Even with air set to recirc if the aircon is working it should still be able to clear the windows as the system will be dealing with rapidly drying air inside the car and will not be dealing with fresh damp air from outside the car.  Just like the quickest way to cool the car in summer is to select recirc - in fact if you select  'quick clear' button or in the summer select a cold temperature on 'auto climate control' the system will automatically select recirc,  this means the car can concentrate on cooling a smaller amount of air rather than continually sucking in hat air from outside vehicle.  Downside of having recirc on for a long time is that air inside car can start to get a bit stale.

Prodding the 'quick clear' button is a good way to check if aircon is OK as it automatically turns on aircon, directs air to screen and ramps up the fan speed.

So, if Google maps is downloaded to the car, then I don't need the mobile phone to act as a hotspot.
Correct although Google maps can only download a particular area of the UK so you couldn't go hundreds of miles away using sat nav.
The Sat receiver just tells the car where it is on the map?

Almost all(*) Honda's I've owned (and I've owned over half a dozen) have had problems with ventilation. Not as extreme as the OP describes but it's an area where I feel Honda are weak. In the case of the Jazz I find that during winter I have to drive around with the ventilation set to 'windscreen and feet' to prevent the screen from misting up. That was problematic with my Mk2 because after an hour it would suddenly switch to pumping cold air out. Thankfully the Mk3 doesn't have that problem.

But considering I have climate control and that the CC is clearly designed to address the issue I've still unimpressed. I mean on a cold evening it will automatically direct the vents to the screen, which shows Honda have thought about it. Unfortunately it only does it for about a minute which is pathetic.

(*)My first Honda, a Mk6 Civic was fine but then that was designed in conjunction with Rover.

Beat me to it, my first thought was the air recirculation set to "on". This can make a huge difference in cool damp weather.

My guess is the Air Recirculation is not set to outside air. Do you have someone who keeps setting it to that?

We call it the 'Anti-smell button' and only ever engage it when we are passing the local sewerage works or in the vicinity of poorly serviced vehicles chucking out clouds of exhaust fumes. Otherwise, it is always on the fresh air setting.

Like this?

Venus Orange, rare colour from 2004 to probably 2006/07-ish. My '07 brochure lists Blaze Orange instead.

Cornering hard is that!
I went for all season, as up in Aberdeen we rarely get a summer. So you can all thank me for this summers weather  ;D

Got the 16inch alloy wheels so went for these

Used to do the swap between summer and winter tyres, but a faff and invariably after taking off the winter tyres, it would be below 7 degrees C for a week or so  :'( Rarely vice-versa!

Do I have a Sat receiver on board on my EX model?

This has come up before, and the consensus was “yes”. See this thread:

The second question is, where’s the water coming from ? There shouldn’t be that much water inside the car. Are any of the carpets, or the spare wheel well, wet ? If so that might indicate a leak that lets rainwater in, maybe a door seal.

The only thing I can imagine is that either your aircon isn't actually working correctly or it is set at the wrong settings for the conditions.

If you are in the UK at this time of the year, your aircon is switched on, ventilation set to fresh air, not recirculating and the air is blowing onto the windscreen and the heat set to warm or hot then it should clear the screen after a couple of minutes at most, if you have had this problem on a previous car as well it probably isn't the car malfunctioning but something to do with the settings, if in doubt ask at the dealers for a demonstration of how to use the air con to it's best advantage, if it's not working properly they will be able to tell you and arrange repair.

Hope this helps, good luck
