Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - / Re: Adding SatNav to an EX 2016 model Jazz.

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?  Do I have a Sat receiver on board on my EX model?
Yes and I believe so. I seem to recall that all models with an infotainment unit have a GPS receiver. Probably because it's cheaper to build them all the same in the same way that all Mini Metros had reversing lights and wiring but the lower spec models didn't have the switch on the gear lever :)

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
Hi Michael. I brought a set of Winter tyres for my 09 Jazz. Unfortunately, didn't get any snow for the three years. I run a driving school and was hoping that winter tyres means I don't have to cancel so many lessons. But the changing of winter and summer tyres increase the cost so I brought a set of all seasons Nexen N'Priz 4S for the Jazz and then a Michelin CrossClimate for my manual Ibiza. The real test came during February this year. The Nexen seems good on the Jazz. The Michelin was good until I went up a slop with ice and it didn't grip so well.

I m now using Maxxis AP2 all seasons as they are good value and offers good warranty. Obviously I haven't tried them on snow yet but I guess they will be better than summer tyres in winter. During this hot summer, the Maxxis seems to cope well. I use UK tyres in Mill Hill. But I did get a set on eBay once for my garage to fit. This may be cheaper alternative.

I think in London, all seasons seems to be most suitable, rather than changing winter and summer tyres every 6 months, especially in view of the higher than average temperature for this winter.
