Mostly Great - Navi needs improvement

2009 Honda Fit Sport 4dr Hatchback w/Navigation (1.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Like many, my Fit gets much, much better mileage than EPA. My average over 14,000 miles has been 34 mpg, with a high of 43 mpg on a highway trip at 65 mph. It's fun, fun, fun to drive - I still look forward to driving it every day. The stereo is very good, but not great. People are surprised by how much interior room there is. Biggest complaint is the navi system. The POI database is so bad it's almost unusable. Missing lots of businesses and inconsistent naming which makes it really hard to find them.

Favorite Features

Most fun and inexpensive car I've owned.

Suggested Improvements

Improve ability to find POI in the Navi database. I have to know whether I'm looking for "Wal Mart", "Walmart", "Wal-Mart", "WalMart-Springfield". On my Droid phone, all I have to say is "Navigate to SPCA" and it figures it out. In my Fit I have to know exactly which category the SPCA is in.
