Re: 2012 cb operating manual/instructions

you need to havea cb installed on the bike to use it. honda stopped putting them in after a certain year. it then became an "accessory" part that yo need to add.if you only have one anteena ( on the right side of trunk) then you dont have a cb installed, its plug-and-play once you have it.

Re: PHONE QUESTION?

Once installed, you can listen to am/fm, intercom, Xbox,etc as normal. If you receive a call, those are muted and you push the button on the supplied controller. Once done with the call all functions are resumed. Install isn’t bad as the unit mounts under the left storage box.
