Steering wheel control adapters..worth it?

Recommended Posts

So I just bought a new daily driver in the form of a 2008 Honda Civic 4D. I have steering wheel controls on it, but they are just for volume up or down and same with channel up or down. Is buying a steering wheel adapter really worth it? I didn't see much of anything related to steering wheel controls on the site. 

What I did find is that the adapters are expensive and have mixed results on effectiveness and longevity. This doesn't bold well with me either. 

I have an older Nissan Frontier that has no steering wheel controls and I always got along well without them, but I am unsure on my Honda. Yes it's convenient having them for the stock radio (which is absolute garbage), but I don't see how having basic controls would help me in anyway with whatever upgraded h/u I purchase. 

Any ideas or thoughts?

Even when i had them i always reached for the hu anyway. I never bother with it and spend my money elsewhere.

I guess if ya drive with your cell phone constantly in one hand  put makeup on read eat etc it might be handy.

Well I put my phone on BT mode then just go. Usually have playlists coming in from Spotify so I only really touch the volume up/down unless I'm switching music types, then I just switch the EQ to another custom setting. 

I can't say I have tried applying makeup at 75mph while I on the freeway. Maybe that will make it to my bucket-list when I have given up all hope in life. 🤣🤣
