hi all, was looking for much needed assisstance.

after saving up for ageeesssss, i finally have got a civic 2.2 with satnav but just my luck it does not work correctly.

it switches on, the options work but when you input an address, it brings it up and then you ask is to set destination, it begins searching and calculating route as the hour glass at the top is spinning and the blue bar at the top moves but after a few seconds it states that it cannot locate anything and resets to main map.

when i put in the address or poi it eeasily finds it but when i ask to claculate route it does nothing, it attempts to but cancels after a few seconds.

it is also very slow to catch up, i ask for my current location and sometimes it comes up correct but when you begin moving, it doesnt change and is very slow in moving.

please any help.

Remove the DVD from the drive in the glovebox, and make sure it is a genuine Honda one, in good condition and you may want to post the version number up here.

It might be. Or it might be the drive, or (least likely) some other hardware fault in the satnav unit.

Check +1 ...

The Golden Rule - check the simple things first - no point beginning to field-strip your engine after a total shutdown, until you've checked that the fuel tank isn't empty ! ...

1} Is the DVD 'kosher' and clean \ unscratched

2} Does the DVD drive need a cleaning disc run

3} Is the DVD drive simply defective

4} Is the SatNav firmware corrupt (try an older or newer disk)

5} That would leave the SatNav hardware - and I've never heard of one that partly worked - when they go down, they go all the way

i have gone and pulled out the dvd and cleaned in, the number on it read

EUROPE 2005-2006 V3.02 APN453103

As previousally stated, it can find my curreny location, the gps signal is gree which means it is excellent but when you program any destination, it begins calculating and after a few seconds says something like unable to locate destination try another destination or something like that.

it says this for any destination i put in, it brings us what im looking for when i search but when i ask to calculate route nothing.

but if i ask current location, it gives that correct,

ive tried in various places, open spaces thinking it is signal.

i want to add, the car was damaged from the tailgate some time back before i owned it, it has a spolier on the back also. dont know if that could be important.

like i said it finds my current location but will not bring any route up. it attempts to calculate, the hour glass spins but nothing.

thanks

If you want to go back to an older satnav version, if you simply put the old DVD in then you will get an error message.
To fix this:
  • Put the old disc in.
  • Wait for the error message.
  • Go into the diagnostic menu by pressing and holding Menu, Map and Back simultaneously (see photo below).
  • Select Version and press OK (push the big joystick in).
  • Select Download and press OK.
Then wait for the download (couple of minutes), the satnav will reboot and you are done.
NOTE: This method also works for Sat-Nav equipped 3rd Gen CR-V.

No, it's not working fine at all - the SatNav DVD holds the maps and the firmware, so a 'three finger salute' should reboot the system, and may just fix the problem - if your static location is correct, then it's not the GPS receiver - working out a route, is what the firmware does ...

However, V.3.02 is really obsolete ! - I suggest that you become a "Supporter" and see what [Pottsy] can do for you ;) ...

SAT NAV gone crazy

thanks for the advice, can you help me with my problem ive left a thread before but no joy,

my satnav is on the blink, its 2006 software, it does not work at all, the options all work but it does not pick up where you are even though the gps signal is green.

it used to tell your current location but it gets that wrong now,

it has worked for example when i go out of town but not always, i think it may be the reciever being dirty or something, or the fact i have rear view tints?

ive done the reset, cleaned the dvd, but still no luck, its too old for warranty, can it be the software is old, it sometimes looks like its playing catch up, very slow.

it knows where i am sort of as it gets the area sometimes right but it never shows where im travelling, any info on what road im travelling down, and when i try to calculate a route, it attempts to do it, the hour glass comes on the screen but nothing.

even though the gps signal is always green it looks like it never picks up a signal, as the marker just sits in the middle of the map and when you press the menu buttons nothing happens for about 40 seconds then the menu screen will come, it looks like it catches up late


please please someone help

thanks

at the moment cannot afford dealer prices and i was directed here for help, only just spent so much money to purchase car.

not at all happy, searched all over the net for help but no luck.

i have been told its because my rear screen is tinted then someone else told me the gps reciever is at the front so it cant be that,

then i was told to get the latest software and then told it was a hardware problem

i am so confused and upset.
