I upgraded my ANHC with Bosch Symphony horn, costed 1k for both horn + labour. Bosch symphony sounds similar to VW cars. The new horn is installed in stock location and I think its done without splicing any OE wire.

There is a kit available to get the USB. Seems easy to install, but needs removal of the Dash. I saw it in a Bangkok store. The installation manual is very nice, but doubtful if any service center will help with this. I dont want to try this DIY now.

Is it louder than before? The OE horn is meek. I am sorry to say this, but I need some serious intimidation to clear jaywalkers and ignorant auto drivers.

The Jazz's elephant ears like side mirror is both a pro and con. It tends to get nicked by 2 wheelers/autos even with utmost care.

I just explored this option today. It seems fairly easy installing it. All we need to confirm is the interface is same.
Open your glove box. A little pressure on both sides of the glove box after opening will pull it down. Its kind of difficult initally to touch the rear of the unit, but with a few times and patience you can easily do this. I just did it today.
I feel the support is there, I was able to feel an open port behind the unit. Wish you had bought the unit. Atleast you could have fixed it later if not today.

Can anybody give me the details of the kit? I am willing to give it a try.
Where and how can I purchase it? Also, mor importantly what is the cost ?

Yup. I am also interested in trying it too. If I have any updates, I will put it up in this forum. Alternatively, I am sure the USB should be available as a separate part in Honda. We may need to catch some mechanic in Honda and explore. But for first, let me try to get the interface at the back of HU. If the back unit point works out fine, we can get it from the U.S too.I think it costs around $100

Friends

Can anyone provide me with a contact (email-id) of Honda India, where product feedback/concern can be lodged ?

Their website shows contact/forms only for sales & service.

I want to send a feedback on Jazz's-
- sore throated horns
- foul smell issue

Hopefully, if they get enough such complaints, they might initiate a jazz 'recall'

cheers

Go to their facebook account [Honda Car India] > discussions
Welcome to Facebook - Log In, Sign Up or Learn More

and discuss / start a thread of your complaint - believe me it works wonders. My honda dealer tried to cheat me - i had logged a complaint and things got straight.

I am not sure about your issues but anyone having a serious / genuine complaint with the dealer / cars - is looked after seriously by the higher company people.

@snorting bull & adimicra, am interested in the USB upgrade. I also found the Honda upgrade manual - it looks doable but not sure if we can lay our hands on the right tools for a DIY.

Yes, I am aware of this link. But if you go through the details, primarily the way usb wire is visible, they have mentioned that there is a provision on the upper glove box, which is not available for us. Not that this is a big problem, but it makes me think if the compatibility to the HU to connect the ipod exists. If anyone goes for a repair or can get a photo of the back side unit of the HU, we can think of buying one from other country and connecting it. I am also trying to get the back of the HU picture.

I have thoroughly explored the options for USB interface.

On Honda America Site I have found following option for USB Interfact. It consists of USB Interfact and USB Adapter. Cost of both is around $200. I am not sure whether this will work in HUs sold in India.

Browse Accessories Page.pdf

The other option is a product of some other company. Here is the link

Honda / Acura 2003+ GROM USB/iPod/AUX interface car kit

I guess someone has to try and see what happens.

More discussion is on page 5 of my ownership thread on

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/test-d...-jazzed-5.html (Just Got Jazzed !!)

I sorely miss auto lock function in my Jazz as I have couple of naughty kids in my house. I want to install security system in the car as it comes with auto lock feature. I inquired at the Authorised Dealership and it costs around Rs. 5500/-. Has anyone done that. Is there any other alternative for auto lock function.

Honda USB Audio Interface - Bernardi Honda Parts and Accessories

This is the system you need to get. See the assembly manual for details. I am checking out some Jazz stuff next week in Las Vegas. I am doubtful about the DIY, so not getting this.

Let us know what all stuff you are checking out. Even if it is not DIY, if someone can gurantee the compatibility, we can get it fitted at the workshop.
I guess the GROM stuff is the best bet with BT and all.

I had my query/feedback sent out from this page - Although, it was directly related to a Post Service Feedback.
Not sure where the horn/smell complain would fall into on this page.
