Just thinking on the other sat nav thread, and possibly with an overlap to the ODBC2 thread - wonder exactly where the Civic stores all your favorites / home addresses?

or indeed if it would be any use to find out anyway

yep, sounds reasonable :)

wonder if this has anything to do with the other thread about how it appears to 'learn' your route preferences...

Ads, it's no joke! The system is made for Honda by Alpine, and although the menus are a bit different in places the core system is the same. That's why it's so good!

The interesting bit is, if you buy one to fit yourself where do you by the DVD map from and would the same DVD work in the Civic. If it does, would it have more up to-date maps and McDs etc? Perhaps it would also be cheaper :D

Just thinking - We know the DVD Nav unit is manufactured by Alpine, the head unit is Panasonic so who manufactures the display unit. All these components are interfaced together somehow, perhaps there is another way of interfacing a MP3 player other than straight to the head unit.

The whole combo is a custom job that Honda have put together. The Alpine nav, Pana HU, Honda voice control. So discs will not work from other nav systems. Alpine may have made it, and used their core system as a starting point, but there's a lot of Honda in there!

I've heard of some dealers not being to keen to sell this - I think it's a job that really does take the book time (or more). You also have to dismantle the tailgate to mount the cam and route the wires. Not easy!

Point taken. Looks like parking sensors for me then :?
