Honda Jazz 2018 Sport Navi - Satnav getting lost.
« on: November 21, 2018, 01:40:53 PM »
2018 Honda Jazz Sport Navi - Purchased in June (my 7th Honda) is proving very disappointing as the Honda/Garmin Satnav frequently gets lost, taking shortcuts across fields and failing to turn off at junctions when I do.
Please - Has anyone here had this problem and found a solution? as the Honda main dealer in Norwich is unable to solve this and the Honda UK. MD fails to even respond to my request for help.
It is so frustrating as I could never trust it on a long unfamiliar journey.
To make matters worse since the purchase I have discovered that the Map is only updated once a year!
The displayed speed limits are at least 18 months out of date on local 'A roads'
Another problem - The 'My Honda' dongle which sent very impressive reports to mobile phone but then stopped working after a few months.
This all spoils what could otherwise be an enjoyable car.

This reply isn't strictly relevant but I have had an issue with a stand alone Tom Tom sat nav which gets me lost in Northwich in Cheshire. It takes me into the grounds of a shopping centre and gets me totally lost suggesting nonsensical turns and directions. It's only in this one part of this one town that it happens. The maps are fully up to date. I often wonder if it loses the signal in some way although it never indicates that it has lost signal.

Hope you get this sorted. Sat navs are mostly great but occasionally worse than useless!

Never had a problem with my Sat Nav, I wonder if yours needs the software maps reloading? I would get the dealer to do that as first step, unless its been tried already.

It is possible to update the maps yourself, the info is on the web including adding speed camera alerts.

Sounds to me that it is failing to get locks on at least three satellites.  This was typical in the early days of sat navs but you shouldn't be seeing that issue with modern ones.  I think you have a faulty unit.

Main dealer has checked maps and software up to date twice, as did I.
Today 23/11 I finally had acknowledgement from Honda customer relations that they are investigating.

Car going into dealer for 3 days in December. fingers crossed!

Put your issues in writing send recorded delivery and ask the dealer to rectify each issue without delay.
Good luck
