    My husband has also just bought a 3 year old CRV and the satnav is horrendous. It sends him in the wrong direction all the time. perhaps the modern upgrade software is better. Did anyone have any ideas on finding it cheaper?

    This thread (over 12 months!) is almost as old as the DVD in my Honda Sat Nav.

    I've looked for upgrades (the DVD in mine was nearly a year old - because that's the best update frequency - when I bought the car new) several times - with no success.

    The stuff on Ebay is either dubious - or of the same age (2004/5) as in my car. Other dealers sell mainly CDs .. but, again, no more up to date than mine.

    This FAQ on What Car seems to best describe it :-

    http://www.whatcar.co.uk/news-special-report.aspx?NA=223051&EL=3181889

    ....i.e. it's via Honda or nothing. The best advice I can offer is to carry a back up map! Or change the car - which I intend to do next month. On the plus side - it's been a pretty excellent car otherwise!
    If you want to test the depth of the water .........don't use both feet !

    I was under the impression that Honda sat-nav is an Alpine unit. So you may want to contact Alpine-Europe for advice.
    I know for a fact that the USA Honda sat-nav is definitely Alpine.

    Ditch the inbuilt and get a tomtom
  • hewhoisnotintheknow
    i wouldnt bother, roads dont change that much, use a bit of common sense if the road appears to have changed, besides it will always reroute you

    I'd just buy a stand alone Sat Nav. You can get a decent Tom Tom or Gramin for around £100 with up to date maps.
    It's my problem, it's my problem
    If I feel the need to hide
    And it's my problem if I have no friends
    And feel I want to die
