Buying a Honda Navigation Update for Your Civic

If you have bought a Honda Civic over the last couple of years and opted to have, or it already had, a Honda Navigation System built-in to the dashboard then you might occasionally experience the GPS getting lost. This is down to the fact that a GPS device is only as good as the maps loaded onto it, and for Honda car drivers that means you need to purchase Honda map updates at every year to keep completely current.

Thankfully it’s very easy to buy a Honda Navigation Update, and the new mapping software comes on DVD and is available online from the official Honda navigation store. Once you’ve received your new GPS disc you will need to install the new maps – and this is how you do that:

Installing a Honda Navigation Update Disc

  1. Turn on the ignition in your Honda Civic – please note, do not turn the car or GPS device off during the install process.
  2. Eject your existing Honda Navigation DVD and insert the new one.
  3. Wait for an onscreen prompt which will ask you to enter your unique authentication code – you can find this on the DVD case.
  4. The new map updates will now install – be aware this could take anything up to an hour to complete.
