Update and Upgrade Your Navigation System Map

On average, the latest map update for Europe features 265,000 kilometers of new roads. *Fresh road data, combined with 2.5 million speed limit markings, improves travel time estimates and generates more accurate routing options.

The European map update also includes an average of 139,000 fuel stations, 231,000 ATMs, and 645,000 restaurants. These up-to-date points of interest are important to your everyday driving needs. From finding the nearest ATM when traveling around town, to locating a nearby petrol station on your next road trip, an optimized navigation system will help you drive with confidence and ease.

Remember, your Honda navigation system is designed for driving. Unlike portable devices with small screens and even smaller buttons, your in-vehicle navigation system can help you remain focused on the road ahead. Updating your map maximizes your driver-centric navigation experience, helping you get the most from your system.

To find your map update, enter the model and year of your Honda vehicle into the menu at the top of the page. Each product page details the map coverage area, highlights new road data, and provides clear installation instructions. Additional support is available via the Help Center. All major credit cards and PayPal are accepted.

Products sold on the Honda Navigation Store are manufacturer tested and approved. Each map update is customized to the navigation system in your vehicle. Shop with confidence knowing that you are getting an authentic product offered via a secure payment platform.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Is the Honda navigation update worth it?

The most frequently asked question is whether the Honda navigation update is worth it.

Without doubt, if you drive more than 2,000 miles a year and drive outside of your local area to places you aren’t familiar with, then yes, it is 100% worth it.

The software including on the disc is extremely accurate and up to date, provided the world’s leading supplier of digital mapping, a company called HERE.

Every day, HERE has fleets of specialized mapping vehicles driving around the United States, Canada, and Europe, tracking changes and updates to the nation’s roads. They also have support from existing customers who also submit road and address changes when they find them.

The HERE vehicles have motion sensors, 360-degree cameras, and laser light radar which combines with satellite technology and aerial imagery to create detailed and accurate road maps.

Those maps are then updated every year with the new release, with this year being the Honda navigation update 2021. But that’s enough about the technology, what does it actually mean to you and what do you get – and of course, is it all worth it?

Here’s what you get:

  • New and modified roads
  • Millions of point of interest (POIs)
  • Business addresses
  • Gas stations, hospitals, restaurants, tourist attractions, car parks, hotels and more.

That means no matter where you are in the world, you know that you will get to your final destination safe and on-time (allowing for traffic of course).

With the 2021 upgrade disc, here is some very interesting data with real numbers so you can get a feel for what’s changed and included:

  • 615,296 miles of new road added or updated
  • 543,760 new street names and addresses added
  • 314,754 road signs updated
  • 2,356,312 points of interest updated

For the price and cost, it works out at just over 10 dollars a month. Definitely worth it in my opinion.

How to update Honda navigation maps online

If you need more technical information on the actual installation process, then you can find that lower down the page, but let’s start off here with how you can buy.

Once you click one of the purchase links on this page, it will take you to the official map supplier for Honda vehicles, a company called HERE (also known as Navteq).

You will then see all the Honda models in a graphical format like shown below, so simply click onto the one that you own. Then a drop down will appear showing the years that an update is currently available for.

Here's a graphic showing the Honda models you can upgrade your GPS maps with

After clicking on your particular year (and it’s the year your car was made, not the year you last updated your maps), it will take you to a product information page.

On here you can read more about the particular Honda GPS update you are buying including what’s in the box, the geographical coverage on offer, instructions on how to install the new maps, and compatibility with your particular navigation system.

If the new DVD disc is in stock, there will be a blue add to cart button. Click that and you’re nearly there, as the next step will take you directly into the shopping cart.

Now all you need to do is enter in any promotional code (here are some for Honda) which might save you some money on the total cost, enter in your zip code, then click checkout.

The last step is to enter in your delivery and payment details, including your shipping option. For example, do you want overnight next day shipping, or are you happy to opt for a standard mail service.

