#62 of 71 2008 Honda Civic Navteq Disc Version ?
Mar 02, 2011 (12:11 pm)
I purchased a 2008 Honda Civic Hybrid in February of 2008. Can anyone tell me what version of the Navteq map disc came with my Navi system in this car? Honda can't, and Navteq can only guess.

I just got the same exact issue on my Honda Civic 2007 Navigation system. The Toggle button used to pan the map works only for going left but not anymore for up/down or right. The Honda dealership offered a deal to replace the panel for $800 with 50:50 split of cost between me & them. That is expensive & just irritating for a small button issue.
If a lot of folks see the same issue, this could be a defect in the product and they should do a recall just like the recent defective sun visors.
Those who see the same issue please post here.

I have a 2006 civic hybrid. I have the same problem. The toggle only works to the left. I got the car new and the up direction was always a problem to move up, but it moved.

I would suggest those having the same issue to tweet HondaCustSvc as I have and hope to get them address this common concern.

Like carmencarp, my toggle button failed -- TWICE -- in my 2006 Honda Civic Si. The first time was a few weeks before the warranty expired. Now it has failed again. I always thought the part was weak, and difficult to activate. (You have to use far too much force to activate it. After it is activated it does not respond sensitively to pressure.) There is DEFINITELY a design defect involved.

Honda official called me after the twitter mesg and asked me to get a certified Honda dealer to run an assessment of the problem and submit an official diagnosis to him. Honda dealer says the charge for the assessment is $150 !!! There are again no promises by the Honda Customer rep or the dealer that this charge will be eventually covered by Honda. This just keeps getting ridiculous!!!

undhiyu24, Honda is not making it easy for us to ever buy another Honda. It's obvious what the problem is and they should be able say how much it costs to fix. When I have time I'll talk to my dealer and try to get more information. Such as, how much to fix ASSUMING it is the toggle (which we know).

#70 of 71 2012 Civic Hybrid - Navigation

I am looking into buying the 2012 Civic Hybrid... Curious what others think of the navigation system? Are there any big issues/bugs with it? How does it compare to systems in other comparable hybrid vehicles? Thanks!

I just sold my 2006 HCH with nav. Very disappointed in the factory-installed nav system and the total lack of support from Honda. Funtionality was very good WHILE IT WAS WORKING PROPERLY. After about 3 years, however, the toggle switch stopped working. This prevented me from being able to pan around a map and select destinations using this feature. I asked my service manager about repair and he said the only choice was to purchase a new unit for $4,000! Rediculous response from Honda. Instead, I bought a Garmin for $200 with much better features and lifetime upgrades for another $80. Honda wants $160 for an upgrade disk. The broken feature resulted in a devaluation of the sale price when I finally sold this car. In addition, the continually variable transmission has a well documented problem with "shutter" when starting from a dead stop and the dealer estimated $2000 minimum to correct this problem. Honda was also very dishonest about a well known rear wheel alignment problem due to parts being manufactured incorrectly that resulted in premature tire wear. Honda is no longer the quality company it once was. I recommend avoiding Honda altogether.
