Allows you to use the factory dash controls to operate Alpine, Kenwood, JVC, or Clarion head units that are equipped with an input for a "steering wheel adapter". The DCI provides all the functions of the original Honda controls plus additional functions and features not available with the stock setup or any other "steering wheel adapter". Because after-market head units don't all use the same command sets there are some slight differences in how they operate with the DCI, so you may want to review the DCI instructions in the "Manuals & Help" tab.

Features of the Wired DCI
Kenwood users - If your HU wiring diagram shows the head unit brown wire connected to a "Kenwood Navigation System" then the DCI will not be able to "pause" the head unit. Set DCI option switch 1 to ON to enable the standard mute command (volume will lower but music continues to play). For these HU models Kenwood has changed the operation of the brown wire so that it only works with a Kenwood navigation system.
