2010 Honda Accord Crosstour: Doesn't Say Much
October 12, 2010
Whenever I have to drive the tangle of freeways that is L.A., I like to have a navigation system along for the ride.
The system in the Crosstour is easy to use. You dial in your destination using the big multi-function button in the middle of the center stack. It allows you to use it while the vehicle is moving, so your passenger can operate it without having you pull over.
Another nice thing is that it doesn't speak to you much. You know how some nav systems keep talking to you the whole trip. "In a quarter mile, turn right, in 1/16th of a mile turn right, in 200 feet turn right, turn now, make a u-turn, blah blah blah."
With the Crosstour, you get "In a quarter mile turn right." That's it. It doesn't nag you until you turn. If you need more information, you can look at the map.
Which do you prefer?
