#19 of 64 Navigation problem
Feb 23, 2007 (11:08 am)
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.
#20 of 64 Can you make the Nav play movies?

Is there a way to turn the Nav into a DVD player?
#21 of 64 Navi system is very poor
Mar 28, 2007 (10:30 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 (9:55 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.

yeah i tried almost all posible way, like four o nine, four zero nine....it would take 0, 9 and rest of the digits but 4, instead it would start with something else like extra zeros and then some other digit and then 0,9,...... if i would say 414, it will take it correctly. it seems it has issues only with 409.
#26 of 64 HOW CAN I INSTALL AN AFTERMARKET NAVIGATION DECK IN MY 06 TSX?
Jul 19, 2007 (8:39 am)
I have an 06 TSX and a Kenwood DNX7100 navigation deck that I want to install in my Acura, but no one makes a kit for it. Does anyone know what’s the best way to install the deck with out spending over $500.00 for a custom made kit?
#27 of 64 Installing Nav Traffic in 2007 TSX w/ Nav?
Aug 23, 2007 (4:15 pm)
Hypothetically - if one were to pay through the nose and buy an XM NavTraffic box (used on RL/TL/RDX etc) from the Acura parts dept, could you replace your existing XM box and recieve Nav Traffic? Is that the only part that would need replacing or is there other parts that would need upgrading as well? Cosmetically there are no "traffic" buttons on the dash of those cars/SUVs with NavTraffic, so shouldn't this revision be possible?
#28 of 64 Acura TSX blue tooth dialing
Nov 30, 2007 (1:31 pm)
I am new to this forum, but I have been a very satisfied Acura TSX owner for well over a year. I bought my 2006 TSX Nav in late July of 2006, brand new, and have 43,000 miles on it and nothing has needed to be repaired.
Anyway, I have a RAZR phone that works well with the Nav system, but is there a way to use name dialing? I have only been able to make a call by either manually selecting a listing in the address book in the Navi system, or by vocally saying the number. Can I, for instance, say, "Call Bob" ? If I have that number stored in my phone as Bob ?
