Review of the USB CD Player for Factory Stereo


Today we're going to be taking a look at the USB CD player for factory stereos. This CD player is available in two different versions, you'll want to verify with our fit guy which one's the most appropriate for your vehicle. This USB CD player is designed to work directly with your in-dash entertainment center to allow you to play CDs. Most modern vehicles don't come with CD players but you've probably got an extensive collection and if you'd still like to use it, this is a great option to be able to take those tunes with you.This will allow you to use your CDs with your factory display, changing whatever tracks you'd like and adjusting the audio, whereas if you we're using a line in you would have to make all those adjustments with a device that was plugged into the line in. This way it's seamless and integrated right into your system and it feels like it's supposed to be that way from the factory.It's small enough to fit in your glove box or other compartment. Let's pop in a CD and check it out.

All of your songs will be listed by track number on your display so you can choose whichever one you want to listen to. Additionally, all of your other controls will function, your skip, your pause, play, so it works just like a factory unit would.It will need to be plugged into a USB data port to communicate with your factory display. You cannot use a charge only port or else it will not receive the information it needs to function. Additionally, it comes with a 3' extension cable to broaden your mounting options so you don't have to be right next to your USB port. You can route this cable hidden behind the dash if you'd like and have it poke out and plug right in.

We've got ours mounted inside of our glove box here, but with the two-sided tape you can mount it really wherever you'd like, on top of your dash, or to any other panel. You do want to make sure that it's horizontal or 180 degrees or vertical at 90 degrees.To help you determine where you would want to place this in your vehicle I've got some dimensions for you. It's 6" long, 5 1/2" wide, and 1 1/2" tall.Now you've got your CD player plugged in but you don't see it on your display, it can take up to 15 to 20 seconds for your infotainment center to recognize the device after you've inserted a CD. We just inserted a CD a couple of seconds ago and you can see here that USB popped up and we can now select it to choose whatever track we'd like.Now, since your audio system does recognize it as a USB device all the functions will work with the exception of eject. You will have to use the button on the device itself.

Now, the manufacturer recommends that on some Dodge and Chrysler vehicles there may not be enough power available on your data port so you may need an external power supply to get your CD player operational.And that completes our look at the USB CD Player for factory stereos.

We do not have this item listed as a fit for a 2019 Honda Civic at this time. If we do have a cd player that is compatible with your vehicle it would appear in our fitguide, linked below. But this one is not considered a fit. 46946
