#9 of 10 Nav unit problem
Aug 14, 2008 (12:05 pm)
I have a 2003 Honda Accord Coupe with the NAVI and have begun to have an issue. The NAV system keeps rebooting (running through the initial screens). This is now even to the point where it asks me for the radio id (which I have memorized due to this) and sometime just goes black. The shop recommended a new DVD which I purchased and the problem, if anything, got worse.
I am now taking it in again for a second run at a diagnosis but if it is the DVD trunk unit (not the touch screen portion actualy in the cabin) it is going to run $4400 to replace (about $3600 if I buy it myself and not from Honda).
I am curious as to whether or not anyone else has had this issue and, if so, what the outcome was. As of right now I am likley looking at selling the car (with whatever decrease in value the broken NAV causes) as too many vital controls run through the touch screen which, for those of you lucky enough to have never had this issue, comlpetely locks up when there are issues with the DVD rom.
This will likely be my last experience with a factory installed system. It was great when it was working but one accessory that costs about as much as an engine replacement seems a bit much. Also, designing the car so that if that one accessory breaks, you lose most of the audio and AC controls seems like poor design to me.
Thanks for any and all insights!

Is this possible as an option? Specifically in Canada.
