Many drivers are under the impression that the maps on their GPS are beamed down from the satellites. This isn’t the case, as they are actually stored as physical software on the navigation system itself. Many of the more modern Hondas come with an option to have in-dash GPS when you buy from an official dealer. The Honda Navigation System is no different to standard GPS devices, so when the maps become out of the date they will need updating. This is made possible using a Honda Navigation DVD system update.
Where to Get a Honda Navigation Update
The new maps come on a disc, and that DVD update can only be purchased from a company called Navteq. They are the only company that you can get a Honda Navigation Update from, but some websites have exceptional deals on these discs – I recommend a Honda Navigation Update website called GPS Bites. They seem to have the cheapest deals going so worth checking out before you do anything. Here’s a video from their website showing you how to do it.

The new maps will work on all models including Accord, Civic, Crosstour, CRZ, CRV, and Odyssey.
It’s worth noting that the manufacturers of this disc say that it’s worth purchasing because drivers who have the most up to date maps on their GPS will save money in the long-term. This is because they tend not to get lost, thus adding pointless mileage onto their journey – so in other words they will save on fuel and gas bills – reason enough to buy and the Honda GPS update disc is relatively cheap when you spread the cost over a 12 month period.
