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.

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?

A normal person would expect a $2000 nav system in a premium car would be much better than an $99 portable system. We are very dissappointed that this isn't true.

A normal person would learn about the system before spending $2000 on it.

A normal person might spend a few minutes learning about the system to determine if it meets their needs before spending $2000 to purchase it.

Do I speak Swahili? This nav system stinks. It rarely understands what I say. It has a different address for my house than the correct one. When I leave my community heading S it wants me to go N to a different cross street & then head S. It won't xfer my cell phone #s so I would need to manually add them all in to the voice system, but as I said above it doesn't understand my English.

Its interesting that reviewers tend to praise the Honda/Acura Nav systems. I buy a lot of cars, and in my opinion the Nav is weak at best. Nissan/Infiniti system is much nicer and even looks cool with the 3d views and all. Does Honda even offer Nav traffic yet?

Yes, traffic is available. Like many other things automotive, the lead Honda once had in certain areas (like NAV) is gone and others makers are passing it by.
