Sat Nav check

Post by dcdick » Fri Nov 20, 2020 3:06 pm

How can I check how up to date the sat nav is on my EX

Used it the other day to find an address & it worked fine, for the return journey I asked it to take me home....however it decided not to recognise my postcode & I had to use an adjacent one to get the Nav to give a route home....not the end of the world as the adjacent estate (100 mtrs) is close enough BUT my previous car (2017 CRV) did recognise my postcode but only after an update about 16 month back when in for service.

Where we live now is 3 1/2 years old & everybody can find us OK (Council Tax office took 2 days after we moved :D )

As above, is there a way I can check the date of commission of the fitted sat nav myself ?

Just happened to check on Garmin Exoress yesterday and a new version is now avaiable.
Seemed to take longer than before to do the download and installation - well over an hour!

Have a look at this Honda site!

https://honda.garmin.com/honda/site;jse ... 443EA56093

You will also need "Garmin Express" on your PC. Get it from https://www.garmin.com/en-GB/software/express/windows/

Plug your clean USB stick into the under-dash board socket and start up the SatNav software. Go to "Update Maps" and follow instructions. Your copy of Garmin SatNav needs to load a small file to the USB stick.

When told, take the USB stick to your PC and download the update to it. When finished plug it back into your car and go back to map update and follow instructions.

Simples! ;)

Hi,
Can you let me know what the version was that you uploaded with the new updates. I have just checked Garmin Express and it shows as Version 3.33.
Not sure if my HRV will load it as its 5 years old and apparently the lifetime updates only last 5 years.
Thanks
Andy

Decided to update ours today as we were making a reasonable journey, it downloaded in about 8 minuets and the update only took around 18 minuets. Be interested to see if it's picked up any of the new roads around here :D

Downloaded the latest maps just now (took a bit less than 1 hour in total)

No luck finding our bungalow though so must have had the current maps installed by the dealer
Bit confused as to why it cannot find us as Google earth etc have shown us for well over 3 years

Did see a message about "no routing available as there are no detailed routing maps installed in this unit......one for Honda to sort out when things get back to some reasonable semblance of normality

Thanks for the link Geoff