Once your payment has been processed, you will receive the new Honda navigation DVD for 2021 in the post, and then you’re ready to install the new GPS maps – you can find out how to do that lower down the page.

Update: I have noticed that HERE has recently added a chat function to their shopping cart. If at any point you are unsure about what you are doing or what you need, you can message a support agent.

How much does the Honda navigation update cost?

At time of writing this guide, the Honda navigation update cost under $150 dollars. However, from time to time there are promotions available, and it can sometimes be possible to get the disc and DVD a lot cheaper at around $99 dollars.

However, these promotions are very seasonal, and in most cases, I’ve only seen price promotions happening once or twice a year.

Can I buy an update disc at my local dealership?

Honda dealers don’t stock new discs but might be able to order you one if you ask them. It is far quicker to order online using the links shown on this page.

You might also see the discs and DVDs being sold on websites such as eBay and Amazon, although I have read reports that counterfeit items have been reported when buying this way, so for peace of mind, buy from the official website.

Are there promotional codes and discount coupons available?

You might also be able to find promotional codes online. When they are available, I list them on the GPS Bites website – here are the Honda promo codes.

Again though, it is very, very rare for HERE (was Navteq) to offer any form or promotional discount, so chances are you might have to pay the full price if you are in urgent need of new maps.

Can you get a Honda navigation system update as a free download?

This is one of the most common questions I here with regards to the Honda navigation system update. I understand that, as the price can seem quite steep, so it’s a natural human instinct to see if something is available to get for free.

Unfortunately, you can’t get a Honda navigation system update as a free download.

Yes, there are various forums and websites out there which talk about successfully burning new maps to a disc, but I’ve never seen any real evidence that this works.

The reason being, every single update disc comes with its own unique identifier. This is a code that buyers have to type in to their navigation system, as they can only be used once.

I’ve also heard stories in website forums where people have attempted to download a free torrent version of the navigation software, only for it to either corrupt their computer with a virus, or disable their in-car nav.

It’s simple not worth the time and bother, as you could end up spending hours trying to burn a disc copy, only for it to not work, and possibly even damage your computing equipment and navigation system.

Do I really need to update my maps?

Every year roads change, new roads are built, and businesses will constantly change. If you haven’t updated your Honda navigation system for a few years, I have no doubt that you will have experienced following the directions to suddenly hit a newly built area, and have no idea where to go.

That won’t happen with a new map update disc.

It gives you fresh road network information, giving you accurate directions and routing so you can concentrate on enjoying your drive.

Why should I buy this upgrade when I can use a smartphone?

Great question, and I hear it a lot!

In-dashboard navigation is a lot easier to use, and it designed with the driver in mind. In Honda vehicles you have a large screen, full of detail, and with voice prompts designed to make driving as clear and easy as possible.

Using the in-built dashboard system, you can keep your eyes on the road and drive without having to take your hands off the wheel. Can you say the same for smartphone navigation?

And lastly, if you use the maps in your vehicle’s in-dashboard system, you won’t run the risk of incurring data roaming charges or losing network coverage.

In simple terms, switch your engine on, type in where you want to go, and off you go.

How to update your Honda navigation system

Despite what you might think, maps don’t get beamed down from satellites. Instead, the maps are stored in software loaded into your navigation system, and the satellite help plot your position and speed when driving.

And that’s why you have to install and update a Honda navigation system by loading a DVD or disc with software on it, into the system before you can upgrade the maps.

The new disc of GPS maps will have all the latest directions on including new roads, new business addresses, new intersections, highways, and anything that has changed or updated since the last map release came out.

This is how you do it.

