    I wonder when all cars will begin to have a navigation system in them regardless of what kind they are...

    I sure wish mine had navigation.

    I have an 04 Accord Navi and really enjoy the system. That said, the portable units give it a good run for the money. What I don't like is your locked in technology wise. Just like buying a PC, a few years later you wish you had a newer model. There isn't updates to the whole system, just the database. I do like the bigger screen, and don't have to remove the system from my windshield every time I park my car.

    I bought my girlfriend one of the wide screen Garmin units for the same price as the update DVD for my Accord. Yes, the screen is a little smaller, but I find it also easy to use, and the model I got her announces the name of the street, I wish my Accord did that.

    You can buy a great NAV system for under $200. I bought my girlfriend a Garmin Nuvi 250 for $114.99 on Amazon back in May.
  • All u gotta do is enter a destination like you regulary would. So if you have already set it to go home, hit menu twice so that you are on the original menu, enter the address, cick ok. A promt will appear saying: set as new destination or set as waypoint.click on set as waypoint.
    Hope that helped.
  • So i have an 08 accord ex-l v4. I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to turn the voice commands off while the navigation still shows you the route and turns you have to make? I realy dont need that annoying voice telling me what to do..lol. also is it possible to change that voice?
    Thanks

    Do the Nav systems not come with their own manuals these days? I'd be happy to help if I had a Nav equipped model, but I don't. Try the book?

    Take a look in the setup screens. There should be a setting to turn off the voice. The 04 models had the option of turning it off. lowering the volume, and changing the voice to male or female. I would assume your 08 has the same options and maybe more.

    changing the voice to male or female.

    Interestingly enough, when I upgraded to the latest CD for my 06, the male voice is no longer an option. I know they dropped it for the current generation.

    But as others have said, the setup screen has choices that allow you to make those kinds of changes.

    And, Grad, not sure about the OP (maybe he or she lost the manual) but mine came with a rather large navigation manual as a separate book. It's all in there. ;)

    Ok; I thought the NAV had a seperate book. Thanks for letting me know I'm not crazy... at least in this regard. :shades:
  • I have a 07 accord ex with factory nav. the disc says 4.56 there are scratches on the disc and the unit is unable to read does anyone know if a 4.61 dic will work? Thanks,
  • Honda DVDs are color coded. As an example, the one for my 04 Accord is orange. Update DVDs are also orange.

    If the DVD you want to use is the correct color, it should work.

    You are looking for a white DVD. The current version is 4.81 but you can use an older version as well.

    IIRC, the version before 4.73 had some issues. That may have been 4.61... I can't remember.

    I couldn't find a version history on Honda's Navi site: Honda Navigation

    When we switched to the new Daylight Savings Time, I had to turn off my auto DST feature on my 06 Accord. They always said that there would be an update from the dealer but I never saw one.

    So the other day I was switching the time manually and noticed I had a new feature in the Clock set-up menu. It gives me the option of choosing the old April - Oct. DST or the new March - Nov. time. It must have been included in the DVD update I bought (when they had a 20% off sale).

    It may have been documented somewhere but I sure never saw it. Kind of like losing the male voice option. At any rate, I'm happy to not have to reset the clock manually now. :)

    I couldn't find an '05 Accord equipped the way I wanted, so I settled for an '06 Acura TSX with the NAVI system...love this car.

    However, I can't find the menu to change the time...how do you get there in an Accord? Chances are, it's the same in the TSX...which is sold in Europe under the model name 'Accord'...

    There's a Set Up button on the dash below the navi screen. You have to press the "More" button on the touch screen to get to the clock settings.

    Just bought a new/2009 Accord EX-L with nav, and am loving it so far. Except, I can not find out anywhere how to change the trip computer from metric to real mpg. Litres per 100 kilometers is about as usefull as quoting horsepower in kgf-m per second. I'm thinking I can't change it myself because I have pushed every setup option there is, however is there a dealer option that they can change it.

    Owner's manual?
  • gerallgerall Posts: 4
    Cant find anything to chage trip computer, only km/miles on the nav map scale.
  • thegraduatethegraduate Posts: 9,731
    That's surprising. Sorry if it seemed like a dumb statement I made, but you'd be surprised at the number of people who won't read!

    Yes, its actually funnier than that. Called the salesman that sold it to me, they said, hmmm beats me call the service department. Called service, and they said, hmmm beats me call sales. Then said the same thing, check the manual. The manual shows mpg and miles, but because its Canada by some magical process its in kms and litres/100kms. I am beginning to think there is a Canuk vesion of the software that won't allow mpg like everyone else understands. I even pulled out the Canada dvd and replaced it with the USA disk, but trip computer still does metric only. May have to find out what software version I need, and how and who to load it into the unit to make this happen. I see there is a card slot on the dvd in the truck, and am assuming that is for the techs to load updated software.
