I am in the final stages of deciding if I should buy the Honda CRV EX-L with Navigation or Hyundia Tucson with navigation package or after factory navigation/backup camera. The hands free calling and backup camera is what I am most interested in with the navigation package. Radio tune identifies is a nice feature. Hyundia seems to have these options and is intuitive with the factory option. I've been reading mixed on Honda. Any suggestions for aftermarket product names or Hyundia verses Honda?

You probably already know this but you can get a map update, for $185, that seems to be more current. Also, you should know that there are no cell phones that will display Caller ID or other Bluethooth features. They don't tell you that and make you think it is just your phone. NO phone is compatibile becasue the system isn't fully Bluetooth compatible.

They told us it was fully Bluetooth enabled but is is not. No Caller ID, lots of other features we have in our Garmin, aren't in this 2007 system. The map data appears to be dated also. It is not worth the $2000 they want for this deficient system. They charge the same for the system in the Pilot but it IS fully functional. Our belief is they bought a ton of these systems, appear to be made in China, in 2006 and then couldn't sell them so they're still pulling from that inventory. Don't know that as a fact but that's the way it looks.
#119 of 181 crv 2010 navigation system

I've just returned from taking my crv to the honda dealer. I bought my crv new 2010 with the factory installed system. What a joke! I would never recommend this car and navigation system. If I want to find the nearest McDonald's for instance, I type in McDonald's and enter. What you get is the address for McDonald's headquarters in the USA. What good does that do me? Why would I even care? When I try other ways to find it, I come up with nothing useful unless I actually have the address but even then it doesn't know enough to default to my current location. My Iphone works better and faster. What a ripoff. Honda is aware of this problem but they are ignoring the complaints so the next sucker will buy a honda and pay a lot for something that doesn't work. I bought this car for the navigation and bluetooth. Don't get me started on the bluetooth. You're lucky if you can actually hear or be heard. This is my 5th honda (I currently have a 2004 Pilot) and my last. To make it worse, I just received an email telling me the updated disc is now out for $149. It won't fix the problem so don't buy it. Better yet don't buy a honda with navigation and bluetooth. Shame on you Honda!!
#120 of 181 CVR Nav Problem - Blank Screen
Aug 24, 2011 (5:13 am)
2008 CRV. A year ago I had the 'Disk Error' issue while under warrantee. They replaced the unit. So now a year and a month later (now out of warrantee) our screen has gone white with horizontal lines (including with reverse camera). You can tell that the buttons still work for the maps and radio but nothing on the screen. Ideas? I already checked the disk.

I had a similar issue with my 2008 CRV after two years I got it. The screen just went wild like a bad reception and then blank. It was still under warranty so they replaced the whole unit for free. They can't just replace the screen only, it's has to be the whole unit unfortunately. There is also a recall for CR-V 2006–2009 – ALL models with navigation and some 2010 models. These DVD drives cause scratch marks on Navi DVD. Check their website for details. The info is from Honda Service Bulletin 08-051.

Thank you. I am trying to get some consideration from the dealer but not sure it will happen. I am very worried that these Nav systems are real lemons and that we will be stuck buying a new one every 2 to 3 years at over $800 a pop. Not good. The disk isn't scratched this time so I think it is a completely different problem.