  1. Buy the new Honda navigation DVD 2021 by clicking the promotional links on this guide. New updates are released annually, typically somewhere at the start of a new year.
  2. When the new disc is delivered to you, unwrap from the box, get into your vehicle, and switch the ignition on. The navigation system should switch on automatically.
  3. Next you have to take out the old DVD disc. Many vehicles will have the disc tray in the dashboard, so click the eject button. However, the disc in some other models might not be in the dashboard, but instead located under the passenger side seat.
  4. Once the old disc has been ejected, and with the car still running, insert your new Honda navigation disc and wait for it to boot up.
  5. The first thing you will see is an on-screen prompt asking you whether you want to install new maps, giving you an option to click “yes”. Click “yes” and the latest map software will start to install.
  6. But, before this happens, you will need to type in your unique customer reference number. This serial number can be found on the packaging or sleeve of your new disc. If you don’t have that, you won’t be able to update and install.
  7. The full installation will now start. It can take as long as 20 minutes on older models, but the most important aspect here is to not switch your car ignition off whilst maps are updating. If you do so, the software installation could be corrupted.

How the Honda navigation DVD can save you money

You probably want to buy this GPS update because you need the most up to date roads and directions possible.  Perhaps you are not sure whether this latest software disc is worth the money.

It’s not just about getting the latest Honda GPS updates, so you have the peace of mind in getting where you want to go. Whilst that is the main benefit, it can also save you money in the long term.

For example, let’s say you drive like the average North American driver (which is said to be 16,000 miles per year) then using the latest GPS maps in your Honda can save you up to $500 a year in fuel costs.


It’s down to the fact that you reduce your chances of getting lost, so you won’t end up adding all those extra miles and fuel costs onto your journey.

Not only that, but it has also been estimated that you could save up to 5 hours of driving time a year. If you are ecologically minded, that will help you do your bit for the environment as this equates to a reduction of CO2 emissions for you personally – great reasons to update a Honda navigation system.

And lastly, the advent of smartphone navigation has seen a switch of many people using their phones for navigation.

However, you can incur data charges when using your phone, and the network coverage can drop when driving, which won’t help you get to your destination on time!

<< Click here for the new Honda Navi GPS Upgrade for 2020 >>

What Does the Honda Navigation System Update Include?

The all new Honda Navigation DVD update will ensure that your in-dash system is upgraded with all the new streets, roads, junctions, subdivisions, and highway changes that have happened across the United States since you bought your car, or since you last installed Honda map updates.  This will give you the peace of mind to continue to use your in-dashboard navigation with reduced chance of getting lost, or being late arriving at your destination – this is because the routes will be as accurate as can possibly be with the new software release.

The new DVD and disc will include coverage for verified and unverified roads within all of the 48 contiguous United States so all angles are covered for use within America (with exception to the Hawaii and Alaska states).

In addition to that, the updated navigation map database also includes items called Points of Interest.  POIs are useful items that you can navigate to at the touch of a button and feature locations such as shopping malls, stores, accommodation, restaurants, tourist attractions, and much more.  The millions of POIs are updated on an annual basis and come free as part of the Honda Navigation System DVD upgrade.

Which Honda Models are Covered by the Navigation Disc?

If you own a Honda and it has in-built, factory-installed navigation in the dashboard, then the latest Honda Navigation CD will be 100% compatible in your car or vehicle.  For more information on your exact model and year please select from the links below:

Save Money with the New Honda GPS Update

If you decide to purchase the latest disk then you can expect to save time, money, fuel, and on CO2 emissions.  Below is a short graphical illustration which shows the money savings that can be made should you decide to upgrade your routes and directions software on your in-dash device.  This is because the auto navigation system will let you choose the quickest or shortest route and lets you help avoid certain areas which lead to a high fuel consumption.

These costs and assumptions are based upon a gas price of $3.5 US Dollars per gallon and an average annual mileage of 15,000 miles (based on US Department of Transportation figures for 2011) driven in both inner-city and outer areas.  It’s also calculated on a gasoline run vehicle of between 2 and 3 litres engine size.

