    How To: Customize Radio "Welcome" Message

    I just found out today that you can customize what your radio displays when you turn your car on.

    1-Make sure the audio system is off
    2-Push and hold the TUNE knob, then push the power/volume knob on the audio control panel. You will see the first letter blinking.

    This is probably nothing new to some of you but I found it pretty interesting.

    Post and let us see what you come up with!

    make sure to have your key in the ignition and to the on (II) position but without the engine running. It's a pretty cool feature- I had mine say "engage" for quite a while because i'm just that nerdy.

    yeah, it's in the owners manual. You can display 16 characters

    Mine currently displays "NO FAT CHICKS"

    At first it read:

    AUTOBOTS ROLLOUT

    But then I changed it to slightly more clever:

    > MEETS THE EYE

    Yeah, I'm a geek.

    I have a 07 EX sedan w/o navi (b type radio). When I turn my key over it doesn't say "welcome" or anything. When I try to set the text nothing happens. Whats the deal.. the manual says nothing about that?

    EDIT: I found out its only for the coupe but the manual doesn't say that

    As far as I know, this can only be done with the non-navi audio system.

    If you have the navigation system, you can however do this trick one better. There's a way to change the navi splash screen to display whatever image you want. Look around on 8thCivic.com for more info on the navi splash screen hack.
