NAV Map Update email

Mon Mar 24, 2014 10:24 am

Did a quick forum search and didn't see anything on this, so I figure sharing this might be of interest to some.

Like many of you, my first visit to the dealer for maintenance didn't leave me with a warm feeling.

IE: They didn't have the foggiest idea what to do with lil' Sparky. They ended-up rotating tires and not much else.

No inspection, suspension tightening, pollen filter R&R, NAV update, etc.

They also tried charging me $29...

But Honda corporate hasn't forsaken me!

On Friday I received an email stating that a map update for my vehicle was available and would be shipped to my registered address within the next 30 days.

I'll post an update once I receive and install, but keep an eye on your emails. Good news may be on its way!

Cheers,

I received the email as well. I assume the update is on a disc?

Got the same email for my totaled '13, and have yet to get anything in the mail. The dealer says my 2014 has the update, but I'm doubtful. Anyone here get the media (disc/USB stick) yet?

I got the e-mail on 3/21 but no update yet (37 days later). Will post when/if I receive it, though I never use the built-in Nav. My iPhone is much better at navigation, so I just set it up via Bluetooth and use a navigation app.

Not sure what you mean by that... Do you find the built-in Nav better than any smartphone Nav?

Just got a shipping confirmation from "Moduslink.com" for delivery of 1 "Honda Meclo Yellow 2014 USB". Included FedEx tracking info. I'm guessing this is the mysterious Nav update for the Fit. Will let you know if it shows up and how it works out.

Does seem strange that is it coming so long after Honda sent the original E-mail (almost 3 months) and directly from Moduslink with no tie back to Honda or the Fit EV program. Its not like there are hundreds-of-thousands of these vehicles out there.
