    Hi all,

    I have just purchased a new used Honda CR-V 2012 version. It is the basic S version but had to grab it at the price as it only had 26k on the clock and drives like a new car.

    Can anyone advise me on this. I would like to replace the stereo with one that has bluetooth. I want to keep it to the original honda stereo. I have seen one for a good price with BT. The questions I am asking mysfelf are as follows:

    1) will I have to install a separate bluetooth mic?
    2) Does any configuration have to be done in order to get the new one to work with steering wheel controls?
    3) Anythig additional I would need to buy to get this to work?

    I was not supplied with the original radio code So I am assuming I can get that from Honda (expensive) ebay (cheap).

    If anyone has undertaken this task please help me.
