My 07 Nav. system has a data version 20050830 and a software version 1.58.01. Is this what everyone else has or does anyone have the 3.60 version for fall of 2006, which is for sale on their [Honda's] website? I accessed this on the screen without pulling the DVD.

Does Honda's nav system have text-to-speech capability (i.e. can it pronounce upcoming street names)? Thanks.

No, Honda's nav system has no text-to-speech capability (at least in the CR-V), but I believe this applies to all current Honad/Acura models. The system does however support voice recognition, so it will react when you tell it to "Go Home", etc.

Interesting. I had a small interest in getting the navigation model but if it does not pronounce street names, it is not worth the extra $2k then.
Garmin Nuvi seems to be really cool compared to OE Navigation systems. The Garmin Nuvi comes with different accents as well - it is fun to listen to instruction in different European accents:)

Has anyone purchased a 2007 CRV with the in-dash navigation system? If so, would you please share your opinion as to whether or not the system is worth $2000 as opposed to the less expensive portable GPS units like Garmin, Tom Tom, etc. Thanks.

I have had my 2007 CR-V EX-L with Navigation for over a month. The system is awesome. It can give you voice directions. You can press a button on the steering wheel and say "Go Home", "show Lodging", "Show ATM", etc. When you are going by the system's directions, it is voice trained and when it needs to say something to you, it will turn the radio down a little bit(doesn't shut it off all the way). When getting to a turn, it says "Turn left in a Half mile" the it says "Turn Left in a quarter mile". When it says quarter mile alert, Half of the screen zooms in on the turn and at the top of the half in big letters shows the street name. The system also is touch screen, so everything you do is not done by some big nob. Overall the system is VERY good, it is very easy to use, and it is a nationwide phone book (and address book).
There is also other things that you get with that two thousand dollars. You get a back-up camera, which once you have, you find how much it helps, like when backing into a spot, you can see the curb so you don't hit it. Also, you get 270 watt sound system (instead of 160 watt), a seventh speaker, a sub woofer, and a digital audio-card reader.
Go For It!

They should have added blue tooth capability to the phone directory. My nuvi has bluetooth and I can dial any number from the data base using bluetooth.
Can you update your navigation system operating system, and if so how do you do it? I connect my nuvi to my laptop once every two weeks to download firmware updates to the operating system and to download icons, MP3 songse etc.

I've never used a GPS navigation system - can someone explain how to enter a destination? Typing an address without a keyboard?