Save Money and Fuel with GPS Updates

How to Install the 2020 Honda DVD Map Update

Installation and loading of the new map database is very straight-forward.  Once you have received your new upgrade of the latest Honda Navigation GPS DVD just follow these very simple instructions:

  1. Start up your car’s ignition and engine
  2. Turn on the power on the Honda in-dash GPS system
  3. Remove your old DVD and insert the new version into the disc tray or slot
  4. Enter your unique customer Authorization Code which is on the new DVD case
  5. The Honda GPS update will then commence so follow on prompts that you see

Once the new maps and routes are installed you are ready to start driving again, safe in the knowledge that you have the most up to date directions possible for the Honda Navigation system.

What About a Honda Navigation DVD Download, Torrent or Hack?

As well as containing any road changes and updates to the nation’s highways, this is the only official way in which you can successfully update your Honda Navi system.  You will see some websites which promise to offer a Honda Hack or Torrent copy of the DVD.  We advise that you never take this option up for a number of reasons.  For a start only the official map updates will work with your navigation system, and each DVD is shipped with a unique customer authentication code.

There is the possibly of harming your in-dash system should you download a Honda torrent version of the software.  This could in turn invalidate any warranty or guarantee that you have with your Honda dealer or the manufacturer.  It really is not worth it, plus many hack and torrent websites are renowned for also deceptively installing viruses and Trojan Horse programs on the recipient’s computer or PC.

Is the Honda navigation update worth it?

With the latest Honda navigation update release, drivers around the world are going to question whether the DVD is worth it and how much value for money it offers. To get to the bottom of this you have to look at data, statistics, and value.

Is the Honda navigation update worth it? The Honda navigation update is worth it if you want to make sure you have the 5 million new miles of roads added, nearly 700,000 address changes, and over 300,000 new speed limits added. A map upgrade can save you money on fuel, time, and frustration when driving.

In simple terms, the Honda GPS update is about saving money and making your life easier. If you can save on fuel and mileage, over the course of a year, that should make the update worth the money.

The bottom line is this; have you used your Honda navigation in the last 12 months and experienced that the place you want to go isn’t listed? Or it could be that you got lost because new roads have been built or changed…

If you answer yes to any of those questions, then there’s no doubt you will have lost money and used fuel you didn’t need to. It could be that you missed an important date or didn’t even get to where you needed to.

If you still need convincing on whether it’s worth it or not, here are what I believe to be the best reasons you should upgrade your Honda navigation system with the new disc of GPS map updates.

  • Drive the most fuel-efficient routes, saving money on gas with up to date directions.
  • Be able to locate millions of points of interest including gas stations, shopping, medical services, parking, restaurants, and accommodation.
  • Get to your destination on time with improved routing and time planning.
  • Reduce your carbon footprint as you drive less miles with up to date directions.
  • Avoid traffic jams with clever navigation taking you a better route.
  • Have the peace of mind you won’t end up getting lost and stuck in places you don’t want to be.

What’s on the new DVD?

Each year a new Honda navigation system update is released, drivers will benefit from the following GPS map upgrades to their system:

  • 5 million more miles of roads and highways.
  • 676,483 new street and road names added or updated.
  • 307,684 new speed limits and restrictions updated.
  • Millions of addresses updated including points of interest files.

There are a few different ways you can load the software to your vehicle. It could be as a DVD disc (CD), an SD card, or even a USB sticks. It depends on how your Honda’s system was designed.

Models and years available

Believe it or not, the first ever in-built navigation system was developed in a Honda all the way back in 1981. Obviously, things have moved on hugely since then, with every model in the range now having GPS as an optional extra. Here are the vehicles you can now get new maps for.

  • Accord
  • Civic
  • CR-V
  • CR-Z
  • Crosstour
  • Element
  • Fit
  • HR-V
  • Insight
  • Jazz
  • NSX
  • Odyssey
  • Pilot
  • Ridgeline
  • Type-R

It doesn’t matter what year you last updated in, or what year your Honda was built, you can get map updates for all the models shown above from years 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021.

