an FM transmitter. This is a miniature broadcast transmitter, that transmits your audio signal over an unused radio frequency, and you tune your radio to that frequency to listen to the audio. Of the three options, this has the worst audio quality and limited audio frequency response, and you will have to change the frequency regularly as you travel to ensure you remain on an unused radio frequency.

You nailed it, WA. I had several of the FM transmitters, and they...um...didn't work out. Even in my area, where we really only have a few FM radio stations, with each of the various transmitters I had to change channels every 1-2 minutes due to override. Most of it was spurious FM signal, but it was always enough to negate my transmitter. I gave 'em all away...mostly to people I don't like!

I purchased a cassette connecting unit it will plug in your phone and place the cassette in your player of coarse so controlling from your radio you can control your speakers or head set .most cell phones have GPS units in them.

Yes you may purchase it at radio shack for sure or best buy it is called a (Cassette Adapter). It will be quite simple when you see it .It will work for GPS ,cellphone, almost any device that you plug into. Advice do not close your cassette door on the wire when you put it in the cassette player.

I use a cassette adapter on mine, works great for now. I'll eventually send the radio unit in and have a plug installed but as long as the adapter works... I bought mine at Walgreens, saw it hanging where they sell cell phone cases and headphones. Think it might have cost 8 or 9 dollars. I use my phone like an MP3 player. I have never used a GPS device, I still like to use maps. Old school I guess..

Like Mh434, I went with the iSimple IS32. It's an FM modulator that has a 3.5 mm input jack to play through the radio system and a USB charger.
I have a RAM mount and hook up my cell to play music and GPS directions.


It's never too late to have a happy childhood!
