•We’ve added spoken street names to the turn-by-turn voice guidance
•Enhancement and fixes
Terrible and expensive
There are many problems with this app, but the top two are the dependency of having to use a server for the maps (won't work offline) and horrible routing system. I've gotten lost with this app so many times. The last time I used the app it took me to a road that had very fine sand for soil and my poor Civic did not make it. I had to get my car towed away.
To top it off, the same day on the way back it took me to an end of road thinking it could exit to the highway. The highway was 60 feet downwards. Yep, I was literally near the edge of a cliff. I opened Apple Maps and although I could see it on my screen, the voice commands did well enough. Once Honda addresses these issues, I'll update my review.
To those with the "Cannot connect to server" issues, log off from within the app and log back in using your HondaLink account. That should fix it.
Only Works When Connected To Cellular Data
UPDATE August 28th. Navigation app is useless. Cannot connect to server. Try again. Customer Cares solution is pay $2750 for in car navigation. 3rd call was concerning. Honda no longer supports these apps. Discuss options with the dealer. Wow.
UPDATE APRIL 3rd. 2015. Now receiving 'Unable To Connect To Server Errors'. Rendering the app useless. Honda talked me out of buying the in car GPS. Now. I have no GPS. Unless I want to mount my phone to the dash. Where is the Zero Star rating.
UPDATE DECEMBER 2024. App not compatible with iOS 8.1,1. Based on an earlier email. This app may not be updated. I knew I should have paid the extortion fee for the full navigation system.
Only works when connected to cellular data. No way to download maps to the phone. $100 for the cable. $59 for the app. Shuts down if you switch to the stereo. Missed an exit because I forgot to switch back to the navigation.
When it works. The maps are pretty good. The turn by turn is great.
Only one star because of poor integration. Requires cellular data. Huge double cable to connect it.
Too bad Honda doesn't offer Apple Car Play on the 2014 EXL Civics.
Yuk but getting better slowly
I love my car but this app not so much. It does not always work. You have to plug it in and take it out and repeat. It's great when it works. I called customer service once, never again will I do that again. He thought since I was of the female gender, I knew nothing. Boy was he wrong. Now if he talked to my husband, that would have been a different story. Anyway, he said when Apple updated their OS, they would fix their system. I told him their was several updates since I bought the app and it still sucked. MEN!!! Another problem, we have two drivers so we had to pay for the app twice, one for each phone - no fair!!