Some drivers will look to update their navigation CD based on the current color. The different DVD shades that you can upgrade include:

  • 2021 green DVD map update
  • 2021 purple DVD ap update v4 10.10.i0
  • 2021 brown DVD map update v2
  • 2021 brown DVD map update v3b
  • And more…

Honda navigation promotion codes

From time to time it’s possible to get a reduction on the price of the new maps. You can do this with a discount or promo codes. They don’t get released regularly, so I recommend you click the promo links in this guide to see if any have been published on the official Honda map upgrade website.

If you can find a valid promo code, it’s simple enough to use – click to check for valid promotions.

Just copy and paste it, and then at the checkout phase look the box that’s titled “promotional code”. Paste your coupon in there, click “apply”, and if valid a percentage discount will be applied to your final price.

How to update the Honda navigation system

Updating your Honda GPS maps is a lot easier than you think, but don’t expect to be able to do it without spending money.

Continue to scroll down the guide and I will detail why you cannot get a Honda navigation system update for free… and if you try to, you could invalidate your Honda’s system warranty or even compromise the security of your computer.

Every driver has to buy an official GPS map disc. If you haven’t done so yet, here’s how:

  • Visit the Honda navigation store to check for the latest deals.
  • Select your Honda model from the page.
  • Choose the year your vehicle was manufactured.
  • Check for stock availability and click the add to cart button.
  • Complete the checkout process and wait for your new disc to arrive.
  • Turn your vehicle’s engine on.
  • Eject your old Honda navigation disc and insert the new DVD.
  • Follow the on-screen prompts, entering in your unique code when prompted.
  • Allow for up to 25 minutes for the new maps to install.
  • Don’t switch your ignition and navigation system off until the success screen.

How to update Honda Civic navigation system

Honda Civics are one of the world’s best-selling cars, and the higher end models come with in-built GPS – which will need annual updates.

Given how popular this model is, it’s no wonder why people look for free Honda Civic navigation updates so much, but always end up buying official maps.

To find out how to update your Honda Civic navigation system, please read the previous notes as the upgrade process is always the same, no matter what model or year of Honda you own.

How to update Honda Civic navigation system for free

The best things in life are free, right?

Well, this isn’t always true, and nowhere is this more factual then when it comes to navigation updates and CD discs.

And there’s a good reason why!

Whilst you might be able to Google through a ton of online forms and YouTube videos that promise they can give you a free or copy of this year’s DVD with free maps, take it with a huge pinch of salt.

Yes, it is true that you can copy or burn a Honda navigation DVD to a new CD, making a duplicate of some torrent download file you’ve found. But… it’s very unlikely that you will get it working.

The reason why Honda navigation CD downloads don’t work is because every Honda Civic navigation update needs to be officially registered. You do this by typing in your VIN (vehicle identification number) and GPS device ID into the official website to activate.

If you don’t register it like this, you cannot activate it in your Honda.

Once registered, the official website gives you a unique passcode to punch into your Honda’s GPS system, which then starts the install and update process.

Even if you have managed to find and download a free disc of the Honda navigation system update, then take the time to burn to a blank CD or DVD, and then put it in your vehicle’s system, it won’t work – because you cannot register it!

Unless you have a unique and official activation code, it’s not going to happen. The maps will not install for free.

Every DVD is unique. Each one has a special activation code that is single use.

But let’s say you are still determined to get a free disc. It will still come with problems, and there’s a very important reason why this is… the next question explains why!

How to update a Honda Accord navigation system for free

Just like the Civic disc, the Accord one is also locked so you can only install new maps if you have a one-off registration code. But there’s a bigger reason why this comes with risk…

You could download a virus or Trojan Horse file onto your computer because any website that claims to offer a free download is probably going to be a huge risk. You have no idea of what it is that you are downloading to your computer.

The free torrent websites know this and take advantage of your desperation.

