Sadly mine has been somewhat unreliable with the infotainment system - off the road/at the dealers for getting on for a couple of weeks in total and requiring a £2,300 new infotainment unit to be fitted :(

Not too good for a brand new car.

Probably not, but my first thought when you said the control unit was behind the display was, I wonder if left in direct sun on a hot day could that overheat it.
Let's be careful out there !

I think it's inside the dash behind the screen, so not in direct sunshine.

Issues also happened on mine in cold weather too. The most recent failure before replacement was on the second start of the day, no matter the weather or how long the first trip of the day had been or how long the car had been left before the second trip.

There do appear to be issues with some cameras failing/crashing due to heat and Honda seems to be trying out software fixes when it looks to actually be hardware.

Other manufacturers have had windscreen mounted cameras in their cars for the safety systems for many years, so I'm not sure why Honda's are failing. Maybe they chose a cheap supplier?

I think you've just been unlucky, most on here have either had very minor issues or none at all.

There are a few reports here, on Facebook and also with car magazines long term cars where we are all having issues with the safety cameras and infotainment sadly :(

Yes, covered by warranty this time but when the warranty is up you are stuck paying £2,300.

Probably 15-20% of the cars value when 3 years old.

Most of the cost was parts, labour was under £100 to change the unit.

However, it's the biggest repair cost of any car I've owned - which includes 10-12 year old cars with over 100k miles.

I'm most unimpressed that it failed - the Jazz was my first brand new car, and specifically bought so I wouldn't have any issues at all. All I wanted was to visit the dealer every 12.5k miles to have a service, and not see a garage anytime else.

I have heard this week about Toyota hybrids in the US having issues with their main power cables... covered by the main 3? year warranty but when the main warranty is up the charge is £5k! Even though they are supposed to have a 8? year hybrid warranty.

If that's the case i prefer to only have music and radio and use my smartphone as infotainment.

The SE model without the infotainment unit is good value if you arenít using the screen.

I saw some with low mileage selling for under £18k a year ago, as the SE doesnít seem to be very popular.

The issue with the faulty infotainment units is that you canít even listen to the radio or do anything else for maybe a minute after you start the car.

That minute doesn't bother me as I'm in the garage doing my pre-flight checks :

Seat belt
Mount Garmin, set route to get live traffic
Mount dashcam
Turn off RDMS

By the time I'm done it's all up and running with Android Auto in satellite view, and so far, never failed. I don't turn my audio on till I'm out of the street, unlike one of my neighbours who wakes up the whole town.

Yes.

My car is garaged, so I don't need parking mode, and I bring it in and offload the footage to the PC after each trip,  just in case I need to refer to something for another site.

My dashcam simply lifts off its mount, single hand, without altering any lens angles for when it's remounted.
