    How do you turn off the navigation system?
  • I currently have a 2011 CR-V with Navigation. The Navigation does not state whether it is giving you the fastest route. The only possible option is "Direct Route" (other options being minimize/maximize freeways, etc.). Is that comparable to "Fastest/Quickest Route" as you see on Garmins, built in to the Rav4, etc.?
    I am asking this question because I am looking to trade in my car for a 2013 CR-V but want to be comfortable with the Navigation before doing so.
    Thanks in advance
  • If you didn't trade in yet, you might as well go for a 2014 model in the coming months since Honda isn't bothered to upgrade the Nav yet!
  • Is there any way to turn off the voice only navigation requirement when the vehicle is moving?

    I can't figure out how to turn off that "feature." The nav thinks it's being safe by requiring us to use the voice commands instead of pressing the buttons but you still have to look at the screen to see where the command you want is located.

    I have a 2013 with this nonsense. It wasn't part of my 2010 so Honda added this but still hasn't give us Homelink.

    I purchased a 2008 Honda CRV...If I want to go shopping, and request for example the nearest Walmart. It sends me 1300 miles from home. Even though I have my home address in, and there are 4 walmarts within 10 miles of my home???
  • I have researched the Honda CRV Navigation system beginning in 2011.
    First, and probably no surprise, it is one of the worst available . After paying the price equivalent to a new Garmin with actual advanced features,8 I shelled out their special discount price of $100. I am a former CIO WITH VAST RESOURCES & contacts. Not one of the 2 year changes to our interstates was any different. Moreover, any upgrade must disclose exactly what has been upgraded. Honda did not have that info. I then took both the original and the update CD. I used a gov't program to compare both software and data. No software change of any significance, and the only change as I remember, was either in Montana or Alaska, however nothing anywhere near where I would be driving on the East Coast. Honda blamed Navtek who provides the yearly raw data to Honda where it can be accidentally changed because the file was not read only. I used my resources and contacted the development/IT section of Navtek. They reported on any upgrade , the data is 2-3 years behind.
    In essense, what I paid for was a duplicate of what I had with the version changed to reflect the current year.
    The upgrade comes with a 30 day money back guarantee, however, Honda reported that since the system now displayed the version change and year, that the original version was not backwards compatible and would need taken to my Honda Dealer. In addition they could not guarantee a service charge for backdating the nav system.
    A few anomolies:
    When searching for a known place, the system using GPS has my location, (the basis of any default search parameters. If if am within a few miles of the location but don't have the specific city or zip, the GPS provides any location beginning with those closest to me, just like every other Nav unit for the last decade. BUT NOT THE HONDA PIECE OF &$@. It begins listing locations in California, Phoenix etc. Again this an annoying bug to add to the other 25 egregious issues which make it only useful if all the name, address, and city is available. My technicians report the location from the GPS, nor the State listed have any bearing. It performs a nationwide search. The constant mailed ads are nothing short of an Internet Scam, and while slow, the FTC and I
    FBI Internet Fraud Unit will soon issue a "cease & desist order", a stiff fine and refunds to those who believe their "must have" blatant mis-statements. For those with I link and Nav. There is no reason why the Ilink of my CRV could not be upgraded with the same software which added additional features. However, unlike ALL their competitors, the former customers are at the bottom of the food chain. This is a Company that obviously has a totally new CEO and philosophy, or the same bunch, and I was just spoiled by the customer care at TOYOTA. My Honda has been 45 % modified with aftermarket pieces that I constantly am asked where I got this edition. Certainly not from Honda, the plastic/aluminum company where Consumer Report has not yet received my survey or the 10 refuted misrepresentations complete with data to back it up. Independent my $&@

    Maybe it's because I'm old school but why the need for Navigation system?It's a fact that the more high tech gizmos the more problems. I've been driving across this country for over 50 years and a good map is all anybody needs.

    I'm old school and have driven all over too (my first traffic stop was 48 years ago), and I love my nav. Not giving it back. Saves a lot of time and gas and frustration.

    You can keep your carbs too. :D

    Thank you rossgu77. I purchased an update two years ago because of a new highway but it wasn't included in the updated. I complained and my money was refunded. As for one of those anomalies: agreed! I was once blocks away from a local restaurant (Maryland) but couldn't find it so I typed in the name and was given a restaurant by the same name in Arizona!

    It appears these NAV systems are not reliable for a lot of people. Give me a good map anyday. There's no wasting gas, no frustration.

    Took my Garmin to California last week and used it to get around San Diego in the rental car. In the dark. No pulling over in odd spots and trying to find the interior light switch so I could find the street the restaurant was on (my Garmin had the restaurant listed as a POI. Just punch it and go).

    Please let me know if any info surfaces on the 2013 navigation. I am holding off a few weeks before I make a decision on 2014 Awd with nav. I test drove one. I was hoping they had blind spot warning as does the rav4. There is a blind spot on passanger's back window. If navigation is bad, I will get something else. If I am paying 30k I want it to be right. Thanks 5.