Admittedly the free Honda Accord navigation update you decide to download could be a real copy of the official disc, but equally it could be a program designed to take control of your computer – you have no way of knowing until it’s too late.

Download it at your peril and own risk.

But it’s not just your computer that could be harmed if you download counterfeit software. You could also be putting your vehicle’s warranty at risk, which I will explain in the next point.

How to update Honda navigation system for free

By now I hope I’ve given you enough concerns about how trying to update a Honda Civic navigation system for free, or Accord, CR-V, and other models is futile.

To re-cap;

  • You won’t be able to install the new maps without a unique code tied into your vehicle identification number and DVD purchase.
  • You could end up with viruses on your computer if you download a copy of the navigation update for free from a torrent download website.

But there’s one last thing I need to bring to your attention.

Driver who install pirated software into their GPS system with a knock-off version of the Honda navigation DVD can even cause damage to the unit in their vehicle.

I read this forum post from a Civic owner that this happened to:

“Against my better judgement I visited a torrent website and downloaded what was advertised as a genuine copy of the Honda navigation system update disc. It took a while to download but once it did, I grabbed a DVD and copied it. I ejected my old disc from my Civic and inserted the free copied version of the CD. I switched my ignition on, and a load of weird characters appeared on the nav screen. I was freaked so took my vehicle down to the official Honda dealer who told me because I had downloaded a free dodgy copy, I had corrupted the GPS system’s software. It was no longer in the warranty period and ended up costing me more money that a new DVD update would have done!”

The moral of this story is this:

  • If you try and install a downloaded version of the official map updates you won’t be able to install them due to having no unique code.
  • You could end up with viruses and Trojan horse programs being installed into your computer or PC.
  • You might even possibly end up invalidating the warranty on your Honda’s in-dashboard GPS system.

To conclude, I do not advocate at all trying to get a pirate copy. It won’t work, and you could end up spending more time and money on finding a free solution than it would have cost to simply buy the new disc in the first place.

For more information, watch the video from HERE (the official map supplier) below. It explains how the new upgrade can help you save on driving time, gas costs and more.

The latest update includes any road data that has changed in the previous 12 months. That includes locations as diverse as restaurants, gas stations, and tourist attractions… but more importantly gets you to where you need to go in the quickest and more efficient way.

Still not sure whether it’s worth buying?

Do you think it’s still worth trying to download a hacked version of the Honda navigation update?

Keep reading as the following FAQs are bound to convince you that buying official GPS maps are the only route worth taking. It also includes details on how to reset your system and where the new disc or DVD should be loaded.

Do you need to update your Honda GPS maps?

No, it’s not mandatory. Your GPS system will still operate, but it just means the directions won’t be.

And contrary to popular misconception, the maps are directions in your Honda aren’t actually being beamed directly to your car by a satellite. Instead the maps are software that’s loaded into the system… and the satellite just pinpoints your location on the road.

You will also find that as you drive about you are bound to see new roads popping up here and there. Or perhaps you notice that businesses and stores change address? And it’s very common for new shops to appear – none of these changes will be on your previous Honda map update as the software won’t have the new locations and routes.

Unless you install new GPS maps, you won’t get the most efficient routing accuracy or be able to save on fuel.

How much do the Honda GPS map updates cost?

The price you pay for a new Honda navigation disc is entirely down to when you buy it. Prices can change from month to month with new promotions. The costs of the DVD can also depend on which regions you want – for example, North America or Europe?

You can also save money with promo codes. The HERE company occasionally run promotions through the year. You will need to click the link below to see if there are any savings available at the moment.

Why aren’t Honda map updates free?

You would like to think that having spent all that money on a high-end Honda package, they would then let you get free Honda upgrades for life.

Unfortunately, this isn’t the case!

The reason is quite simple. The software on the map DVDs isn’t created by Honda, but instead by a third-party company called HERE navigation. They are renowned as a world leader in the field of mapping and put every single road change into their software each year so the maps are as accurate as they can be.

