Default 2 questions regarding Bluetooth 2009 accord

I have a 2009 Honda Accord EXL-Navi....I want to replace the HFT Bluetooth with a module from a 2010. Reason for this is to support siri over the car speakers....questions are...

Has anyone ever replaced a

39770-TA0-A01 - 2009

with a

39770-TA0-A02 - 2010?

Second question is, where is the module located...having trouble locating it.

The module is under the driver's dash area, next to the OBD-II port, on left side.

The electrical circuit diagrams for the 2009 vs. 2010 show the same similar wiring and 28-P grey connector that plugs into the module; so, even if replaced with 39770-TA0-A02, not sure it will make a difference in what you're trying to accomplish.

The peculiar thing is Honda part no. 39770-TA0-A01 sells for more than 39770-TA0-A02. The part looks to be made by Johnson Controls, 39770-TA0-A02 states revised on the label.

excellent info.

having the same wiring is a good thing - the difference he is looking for is in firmware - the 2010 model has firmware (software/programming) that is compatible with newer features. having the same wiring means it is ok for him to swap out and see if he gains additional features and compatibility (such as Siri on the iPhone).

Well I finally got around to it, the upgrade worked. The newer module works fine, in fact the voice of the system is sharper and clearer. And the voice recognition is improved. But most importantly, I can address SIRI from the car audio and hear it over the speakers.
