Probably because they judged that few buyers would care, although some do care, a lot, and because they judged omitting them as benefiting reliability.Why the heck didn't they just put a CD player and/or a 3.5mm aux jack in the **** car?
Sorry Robb, but that doesn't make any sense. I play some instruments, and use a digital multi-track recorder, that records in full .wav format. Most audio file websites will only allow certain compressed formats (MP3, M4A, etc.). For a typical song file (about 3 mins), it takes up about 27 - 30MB in .wav format, and after compression to MP3, it's only about 3 MB (10 to 1 compression). Depending on the speakers, I can't always hear the difference, but through the headphones, I can always tell. It's sorta like taking a 30 MB raw digital picture, then reducing it to a 3 MB jpeg image - there will be loss of resolution.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.
It's your superior hearing. I generally can't tell the difference, maybe if I strain hard enough but they all generally sound the same to me.Maybe it's some musician gene that allows me to hear the difference, while others can't...then again, at my age, I guess I should be thankful. :nerd:
I have the Nexus 6P and I use Android Auto rather than HandsFreeLink.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?
