2012 Honda CR-V: I See the Music

February 15, 2013

2012 Honda CR-V

I like that the display in our Honda CR-V shows me the next few songs that are coming up on my iPod. Working in an open floor plan like we do at Edmunds, I have a lot of "writing music" on my iPod. When I'm in the car I like to shuffle all of my songs. So I spend a fair amount of time skipping tracks.

Ocean waves and classical music are great for drowning out noise at the office, but not exactly rocking tunes for the commute home.

Seeing ahead I get to skip more than one track at a time, or at least know what I'm in for.

My pet peeve with the CR-V? The stubby USB connector cord is hard to reach within the deep center storage console. It makes it awkward to plug in my iPod with one hand as it keeps moving around. I'd rather have a longer cord so I can use both hands or just a flush-mounted jack that isn't a moving target.

    Simple solution - USB extension cable. You could leave the extension cable connected all the time and plug in the iPod cable as needed. Piece of cake. The display is pretty nifty, by the way, and I definitely like your taste in music.
