Hi Everybody

Just bought a 2nd hand 15 reg C RV 2.2 diesel, and LOVING it!  I have just one issue I can't seem to resolve (get my head around) and that's the satnav system and its many variations.  I'm not convinced that I have the updated software and database installed, despite what the dealer tells me.  I have attached a picture of the type I have, which I understand is an HDD type of Honda pedigree, not Garmin.  Device ID is ENB28017078B, Current software version is 1.20.0300, Current Database is Europe version IT203.02.00

Can anyone advise me if these are the up-to-date versions of my system please.

Hi Boris...welcome to the Club

 

I think you'll find that the version you have is the latest one...I could only find a 2016 version to update mine as the latest one.

It will mostly still work okay as I am currently running a 2007 version and it is fine in the UK as not much has occurred in the way of new motorways and A roads, however in Europe it is way outdated and would suggest using a SatNav (TomTom, etc) to navigate your route.

 

Cheers,  Trevor

Thanks Trevor.  There seems to be a really chaotic variation of models for Honda satnavs.  Looking on the web is almost pointless, as finding the same model is potluck, but when chatting with another motorist from the south coast who had the same hardware, he said that his dealer had told him that these versions of software and database were out of date.  I hear what you say about the UK road system, but a couple of weeks ago I went to Liverpool and the satnav wanted me to take an A road which had been closed off since the opening of the Mersey Gateway (Oct '17); it was not a major problem, but that is what got me chasing the possibility of an update.  If I find out anything useful I'll be sure to post it.

Best regards

Boris

As promised here is an update in my search for information about updates to my satnav.  I contacted Honda who supplied the name of the manufacturer.  Unfortunately, the first enquiry was through their form on their webpage with a picture of the satnav to aid their identification of the model, but you’ll get the gist; I just asked for information.  Their replies are in red.  Quite how they know the dealer will have an update while not knowing the version or when another update is due, I have no idea.  The search continues...…...

Yep, seems about right...Honda are way behind with their SatNavs and on-board electronics (e.g. Voice Control, SatNav, etc) compared to other vehicle manufacturers.

Shame, because the cars are awesome but they could do with enhancing their infotainment systems to come into the 21st century.

Good luck with it all
