New Navi needs help or upgrade!!
By needagarmin on


2013 Honda Accord EX-L w/Navigation 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl CVT)


Previous vehicle was 2009 EX-L w/ Navi.
New vehicle is 2013 EX-L w/ Navi.
Was very excited about the new Navi but leaves a lot to be desired.
Terrible voice recognition and system freezes up to point you have to turn vehicle off to reset!
Many features not available while driving anymore.. (I realize this is new safety standard.)
But, if voice recognition doesn't work system is basically useless.
Text message feature doesn't work with my Droid HTC Thunderbolt.
Guess system was only built for iPhone?
Squealing noise in front left wheel area or power steering.
Already had car at dealer with less than 3k miles.
Arm rest not as big as previous model and doesn't slide anymore..

Best Features

Better fuel economy Improved aggressive exterior styling on front facia. Fog Lamps

Worst Features

Improved Navi functionality or upgrades Go back to 225/50/17 tires? Why did they put 215/50/17 series on this model? These tires took some of the fun out of driving the vehicle. Improved voice recognition
