#7117 of 7386 Re: 2007 ACURA RL TRIM LEVELS [golfnut5]
Feb 12, 2007 (4:13 pm)
When the long awaited 2005 was coming out hundreds of potential buyers placed orders in advance, most of us were not totally sure what the trim package was going to include. I had mixed emotions about the navigation system because I have resided in this community for about 45 years and knew it like the back of my hand. The new RL finally arrived and we had no option on the Nav system and I was thinking it would have been nice to put that $2,000 into larger wheels or some other option. In retrospect 2 years and 3 months later I can honestly say the Navigation system has been very helpful and I love the way it functions. Friends are investing in aftermarket systems that don't compare. In addition the resale value will be there. Glad it was included.

Good point, I cover a large territory for a company so NAV would work for me. My point was a $46,000 vehicle without NAV is hard to believe. I can't think of another $45,000 plus vehicle on the market without NAV.

It looks like the competitors (all of these are priced without the optional navigation system) offer similar pricing for non-navigation models:
Audi A6 3.2 w/ quattro $45,100
Lexus GS 3.5 AWD - 46,815
Infiniti M 3.5 AWD - $44,500
Mercedes E350 4MATIC - $53,825
BMW 530 xi - $49,700
The Lexus LS460 (not 460L) start at $61,000 without navigation system.

Along with that list, you might as well add the higher trim levels of those same cars, A6 4.2, 550i, GS430, E550, etc. I don't think any of the LPS cars come with nav standard, not to mention the even higher market cars that still don't have nav standard. Heck, LEATHER isn't even standard on a BMW!
#7122 of 7386 Trouble Receiving Calls thru HandsFreeLink
Feb 14, 2007 (2:17 pm)
I bought a Samsung SGH D407 cel phone because Acura's web site indicated it was a model that worked with Hands Free Link. The phone paired up with the system OK and I can make calls, but when the voice system tells me I have an incoming call, I push the button on the steering wheel and while the person calling can hear me, I can not hear what the caller is saying. Anyone else have this problem with this phone or any other? Any solutions?
#7123 of 7386 getting a 2005 owner's manual

Anyone know a site where an owner's manual for a 2005 RL can be obtained? Anyone on line sell them?

I don't have the problem you described, and don't know any solutions to suggest. Sorry
I have a bluetooth problem, too, and hope someone can help. I bought a blackberry and everything paired fine and all works as it should.....except it seems there is a lot of breakup on both ends of the call. It's as if there is a weak signal, but the phone signal is fine. If I switch back from hands free to the phone, all's fine. Does one lose a lot of signal strength with bluetooth? Have others experienced this problem?

I use an LG VX8500 and Bluetooth works even if the phone it's on the back seat. Also, no breakups either.
