I have a new Honda Ridgeline with navigation. The XM satellite radio is great, but it is frustrating that the display screen will only display a few characters on the title line. Song titles are cut o
Only about 8 characters per line are displayed. For example, I will be listening to a football game and get a score that looks like this:
OSU 10 W
The full line would read
OSU 10 WVU 7
I have owned several other vehicles with satellite radio/nav and have never had this problem.

Hold preset buttons #1 & #6 down, turn on radio. Keep holding down buttons, record 1st 4, then 2nd 4, of radio serial number. Either register your car on-line with Honda to get the code or go to a Honda dealer.
I presume you want to initialize or"sync" up your navigation
system to the satellite. You will need the 4 digit navigation
code and the 5 digit audio code. Make sure your vehicle is
parked out in the open where there are no trees over it. Turn it
on and the nav screen should be asking for 4 digit code.That
is the navigation code.If entered correctly the display should change to the disclaimer screen. For the radio to work turn
that on and you should see in the space where the station
frequency appears,the words ENTER CODE.When the 5 digit
radio code is entered correctly the radio should start working.
I hope this helps as it is as short as I can make it. If you don't
have those codes then you will have to get them from a Honda
dealer. Good luck
Often times you'll need an aftermarket integration kit to get an XM ready car radio to work. This is a two part system including the tuner to tie the subscription to and a translator to code it so the radio face will understand and display the information accurately. You can find such a kit for your car here: http://www.tss-radio.com/isimple-factory-ipod-xm-integration-for-honda-acura-vehicles-hd1.html
I haven't done this to my ridgeline, but I did it to my 1992 accord. You can have any auto radio shop add a wire from the aux input on the back of the factory radio that comes out in a hidden place, like one of the little storage places under the radio. Just plug it into your ipod and push the XM/AUX button on your radio, and you're good to go. Should cost under $100.
