Ok I will I admit I was too excited about my new Civic's looks to try every option at delivery. I was floored to find that a old guy like me can't play a CD in my new EX. How am I supped to access all my CD collections?? Please don't tell me that I have to put everything on my phone(it's already smarter than me.

Rip 'em all and get yourself an ipod touch. Dump all the music there, and you'll have your whole collection at the touch of your thumb. Why go through all the CDs? That's old school.

I rip CDs to Flash Drives, one drive for music and one for audio books. Flash drives are cheap, hold tons of data and works great with the Civic system.

You should really try to put all your music onto your phone, that's if your phone has the space to handle what ever amount you're looking to add. It's what a lot of people do, makes life easier. What phone do you have?

is there no aux jack in that version? Seems like every car these days would have a aux port. There still is likely a way to do it using an adapter and the USB port.

I checked out a dealer's 2016 Civic EX-T and my Moto e phone wouldn't pair with the car and the car couldn't find the phone. The owner's manual lists this website for compatible phones: http://www.handsfreelink.com/Honda/
My phone isn't listed and only a very limited number of phones are.
Does anyone have experience connecting to the new Civic? What phone did you use?
I currently listen to music from my phone in my 2012 Civic LX using a 3.5 mm cable, but this option is no longer available. Any ideas?

That list is incredibly limited. Lots of people have paired phones not on it with varying degrees of success. Still waiting for ours to get here, but fully expecting our Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 phones to pair. Perhaps I'm naive?

96746 isn't your zip code is it?

The most important thing is to have as up to date software as you can get. Your Moto e should at least be up to date enough to work, but you can always try to do a software update on your phone.

You can put hundreds of CD's on ONE 64gb flash drive. No more switching CD's and you can have your entire collection

no phone or ipod needed! let the audio system do the work with less layers

I was surprised by this too and did not know it until I after I took delivery. Overall it has not bothered me though because I primarily listen to XM radio.
I have a USB powered DVD drive, I wonder if it would work in the car?

I'm 60 and can't imagine touching a CD or my seven feet of LPs. I live off Spotify and occasional radio. Also have a pretty good collection of 78s and some cassettes even 8 tracks. Dustbin of history.

Have never ripped any of my 200 or so CDs, that would be a great thing to have. But unless I had a nice custom sound system in my car the increased quality would hardly be worth it.

Yeah I hear ya...I'm an old fart as well. Wife and daughter insisted I get a replacement for my old flip phone, so now I have in iphone 6s. Even though it has GPS, maps, camera etc. I would still prefer to transfer CD's (which use .wav format) over to a flash drive, which are cheap! The phone sounds are probably .mp3 format, I'm guessing, which are small in size, but lack the fidelity of true .wav format. Dang! Now I'm sounding like a techie! :nerd:

Actually your iphone and itunes uses mp4 files which are even more compact than mp3 but have better quality. Rumor has it that Apple is currently working on a next gen format for music that'll take up even less space and offer a big jump in quality over the current mp4.

Has anyone ever tried connecting one of those portable CD players to the car's audio jack with one of these cables?

Used to do it all the time in my 07 civic before i got my first ipod. Pretty much anything with a headphone jack works with one of those.
