Kit works great and was fairly simple to install. Only advice I can give to Honda Pilot owners is do not be a knucklehead like me and fight with that first plastic dash panel piece with two screws. LOWER YOUR STEERING WHEEL TO ITS LOWEST POSITION and that thing will slide right out and back into much easier.
I just installed the new GTA kit on my 2006 Honda Pilot and it’s sounds great! The guys (Maurizo in particular) at GTA were super helpful in helping me find the right unit. The video on Utube makes installation super easy even for those of us less mechanically inclined.

Im a 34 year old female and I just bought this kit and installed it myself. Wow! Didn’t take me that long and the video was super helpful! Thank you! I almost gave up hope in finding a way to play my music from my phone. Took me about 20 minutes. Great video!!

Wow Wow and Wow! I am so sad I waited this long to add something this fantastic to my Pilot. I am SO impressed. I am a huge music lover, and not having access to my sound library was becoming a serious issue. Replacing the head unit was a complicated option because my pilot has the rear entertainment system with DVD (RES) as well as the factory sub. This was such a fantastic and easy solution. The sound quality is excellent, and the functionality as smooth as you could ask for. I could hear no obvious difference between my CD’s, the Bluetooth, and the 3.5mm plug (for an mp3 file…have not tried WAV or FLAC file yet). The sound quality for phone calls was noticeably thin on my end and had a fair amount of noise, but my wife said on her’s it was very clear. The ease of use of this function makes it still worth it. Music stops automatically when a call comes in, and even picks up again after hanging up.
I ordered the Pure Bluetooth unit. The kit arrived in 2 days! I was unsure what to order as the RES system for the EX-L wasn’t listed. I emailed GTA and Maurizio replied the same day. He told me to order the NAV version as it has the correct Y cable so you don’t lose functionality of the DVD system. Ended up working perfectly.
The videos were incredibly helpful. I am handy, but I don’t do much with cars. I had my dash torn apart and the system installed and working in about 30 minutes. I elected to route the cables down to the center console and mounted the GTA unit underneath the cigarette lighter power plug. Looks like it is OEM, and gives easy access to the USB and 3.5mm jack. I used this other GTA video to figure out how to route to the center console:
It took several hours to get all the wires tucked away cleanly, but the final result looks and sounds absolutely fantastic. Maintaining use of the steering wheel controls and being able to operate my phone through the head unit is huge. I have both android and iPhone (Galaxy Note 4 and iPhone 5s), and both were able to connect without any issues.
All in all this was a fantastic purchase. I would recommend it without question. Do yourself a favor and buy the panel removal tools too. I couldn’t have done it so smoothly without them. Thank you for making such a fantastic product!
Just received my Pure Bluetooth yesterday. Watched the video for installing the Aux wired w/ bluetooth extension. Followed the directions from the video and had it installed within 15 minutes. It was a breeze to install. It’s been less than a day, but everything works flawlessly. Can control everything from dash or on steering wheel. Music sounds terrific and calls are clear.
Best money spent!!! Very easy to install just watch the YouTube video. Only complaint is I didn’t get it sooner. Great customer service!!!!!!
Ordered GTA’s carkit with blietooth extension for my 2007 Honda Pilot and have to say that I’m extremely satisfied with the quality of the product and the customer service provided by GTA. The installation took me a little more than an hour mainly because I was trying to figure where I wanted to put the wires for the bluetooth module and connector for the iphone/ipod. The video instructions were great as well. I plan to order another complete kit for my 2006 Toyota Camery. This is a much more cost effective solution than taking it to a place like Best Buy and purchasing what they stock, and having them install it. You can’t go wrong with this kit. 🙂
Kit works great! Installation went very smoothly. One handy hint that wasn’t in the video is to lower the steering wheel to the lowest position. It helps with the speedo trim. Much easier to get everything realigned and back together. Also if you have XM radio you will need the splitter. Wonderful product- wish I could get one for my old Ford.
This is by far the easiest kit to install. Followed the YouTube video and my kit worked beautifully!!!! You were great at answering all my questions so thank you! I wish I had installed it long time ago. The price was not that bad considering what the dealer will charge you. I definitely recommend this kit and this seller!
Installation was a breeze because of this video. Great job putting it together.

The only complaint I have about this kit is that I didn’t BUY IT SOONER! It worked flawlessly the moment I installed. Installation took 20 minutes after watching the YouTube video. I had been toying with the idea of having Honda install an Aux port – but for $450?? This is way better and connects directly to my iPhone 5s (with Apple lightening adapter) AND it charges so that frees up my lighter port to charge another device.
Had to call support during install for a question and call was answered on first ring and service was great! I am recommending the kit to friends without reservation!

“Had to come back to you guys for splitter since my Pilot has DVD, but once I received it and bought a short screwdriver, installation was a breeze!
Worked just like shown in the video. Kicking myself for taking so long to do this project! Took all of 15 minutes thanks to your awesome instructions
– thank you!”

“Just got GTA car kit for my 2007 Honda Pilot, took me like an hour to finish the whole thing, works as advertised!!!
I have been looking for something like this for a long time, Honda wanted to charge me like $400, and stereo shops could not get me anything cause the said the year of my pilot it could not be done.
I’m so happy and it was easy to install. The video is a great help, its bang on!

I wanted to thank you for a very high quality product! It was easy to install, I was worried about “taking the dash apart” but it was easy! It works as promised, I wish I had done it years ago.

“Google search led me to your YouTube video on how to install the car kit on a 2007 Honda Pilot.
I didn’t consider any other kits as your price seemed right and your video was clear and easy to follow.
Shipment was prompt. Received package in 3-4 business days after placing order.
Installation was quick and easy due to your video, which was extremely easy to follow. I Had an iPad in the car with me to easily refer to your video while doing the install. Took maybe 30 minutes. I just needed a flat head and Phillips screw driver for the install.
I have an iPhone 4 that I am using with the kit. Works perfectly as seen in the video. I ran the cables through the center consel as the video mentioned by drilling a hole in the base.
Being able to listen music on my iPhone through my car’s system was the key reason for the purchase. Overall I am very pleased with the product, ease of install and ease of use through car system.
I think I received good value. I’m not handy, so without video next option was for dealer to install. That would have run me a couple hundred for the kit plus a couple hundred for the install. GTA’s kit cost me a hundred bucks and did the install on my car in 30 minutes. So view that I’m net positive by a couple hundred bucks through the help of your video. And yes, would recommend this product to friends as well.”

“I installed the GTA car kit in 30 minutes for a 2007 Honda Pilot with navigation. No extra tools. I cannot express how helpful the video was if not for that I seriously doubt I would have tried to do this myself.
The only problem – trim panels came off a little harder than video showed but maybe your technician has done many hundreds more.
iPod installation ran cable into glove box – it was for my daughter’s car and she loves it.
I feel the price was right and I would highly recommend your products to others.”
