Great idea for a new topic. The Navigation system is such an integral part of the new TL that I am sure there are a lot of tips and experiences people want to share. I pick up my new TL in 3 weeks so would to hear some pointers.
#3 of 662 Okay, I'll start it off.....

Questions: Can you locate a place or destination by entering a phone number, or , must it be an address?
Can the system be updated? Some have said it will be obsolete in three years.
How does it accomodate destinations that don't exist yet? (Must it have updates?)
Some time ago someone on the TL discussion site posted ALL the voice commands for the system....does anybody remember which post it was?

1. You can enter phone numbers for destinations only if it is a buisness. If you are looking to get to a friends home you need to enter their address.
2. The system can be updated. It comes in form of a new DVD-ROM with updated maps and possible software. The thing I don't know is when Acura releases updates, and how much they are. As far as being obsolete in three years, anything having to do with computers is obsolete the second it is produced. There is constantly newer technology being produced to blow the previous away. All I can say about it is that in my opinion it is an awesome system.
3. From what I have expierenced with destinations that dont exist is that you may need to find the physical address and go from there. For example when looking for the Krispy Kreme in Massachusetts I had to go on the web site to get the address because as far as the DVD knew there was no Krispy Kreme. So you would need an update the newest places of interest
And I believe the post you are looking for is on the Acura TL discussion. #4518 of 5074 free7bird / Voice Commands by gcruzsmith

Do you have to keep the DVD disc in the unit to use it, or do you just install/download it once just like you would install a computer program into a computer?
Jan 21, 2004 (5:55 pm)
You have to have the DVD in at all times in order to use it

Thanks very much! I think I have to have one!

Not a problem. you wont be dissapointed if you do, the only problem is actually finding a TL with Nav unless you plan on ordering one.

How has your experience been so far with the various voice commands? Some discussion has indicated that the command must be very exact to be understood by the system. Are there certain commands it responds to better than others?
