#49 of 64 Nav System Overheat
May 26, 2010 (4:18 pm)
2005 TSX with Nav. Notice after driving the car for 30 minutes or so, navigation system stops working. Screen frozen, sometimes get message "disc read error' . Happens more often in hot weather. Checked box/player in trunk, when display freezes the box is *hot* to the touch. I believe, like a computer, it's shutting down because it's getting too hot. If I shut off the car for about a half hour, it works again. Had this problem for about 6 months but just discovered the heat issue. Acura wanted me to replace disc or player but disc isn't scratched and nav works fine most of the time, especially in cooler weather. Does chassis have a fan in it? Is it replaceable?

I have a 2010 TSX and have a problem finding places. I can never get anything to show up in my STATE!!! There are multiple spellings for some places, it is a disaster. I was looking for a Walgreens the other day and it wasnt in the database anywhere! My little Garmin does a better job. It almost looks like they took input from some users at one point and that is what they are using for a database. Has anyone else seen this issue?

Yep - it's a combination of the database with the way the front end software looks for stuff - certainly not as good as some portable systems.

I agree- some of the portables are better but I have had no regrets with the nav in my 06-

A friend of mine has a 2005 TSX four door and she tried to put a GPS in it and it blow the fuses. I know this is not the question you asked but I thought you could answer my question. Do you have any suggestions what GPS is best to install without blowing the fuses? Robert

Something is wrong with the GPS being installed - current gen portable GPS units consume just a few watts of power and should not pop even a 5 A car fuse. Or there's something wrong with the power socket into which it is being installed. Try it in another car to see if it does the same thing to eliminate the socket issue.

It did not improve with the 2009TSX. Still lousy navi and even worse voice recognition. $185 per year to refresh the map system is ridiculous. I bought a Garmin Nuvi with lifetime live traffic for less than that for my Z. My "free" cell phone form Verizon is junk but still has no problems with voice recognition. This is not a $ issue--it's a quality issue. In the 21st century I expect better software engineering. There is much to love about this car but the navi is not part of it. If I had it to do over, I would skip the tech package and just buy a better aftermarket radio and a decent Garmin.
#56 of 64 Any problems seeing 2009 tsx Navi Screen?

When driving 2009 tsx and the sun is behind the car, the glare off the Navi screen is BLINDING. Anyone have this problem? Better yet..any solutions??

Two weeks ago we bought a 2010 TSX and are very disappointed in the Navigation system. We having problems about finding locations and routing isn't always correct. A few times if we didn't know where we were going, we would have gotten lost. Also, I don't like the voice telling me to take the 2nd right turn etc., most of the time it is the next right turn. Also, a feature I like about my portable Garmin is that it lists the speed limit and my current speed wherever I am. This is a great feature that all GPS's should have. My TSX system doen's have this feature. Compared to the Garmin system, this NAV system seems inferior and much less sophisticated. Acura isn't responding to these problems. We've talked to the Service dept and Customer relations. They don't want to do anything about it. I think at the least they should give us the latest update free of charge. This Nav system is too expensive to not perform as well as my $99.00 Garmin.

If you love your $99 Garmin so much, why did you buy a Tech TSX?