Keeping on top of business address changes and road updates is an expensive process… which is reflected in the price that you pay.

How to get your Honda navigation serial number?

I’ve spoken at length about how every update DVD needs a serial number (activation code) in order to be installed. Typically, you will find it printed on the packaging or on paper inside the box so make sure you keep and record it!

HERE will also email you your unique serial number code too, so make sure you enter your email address correctly when buying map CDs online.

How often are new map updates released?

HERE release new maps every 12 months, with new Honda maps usually coming out near the end of a year. This isn’t always the case, but November tends to be the most common time of year for the new DVD to come out.

Can I use my map update disc in a different vehicle?

In most cases, no.

When you buy your new map update disc it will be unique to your vehicle’s in-dashboard navigation system.

Is a Honda DVD upgrade better than smartphone navigation?

Undoubtedly you will have that one friend who tells you that their smartphone navigation is way better than an in-dashboard device. But how true is this, and is your Honda’s GPS better than what Google or Apple can provide?

Let’s look at some facts…

Firstly, it’s understandable for people to think that using their phone to navigate with is going to be cheaper. You have the maps on your smartphone, and as long as you have access to an Internet connection, you should be able to keep the maps up to date.

But, that’s not the whole story.

If you need to continually download new maps to your phone whilst on the move, chances are you’re going to accrue a hefty amount of mobile data charges outside of your monthly plan.

With an up to date in-built navigation system which has had the new DVD loaded in, you don’t have that issue. You pay once every 12 months and that’s all.

But it’s not just about how much you pay. The inability to always have network coverage is key too… after all, we’ve all been in those areas where we can’t get a phone signal. You also don’t know when your phone battery is going to die.

Do you really want to risk that and possibly get lost?

It won’t happen with a Honda GPS; providing you have a satellite signal, you’re good to go.

If you rely on your Honda’s navigation system for long journeys or for business, choose a map update over smartphone navigation every time.

How to reset the Honda navigation system

From time to time you might need to do a reset on your Honda navigation system. Just like any technology, they can get buggy, particularly with the older CDs. In fact, it was a common problem between 2001 and 2007.

Other reasons for doing a reset is if you’ve mixed your DVDs up and have tried to install old map update versions over the top of newer one. This can result in a system error.

Once you’ve reset the system you can then install the new map disc which should fix any problems you had before. Here’s how to do it.

  • Access the diagnostics screen by pressing and then holding the MENU, CANCEL, and SETUP buttons all in one go for around 5 seconds.
  • A new screen will appear, where you now need to select the VERSION tab.
  • Next press the DOWNLOAD button which will then start to download the maps from the disc currently in the DVD drive.
  • Wait for the maps to load into the navigation system. Once that has happened, the system will then boot-up into the diagnostics screen again.
  • Now hold down the button that says MAP/GUIDE on it for between 5 and 10 seconds.
  • A new screen will come up that says COMPLETE on it. Press that button and then the RETURN button – this will then reboot and reset the system.
  • Now turn your ignition off and then re-start your vehicle to check the system is all working correctly as it should.
  • Now not all Honda models will be the same. Some versions of the Accord, Civic, C-RV, Fit, Insight and more will have a slightly different menu and button configuration.

Where is the navigation DVD in a Honda Civic or Accord?

This is one of the most common questions people ask; where is the disc slot so you can update the DVD?

Unfortunately, it’s not always in the same place and will differ between vehicles and years. But you can be rest assured that it will be in one of three places:

  • In the dashboard (the most obvious place).
  • In the glove compartment (you might not even have noticed it before).
  • Under the driver’s seat (not many people think to look here).

Honda did actually alter the position of the DVD drive recently, but you can always find out by reading your user manual.

How to copy a Honda navigation DVD

I do not advocate software piracy. I also don’t recommend you download free Honda navigation DVDs from the web.

