Don't recall what the name of the button is on the bottom of the map screen(while it's guiding you), but it's the one on the left bottom corner. Click that and it brings up a few options. A button like "cancel current route" is on the left bottom of that screen. I haven't bothered t learn the voice command, if there is one, which I'm sure there is.
I'd take the time to read the manual or at least play with the nav and voice command while you aren't driving. It does a TON of things. I love that you can tell it what temperature you want the car at, even though your hand is like 2 feet from the temp up/down button!

And he told me that the navi comes with traffic updates. I didn't think about this at first but does this cost some sort of monthly fee? Does your navi come with a monthly or subscription fee of some sorts?

Can the navigation system in the car play regular dvds? I heard some other ones can.
#18 of 64 Hands Free Link

This isn't NAV related, but I didn't know where to post it. I just got a new phone yesterday - the LG UX245. I have an '06 TSX w/ nav. If you look up phone choices on the hands free link website, it gives you only 4 choices. One of them is a Motorola that U.S. Cellular doesn't offer, 2 of them are RAZRs, and I heard that they break easily, and the last one is a blackberry.... I don't need a blackberry. In addition, they listed phones that were "in testing," and the LG phone was on this list. I checked this phone out and it was only $50 (plus another $30 off in a mail-in rebate). I took a chance on it because of the price, and it works wonderfully so far, and the pairing was no problem. So this is just to let everyone know that this phone has worked fine for me, and you don't need to drop mucho dinero to get a bluetooth phone that works with your TSX!
#19 of 64 Navigation problem
Feb 23, 2007 (12:08 pm)
I have a 2006 Acura TSX with navigation. I am having a problem with searching for the names of businesses. For example, if I type in Starbucks, it returns a list of Starbucks shops over 100 miles away, even though I live in a major city with hundreds of Starbucks. Has anyone else experienced this problem?
If I do a category search by type of restaurant, that usually finds close matches, but if I enter a search by a place name, it finds places far away.

Is there a way to turn the Nav into a DVD player?
#21 of 64 Navi system is very poor
Mar 28, 2007 (11:30 pm)
I very much disagreewith uncledavid above. The Acura navi has far less information that a $700 Garmin both in roads and businesses. The darn thing dosn't even have The Homestead in Virgina which is a large resort taht has ben there over 100 years. It has a very poor database and the CD's to upgrade are $200 each compared to about 50 for an Garmin update. The voice recognition is also very poor- I ahve had the salesman sit in my car a number of times and it just won't work well. It's bad software that Acura is sticking us with.

The TSX in not nav traffic compatible. The TL(07), RDX, MDX(07), and RL(2005+) are the only acuras with nav traffic. Maybe the TSX will get it in 08.
#23 of 64 Voice command for calling a number
May 03, 2007 (10:55 am)
My navigation voice command is little annoying. Can anyone try this own theirs and let me know if it works fine. Whenever i speak any number the system will take all the numbers properly but when i speak a number staring with 409 it would start with something else and rest 7/8 digits will be perfact. Initially i thought it was my accent but then i had couple of my friends (American , Chinese and a british as well) try on that and the navi did the same thing. Any number that doesnt have area code 409 is fine but this area code seems to have issue.....

Did you say "four zero nine"? That should help somewhat.
