Replace head unit in second gen TSX    (Score: 1, Normal) 11-18-2018 16:27

We have a 2012 TSX Sportwagon with low miles (50,000). It has the base radio unit (NOT the tech package). My wife and I drove a car with Apple Car Play on vacation and now she has Car Play Envy.

At first, I was looking at getting a new Civic HB (we like the flexibility of a hatch). But then I got to thinking that replacing the TSX Head Unit would accomplish this without the expense of a new car. The TSX has no res, does not get driven a lot (10,000 miles per year) and at that rate probably has another 10 years in it, easily. And we both like it a lot.

Has anyone replaced a head unit and added a back-up camera in a second gen TSX? If so, how much of a pain is it? I have previously replaced the entire sound system in my S2000 and an RSX. The S2000 was a lot easier than you would expect, once I found speakers that fit in the doors without blocking the window.

The RSX Type S looked easy but was a total pain in the ass. I think I lost five screws in the netherland behind the dash and it was about six months of listening to odd rattles until I tracked them all down.

I can afford to have a professional do it if the job is a pain.

My skills are not up to the task.

The best would be to get a fixed quote from a pro that has already experience with Acuras/ your Tsx 2 nd gen.

For the unit I cannot advise, would shop a brand with at least 3 years warranty. Has it is annoying to have a piece of black crystal glass in the middle of the dashboard.
