    Ya you can either get an adapter or splice it... Check with deck manufacturer for a honda adaptor.

    I think the mic goes directly to the plug at the HFT unit. Someone please check. Otherwise I heard that you can tap into the plug at the dome lights. It should have 3 wires (something like +/- and shield) but I am not sure which one.

    Does anyone know what wire (color) to splice into at the bluetooth module harness behind the glove box for the stock mic in between the map lights? I would like to splice my mic wire into the stock mic for bluetooth. Would this work?

    This is from the 2012 schematics that I have...

    Mic:
    Pin 2 blu mic +
    Pin 3 pink mic -
    There is no shield wire connected to the mic connector itself. This wire starts about 3/4 to 1 inch up the + & - wires and is wound around the wires.

    Mic to HFL: wire colors change after going through the interior fuse block at connector C214.
    Pin 1 brn mic +
    Pin 2 yel mic -
    Pin 3 gry (shield)

    If you use the stock mic on an aftermarket radio the performance will not be as good. The new radios have noise cancellation etc built into the mic. Not worth the hassle to wire into the stock one when you will get better performance from the aftermarket mic.

    I concur 100%. In order to avoid using my aftermarket (Pioneer) mic I first tapped into the OEM mic. While it worked, I received complaints of echos, distortion, etc on the receiving callers end. I now have the Pioneer mic mounted in the OEM location and haven't had any complaints.
