Holly Hill, FL – May 11, 2021 – Metra Electronics®, the leading manufacturer of aftermarket automotive solutions, is now shipping a new dash kit for 2016-2021 Honda Civic models (excluding the LX). The new 99-7821B TurboTouch® dash kit has a built-in 4.3-inch touchscreen and integrated electronics to retain most of the features normally lost when replacing the factory radio. The color touchscreen and hard buttons are located below the head unit and the screen shows climate and personalization settings, adding a high-tech look and feel to the dashboard. The backlit hard buttons can be customized with 250 different color options.
Metra’s newest dash kit fits either a Single-DIN or Double-DIN radio provision and makes stereo installation easier for Honda Civic upgrades. It comes with several of the items installers need to help retain safety and convenience features and is Micro “B” USB updatable. The included wiring harness and interface allow the OE Honda LaneWatch™ camera to keep working, ensures that the factory backup camera will work on the new screen, and retains the use of the audio control buttons on the steering wheel. An antenna adapter is also included to allow AM/FM radio stations to work on the aftermarket radio. If the vehicle has a factory amplifier that needs to be retained, the Axxess AXSP-HN, sold separately, should be purchased. (To know whether or not this applies to the vehicle, installers can check to see if it has the factory subwoofer or center channel speakers.) The 99-7821B dash kit is painted scratch-resistant matte black to match the original look and feel of the vehicle’s dashboard and is in stock now.
