I've heard that the 11G Civic will be getting a Alpine/Here based SatNav.

If so then traffic won't be the old restricted TMC RDS but will allow IP traffic via a tethered phone.

This also sounds like Honda are dropping Garmin and going back to Alpine.

Interesting. The new UK 2022 HRV has the latest headunit with Internet connected traffic.

I've looked at the latest HRV manual, after my contact gave me the heads up, and whilst the headunit looks the same the traffic instructions are different.

The navigation instructions and images are definitely not Garmin.

From the manual :

Online Services
To use this function, connect this navigation system
to the internet via Wi-Fi device.
Sign up for Online Services to obtain the following
services.
• Traffic Information available via Online Services
2 Traffic Information* P. 89
• Updating map data via Wi-Fi
2 Map Update P. 60
Different than my Jazz

See what you think, the 2022 HRV manual is here :

In fairness, the "new" headunits on the Jazz Hybrid and HR-V Hybrid are morphed out of the current and soon to be replaced US Accord models.

So while they're new to us in the UK, they are already outdated by Honda's longer term planning to dispense with headunits altogether and to collaborate with Google for ICE etc.

I've been experimenting with Android Auto wireless and it's working perfectly so not having this Internet traffic is not an issue.

Honda enable iPhone wireless by default but disable Android wireless by default. My contact tells me this is because of issues with most older Android phones so it's disabled to reduce support.
Fortunately my Galaxy S10 is on the compatible list and fires up flawlessly.

The Jazz only has one headunit connected USB port and I use that to play my music so wireless was the route.

I've tested both Google Maps and Waze and unlike thousands/millions of others I prefer Google Maps. I find Waze too 'Fisher Price' for my taste.

Yes GM is a lot better.

Sadly for us Brits, by the time any Google-equipped Honda is available here, we'll be behind the model/product curve.

Thats assuming of course Honda hasnt completely exited the UK market....

A Google equipped Honda is already here with the 2022 HRV.

I think you misunderstood me - the actual Honda/Google partnership as per the link I shared doesnt kick in till 2H of 2022.

The 3rd Gen HR-V (2022) is not equipped with whats forthcoming.

It will be a completely new and redesigned interface.

Ah, right.

As a buyer, the HRV traffic connected would be OK for me. I wonder if they will update the Jazz unit to receive traffic.

As I said, Android Auto/Google Maps is fine though.
