    Has anyone installed a Motorola T605 themselves? I'm looking into adding blue tooth/A2dp capabilities to my '06 Honda Accord and have been looking at the T605. I know that I'll need to buy a 3rd party wiring harness (because I don't want to splice the existing wiring), but would like to bounce some questions off anyone that has actually installed one themselves.

    I've been looking all over the internet, but haven't had any luck in finding a simple step-by-step installation. Was hoping to see some pictures of the wiring so that I know exactly which/what wiring harness to buy.

    PS: I don't want to have anything via FM transmitter because of the poor audio quality and the pain of changing stations all the time...

    Thanks for all the help!

    Have you seen the installation guide from Motorola?

    It's not a difficult install but it takes some time. You don't need a wiring harness you just need to know how (and where) to tap in to ground, constant power, and ignition. If you aren't comfortable doing this you really should get it professionally installed.

    Ya, I've seen the manual, just don't know which wires to tap into for constant power and ignition for my Accord (gonna keep searching though). Thought I could get some pictures/video of someone else's install, plus then I would be able to ask questions about their install.

    What year Accord? It's easy to find a wiring guide online when you know the specific car.

    That's if you want to tap it behind the radio (probably what I'd do). If you want to use the fuse box as they suggest you just need to get yourself a multi-meter and test the fuses to find one (two actually) that do what you're looking for.

    That was going to be my next question, lol. Anyone know where to find the stereo wiring diagram for a 2006 Honda Accord Ex. It has a 6 disc CD changer and XM radio.

    Thanks!

    This tells you where to get them from the ignition harness: Diagrams

    I'd probably recommend the multi-meter approach at the back of the radio or the fuse box, depending on where you wanted to install the unit.

    Can someone with the T605 give me the measurements for the interface module (the actual piece that you see). I'm hoping that it'll fit nicely in my "ashtray" area.

    Can't post links or images or I'd post a picture of the piece that I need measured....

    FYI you could instead go wireless with the T505.

    I would go for t505 but I have an '09 accord and the fm transmition is perfect on it... I used to have an '06 accord and I tried the t505 in it before I turned it in and it was very "staticy"

    ps. the '06 accord had the xm hookedup through where the aux would be in the console wiring. You'd have to look it up but you might have to disconnect the xm radio wiring to get the bluetooth setup

    Sorry. If you're getting a high-pitched whine or hiss from the device in one vehicle, but not the other, the solution is to install a decent ground loop isolator in the offending vehicle.

    k, thanks...

    glad I don't need one of those in my new whip

    honestly, I mostly use the t505 speaker instead of transmitting it through fm. And I just use my aux to play ipod/pre tunes....
