    Adding Bluetooth?

    Mine is 2013 Sport trim - I thought it had BT - just realized it does not.

    One of Honda didn't have BT - I ended up changing the Radio when it failed - newer Radio came with BT - it works like factory setup.

    What might be a way to do it on this - the radio may not be like the standard easy to replace radio? Add ons?

    To make bluetooth work the stock stereo unit, is not worth it. You would have to separately buy the bluetooth module and wire it in. The cost and time do so is not worth it, IMO. I just replaced my stereo unit with aftermarket that not only has bluetooth, but sounds a lot better than the OEM unit as well. Just do a search. I am sure this has been discussed before.

    There are easier ways... It just depends on how greasy you feel like getting. I installed an auxiliary cable to the Media button and plugged it into one of these Bluetooth receivers.

    I used a Female to Female 3.5mm connector to join it to the aux cable to the receiver. Sure I have no steering wheel control, but it works for music and phone calls. Mine's an 06, so if the 13 already has an aux jack, the hard work is done for you.

    Like Mike did, I also just got an aftermarket adapter. Power plugs into the 12v port, audio plugs into the aux port on my 2014 5 sport. Device works great, I have this: https://www.amazon.com/Kinivo-BTC480.../dp/B06Y2D1ZX8
