Default Routing Hands-Free Mic Cable

Hi everyone,

First post here! I'm about to install a Bluetooth hands-free kit in my 2004 Accord (with 6 CD changer and factory navigation). It's going to connect to the factory stereo, but I'm wondering where to site the microphone and how to route the cable there as discreetly as possible.

Does anybody have any experience of installing hands-free microphones that could give me some advice on routing the cable?

Thanks!

run it behind the dash.
take the a pillar cover off, run it up there and then back over to the rear view mirror tucking the cable into the headliner. it may be easiest to work from the rear view back.

this location will allow the mic to pick up your voice easily without having to turn your head and will keep the road noise down and in some cases even still works well with the window down.

On Hondas, I've been able to route and slide wires behind the A-Pillar cover and head liner without taking anything off.
