Hi all. Recently bought a Civic EX. While impressed with the sat nav obviously don't need it all the time (I know the way to work, thanks). So, as an experiment, didn't press the ENT button to show the map when the Sat Nav started up the other day. After a while the screen turned itself off. "Excellent!" I thought, until the windows started to fog up. Couldn't tell what mode, etc I had the heater/AC on cos the information is on the Sat Nav screen, which was off. I had to bring up the Sat Nav to be sure of what I was doing with the heater controls. My question is- can you get the screen to come on & display something other than the Sat Nav map, the radio information for example? Thanks to anyone who can help.

Yeah just press Audio instead of the ENT button to get to the radio/cd screen.
I think you do the same with Climate.

Thanks. I ws hoping there would be a way to set it to just display that when the key is turned without having to press anything.

On the other side though - if you just press the 'Auto' button it shouldn't fog up in the first place :)

How do you get rid of the annoying press enter to confirm acceptance, surely you can get round this??? (There was a thread I though but can't now find it.)

There have been a few threads around this and not for want of trying this has not been achieved yet - unfortunately :(

It is annoying though isn't it!, I hate it, I really do, I'm not a moron and I don't think I have be reminded everytime I drive not to take my eyes of the road, the glovebox and boot don't come with similar warnings.

ATB,

it is annoying but is it really that much of a pain? on the grand scheme of things i dont think its worth the time spent to find out if its possible to bipass

i find it more of a pain when passengers sit in the front and start pushing the buttons assuming they know exactly what each button does, but alas they dont and annoy me (they are now banned from touching the dash)

By that poit though no one would ever have climbed everest or discovered America (fair enough on the second one, you may have a point [smilie=cheeky-grin:), but surely, because it's there is enough reason!!??

True. Does the climate control drain more power/use more fuel? I always found with my '03 Type S that with the cc set to auto I seemed to use more petrol? Thanks for all the responses guys.

I haven't noticed much difference with it on or off, I still get about 39mpg although the trip computer insists it's more like 44mpg.

The "Press Enter" screen is required by law, so there is no way around it.

It is basically you taking responsibility for using the Sat Nav while driving etc as that screen states you should only operate it whilst parked!

It does pee me off though having to do it each time!

Guess we can blame our American cousins for this, what with all the litigation etc Honda need to cover themselves... Remember the case of someone suing a microwave oven manufacturer? The user used the oven for drying off her cat which subsequently died! She successfully sued as there was no warning of drying pets in the owners handbook!!!

Cheers,

Gordon Bennett, is the world going mad, or am I just becoming a grumpy old f-rt.
Does anyone remember the film -- "Its a mad mad mad mad world".
It certainly is.:(

Think I will sue the breeder who sold us our Westie, as they didn't inform me he needed a haircut twice a year.

JTL,

Going off the original post here but if you think its a mad world take a look at this The man who sued his dry-cleaner for $65,500,000…(do pants cost that much?) My Little Corner for Thoughts and Rants think you are right..

Cheers,

44mpg? I'm lucky if mine reads more than 36mpg for any length of time. Although I'm sure my driving style has more than a little to do with that [smilie=cheeky-grin:

Correct

My daily journey at the stupid times of day before you lot are awake takes in 95% of dual carriageways and motorways. I hardly stop or even get below 50mph on my way into the workhouse.

My journey home is not too bad on most days either.

In every car I've had since doing this journey I've always managed to beat the manufacturers figures by about 4 or 5mpg. Not with the Civic though, always under what they reckon.

I reckon the trip comp is sniffing the exhaust fumes too much !
