12 Dec Updating Your Honda Navigation System
Your Honda comes with a navigation system to help keep you from getting lost in city and country. There’s nothing like visiting a strange city (even North Miami Beach) with no idea about where you’re going or what’s three blocks away from your current position. Checking maps on your smartphone may be inconvenient, not to mention unsafe while driving.
The Honda Navigation System is easy to keep updated after the current software maps become outdated.
Updating the Honda Navigation System
If you have the navigation system, you will receive a new DVD (available through the Honda Navigation Center) in the mail to update it. New maps are release annually, so be sure to check and see if you need to update your system. The DVD includes new roads, businesses, and whatever else may have changed since your last map was created.
First, turn on your Honda and get the navigation system started. There should be a DVD tray on the dashboard, or under the seat on older models, where you will have to remove the older map version on DVD. Once you’ve hit the eject button, removed the older DVD, and inserted the new DVD, you need to wait for it to boot up.
Your system will ask you if you want to install new maps. Click “yes” to start the installation. The disk package has a unique customer ID and serial number that you need to enter, so don’t throw away the packaging until you are finished. The whole process should take about 20 minutes.
Don’t turn off your Honda at this point, because it could corrupt the installation.
