Hi.
I have a Civic MK8 2007, and I was wondering if there’s any way to retain the clock screen display with an aftermarket stereo. I have recently installed a Sony XAV-AX 1000 head unit in my car, and it works like a charm. After this, I decided to play around with the wiring, and after an hour of thinking, I have managed to connect and map all the steering wheel buttons I need (without the need of connects2 kit, I can explain this in more details if anyone’s willing to know). Now, I am planning on making the dashboard screen to work too. I know connects2 provides some integration kits, but i don’t really believe it’s worth £60 just to change the time and date on the screen possibly for once every year - matter of opinion really. Will the screen light up if I wire the unit to the 12v ignition switch? And is there any workaround to just be able to set time and date and leave it as it is without this integration kit? Thank you in advance.
