2012 Honda CR-V: Not Quite the Same as it Ever Was

August 10, 2012


When you look at the 2012 Honda CR-V's nav screen, it's easy to say it's the same as it ever was -- dated and a little slow these days -- but it's not the same. And it's not as good.

In previous iterations of this nav system (all of them until 2012) you could program the navigation and have full functionality of the system while the car was in motion. You can't do that anymore.

Honda was the last Japanese hold out on this issue and now, if you want to actually use the products you paid for, you have to go German. VW, Mercedes, Porsche and BMW all give you control whenever you want it and they've got far higher speed limits, and far faster cars to worry about.
