How to Use This Manual - Service Express

The information and specifications included in this publication were in effect at the time of approval for printing. Honda Motor Co., Ltd., reserves the right,

Accessories Precautions
The GPS antenna is located in the dashboard. Metallic front or side window tinting can seriously degrade or obstruct GPS reception.
Signal noise from devices such as radar detectors, vehicle tracking devices, remote starters, and additional amplifiers can disrupt the navigation system. If you
install any such item, install it away from the navigation display and antenna.
Important Safety Information
WARNING
Using the navigation system while driving can take your
attention away from the road, causing a crash in which you
could be seriously injured or killed.
Only operate system controls when the conditions permit you
to safely do so.
Avoid focusing on the screen or manually operating the system controls while driving.
Enter information before you begin driving or when stopped. As you drive, listen to the audible instructions and use voice commands when possible. Pull to the
side of the road if you need more time to look at the screen or operate the controls.
Route guidance may conflict with street closures, road construction, detours, and out-of-date map data.
The system itself may also have limitations. Verify route information by carefully observing roads, signs, and signals. Always use your own judgment and obey
traffic laws.

Quick Reference Guide
Troubleshooting
Why does the vehicle position icon on the map “lag” a
short distance behind my actual position, especially at
intersections?
This is normal. The navigation system is unaware of the
width of intersections. Large differences in vehicle position
can indicate a temporary loss of the GPS signal.
Why does the “time to destination” display sometimes
increase even though I am getting closer to my
destination?
The “time to destination” is based on your actual road
speed and traffic conditions to give you a better estimate
of arrival time.
Why does my clock frequently change the time forward
and backward by one hour?
The clock setting is automatically updated based on your
GPS location. If you normally drive between two time
zones, the clock may keep adjusting the time. You can
turn this feature off.
2 Clock Adjustment P. 57

For more Information (P215)
How do I specify a destination when an entered city or
street could not be found?
Try entering the street first. Some cities are lumped in with
a major metro area. In rural “unverified” areas or new
subdivisions, streets may be missing or only partially
numbered.
How do I turn on the navigation system voice guidance?
1. Press the INFO button. Rotate i to select Set up and
press u. Check that Volume is not set to OFF.
2. Move y to select Other, rotate i to select Basic
Settings, and press u. Set Voice Recognition Tutor
to ON if you want the system to provide confirmations
and system prompts.
My battery was disconnected or went dead, and the
navigation system is asking for a code. Where do I find it?
In most cases, you do not need to enter a code. Simply
press and hold the VOL 9 (Volume/Power) button for two
seconds; the system should reactivate.

Voice Control System
System Setup
Your vehicle has a voice control system that allows hands-free operation of most of
the navigation system functions. You can also control the audio and climate control
system, and make and receive phone calls using Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink®.
The voice control system uses the d (Talk) and K (Back) buttons on the steering
wheel and a microphone near the map lights on the ceiling.
1 d (Talk) Button
When you press the d (Talk) button, a helpful
prompt asks what you would like to do. Press
and release the d (Talk) button again to bypass
this prompt and give a command.
A “Voice Info” feature provides a tutorial that explains how to use the voice control
system.
2 Voice Help P. 5
Command Input
If the system does not understand a command or you wait too long to give a
command, the system asks you to repeat the command.
When you give a command, the system generally either repeats the command as a
confirmation or asks you for further information. If you do not wish to hear this
feedback, you can turn it off. However, listening to the feedback will help familiarize
you with the way the system expects commands to be phrased.
2 Basic Settings P. 26
If the system cannot perform a command or the command is not appropriate for the
screen you are on, the system beeps.
On character input screens, a list of possible characters is displayed if the system
does not recognize your command.
You can find out which voice commands are available for a particular screen using
the d Help command. The system will display and read the list of available
commands to you.

The voice control system can only be used from
the driver’s seat because the microphone unit
removes noises from the front passenger’s side.
System Setup
To achieve optimum voice recognition when using either the navigation voice
control system or Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink®:
• Adjust the dashboard and side vents so air does not blow onto the microphone on
the ceiling.
• Speak clearly in a clear, natural speaking voice without pausing between words.
• Reduce any background noise if possible. The system may misinterpret your
command if more than one person is speaking at the same time.
• Refer to the Voice Info tutorial.

vehicle speed. The faster you go, the audio
volume increases. As you slow down, the audio
volume decreases. If you feel the sound is too

The signals received from the GPS satellites
are extremely weak (less than a millionth
of the strength of a local FM station) and
require an unobstructed view of the sky.
The GPS antenna is located in the
dashboard. The signal reception can easily
be interrupted or interfered with by the
following:
• Metallic window tint on the front or side
windows
Reference Information
• Cell phones, PDAs, or other electronic
devices docked in a cradle or lying loose
on the dashboard
• Remote starters or “hidden” vehicle
tracking systems mounted near the
navigation unit
• Audio electronic devices mounted near
the navigation unit
• Trees, tall buildings, freeway overpasses,
tunnels, or overhead electrical power
wires
The GPS is operated by the U.S.
Department of Defense. For security
reasons, there are certain inaccuracies built
into the GPS for which the navigation
system must constantly compensate. This
230
can cause occasional positioning errors of
up to several hundred feet.
Address Calculation
The destination icon shows only the
approximate location of a destination
address. This occurs if the number of
possible addresses is different from the
number of actual addresses on a block. For
example, the address 1425 on a 1400
block with 100 possible addresses
(because it is followed by the 1500 block)
will be shown a quarter of the way down
the block by the system. If there are only
25 actual addresses on the block, the
actual location of address 1425 would be
at the end of the block.
Database
The digitized map database reflects
conditions as they existed at various points
in time before production. Accordingly,
your database may contain inaccurate or
incomplete data or information due to the
passage of time, road construction,
changing conditions, or other causes.
For example, some places/landmarks may
be missing when you search the database
because the name was misspelled, the
place was improperly categorized, or a
place/landmark is not yet in the database.
This is also true for police stations,
hospitals, and other public institutions. Do
not rely on the navigation system if you
need law enforcement or hospital services.
Always check with local information
sources.
System LimitationsDatabase
In addition, the map database contains
verified and unverified areas. Unverified
streets may be missing from the map, in
the wrong location, or have an incorrect
name or address range. A message will
warn you if your route includes unverified
streets. Exercise additional caution when
driving in unverified areas.
The database does not include, analyze,
process, consider, or reflect any of the
following categories of information:
• Pavement characteristics or conditions
Every effort has been made to verify that
the database is accurate. The number of
inaccuracies you experience increases the
longer you go without obtaining an
updated map database.

that the service technician can refer the
issue to the factory so that a solution can
be found. Be patient, the service technician
may be unfamiliar with your specific issue.
