#37 of 64 TSX NAVI Problems
Dec 17, 2009 (1:33 pm)
I have a 2005 TSX and my Navi is no longer working. I have had it diagnosed at the local dealer and it will cost me over $6,000 for a new unit or ship it away for repairs with no guarantee's for $700.00. I barely use my navi as I live in canada and most areas are not illustrated due to the region I'm in. I have boughten updates over the years. I have 160, 0000kms on my TSX and like the car. I did plenty of research on this navi system and at the time was the best on the market. Now I'm faced with no navi and limited settings for radio and heater controls. This is a non wearable part and all it does is sit in the trunk and read a disk. I strongly believe this is not my fault as the option is nearly 20% of the cars value at new. Now if I spilt a soft drink on the navi system yes I will be to blame. But all Acura is standing on is your off warranty. I would like to know if anybody has experienced any other problems with their own navi system or if there is any other forums out there that you read any articles on. Or if you know of any understanding dealerships out there that would know how to further diagnose the problem.

Does anyone know if we can take the nav DVD out of our new Acura TSX with Tech package and use on our 2008 Honda Accord? Our TSX has Accuweather as well.
Thank 4 any info

That seems like a huge rip off. The most likely culprit is the DVD drive itself which should only be a few hundred $. One of the main reasons virtually all cars have gone away from touch screens is their reliability. Most new cars use a joystick instead. You may want to visit Acurazine, wade through the various posts in the TSX section and if needed register/post a question there. They are helpful bunch.

It would take a few seconds to try it. You can also Google the version of Nav used in each vehicle.

Yes i have this same problem with my navigation in my 2004 acura tsx it stopped working right around 100,000 miles and i took it to the dealer ship and they said cause of the lines that had been in the disk that it was a sign of the navigation system wearing out. But I have subs in my car but im not positive it broke from that!!!!
#42 of 64 2010 TSX Navigation Error "Second Turn"
Jan 20, 2010 (7:25 am)
Anybody experiencing a problem with the turning instuctions by voice? My lady keeps telling me second right or second left turn when it's the next right or left turn not the "Second." She keeps saying "Second." I think there is a glitch in the Nav disc.

I can't say that I've noticed that. I glance at the screen to make sure about direction regardless of what the voice prompt says.

same thing happened to me beginning last month. 2004 tsx w/ only 70k. navi voice gargles and sounds like the game pac-man. directions work but voice command is useless because it is just a gargling noise. screen also goes in and out randomly and constantly requests a password. had to go back and get pin reset.

I am having the EXACT same problems with mine! Except sometimes, when the navigation resets and then asks for my PIN, the touchscreen is unresponsive. The voice commands do nothing at all when I press the button and give it a command except give me a garbled static computer noise. Have you been able to figure out the problem? I just bought mine from eBay.