But you might still want to copy your Honda GPS disc as a back-up in case the original CD gets stolen or lost… you don’t want to pay twice for the updates!

You will need:

  • Have access to a PC or Mac with a DVD burner or drive. It will need to read and burn discs and can be an external drive.
  • You will also need free DVD reading and decrypting software. The DVD Decrypter website offers a great solution.
  • You will also need software to actual burn a copy of the disc. For this I recommend software called ImgBurn (view website). It’s free to download and works great.
  • Some blank DVDs! But, don’t use standard DVD-Rs. They don’t have the storage capacity to take the map data that comes on the Honda disc. It will need to be a dual layer disc that can hold at least 8.5GB of data.

Copying the original disc

Now you’ve got all the right gear and software, you will need to make a copy. Here’s how you do it.

  • Insert the original Honda DVD into the disc drive of your re-writer.
  • Launch the DVD Decrypter software, selecting MODE menu, ISO, and READ.
  • Select a folder where you will be saving the back-up image.
  • Now select the PLAY button on the software (it’s green). This will start to save a copy of the disc to your PC.
  • You will now have 2 files saved onto your PC. There will be one ending in .ISO which is a large file size, and a smaller file size ending in .MDS. Don’t delete them!

Burning a new disc copy

You can now make a copy of the Honda navigation DVD onto a new disc. Take the original out of your disc drive, and put a blank dual layer disc in to the re-writer, then do this:

  • Take a new black DVD and put into the re-writer’s drive.
  • Launch the ImgBurn software and choose WRITE IMAGE TO DISC.
  • Choose which disc drive you will be writing to if your PC has more than one.
  • Press the icon that looks like a book.
  • Click the CHANGE FOR option and select the disc you are copying to.
  • Now select the yellow folder and choose the .ISO file we copied earlier.
  • Then do the same with the .MDS file.
  • Make sure the burning is set to the 1x speed.
  • Click the ISO TO DISC icon to start the copying and burning.

And that’s how you can make a duplicate copy a Honda navigation DVD.

My personal story

Let’s crunch some numbers on why I think it’s worth buying the latest disc.

  • Let’s say a Honda Civic costs you 17 cents in fuel for each mile you drive. That means it will take you 588 miles before you spend $100 on gas.
  • Let’s now say a new map update DVD costs you $100.
  • With up to date directions released on the Honda navigation update each year, there’s every chance it could save you more a load of miles driven annually.
  • It will optimize your routes, meaning you drive less, and stop you going the wrong way and adding unnecessary miles to your journey.
  • Over the course of 12 months, it’s probably going to shave way more than 588 miles off your distance, meaning it will pay for itself not once, but far more than that.

Here’s my view on things.

If you drive long distances and rely on your in-built GPS for business, it’s critical to update the navigation. My wife owns a Honda Civic and I often use it for work.

Three months ago, I had a business meeting planned that was 120 miles away.

The Honda navigation system had not had new maps loaded into it for a couple of years, but it had never been a problem… until the day of this meeting.

I set up with plenty of time to spare. I always give myself at least 30 minutes of leeway as I like to arrive early for business and don’t like to take any chances.

Everything was fine until about 40 minutes into the journey, when the GPS told me I had to come off the freeway. And here’s where things went wrong.

There was no longer an exit where I expected it to be, so I had to continue on down the freeway for another 5 miles before I could turn back on myself.

I ended up stopping in some back end of nowhere town with no idea where I was. My phone was also dead, and I doubt I would have been able to get a cell reception anyway.

I had to ask some really dodgy looking guys on how to get back on route, and I am pretty sure they gave me wrong directions on purpose – call me cynical.

To cut a long story short, I was 20 minutes late for the business meeting, had added around 50 miles onto my journey, and guess what… I didn’t win the business which I am pretty sure was down to my lateness.

From that day on, I promised myself I would never not update the Honda navigation again.

For me the Honda Navigation DVD is definitely worth it.
