Hi there

I'm expecting huge problem. I have a 2015 Civic Tourer 1.6 diesel/ Elegance 6MT. My satnav is Hangin on boot screen with Honda logo, and after several seconds it starts again this infinite circle. I was already at Honda Austria but they told me that this device is dead so it can be repaired. Can anybody help with an advice. Ist there a known issue or should really change my device. I just attached some pics showing the situation.

Bye, Mano

There's always hope!

Starting simple, have you tried a full reboot? Hold the power until the unit fully shuts down (Screen off) then try turning it on once again. I'll have a dig around as there are some similar issues elsewhere.

This reset combo for bootloop issue doesn't work. Thanks, this is really the same problem as previously topic describe. I was today at nearest Honda dealer but they want to change whole satnav unit for 1750 Euro. And the Factory warranty expired in september 2018. Has anyone another ideea perhaps. The reverse camera is working(without guiding lines). So this is pure software issue, i guess.

How is your knowledge of android / tech in general?
If you use the CD Eject, and remove the small panel behind the ribbon cable to the display, you can connect to a micro USB Debug port and get shell USB Access to the headunit - That said, if it's not booting, you may not be able to.
It may be worth taking your question over to XDA, to see if they have any ideas for reflashing the unit. If honda want 1750EUR to replace, you'd probably be better off with a Connects2 kit and a nice aftermarket HU.

I'll do some quick research to see if I can grab an image of my unit that you could load.

Edit:
Not looking good unless there is bootloader access!

Have you considered contacting the dealer / Honda directly for good will assistance?

I just make some research, by XDA Developer forum, but there is no info how can i cure this bootloop issue. My AndroidOS knowledge are medium, with good (tech) PC skills(i'm engineer by the way). I'm stuck Today because after half an hour without electricity(i take off the cable from battery) the HU does'nt show any change. Hidden shell screen with brightness+power+menu button combo does'nt work altough. So i'm desperate and I just take the fuse out from audio circuit. So actually the honda logo at screen does'nt bother until i drive. For 3-400 euro you can have a nice android 8 octa core HU who you can install any kind of app from google store. That will my plan B in case when this Fujitsu Satnav failed to work.

If you can install the android debugging tools, you can access with the aforementioned micro USB located behind the cover in the attached picture.

You should be able to make out the tabs - pop those open and there's a micro USB port.

If you can get a shell on the device, those at xda may be able to be of more assistance, as that opens up some options.

If not, it may well end up being the aftermarket option.

One thought, do you have any USB devices attached? That can cause issues with PCs as you probably know; not sure if android is similar in that regard.

Hi,
Did you manage to solve the problem somehow? I have the same problem, the warranty expired about 2 months ago :( The dealer said they can only change the whole unit about 1600€.
Thank you,

Best regards
